In Spring 2017, the Government of Canada plans to introduce legislation legalizing and regulating cannabis, with the provinces and territories possibly playing a leading role in its wholesale distribution and retail sale.What does Alberta need to do to prepare for the legalization of cannabis? Should 18-year-olds be able to buy it? What health and social problems might arise? Where should it be sold? Will it be a “cash cow” for the province
