Canada: Cannabis Debate: Legal Pot Is Far Safer For Youth Than

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 07:00:00 GMT

Toronto Star, 16 Apr 2018 - Some remain skeptical the proposed Cannabis Act (Bill C-45) will achieve one of its primary objectives: protecting youth from cannabis-related harms. Some feel the minimum age should be higher than the minimum age for alcohol, worried that those under 25 seem more vulnerable to dependence and health problems linked to long-term, heavy use. Critics of the proposed minimum age may be overlooking another primary objective: displacing the black-market. Young adults aged 18 to 24 represent one third of the market. The act attempts to strike a balance between keeping marijuana away from minors and cash away from criminals.

US FL: Have You Changed Your Mind On Marijuana Like These Politicians

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 07:00:00 GMT

Sun-Sentinel, 17 Apr 2018 - It didn't get much notice because it happened the same day Speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced his retirement, but former House Speaker John Boehner has announced that he's joining the board of Acreage Holdings, an investment company concentrating on the marijuana industry. In doing so, he added that his own position on legal marijuana had changed as public opinion had come around on the subject. And Boehner is far from the only previously anti-pot politician to turn into an advocate.

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 07:00:00 GMT

Toronto Star, 14 Apr 2018 - MONTREAL-In the rush to marijuana legalization, cities across the country are harnessing their limited powers to delay the opening of retail pot stores, dictate where they can operate or ban them outright-at least temporarily.

Canada: Cannabis Debate: Not Enough Is Being Planned To Protect Youth

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 07:00:00 GMT

Toronto Star, 16 Apr 2018 - Canada is moving closer to the legalization of recreational Cannabis this summer. Federal legislation is awaiting Senate approval and all the provinces have developed their implementation approach. Governments across the country rarely agree on anything. But as we embark on this change, they have been unanimous in agreeing that their top policy objective is the protection of youth. We know what the approaches and commitments have been from various governments, so we are in a good position to know whether their actions reflect their words. So far, the simple answer is no.
