Forum to discuss cannabis

BRANTFORD — Three guest speakers will be part of a panel Wednesday, to talk to the people of Brantford about what is coming down the pipe once recreational cannabis is officially legal in Canada this October.

A public education forum, hosted by the Brantford-Brant Women’s Liberal Club, is bringing presentations from the Government of Canada and hosting an audience question period with three people familiar with the cannabis industry.

Jodie Emery, wife of cannabis activist Marc Emery; Kathryn Kissinger of Brantford Human Resources and Jennifer Maccarone, Chief Quality Officer at Up Cannabis Inc. will be available to answer questions from the audience.

“This forum will give facts on why this is happening, what we can expect for how cannabis legalization and the regulation of its distribution and production will work in practice, and the challenges that will need to be managed as this goes into force,” said Donna Nelson, chair of the BBWLC.

The public meeting will be held Wednesday, August 15 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 90 at 21 Oak Street in Brantford.
