CN PI: Editorial: Managing Marijuana

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Journal-Pioneer, 09 Dec 2017 - The P.E.I. Liquor Control Commission is a good choice for managing Prince Edward Island's new marijuana stores. The LCC is well equipped for developing policy and providing oversight. It is also good that the provincial government has decided its pot sales will be conducted from different storefronts than its liquor sales.



CN AB: Editorial: High Time For Province

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Calgary Sun, 13 Dec 2017 - As we stumble down the cobblestones on the uneven and relatively unchartered path to marijuana legalization, we're bound to trip once or twice. But so far, we have to give props to the provincial government for appearing to get it right.



CN BC: Editorial: At Least They're Trying

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Langley Times, 08 Dec 2017 - A funeral home in Aldergrove decided they needed to do something after seeing so many heartbroken families lose loved ones to a drug overdose. The funeral directors have put together an awareness and prevention campaign that does aim to shock people about how deadly drugs are. In an unusual move, the BC Coroner's Office has come out against Alternative Funeral and Cremation Service's awareness campaign, saying scare tactics don't work, they only further stigmatize drug users.



CN BC: Editorial: Legalization Means Rules

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Penticton Western, 08 Dec 2017 - Legal doesn't mean light up whenever you want Ever since, and probably long before, the federal Liberals started the process to legalize marijuana, some people have been equating legalization with deregulation.



CN MB: Column: No Logic Behind Cannabis Law

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Winnipeg Free Press, 07 Dec 2017 - Province's age restriction, home-growing ban lack common sense GOVERNMENTS in Canada have been playing politics with marijuana for some time now. The promise to legalize cannabis helped Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his federal Liberals achieve a majority government in 2015, and now provincial governments across the country are coming to grips with legalization according to their own political principles.



CN BC: Column: Why Liquor Stores Need To Sell Pot

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Daily Courier, 07 Dec 2017 - The B.C. NDP government tipped its hand Tuesday on how it plans to regulate the legal sale of marijuana. Besides setting the age at 19 to buy, possess and consume pot, similar to alcohol and tobacco, the province said the B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch will be the sole supplier, distributing pot to private and public stores in the same manner it already does with booze. The government didn't address exactly who will sell pot but it looks like the NDP will take a different tact from the model already laid out in Ontario, where legal pot will only be available in about 150 stores, all operated by that province's liquor control board.



CN AB: Column: Let The Weed Grow

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Sherwood Park News, 07 Dec 2017 - The County of Strathcona prides itself on being a "champion for advancing diverse agricultural business." We hope that you keep this spirit in mind when voting on the request to place a moratorium on cannabis operations under intensive horticulture in Strathcona County. As a county that puts priority on being a place that is open for business and investment, this moratorium is counter-intuitive to Strathcona's strategic priorities and goals. With agricultural expertise and well-honed entrepreneurial spirit, Alberta is poised to be a leader in the Canadian cannabis industry.



US TX: Editorial: Get The Ball Rolling To Expand Medical Marijuana In

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, 01 Dec 2017 - Within weeks an estimated 150,000 Texas patients suffering from untreatable epilepsy will have a new means of relief. Cannabidiol (CBD), a form of medical marijuana, will finally be delivered to patients who qualify under the state's very strict guidelines. The CBD reduces or halts convulsive epileptic seizures but doesn't get the patients stoned.



CN AB: Column: Slap-Dash Approach To Pot Legalization

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Lethbridge Herald, 01 Dec 2017 - On Monday, Nov. 27, The Cannabis Act passed third reading. This was the last vote in the House of Commons before the legislation goes to the Senate for review and approval. The government's plan is to have marijuana on the market for recreational use starting July 1, 2018. I voted "no" to this legislation. Here's why:
