CN ON: LTE: Ad Campaign Won't Work

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 08:00:00 GMT

The Expositor, 10 Jan 2018 - Ahead of its July deadline for legalizing recreational marijuana use in Canada, the federal government has launched a ad campaign warning of the risks of drug-impaired driving. I wonder if any elected official has noticed ads warning against drinking and driving have not eliminated drunk driving. The new ads won't work either.

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 08:00:00 GMT

The Daily Courier, 11 Jan 2018 - Dear editor: This is a response to Gord Marshall's wherein he states "Pot smokers will hurt the water system" (Daily Courier, Jan. 9). Mr. Marshall, your statement may or may not be true.

There is very little waste.

Prince George Citizen, 11 Jan 2018 - Marijuana, cannabis, pot, whatever you want to call it, it will become legal in Canada sometime this year following the U.S. where pot is legal in several states. I do not smoke pot or anything else. Two glasses of wine and I am asleep. I do get high though watching the Patriots and the Red Sox win. I am also asthmatic and any kind of smoke bothers me. There is a lot of kerfuffle going on and this is my take on this hot topic.
