Episode 21: Let's Talk Pot (LIVE)
May 24 17
Brief Remarks goes LIVE again in the Canada 2020 Studio to talk pot - or, as we were corrected, cannabis - with the Hon. Anne McLellan and Dr. Mark Ware. Based on their report to Health Canada about the legalization and regulation of cannabis in Canada, Anne and Mark gave our audience a detailed portrait of where Canada stands with legislating cannabis nationwide, what bottlenecks we face in that process, and what cautious steps the government can take in the years to come. Recorded in our Studio in Ottawa on May 19th, Susan also helped moderate a fantastic audience Q&A session which touched on everything from the medicinal use of cannabis, marketing restrictions, worker's safety, concerns from the first nations community and more.
