Canada’s Recreational Bill And Stocks Could Be In Trouble

there’s quite a bit of opposition to Canada’s recreational marijuana legalization efforts, and it could wind up pushing Trudeau’s legislation off the table altogether.

Though Canada’s current government make-up could reasonably be described as “progressive,” conservative members of Parliament could make legalization far more challenging than people and investors realize.

Another primary issue involves how impairment for drivers behind the wheel will be measured. Though there are a handful of companies developing breathalyzer tests that can detect levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of cannabis, in drivers, there are no baselines to describe what would be considered an unacceptable level of impairment. For instance, a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher in the U.S. is considered impaired for a driver. There aren’t any guidelines for marijuana use, which makes resolving the concerns of lawmakers exceptionally challenging.

If Canada is unable to get its recreational weed bill passed into law, Canadian marijuana stocks, which have risen considerably in anticipation of an expected legalization, could quickly lose the wind from their sails. The four, in particular, that are at greatest risk of having their valuations take a hit are Canopy Growth Corp. Aphria, Aurora Cannabis and MedReleaf.

Health Canada also announced changes to its medical cannabis program in May that could have negative implications for the four Canadian marijuana stocks listed above. Health Canada plans to issue additional growing licenses, as well as allow existing producers to pack their vaults with supply, assuming it can be done safely and securely. In other words, it sounds as if extra competition and supply are on the verge of flooding the Canadian market. That’s not good news for any of these four companies.

Long story short, Canadian marijuana stock investors may soon wind up sorely disappointed.

Toronto Police Raid Canna Clinic Marijuana Dispensaries

Police have conducted raids on at least two marijuana dispensaries operated in Toronto by Canna Clinics. The raids happened mid-morning at the B.C.-based company’s stores on Queen St. W. and Kensington Ave.

Canna Clinics has seven locations in Toronto. Toronto police did not immediately confirm how many of the company’s dispensaries had been raided.

A bar owner near the Kensington clinic said police came around 10 a.m. Customers were let go before police closed the store.

Officers at the scene said they were going to arrest the staff members and seize all illegal drugs. A number of people who appeared to be employees were seen leaving the store around midday. One was crying, and others looked defeated and resigned.

At the Queen St. W. store, Det. Darren Worth said nine employees were detained. Worth said all of them had been arrested, and that police would seize “all the illegal drugs” and the proceeds from sales. Customers continued to arrive at the store while the raid was underway, but were turned away by police.

A man who was working there when police arrived said the officers seized all the staff members’ phones, and didn’t return them when the workers were released.

“I think it’s a big waste of time and money,” said the employee, who would only identify himself as Derek. Staff members leaving the Queen St. store said they expected it would be open again by tomorrow.

“We do know we take a risk by working here,” said Laura Glatt, who has been working at the clinic for about a month. “Me personally, I’m all for the risk because I believe in the medicinal aspect of it.”

Glatt said she understands the police officers are just doing their job, but thinks Prime Minister Justin Trudeau needs a better strategy as Canada moves toward legalization of marijuana. “All that’s happening right now is people are getting hurt.”

Personally she uses marijuana for depression, sleeping disorder and eating disorder. She said it will be “maybe a couple of days” before the store reopens.

“I just think it’s sort of ridiculous, a waste of resources.”

Mexico Legalizes Medical Marijuana

The President, Enrique Pena Nieto, has officially published a bill allowing its use for health and scientific purposes. The bill was passed in April, with an overwhelming 371 members of the Lower House of Congress voting in favour, with only 19 politicians voting against or abstaining. It also received popular support from the Mexican Senate in December, with 98 senators voting to pass the bill and seven voting against.

It also establishes that industrial products with concentrations of one percent THC or less would be legal to buy, sell, import and export.Recreational use of marijuana remains broadly prohibited in Mexico. But President Nieto – once staunchly anti-drugs – has called for a global rethink towards narcotics. He said they should be viewed through a public health lens which doesn’t criminalise users.

Peña Nieto’s decree effectively eliminates the criminalization of the medicinal use of cannabis, THC, CBD, and all cannabis derivatives, as well as legalizing the production and distribution of cannabis for medicinal and therapeutic uses.

“The ruling eliminates the prohibition and criminalization of acts related to the medicinal use of marijuana and its scientific research, and those relating to the production and distribution of the plant for these purposes,” stated the Lower House of Parliament, known as La Cámara de Diputados.

This week, the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) held their Cannabis Business Summit and Expo in Oakland, California, welcoming over 75 speakers from all aspects of America’s fastest growing industry. Of all the distinguished guests at the fourth annual conference, the most notable was surely Former Mexican President Vicente Fox, who was honored as the keynote speaker.

Fox’s keynote address touched on the need for an open global trade market for cannabis to allow the industry to reach its full potential, also demonstrating how the legalization of adult-use cannabis in his home country could end the intense violence caused by the cartels and illegal markets.

But it was the former President of Mexico’s comments during a separate press conference at the NCIA event that had the ears of reporters perking up.

On President Trump, Fox accused the administration of being “so crazy and so ignorant about what is going on in the world” and called the President himself “a disruptor” and “destroyer” of social progress globally. “The world is moving, and it’s moving in the right direction,” added Fox. “If anything, we don’t need America to be great — we need a great world.”

Fox told reporters that Trump is “blind” and his “white, middle-class male” supporters shouldn’t be interpreting his perspective as their own world view. Fox added that Trump should not be imposing his will on the American people through executive orders.

 

Cannabis Church Now Open

Have you ever thought about going to Church to worship your favorite drug? Yeah me neither. Now in Denver, Colorado a group of individuals have re opened an old church to make way for the future of cannabis. The state of Colorado, which has now made weed legal, is growing in the cannabis world.

