CN AB: LTE: Why The Rush To Legalize Marijuana?

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Medicine Hat News, 21 Nov 2017 - Why is the federal government in such a hurry to pass its marijuana legalization legislation when there are still so many questions and so few answers? Just last week, the Alberta Association of Chiefs of Police said that the legislation is coming too fast, stating that, "There is insufficient time to prepare the necessary legislative framework and regulations to ensure the public safety." The Canadian Association of Police Chiefs warned that it will be "impossible" to be ready for the government's target of legalizing marijuana by July 2018. Do these things not matter?

Calgary Herald, 20 Nov 2017 - Why is the federal government in such a hurry to pass its marijuana legalization when there are still so many questions and so few answers? Just this week, the Alberta Association of Chiefs of Police said the legislation is coming too fast, stating, "There is insufficient time to prepare the necessary legislative framework and regulations to ensure the public safety."



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 AB: High Hopes

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Calgary Sun, 17 Nov 2017 - Alberta won't limit the number of private cannabis stores once retail sales are legalized next July, according to new details released Thursday by the NDP government. The province confirmed that it will look to private retailers to sell legal weed from brick-and-mortar storefronts, instead of government-run outlets chosen by several other provinces, such as Ontario and Quebec.



CN AB: PUB LTE: Where's The Buzz?

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Edmonton Sun, 18 Nov 2017 - On the street, a dealer selling pot at $10 per gram better deliver the goods - high THC content sufficient to get a good buzz - or clientele will go elsewhere. Word gets around fast. Similarly, if the provincial government doesn't deliver the goods, plans to reap millions in taxes from selling pot will go up in smoke. The government hasn't said a word about the THC content in its pot and journalists have been remiss in not asking this, the most important question. If the THC content is the same as or close to the content found in medical marijuana, there most certainly will not be a buzz. And that's the main reason for smoking a joint. Neighbourhood dealers may have nothing to fear.



CN AB: Column: Alberta Pot Rules Largely Workable

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Calgary Sun, 18 Nov 2017 - The Alberta government's proposed rules for selling legal marijuana are a bit fuddy-duddy. For the most part, they're pretty good. Private retailers will handle in-person sales; unionized government workers will be in charge of online purchases. (Please allow six to eight weeks for delivery).



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 AB: Column: Uptight Not All Right

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Edmonton Sun, 17 Nov 2017 - Pot rules largely workable but ban on weed sales at liquor stores makes no sense The Alberta government's proposed rules for selling legal marijuana are a bit fuddy-duddy. For the most part, they're pretty good. Private retailers will handle in-person sales; unionized government workers will be in charge of online purchases. (Please allow 6 to 8 weeks for delivery).
