July 6, 2020 | Too Much of a Good Thing?

As culture wars - and a pandemic - continue to ravage the US - the cannabis sector is still chugging along. And there appears to be no such thing as a slow week - even in the midst of Canada Day and Independence Day holidays.

One trend to watch on the Canadian front: Is the expansion of cannabis retailers considered too much of a good thing? Some in Saskatchewan and Toronto seem to think so.

A busy week on BofC, with a check-in with the experts at CannDelta today, a deep dive into cannabis retail design tomorrow with Vetrina Group, a Wednesday session with BDSA, a view of retailer ERBN Cannabis on Thursday and ending the week with another session about privacy and data protection with ALCiT.
