Matt Maurer was quoted in StratCann on cannabis smoking lounges
Matt Maurer, Chair of our Cannabis Law Group and of our Franchise Law Group, spoke to StratCann on cannabis smoking lounges.
Doug Ford says he doesn’t like the idea of cannabis smoking lounges, at least outside.
In response to a question during a press conference, Ford initially began by saying he believes the market should decide the fate of cannabis stores, not the government, before pivoting to his dislike of the idea of areas where people can smoke cannabis.
“There are loopholes,” cannabis lawyer Matt Maurer told StratCann recently. “And by loopholes, I mean there are locations that are suitable, and not technically prohibited.” It’s that ambiguity that has allowed something like Behind the Bend to operate successfully he says, but he also notes that the legal questions around it are far from settled.
“If we just meet up in the parking lot once a week and smoke a joint, no problem,” he says. “If you turn that into a business, then the question from a legal perspective is, what’s the difference?”
