Though Health Canada finalized its new regulations on advertising cannabis products in June, it didn’t clarify them. That’s leaving a lot of people with questions.
- New rules demand a promotional “brand element” be equal to or smaller than 300cm2, roughly equivalent to the surface area of a shoebox lid.
- Though Health Canada said storefront signs are not considered promotional in nature, they would not specify what other things to which this new restriction applies.
- Retailers say they’ve received no clarification or guidance from Health Canada, whom they say has not communicated with them about the changes.
- Tim Hortons blocked wifi access to legal REC websites, but allowed access to some illicit Mail Order Marijuana sites.
