Lawyer John Conroy, who has been involved in major Canadian cannabis legalization cases (including the Allard decision, which legalized non-dried forms of MED) said his next constitutional challenge will be the federal government’s regulations on edibles, extracts, and topicals.
- He said the edibles-package limit of 10mg THC was far too little for MED users—who do not have access to edibles directly from the LPs they’re required to buy from, and whose edibles will be subject to the same limits. (There is no distinction between MED and REC edibles.)
- Conroy will challenge the ban under section 7 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, saying it can “‘arbitrarily deprive’ medicinal cannabis patients of their right to security of the person.”
- The US reversed the lifetime ban on a Canadian who carried CBD oil over the border (refusing to explain why, as usual), but that doesn’t make it a good idea for you to try.

- Edmonton police fined a store for selling CBD vape items but did not charge the owners, who “seemed to genuinely be under the impression that they were allowed to sell vape products containing CBD.”
