Magazines Canada Releases Cannabis Advertising Whitepaper

It is now legal to own cannabis in Canada, but is it legal to advertise it? Do cannabis industry magazines operate under the same restrictions as consumer titles? Magazines Canada members have been asking these questions, and we have delivered an answer with this whitepaper, Cannabis Promotion in Canada. The whitepaper was authored by law firm McCarthy Tétrault, which also contributed to Magazines Canada’s Definitive Guide to Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation.

Before you accept an ad that will land your magazine in legal hot water, read this guide to the Cannabis Act and cannabis regulations as they pertain to both consumer and B2B magazines.
