Invictus MD Strategies (“Invictus MD” or the “Company”) (TSXV: IMH; OTC: IVITF; FRA: 8IS1) Today, Invictus MD updated shareholders that it is taking steps to monitor the government policy development process in advance of the legalization of recreational cannabis that is expected in July 2018.
“There are a number of authorities across the country that are developing policies and regulations to support the successful legalization of recreational cannabis. Invictus MD is monitoring these jurisdictions and will engage officials when necessary,” stated Dan Kriznic, Chairman and CEO of Invictus MD.
Invictus MD in Ontario
Invictus MD has been closely monitoring the recreational cannabis framework released by the Ontario government. Some highlights of Ontario’s proposed cannabis framework are:

  • – Ontario will mirror the Liquor Control Board of Ontario model for retail sales
    – Purchase and consumption age will be 19 years old
    – Cannabis will not be sold alongside alcohol or in the same location
    – Current private dispensaries are illegal and will be shut down
    – Recreational cannabis use will be permitted in private residences only for now
    – Ontario will operate a scale up approach to storefront retail locations with 40 stores initially, 80 stores by the end of the first year and 120 stores by 2020
    – Online access will be available at the outset
    – Retail locations will resemble the early days of LCBO locations where product is not displayed and kept behind the counter for ordering
    – The new entity will only purchase from federally licensed producers within Canada
    – The government is not speculating on supply and possible increases in demand at the moment
    – The government is only permitting the smoking and ‘vaping’ of cannabis, no edibles at this time

Invictus MD in Alberta
Representatives from Invictus MD attended the Alberta Cannabis Secretariat’s Framework session in Edmonton last week where we were able to monitor stakeholder reaction to Alberta’s framework, including:


  • – Oversight and enforcement of regulations will be carried out by the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission
    – The government plans to act as the wholesaler and clearinghouse for all cannabis sales through the AGLC using a “postage stamp” model for wholesaling the product – the wholesale price would be identical throughout the province.
    – The government wishes to ensure that both large and small producers can compete to supply the market with the AGLC by acting as a single buyer.
    – There has not been a decision as to whether the sale of cannabis should be made by government-owned stores, or by private retailers.
    – Purchase and consumption age will be 18 years old and will initially only be available in physical stores, not through online sales.
    – Use of the product will not be permitted at retail locations and are not planning to permit lounges and cafes.

Legislative Update on Bill C-45 (Federal Cannabis Act)
