CANADA ISSUES IMPORT / EXPORT BULLETIN

Canada issued an informational bulletin on the import and export of marijuana by licensed producers.  The bulletin indicates that licensed producers may import or export marijuana in very limited circumstances such as importing starting materials or exporting a unique strain for research purposes.  Licensed producers will not be able to export cannabis to foreign markets where recreational use is legal.

Licensed producers that are seeking to import or export marijuana must file an application.  When determining whether to grant the application, the Canadian government will consider several factors including Canada's obligations under international treaties; whether it is consistent with applicable regulations; whether the receiving country has issued an import permit; and the risks to public safety.
