    1. DAVID CRAM; Professor, Okanagan College Faculty of Business Administration

    Topic: Cannabis at your Course: Developing a golf-facility marijuana policy

    With legalized cannabis on the horizon in 2017, Prof. David Cram began teaching one of Canada's first courses analyzing the marijuana industry through the Okanagan College School of Business, focusing the emerging economic impacts of legalization, including effects on auxiliary industries. Now that legalization has taken effect, golf facilities need to consider a variety of factors in determining a policy on patrons consuming cannabis on site. Cram will examine these key considerations to help facilities develop an approach to marijuana that suits each location's needs.