They call it Elevationism. The basic principle is that using cannabis allows worshippers to achieve the best version of themselves. I like the sound of that if I do say so myself.

The church came first and the religion came second. Steve Berke, one of the founders, got help from his parents to purchase the historic building, which cost over $1 million.

At first they weren’t sure what to do with it. They thought about turning it into condominiums, or a mansion for a Denver Broncos player, before they finally settled on using the church as it was intended — well, sort of.

YES! The answer to the question everyone is thinking when reading this article. Yes, you can smoke weed, however its done in a different room where the daily mass is held place. The church is just like a regular church where you can come to pray or meditate and all that. The Church is open to the public between Monday-Friday 12-3pm. On the weekends it is only open to private members.

The church hasn’t arrived in Denver without controversy. The day it opened, Dan Pabon, a Democrat in the state’s House of Representatives, tried to add an amendment banning cannabis consumption in churches to a bill. But some of Pabon’s fellow representatives argued that the amendment would be an unconstitutional restriction on religion, and it was scuttled, The Denver Post reported.

It’s irrelevant to me what other people think about this. We’re doing what we’re doing. It’s for real, It’s a very serious undertaking. In time, it’ll prove itself.” Said the head organizer of the Church.

100 Years of Prohibition….why?

It’s been 94 years exactly that marijuana has been illegal. Almost a century has gone by and till this day no one knows why it was pronounced illegal. A professor of the history department at the University of Guelph said there is 2 common theories that people have explained in old books or films.

Carstairs believes marijuana was made illegal by government bureaucrats without much thought, who felt the drug was coming under increasing international scrutiny as a drug that one day need to be regulated.

By 1922 a number of U.S. states had already introduced legislation against the drug and I think Canada was sort of following international guidelines and added marijuana to the schedule of restricted drugs without a great deal of debate.

There is no record of it ever being discussed in parliament, I think the only reason it was  added to the illegal list is because it was being discussed at international meetings with world leaders.

Carstairs adds that while federal law makers barely knew about the existence of pot, it wasn’t something the average Canadian knew much about either. There was almost no marijuana use in Canada at the time. It boggles the mind that they made it illegal.

Canada, which is a huge surprise, was one of the first countries in the world to ban the flower. The law was not really forced in the first 10 years or so. However in the late 1930s is when police really cracked down on cannabis use. It was the USA that put Canada under pressure to start forcing the law. RCMP fanned out across the nation to stop cannabis use.

At the time, hemp was a common sight on farms across the country, where it often grew wild and was often used by farmers not as a drug, but as a windbreak to protect crops and prevent soil erosion.

Now here we are, nearly 100 years later, and marijuana is still illegal but they’re not as harsh as they once were. The federal government is now wanting to legalize it. Will they do it? Only time will tell. However, this marijuana smoker believes cannabis is the best plant god created and the fact that something so herbal and natural is banned is ridiculous. Tell me what you think.

67 pounds of Weed found in Coffin

You read the heading correctly. When I first read this article I could not believe what I read. This guy near a city named Tombstone was stopped by Willcox Border Patrol. Driving a bright white hearse the man could not get his story right. I guess he was mixing up his words or maybe stuttered. So the customs agents decided to pull him to the side. Little did they realize they would find 67 pounds of weed in coffin.

The name of the man who dared to take $38,000 worth of weed across a border was not released. The arrest was made but they haven’t released any information what his punishment would be.

Which brings me to the point of why buying marijuana online is very important. If someone driving a hearse can get questioned and pulled over doesn’t that scare the shit out of you? It did for me!

Ordering marijuana online in Canada is very simple. Now you can just log on to buy weed online and be able to place an order as if you were buying clothes.

Buying products such as Marijuana, Hash, Shatter, Dabs etc. Anything is available on the net you just always need to make sure that the source is trust worthy.

Do your due diligence, do some research make sure that the company seems legit. Make sure they have a contact phone number and contact the Customer Service Department. If they don’t have one I would personally never buy from them.

Going back to the story of this guy. He had 67 pounds of weed stored in 2 different coffins and all in the back. It wasn’t even hidden it was just packed in the back. I guess he thought they wouldn’t even question him because he was in a hearse.

Buy Weed Online is the way of the future for Marijuana.

Buy Weed Online

Yes, you read the article heading correctly. Buy Weed Online is the newest way to purchase marijuana. Not only that but its the safest and most reliable way to buying marijuana. I use to always have to meet this sketchy dealer in a parking lot or some other shady place. It never felt safe, I never knew if my dealer was coming or a huge swat team raiding my car. It was a scary and uneasy feeling every time I wanted to buy weed. I buy weed to relax and calm my nerves, not to do the other way around.

With the uncertainty of the legalization of weed, pot smokers are getting more and more impatient as to abiding by the law. Why should they? They have been told over and over again that Weed will be legal.

Marijuana smokers are now turning to the Internet to purchase marijuana. You can now buy weed online and have it delivered right to your front door. Imagine that, order from your laptop on your couch while your watching sports highlights and have it delivered right to you. Guaranteed!

A lot of people purchase from a marijuana dispensary. Something I haven’t done before. Why would I want too? Being on there Camera records forever, never know if the police are going to raid the place etc. It’s a scary thought to think that you may get seen or have records of you purchasing marijuana while it’s legal.

While we sit here and wait for our government to twiddle there thumbs and wait for something that may never happen, I am giving cannabis smokers a different alternative. Allowing smokers to purchase marijuana from there own homes and have it delivered right to there front door. It’s not rocket science, everyone has access to internet in some way. Being able to order cannabis online and pay with Debit or Credit Card is the way of the future.
