Are you age or majority in your province (19+ or 18+ in Alberta and Quebec)?
Quick Hits is our way of gaining real-time perspectives and insights into issues affecting and driving the Canadian cannabis sector. Today, we were joined by Janet Yale, President and CEO of The Arthritis Society. Janet previously served as executive vice president at TELUS, and president and CEO of the Canadian Cable Television Association, along with other c-suite roles in private, public and not-for-profit organizations. Currently Janet chairs the Arthritis Alliance of Canada and is Past-Chair of the Ontario Trillium Foundation. The Arthritis Society is, in many ways, leading the charge to educate patients and physicians about the medicinal value of cannabis - and conducting original research to back that up. We asked Janet what drives here and the Arthritis Society to be so engaged in the medicinal conversation, what they are doing to educate workplaces to more easily cover medicinal cannabis and if she is concerned about patients being left behind as adult use recreational cannabis becomes legal this year. It was a great time to connect with Janet as this week, the Arthritis Society announced a workplace toolkit to educate employers about how to provide medical benefits to employers for medical cannabis.
