Matt Maurer speaks to The GrowthOp about cannabis in the western provinces

With the Liberal party staying in Parliament Hill as a minority government, talks of western provinces separating from Canada are growing.

The movement, known as “Wexit” or “western exit,” proposes Alberta and Saskatchewan leave the country.

Matt Maurer, partner and vice chair of the cannabis law group, Torkin Manes LLP, calls the prairie provinces “their own entities to begin with” seeing as provinces can choose how they govern cannabis.

But he also thinks the ‘Wexit’ provinces could struggle.

“Who do they export to? You can’t export to the states, most don’t have a recreational market that allows for it … they’re doing business with a government of a new entity that didn’t exist before,” he said in a phone interview.
