CN ON: Column: Teenaged Son Refuses To Give Up His Daily Pot Habit

Tue, 26 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Hamilton Spectator, 26 Dec 2017 - TEENAGED SON REFUSES TO GIVE UP HIS DAILY POT HABIT Q: Our 16-year-old son smokes dope daily. We see his grades slipping from last year.

CN NS: Column: Stinky Little Secret

Sat, 23 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Cape Breton Post, 23 Dec 2017 - Weed, both smoked and unsmoked, is more pungent than it once was There's a dirty little secret about legalized marijuana, one that could become an issue in neighbourhoods across the country. Well, maybe it would be better to describe it as a stinky little secret, but one that's likely to become very familiar - and maybe too familiar.

CN ON: Editorial: Don't Delay Cannabis Law

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Toronto Star, 27 Dec 2017 - The most important social and legal change in Canada during 2018 will almost certainly be the legalization of marijuana. This move, the boldest by the Trudeau government so far, will end almost a century of prohibition of cannabis that has resulted in a great deal of misery while delivering few benefits in return. The House of Commons has passed two laws that will make the consumption of marijuana legal while toughening the rules against abuse of the drug. The prime minister now says his goal is to put them into effect by "next summer."



US CA: Editorial: The Lack Of Health Research Into Marijuana Makes It

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Los Angeles Times, 27 Dec 2017 - In advance of the legalization of recreational marijuana sales on Jan. 1, there have been lots of debates over the details of the cannabis business. How many feet should pot shops be from schools or daycare centers? How many acres may a marijuana farmer cultivate? Who should be eligible for a license to sell and who shouldn't? But there's been much less discussion over an equally important question raised by the end of prohibition in California: What is the right public health message to send to adults who can now legally buy and use marijuana? Voters overwhelmingly passed Proposition 64 last year and polls continue to show broad support for legalization. But just because marijuana is legal doesn't mean it is risk-free.

CN NS: Column: Make No Mistake, Not All Polls Are Created Equal

Tue, 19 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Truro Daily News, 19 Dec 2017 - They're great for entertainment purposes, but then again, so are fortune-tellers and horoscopes. If you're looking at public opinion polls to predict things, well, there are wins and there are losses. And lately, more losses.



CN NF: Editorial: CRA Poll Dashes Pot-Revenue High Hopes

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Western Star, 20 Dec 2017 - A Corporate Research Associates (CRA) survey last week probably sent chills down the spines of finance ministers and premiers in Atlantic Canada. After they left Ottawa earlier in the week with a lucrative tax-sharing deal on the sale of legalized marijuana, their visions of windfall revenues were quickly dashed with a reality check. The CRA survey suggests that 20 per cent of Atlantic Canadians plan to buy pot once it becomes legal July 1. It's about the same percentage that uses pot today - illegally.



CN ON: OPED: Marijuana Legislation Will Not Achieve Its Objectives

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Hill Times, 20 Dec 2017 - Bill C-45 is horrible legislation which will not achieve its objectives and should never see the light of day. The Senate will do its job and thoroughly study the Bill, but Canadians will be well-served if it is defeated, writes Alberta Senator Betty Unger. It's difficult to remember the last time the federal government and the provinces came to an agreement on revenue sharing in a single day. But that's what happened last week when the feds agreed to give the provinces 75 per cent of tax revenue generated by the sale of marijuana.
