A group of alcohol and cannabis companies have formed an industry alliance to push for changes to proposed rules governing pot-infused beverages before edibles become legal in the coming months.
The Cannabis Beverage Producers Alliance is arguing for, among other things, the ability to produce pot-based drinks in the same facilities where non-cannabis beverages are made.
Under Health Canada’s proposed rules for edibles, pot-infused drinks and food must be made in a separate facility.
Ottawa has finished a consultation process for its proposed rules, but has not yet released the final version.
The alliance has 10 member companies and is led by former Nova Scotia premier Darrell Dexter.
