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.
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 has worked extensively on issues related to drug policy and criminal justice policy.
