Cannabis legalization in Canada.
Well, it is Friday afternoon, and I have closed the office for the weekend. I have also just picked up my first legal purchase of marijuana from the post office. We had Cannabis become legal for recreational purposes on October 17. The government of my province is selling direct until bricks and mortar stores open on April 1. Some highlights: It's taxed. We use "sin" taxes to pay for hospitals and schools. Even with the tax, it worked out about $30 less per ounce than the stuff I was buying at the quasi-legal dispensaries. Best is that there is an analysis of what you have purchased, percentages of THC and CBD. (One of my clients and a dear friend developed Parkinsons Disease in the last two years. He did not react well to the medications prescribed. They had little to no effect. We visited the dispensary that I frequented, and he purchased a quarter ounce of a CBD strain. Two deep puffs and his voice returned. Four more, and he did not have a tremor. CBD strains will not get you high, but it made his wife break down in tears, like the disease was wiped away.-he bought a pocket vaporizer, and he takes a few puffs every few hours. He stopped the meds altogether)
Plus, our government is apparently expunging the records of those convicted of simple possession. Happy to say, I am Canadian.
