While the prime minister and the premiers will focus largely on economic issues when they sit down next week, the Prime Minister’s Office confirmed Thursday that legalizing cannabis will also be discussed.
Sources tell CBC News a number of provinces were already planning on raising the issue during the final afternoon session of Tuesday’s first ministers meeting.
But the PMO said while the schedule is still being finalized, marijuana legalization has been added to the afternoon discussion following roundtables on job creation, tax reform and an update on NAFTA talks.
Many provinces are nervous about the federal government’s timeline of legalizing pot by next July.
