CN NS: Column: Stirring The Pot On Legal Weed

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Metro, 19 Sep 2017 - We need to figure out how to sell weed in Nova Scotia - we also need to get more stores to sell healthy food. Maybe we can use one problem to solve the other: allow stores to sell weed if they also offer a minimum quantity and quality of fruit and vegetables.

CN NS: PUB LTE: Signs Of Omission

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

The Coast, 14 Sep 2017 - I don't really know where to go with this other than The Coast, since you appreciate input from us random faces in the crowds, and it shows. I recently stumbled across this article on the Metro chain's Halifax website: "Woman high on weed in wreck that killed grandkids." That is terrifying news as our country is striving to make marijuana legal, so I clicked and read briefly into the article-only to realize it was a poor copy-paste job from an Associated Press story that omitted half the information. After just three minutes of digging I found the original article, in which they list the OTHER 19 CHARGES this woman is facing, including driving under the influence. They found over 40 pills of oxycodone, and there were opened liquor containers in her car and smashed on the road. I am not trying to say that marijuana wasn't a factor, it just was not the only factor. But where, I ask, is that mentioned in the Metro article?

CN NS: Opposition: Nova Scotia Government Dragging Heels

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Truro Daily News, 11 Sep 2017 - With the release of Ontario's marijuana legalization framework on Friday, Nova Scotia's opposition is concerned the provincial government is dragging its heels. The first province to have constructed a comprehensive legalization plan, Ontario's framework includes plans to open 150 standalone stores, and to have the province's liquor control board oversee all recreational pot sales.

CN NS: Column: N.S. Government Still In Legal Pot Haze

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Truro Daily News, 11 Sep 2017 - There are concerns Nova Scotia isn't moving fast enough to deal with new standards regulating the legal sale of marijuana, and it could mean other provinces get a leg up. Nova Scotia's plans to get into the pot business are eerily reminiscent of a late-20th century, would-be-pusher - distinguished by stealth and uncertainty. No one knows what, if anything, the province has done to prepare for July 2018, when cannabis is legal in Canada, and the province's vague statements are neither illuminating nor reassuring. That's in sharp contrast to New Brunswick, where preparations are public and well-advanced. Nova Scotia is behind Newfoundland too, where public consultations are complete and a report has been produced, and Prince Edward Island, which is conducting consultations now.
