CN ON: Editorial: Ontario Should Open Up On Pot Planning

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 07:00:00 GMT

The Beacon Herald, 19 Jun 2017 - With pot legalization about a year away, we can conclude that the Ontario government is working on a plan. Or at least a plan for a plan. And yes, the "Legalization of Cannabis Secretariat" exists and, apparently, is busily holding meetings. With whom, it won't say. But not the public. Not yet, anyhow.



CN MB: OPED: Province Should Control Marijuana Sales

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Winnipeg Free Press, 19 Jun 2017 - THE Trudeau government is set on legalizing marijuana by the summer of 2018. While they will enjoy the political payoff of appearing progressive on this matter, all of the associated problems and the logistics of doing so will fall on the shoulders of the provincial governments and their civic counterparts. I suggest the Manitoba provincial government draw lessons from the last time an illegal substance was legalized following Prohibition in the late 1920s, as well as from the current public health efforts to eliminate tobacco use in Canada as a means to guide their policy on marijuana.

US AZ: Marijuana Benefits Abound As New Policy Looms

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Tucson Weekly, 15 Jun 2017 - Despite the upheaval of the current presidential administration, some things just haven't changed, like acting DEA Chief Chuck Rosenberg's Obama-era insistence last month that "marijuana is not medicine." Though he also stated that he'd "be the last person to stand in the way" if medical uses of marijuana rise through the FDA process. (Here's where we count on Sue Sisley's research in Phoenix.)



CN BC: Editorial: Making P.G. Pot Central

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Prince George Citizen, 15 Jun 2017 - Five hundred years ago, back when Scotch was just whisky, almost everybody in Scotland could make and sell it. It was only 200 years ago, when the government started taxing sales, allowed the licensed distilleries to grow and shut down the bootleggers that Scotch started to become a thing. Today, of course, whisky is made around the world but only whisky from Scotland is allowed to call itself Scotch. The similarities between whisky in Scotland in the 18th and 19th centuries and marijuana in Prince George in 2017 are many. The residents of a somewhat isolated northern region that's not too far from major cities are heavy producers and consumers of a beloved intoxicant. The government decides to legalize the product, partly to recognize the will of the people, but mostly to turn it into a lucrative tax revenue stream.
