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 SN: LTE: Rogue Nations Need Not Apply

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The StarPhoenix, 18 Nov 2017 - In 2016, the world drug prevention community met at UNGASS in New York to reconfirm their commitment and ratification of the long-standing drug conventions. I was in the General Assembly when the minister of health for the Government of Canada stood to announce Canada's plan to introduce legislation to legalize marijuana in the spring of 2017. I can report that the world was less than pleased. Canada's move to legalization will take our country offside of these global agreements and out of step with our international partners.



CN ON: Ontario Late On Warning Teens About Marijuana

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 08:00:00 GMT

Toronto Star, 18 Nov 2017 - With legalization looming, doctors say province not ready to handle risks Ontario is slow to launch a public education campaign warning parents about the dangers of marijuana to children, which include the risk associated with second-hand pot smoke, the Pediatricians Alliance of Ontario warned Friday.



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 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.



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).



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 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).
