The House of Commons Health Committee will reconvene in Ottawa a week ahead of Parliament resuming to hold full-day hearings on the government’s marijuana legalization bill.
The committee is holding the marathon session of meetings to get a head start on its study of Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act.
“It’s going to be all day… nine to five and then some,” health committee chair, Liberal MP Bill Casey, told CTV News.
The House of Commons is set to reconvene for its fall sitting the week of Sept. 18, but the committee of MPs will be back to hear witnesses starting on Sept. 11 and through Sept. 15.
“Our focus will be on the health impacts,” Casey said, though the bill does include criminal justice elements.
