In an email Q&A interview with The Hill Times, Minister for Border Security and Organized Crime Prevention Bill Blair (Scarborough Southwest, Ont.) said the illegal market won’t be displaced overnight but will continue to shrink. He said there’s been a 65 per cent disruption so far. Mr. Blair also dismissed the notion that there is a national supply shortage, citing statistics that cannabis inventories have exceeded retail purchases. However, he said as the market matures, the localized supply chain issues will shrink. This interview has been edited and condensed. What are the federal government’s goals for cannabis policy in 2019? “...

Cannabis boom brings recruitment challenges for employers
(Canada, Cannabis, Facilities, Growing, Legalization, Security) As the cannabis industry rapidly grows, employers in the sector are feeling overwhelmed with the sheer volume of employees they need to recruit. A network for human resources professionals in the cannabis industry, called Cannabis at Work, was launched on Friday to meet the need. It aims to provide a forum for employers in the regulated cannabis industry to learn and build relationships. The sector faces many challenges with new licensed producers entering the market on a regular basis and existing ones expanding their facilities, says Alison McMahon, chief executive officer at Cannabis at Work. The influx of new employees means a greater administrative burden for employers helping candidates settle in to their new roles and enrolling them in their benefits plans, she says. As well, employers in the sector have to attract and retain highly skilled talent, says McMahon. Specifically, finding people to fill niche roles like cultivating or growing the product, which is challenging, she...

(Canada, Cannabis, Hemp, Investments, Legalization, News, Production, Products, Recreational, Research, United States, Washington, Funding) The marijuana market has undoubtedly seen a massive boom over the course of the past few years. One of the major benefits of this has been the changing of legislation across the board in places like Canada and various states throughout the U.S. Although it is still federally legal in the U.S. and many places around the world, the new market has opened up a large amount of opportunity for those looking to research the substance. One of the issues with lacking laws to allow marijuana’s use is the fact that it makes it extremely difficult to study. For a drug with so much potential to treat everything from cancer to insomnia, one would think that research would be one of the priorities. Researching the substance however has been extremely difficult for those looking to find new medicines and cures for many of the most popular ailments we face on a daily basis. Although this may seem bleak, studies are showing that the popularity of cannabis around the world is allowing for the...
