CN AB: Column: Alberta Pot Rules Largely Workable

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Calgary Sun, 18 Nov 2017 - The Alberta government's proposed rules for selling legal marijuana are a bit fuddy-duddy. For the most part, they're pretty good. Private retailers will handle in-person sales; unionized government workers will be in charge of online purchases. (Please allow six to eight weeks for delivery).

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Edmonton Sun, 17 Nov 2017 - Pot rules largely workable but ban on weed sales at liquor stores makes no sense The Alberta government's proposed rules for selling legal marijuana are a bit fuddy-duddy.

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Record, 16 Nov 2017 - Politics Everything is political in the months before an election. And that's especially true for where the pot stores are going to be located. Earlier this month, 14 locations were announced for provincially-run recreational cannabis stores.



Canada: Editorial: Legal, But Not If You're At The Wheel

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Globe and Mail, 15 Nov 2017 - The busywork of readying the country for legalized cannabis continues apace, and Ottawa has gotten around to mapping out the murky territory that is stoned driving. Proposed legislative changes would create a two-tiered approach to setting the maximum amount of THC, cannabis's main psychoactive element, allowable in drivers' blood. Motorists measured with two to five nanograms of THC per millilitre of blood within two hours of being stopped would be subjected to a fine; those above would be treated criminally, mirroring the way many provinces deal with alcohol and driving.

CN ON: Editorial: Drug Dealer Earned Stiff Sentence

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Record, 15 Nov 2017 - There are two things to be said about the 11-year-prison sentence handed out last week to Kitchener fentanyl dealer Erin Vezina. First, it is as hard as nails; indeed it's the most severe punishment involving a fentanyl-related crime ever handed out in Waterloo Region. Second, this is what real justice looks like. Bravo, Justice Melanie Sopinka, for your wise decision. In only a few years, the abuse of illicit opioids, especially fentanyl, has exploded into a national crisis that is believed to have claimed 2,458 lives across Canada in 2016 alone.



CN ON: Column: Pro-Pot Cops All About The Money

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Toronto Star, 15 Nov 2017 - If St. Paul, one of the most virulent and effective enemies of early Christians could pull off the greatest about face in history and become the religion's most prolific proponent, then who am I to argue with former Toronto police chief Julian Fantino as a shill for the marijuana industry. Fantino, the macho, no-nonsense, law-and-order tough guy from Vaughan stood at a podium in his city Tuesday singing the virtues of - pot.
