Fri, 21 Apr 2017 07:00:00 GMTLethbridge Herald, 21 Apr 2017 - There was a cloud of smoke at Galt Gardens Thursday as hundreds gathered to smoke marijuana during the annual 4/20 celebration. Every year on April 20, Canadians gather for pro-pot events, but it seems that cannabis activists may soon be getting what they want as the Government of Canada has proposed the Cannabis Act, which would legalize and regulate cannabis use.
Sat, 22 Apr 2017 07:00:00 GMTGlobe and Mail, 22 Apr 2017 - A siege-like atmosphere pervades cannabis shops still in operation as they contend with threats from armed thieves, and the city After the battering ram smashed through the front door, the officers quickly rounded up everyone and handcuffed them inside the small shop at Yonge and Wellesley.
Sat, 22 Apr 2017 07:00:00 GMTGlobe and Mail, 22 Apr 2017 - It seems there is no task in Canada as thankless as legalizing marijuana. Last week, the Liberals announced their plans to fulfill their campaign promise and do just that - by July 1, 2018, at the latest - and a chorus of complaints went round the country. People opposed to legalization of any kind, public policy-failure aficionados, were of course displeased. Those convinced that anything short of the government passing Bill 420 on the left-hand side, printed on small white papers, mandating that their local MP spark up a doobie for them when they get home from work is an infringement of their fundamental rights were also put out. No one seems happy.

They didn't have time to stop.
Thu, 20 Apr 2017 07:00:00 GMTWinnipeg Free Press, 20 Apr 2017 - With legalization on the horizon, today's 4/20 gathering will be a celebration For as long as anyone can remember, the annual 4/20 gathering at the Manitoba legislature grounds was about protesting the country's harsh marijuana laws. Police would be out in force to keep an eye on a rag-tag group of stoners, rarely arresting anyone unless things got out of hand.

The federal government has introduced legislation to legalize marijuana by July 1, 2018, fulfilling one of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's election campaign promises. But there are still a lot of questions regarding the details of a legal pot industry.
Thu, 20 Apr 2017 07:00:00 GMTCochrane Eagle, 20 Apr 2017 - Last week the federal government announced it will move forward with its highly-anticipated and contentious pledge to legalize recreational marijuana. What might possibly be the most memorable piece of legislation undertaken by the Justin Trudeau Liberals will most certainly result in polarizing political and personal stances.

But this proposal is not legalization - it is continued criminalization, with new harsher laws designed to punish even more people. Canadians want marijuana to be legal because they grew tired of seeing family and friends arrested and charged, then denied job opportunities and travel rights. They became frustrated seeing police spend their tax dollars every year going after people for pot, when they should be solving serious crimes.
