The Cannabis Bubble

Driven by a media frenzy of promise and potential, the Canadian cannabis industry was a market favourite as Canada moved towards legalization. But tides have turned.

On this week’s episode of Legalized, we are joined by Globe and Mail business journalists, Mark Rendell and Tim Kiladze whose recent article “All dried up: How Bay Street cashed in on the cannabis frenzy before the carnage” takes an in-depth look at the industry’s current state of play. Listen in to learn all about we got here in relation to the promise that surrounded the industry a year ago and what the industry can do to reclaim its position of strength.

This is Legalized, The Cannabis Bubble.

Sleeping with an Elephant

The legalization of cannabis gave Canadian Licensed Producers a leg up on their counterparts in the U.S. and globally. But as the industry grows south of the border, is Canada’s first-mover advantage at risk?

On this week’s episode of Legalized, we are joined by Elisa Kearney, a partner at Davies Ward & Vineberg LLP and member of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce’s National Cannabis Working Group; as well as Michell Osak, a partner at MNP LLP and a leader of MNP’s cannabis consulting practice. Our panelists, who have advised businesses on both sides of the border, provide industry-leading insights into cannabis in the United States, and reverberations in Canada.

The Politics of Cannabis

Welcome to the season finale of Legalized. Season 3 followed the early days of cannabis legalization as this historic promise became a reality. After spending the season exploring market trends, media developments and industry players, we took this episode to look back at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s promise to legalize recreational cannabis and the political repercussions of legalization at the federal, provincial and municipal levels of government.

Navigator Executive Chairman Jaime Watt and Principal Amanda Galbraith, two seasoned political veterans, join host Danielle Parr to discuss the role cannabis played in the 2015 election, and how politicians at all three levels of government will aim to frame legalization going forward. We look at the pressure points, political reverberations and questions as the federal election approaches and as provinces and municipalities continue scrambling to get their houses in order. You won’t want to miss the insights, analysis and predictions.
