NICHE this Week: 5 Things You Need to Know

As you kick off the week, here are five things making news in the cannabis industry:

  • BotaniQ News: We're announcing finalists in the Power 10 of the Canadian Cannabis Industry Awards! Congrats to ‘Innovator’ finalists Hexo's Adam Miron, Ample Organics' John Prentice and Cannabis OneFive's Scott Samuel! Read more about their impressive accomplishments. And, congrats to ‘Under 30’ finalists Simon Grigenas of BRNT Designs, Philip Kwong of 3 Carbon Extractions and Joel Semczyszyn of Rubikon Blockchain Corp. Check out their work.

  • NICHE Event News: Have you got your tickets yet for our Cannabis & Our Community forum in Toronto this month? We'll provide the latest insights and updates on what to expect with legalization. Check out the great program and speakers we have lined up for you and get your tickets today!

  • ICYMI: 'Cannabis will not be allowed on military aircraft or ships.' National Defence released its cannabis policy and regulations last week which outline how the military will severely restrict — and in some cases prohibit — the use of recreational cannabis.

  • BC municipalities will debate this week whether to ask the province for a 40 per cent cut of its share of federal recreational cannabis tax revenue for the first two years of legalization.

  • Food for Thought: All eyes are on Canada. Our country is a litmus test for whether governments can stamp out illicit sales, transfer billions of dollars in revenue to an emerging industry, generate taxes and create jobs.
