Hamilton Spectator, 15 May 2017 - As the Trudeau government works overtime to legalize recreational marijuana in Canada by the summer of 2018, there's a huge job to be done outside Parliament. Health officials, educators, parents and the government must somehow persuade young Canadians to swear off a drug that will suddenly be legal for adults all around them to use for fun and relaxation.

North Bay Nugget, 10 May 2017 - Be careful! This was the message to users of illegal drugs from the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit. Drug overdoses have killed hundreds of people in British Columbia. The most recent report shows that 120 died in March of this year. The local warning came as a result of a man using tainted cocaine. He was taken to the North Bay Regional Health Centre. He was given large doses of naloxone. It probably saved his life. Drug users are being told to have a friend standing by when they ingest drugs. If something goes wrong the friend can dial 911 and perhaps save a life.



CN ON: Column: Drugs And Federal Politics A Combustible Mix

Sat, 06 May 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Toronto Star, 06 May 2017 - No one plans to acquire a drug problem over the course of a lifetime - and neither do governments. Yet Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government is nearing its midpoint in power surrounded by drug problems: serious issues to confront about legal, illegal and almost-legal substances.

CN AB: OPED: Regulating Marijuana Is A Fool's Errand

Mon, 08 May 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Medicine Hat News, 08 May 2017 - The good news: an absurd prohibition on pot is about to end.

Mon, 01 May 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Business In Vancouver, 01 May 2017 - Street-level 4-20 concerns are about to shift from Vancouver's Sunset Beach to B.C. C-suites. The looming legalization in Canada of marijuana's recreational use pretty much extinguishes the marijuana criminalization protest aspect of the annual smoke-in.
