Robert W.E. Laurie is an international lawyer, qualified in England and called to the British Columbia Bar. Mr. Laurie founded Ad Lucem Law Corporation in Vancouver in 2013 and his legal practice focuses on commercial business, government, regulatory issues, plus charter and constitutional legalities surrounding cannabis and psychedelic plant medicines.

Mr. Laurie has been working and advocating tirelessly as a lawyer to improve medical patient access to cannabis, psychedelic and sacred plant medicines and to facilitate the reform of drug laws for the betterment of society. He and his legal practice, Ad Lucem Law Corporation, recently joined Dr. Bruce Tobin’s Charter litigation team and the TheraPsil Alliance, who are challenging in Federal Court the constitutional validity of the government’s absolute prohibition concerning compassionate medical access to psilocybin. His goal is to help provide more options for doctors and treatments for patients dealing with end-of-life anxiety and depression, and other types of treatment-resistant depression, addiction, and PTSD.
“We are excited that Robert will continue his role as Chair of Nova Mentis’ Advisory Board along with the added responsibility of Psychedelics Regulatory Advisor,” said Will Rascan, CEO & President of NOVA. “There are very few individuals with Robert’s in-depth experience and contacts in both the psychedelics and cannabis sectors. With Robert having joined Dr. Bruce Tobin’s Charter litigation team, he brings a unique perspective which is evident in his recent Psyched2020 webinar presentation.”
