Students in Professor Diane Labelle’s French language seminar on cannabis law, CML4504E, La réglementation du cannabis, had the opportunity to visit local producer HEXO Corp. on Monday, October 15 ahead of cannabis legalization taking effect in Canada. HEXO, which is located in Masson-Angers, Quebec produces cannabis products for medical clients and the adult-use community. Students had the opportunity to visit the company’s 310,000 sq. ft. facility and obtain a hands-on, experiential learning experience that few other people in the country can claim.
The Faculty’s Cannabis Law courses have been extremely well received by students. Professor Labelle’s seminar is full at 20 students, and the Winter 2019 seminar, which will be taught by Joël Dubois and Megan Wallace from Perley-Robertson, Hill & McDougall LLP, also has a full slate of students registered, with more than 65 on the waiting list!
