What will legal pot mean for you?

The legalization of cannabis in Canada is fast approaching. Why has the legalization of cannabis become so complicated? Will the pot counterculture be erased by a multi-billion dollar corporate industry? Will legalization for adults end up punishing youth?

Victoria-based lawyer Kirk Tousaw – who is a major force behind the legalization of cannabis in Canada – joins us in discussion on Friday, February 16 at 7:30 PM at ArtSpring.

Tousaw is the go-to person for litigation concerning marijuana, up to and including the Supreme Court of Canada. A long-standing and influential proponent of law reform, he is a founding board member of Sensible BC and a former board member of the BC Civil Liberties Association.

Tousaw has worked extensively on issues related to drug policy and criminal justice policy. He has regularly consulted with Health Canada on matters of cannabis law reform and has participated in various roundtables with the Cannabis Legalization Task Force.
