Technology, Privacy, and Regulation In An Evolving Industry (Webinar)


The cannabis industry is constantly evolving, with companies always looking to find innovative new ways to bring their products to customers. Exciting new partnerships such as between Leafly and Uber Eats to bring delivery to customers in Toronto are genuinely game changing.

How can cannabis companies stay ahead of the curve and identify the challenges such developments might present? What are the potential regulatory and privacy issues in regards to customers sometimes highly sensitive personal information? Join speakers from Uber, Truss Beverages and Torkin Manes to explore the intersection between Technology, Privacy, and Cannabis Regulation.

In this expert webinar, we will discuss how Uber and Leafly protect customer’s personal information, with the purchase or use of cannabis sometimes still stigmatised, as well as risks associated with cross-border information transfers, mean that cannabis retailers must exercise caution before sharing this information.

In addition to this intersection between technology and cannabis products, there has been a proliferation of new and innovative cannabis products entering the market. Our panel will discuss the regulation of cannabis infused beverages, regulatory challenges, risk management, and current trends.
