Matt Maurer speaks to Lexpert about the first year of legalized recreational cannabis

As recreational cannabis comes to its first anniversary, Lexpert magazine checked in with co-chair of Torkin Manes' Cannabis Law Group, Matt Maurer. 

“The initial lottery in Ontario was a roller coaster. Our clients were gearing up for an open application system only to have the provincial government switch to a lottery system at the 11th hour due to national product shortages. Once the lottery results were posted, it was a whirlwind. The timelines were very compressed and we were (fortunately) dealing with a lot of lottery clients all at once."
