A very interesting and important case, especially in light of the #MeToo era.
This week on the Driving Law Podcast, I speak with Paul Doroshenko about the Abbott SoToxa’s approval and why it is problematic for Canadians.

I’m also pleased to announce that the Driving Law podcast is now part of the Cannabis Media Collective!
