We are about to experience the end of Cannabis prohibition in Canada. But as Canada is made up of provinces and territories which each will be responsible for their own legislation on how it is produced, cultivated and sold this leaves for a lot of questions. This is where Joint Encounters is here for you. We aim to be a for front on all news cannabis locally, federally, and globally. 

Come and join us on this fantastic journey into the world of cannabis. Whether it's information you are after or some fun and enlightening discussion we look to keep you entertained and coming back for more. We really want to work on building a dialog on this subject. Both sides are welcome to discuss their sides and hopefully we can all learn something and become better people from it. As time progresses we look to do some live casting from locations where we will invite listeners and bystanders to join in with their thoughts and opinions. We will also be having a wide range of guests within the industry in different fields. 

So now that you have a little idea of what we are doing here is a little something about each of your hosts.
