Imperial Tobacco’s Eric Gagnon says it’s unfair that proposed packaging and branding rules for cannabis in Canada are not as strict as those for tobacco products

Many in the cannabis industry have argued that branding is needed for legal companies to distinguish themselves from illicit producers and sellers. Without this distinction, the government’s goal of taking supply from the black market will not succeed, they say.
Gagnon says it’s confusing that the government “recognizes these rights and arguments for the marijuana industry and not for the tobacco industry, which is already highly regulated.”
