CN BC: Column: Smoking Pot Hard On Health

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Prince George Citizen, 21 Nov 2017 - On a flight home last week, I was having a conversation about the introduction of Bill C-45 or the "Cannabis Act." The person I was talking to is working with local governments to sort out the multitude of bylaws and regulations which will be necessitated by the legislation. Different municipalities are taking varying approaches and have disparate points of view on the whole issue. After all, not everyone is in favour of legalizing marijuana nor sure what exactly that means.



Canada: OPED: Cannabis Is Canada's Moment To Lead

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Globe and Mail, 18 Nov 2017 - Sometimes it takes someone from outside Canada to make us realize what a great thing we have going. A few years ago, a Brazilian investment firm, 3G Capital, bought Canadian coffee icon Tim Hortons. In 1995, Labatt Brewery was swallowed up by Interbrew from Belgium, which was in turn merged with AmBev, also from Brazil. Richard Baker, an American, saw the potential in Hudson's Bay Co., which was struggling at the time, and paid more than $1.1-billion in 2008 for the 80 per cent of the chain that he didn't own (although his stake has since been reduced). While much has been written about the varying degrees of success each of these deals has had, one thing is clear: The buyers saw Canada and Canadian companies as worth investing in.



CN AB: Editorial: Alberta Pot Rules Reasonable, If Uptight

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Calgary Sun, 19 Nov 2017 - The rules governing legal marijuana sales in Alberta, released by the NDP government on Thursday, are a bit uptight. Really!? Licensed pot dispensaries won't be able to sell customers tortilla chips at the same time they sell them a 4g bag of Purple Kush or Grape Ape or Bubba Rockstar? Do the NDP truly believe that consumption of Doritos leads to overdosing on weed use rather than the other way around?



CN SN: A Little Pot On The Prairies

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Moose Jaw Times-Herald, 18 Nov 2017 - Saskatchewan Government looking to privatize marijuana Saskatchewan's government is not interested in operating pot shops. Instead, they want to concentrate on regulating the product.



Canada: Clearing The Air On Cannabis

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Winnipeg Free Press, 18 Nov 2017 - THE flurry of news articles on the upcoming legalization of cannabis is everywhere, and seems to be creating substantial fear among most employers. Much of this fear, of course, is about having to deal with the unknown. For instance, will recreational cannabis use increase among employees and how will this impact the workplace? What about medical marijuana? Are employers ready for this new challenge? Will current policies stand the test against cannabis?



CN AB: Editorial: Govern Your Own Pot Behaviour

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Calgary Sun, 17 Nov 2017 - Be smart. Not stupid. As we travel down the road to pot legalization in Canada, provincial governments across the country are scrambling to update a number of laws, including impaired driving rules.



CN QU: Quebec To Keep Strict Controls Over Marijuana

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Toronto Star, 17 Nov 2017 - Provincial legislation calls for government-run stores, zero tolerance for DUIs MONTREAL- The rollout of legislation governing the legal marijuana regime in Quebec was likely a downer for pot enthusiasts in a province widely known for its European sensibilities and liberal mores.



Canada: Editorial: Legal, But Not If You're At The Wheel

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Globe and Mail, 15 Nov 2017 - The busywork of readying the country for legalized cannabis continues apace, and Ottawa has gotten around to mapping out the murky territory that is stoned driving. Proposed legislative changes would create a two-tiered approach to setting the maximum amount of THC, cannabis's main psychoactive element, allowable in drivers' blood. Motorists measured with two to five nanograms of THC per millilitre of blood within two hours of being stopped would be subjected to a fine; those above would be treated criminally, mirroring the way many provinces deal with alcohol and driving.
