This Thursday there will be an all important Senate vote - the last big hurdle to federal legalization. If it passes, I suspect everything will roll out rather quickly.
I have a Canadian developing an app to drive more traffic to local dispensaries. She is unfortunately playing a frustrating waiting game. She says:
"As I know you are aware, there are considerable design and coding hours that go into developing a mobile application. I have to be sure that the government isn’t going to ban it as soon as it launches. There are still a lot of unknowns as far as rules and regs go and it appears that there will be federal rules as well as provincial rules governing how cannabis can be marketed. Most ancillary businesses are able to proceed pre-legalization but because my app is a part of marketing & advertising it sits in a grey area that is constantly changing because the government really doesn’t know what the hell it is doing. "
If anyone has some insight I can pass along to her, I would appreciate it!
