Justin Trudeau Legalizing Marijuana

It’s been 100 years. 100 years of prohibition on Marijuana. A Prohibition in which no one knows or understands why it was prohibited in the first place. A plant that has done wonders for medical patients suffering from pain, anxiety, parkinsons, insomnia, stress, upset stomach etc. Why Prohibit something that has always done good?

As soon as Justin Trudeau came into office he had said that he was going to follow the USA and start the process of legalizing Marijuana. We are 1 year and 15 days away from history. We are 1 year and 15 days away from the legalization of Marijuana!

Justin Trudeau To Legalize Weed in Canada

But before American youngsters crash  Canada’s immigration website again, Trudeau warned the drug is still illegal until the legislation passes. “Until we have a framework to control and regulate marijuana, the current laws apply,” he said earlier this month. And legalization will have strict federal guidelines.

The federal government will oversee the supply and license producers, but provinces will regulate the drug’s distribution, sale, and prices. There will also be a limit of four plants per household. The national age for buying marijuana will be 18, but provinces can boost the age limit as they see fit.

But law enforcement groups voiced concerns about legalization. The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police released a response in February outlining “concerns with regards to impaired driving and impact on organized crime.” It added “public education is critical and should begin immediately” as the government paves the way for legalization.

Trudeau’s push for legalization caught political flak from other parties, even parties on the left who fear it could turn into another one of Trudeau’s broken promises. “I do not believe Justin Trudeau is going to bring in the legalization of marijuana and as proof that … we are still seeing, particularly young Canadians being criminalized by simple possession of marijuana,” said British Columbia MP Peter Julian of the left-leaning New Democratic Party.

Smoking Marijuana and Playing Sports. Does it help?

Often the question comes up. Can Marijuana enhance your level of play on the court, field, ice etc. The answer is really up to you. How is your mind going to handle Cannabis in the brain and soul when you’re playing at fast pace and trying to think about your next play.

When I was 19 I was a pretty good soccer player. Don’t mean to brag but I was pretty damn good. Never in all my years of playing at that time did I think I was smoke a joint or get high before a game. Until one day when I was at home and I was about to leave for my game. I found a joint I had in my car and just lit it up. It was a really nice strain. Cannot remember what it was. Anyways I got to the game 15 mins before the start. I warmed up on the field and realized that I was baked out of my trees!

The whistle blew and the game was under way. Now at first everything was a little overwhelming but after 5 minutes I adjusted to it. I then got confident and asked for the ball. I was thinking about plays 2 steps before and it made me a threat. I was conducting passes and doing things ive never even thought of. I guess that confidence was there and I had an attitude like I didn’t care what anyone was going to think and if I failed then who cares. I played a fantastic game, one of my best ever.

I guess if you smoke it and then get all paranoid or start to think about the worst case scenario then it might not be great for you. Its all how you let the drug take over. However I will say I did do it before a few more games and the same effect was not there. So I haven’t done it since. I did however do it a couple years ago and it was not a great idea. I was slow and confused and not in the best state of mind.

For some, that creativity will stay with them. There has been rumours that NBA basketball players have been known to do it and that they were creative once smoking weed before the game.

I think maybe a sativa would help. Giving you more energy and helping you be more creative would help while your in a game. However I also think that when your younger it is easier to smoke and still have all that energy to play a full game without coughing your lungs out.

Ricky Williams was a running back for the Miami Dolphins who openly smoked weed and eventually was unable to play in the NFL. The National Football Association is very strict with there laws on drugs with the players.

If it helps you and continues to help you then by all means go on and smoke up and play your heart out. If you notice your game is going downhill and you look like me trying to solve a word puzzel in the newspaper then i would stop.

Employees At A Dispensary Join Union

Workers at a medical marijuana dispensary in Toronto’s east end have joined Unifor, the country’s largest private-sector union.

Forty workers at a local dispensary in Toronto have joined unifor. Reception, production workers, supervisors etc. are now represented by a union.

Marijuana dispensaries are illegal still in Canada and the only way to purchase legal marijuana is by getting it from a licensed health producer and they ship it Via Mail.

Unifor president Jerry Dias said all workers have a right to unionize, regardless of an industry’s status.

“This is a fast-growing industry, and with the advent of legalization, it is important that the workers have a voice and representation as the sector evolves over the coming years,” Dias said in a news release.

This is local dispensary has 4 other locations and Unifor is hoping the other locations will join the union as well.

Unifor says the union will begin to negotiate a first contract at the east-end dispensary.

Unifor organizing director John Aman said the workers cited safety and training as their primary concerns.

This is only the beginning, Marijuana is becoming legal and the companies will start coming. Of course there are unions that will be formed.

I always see Marijuana as becoming the new Alcohol. Think about it, alcohol was prohibited for a long time and then when it became legal big time manufacturers came along like Molson, Budweiser etc. and took over the beer industry. Will the same happen with Marijuana? I would think so.
