Product Information

For ease of navigation, this text follows the 15 Parts of the Cannabis Act. It features a detailed first chapter of the history of the cannabis prohibition, and a helpful list of non-Cannabis Act cannabis-related caselaw and resources in chapter 4.

The Cannabis Act was drafted using provisions from the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act, and the Food and Drug Act. Accordingly, in addition to case law under the Cannabis Act, the most relevant case law under each of these source Acts is examined to provide a more thorough interpretation of the Cannabis Act.

  • Co-authored by Professor Emeritus Alan Young, Osgoode Hall Law School
