The legal consumption cannabis is soon to be a reality in Canada. While much of the current discussion has centred about the sale of this soon to be legal commodity, the impact on many workplaces, in particular the military, police, first responders and others may be challenging in implementation. Join us for a multi-faceted discussion that will examine the context, challenges and concerns of one arm of society that is part of the safeguarding of lives and livelihoods for Canadians as the recreational use of cannabis becomes legal.

La consommation légale de cannabis doit bientôt être une réalité au Canada. Tandis qu’une grande partie de la discussion actuelle a centré de la vente de cannabis, l’impact sur beaucoup de lieux de travail, en particulier les forces militaires, la police, les premiers intervenantes et d’autres peuvent être stimulants dans la mise en œuvre. Joignez-nous pour une discussion à multiples facettes qui examinera le contexte, des défis et les préoccupations d’une partie de société qui fait partie de la protection de vies et des moyens de subsistance pour des Canadiens comme l’utilisation de cannabis devient légale.
