The event venue has been updated! The event will now be hosted at Terminal City Club, located at 837 W Hastings St. Vancouver.

In 2013, Uruguay became the first country in the modern era to legalize recreational cannabis.

In 2018, Canada is committed to becoming the second – and all eyes are on us!

A multi-billion dollar industry is about to come online this year, and it might be hard to wrap our heads around it all.

As the stigma slowly fades and regulations are introduced, the business opportunities in legal cannabis – and its unique challenges – may be crystalizing before our eyes.

But, how do businesspeople separate the facts from fiction, and the rumors from misinformation?

Join us on Thursday, April 26th for a panel discussion with recognized thought leaders in the legal cannabis space.

Our panel will feature speakers with cutting edge knowledge in production, retail, and the regulatory environment. This panel will provide us with a comprehensive overview of how this industry is evolving, and what opportunities and challenges we should expect.
