When Justin Trudeau promised to legalize the use of recreational marijuana, he no doubt felt it would be one of his easiest and most rewarding tasks as Canada’s new and uber-cool prime minister. He vowed to make it a priority and change the laws within two years.
Fast-forward to last month, almost 2 1/2 years later, and Bill C-45, to legalize cannabis, faced an unexpected pushback from a Senate that threatened to send it packing. Trudeau took this chance to warn his supposedly independent senators that their job description didn’t call for them to defeat bills proposed by the very government that had bestowed upon them their most honourable appointments. -The Vancouver Sun
Again!! Trudeau continues to shock and awe us with the depths of his stupidity. Let’s legalize ALL drugs. Like that’s going to kill the black market which doesn’t charge its customers taxes. Nope! Just going to kill more young people of European descent. https://t.co/3myBnXp68J

Really can’t wait for Canada to legalize marijuana man. I don’t even smoke anymore but I need CBD oil to go mainstream and become affordable. Because that shit was amazing for my knee pain and back aches.

It will be ok folks. It won’t be illegal in the US for much longer. We are just a little behind the times, give us some time Canada. We will all blaze together on both sides of the border soon.

Any Haitians crossing into Canada from the US are probably from the group granted temporary residence after their earthquake and are now being mandated to leave or legalize.https://t.co/oxXHmNxXzK

A Canadian food production company has chosen Litchfield, Que., as its site for a major cannabis research, innovation and production centre — one that could bring 500 jobs to the small Pontiac town.
LiveWell Canada is transforming a former pulp and paper mill in the community west of Shawville into a nearly 600,000 square-foot facility, one that could potentially begin operations in 2019.
“What we found, with the Pontiac, was an area that needed economic development, that needed support. And I think it was a beautiful connection,” said David Rendimonti, the company’s president.-CBC
Unexpectedly, this doesn’t frighten Murie — whose group has led the campaign against impaired driving for decades — nearly as much as the countervailing testing bill thrills him.
That bill will allow police forces to purchase and deploy oral fluid testers — so-called spit kits — that will accompany the familiar alcohol breathalyzer machines in tens of thousands of cruisers across the country.
Even for those who may not be impaired, Mann points out that driving is a privilege, not a right. And, he says, if people are going to drive on public roads, they must accept doing so under government-set THC limits that would leave many, or most, unable to drive safely.-The Star
