Matt Maurer quoted by Mugglehead Magazine on the poor disclosure of recreational cannabis sales data

Matt Maurer spoke to Mugglehead Magazine on the poor disclosure of recreational cannabis sales data. This is frustrating for researchers trying to study ways to improve Canadian cannabis policy.


The Crown corporation is committed to being as transparent as possible with cannabis sales data and leads all jurisdictions in Canada to produce a number of data tools that are made widely available, OCS senior director of communications Daffyd Roderick says.

Ontario cannabis lawyer Matt Maurer agrees that the OCS has gotten better at sharing its data in the past year.

However, the Torkin Manes attorney also argues that the agency unfairly claims it owns all cannabis retail data in the province — not the private stores themselves.

This allows the provincial government to monetize that information while at the same time arguably depriving store owners from being able to sell data they generate, Maurer said in an email.
