(Presentation) Canada does not require or regulate employee drug testing in potentially hazardous workplaces like manufacturing plants, on construction sites or for transportation businesses (including aircraft operators, taxis/rideshares or commercial vehicle operators such as trucks, trailers, etc.). However, there is a legal requirement to ensure that the workplace is safe and that the health and safety of workers and those they impact/serve, is paramount. Employers can be held accountable for any legal issues associated with employee drug (i.e. cannabis) and alcohol use while on the job or in the workplace. In light of legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada, who might hold liability and become accountable for related workplace accidents, injuries or deaths?
Join our panel of experts and learn what policies should be in place to represent employers when worst-case scenarios occur. Also, how can these policies assist in aiding and protecting the reputation of the cannabis sector from negative stigma witnessed in alcohol-related accidents? What resources are available for cannabis-sector participants to educate their networks, clients and related business owners on employment and health and safety risks in preparation for nation-wide cannabis accessibility and use? How can we promote positive cannabis-use policy development and enforcement in our own workplaces and beyond.

(Presentation) Mirsky will cover and uncover the reasons most cannabis brands are failing without even realizing it. Selling a few products here and there to few dispensaries isn’t enough to warrant a good brand, although the grower may have a much different opinion of that. While this topic isn’t created as a way to bash on what people have built, but more so for business owners to better understand how to take the right steps to navigate and or build there brand the right way the first time. As the industry grows, so should the companies in it. If they don’t they’ll be left in the smoke and faced with even harder growth challenges.
