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. The way to curb drug-impaired driving is to not make cannabis legal for recreational purposes. Cannabis should only be marketed for seriously ill people on a doctor's prescription. Marie Braund

CN ON: Column: City marijuana store: Proceed With Caution

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 08:00:00 GMT

The Peterborough Examiner, 11 Jan 2018 - Last month, the government of Ontario passed the Cannabis Act. It gives the province a monopoly on the sale of recreational marijuana through an estimated 150 stand alone stores to be run by the new Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporation. While the new law piggybacks on the federal decision to legalize recreational marijuana this summer, as well as a new federal-provincial revenue sharing agreement that will give the provinces and territories 75 per cent of federal marijuana revues, it has not been without controversy. In the Ontario Legislature, 27 Progressive Conservatives opposed the law, citing concerns from police associations that more financial support is required for law enforcement. While the NDP supported the law, some of its MPPs expressed concerns about the uncertainty of revenues to be provided to municipalities, as well as the small number of store fronts (40) to be opened this summer, which they see as inadequate to put a dent in the existing black market.
