The Sun Times, 18 Sep 2017 - When I was in high school we had a smoking area. My kids found that hard to believe, given that smoking on school property usually meant a trip to the principal's office today. But it's true. We had a smoking area. And students smoked tobacco and a few other things in the smoking area. Teachers in nearby classrooms complained of second hand smoke.

CN ON: Editorial: Up In Smoke

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Hamilton Mountain News, 14 Sep 2017 - The Ontario Liberals' plan to sell marijuana in government-operated stores may have provided some clarity on what has been a confusing strategy by the federal Liberals to legalize marijuana. But controlling weed like the province controls alcohol creates more problems than answers to what has been a hands-off approach both levels of government have managed on the issue. The entire roll out of the legalization of marijuana by the federal government has been botched with governments unsure about a distribution network or enforcement strategy.

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Ottawa Sun, 14 Sep 2017 - OTTAWA - Youth health experts are warning the federal government that its push to legalize recreational cannabis should be accompanied by extensive public-education and prevention campaigns that spell out the serious risks of pot consumption on adolescent brains.

CN ON: Editorial: Decriminalize All Drugs? Not A Bad Idea

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Toronto Star, 16 Sep 2017 - NDP leadership candidate Jagmeet Singh's recent promise that, as prime minister, he would move quickly to drop criminal penalties for possession or purchase of small amounts of all drugs will no doubt seem radical to many. Broad-based decriminalization would be a stark reversal after decades of increasingly punitive policies. And this would certainly add a layer of complication to the already-complicated task of legalizing marijuana, which Ottawa and the provinces are struggling to do by next summer. The Trudeau government's current position on decriminalization is understandable: Ottawa already has its hands full with pot.

CN ON: OPED: Government Goes For Reefer Monopoly Madness

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Sudbury Star, 15 Sep 2017 - It's the worst possible provincial legalization plan: Ontario's Liberal government has announced a state monopoly on the sale of legal nonmedical cannabis, combined with a massive crackdown on the existing cannabis industry.
