      Canada becomes second country to legalise cannabis use

      Canada is to become the second country in the world to fully legalise marijuana, after the senate approved legislation paving the way for recreational cannabis to be legally bought and sold within the next two or three months.

      “We’ve just witnessed a very historic vote that ends 90 years of prohibition,” senator Tony Dean told reporters on Tuesday after the vote to pass the Cannabis Act.

      “It ends 90 years of needless criminalisation, it ends a prohibition model that inhibited and discouraged public health and community health in favour of just-say-no approaches that simply failed young people miserably.”

      The federal government has said it would give provinces and territories – which are responsible for deciding how recreational cannabis will be distributed and sold – eight to 12 weeks after the legislation is passed to get ready for sales, but the exact date that sales begin will be set by the federal government.

      Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government introduced the legislation last year in a bid to make Canada the second country in the world to legalise cannabis, after Uruguay. Medical marijuana is already legal in Canada.

      On Tuesday, the prime minister welcomed the legislation being passed. “It’s been too easy for our kids to get marijuana - and for criminals to reap the profits,” he wrote on Twitter. “Today, we change that.”

      Initially, the government planned to begin retail sales by 1 July, but the timeline was delayed as the senate debated the legislation. Canada’s upper chamber voted 52 to 29 on Tuesday to make marijuana fully legal in the country.

      Some Conservative MPs and senators voiced their disappointment as the bill passed on Tuesday. “Sad day for Canada’s kids,” senator Linda Frum wrote on Twitter.

      Conservative senator Leo Housakos said: “When you normalise the use of marijuana and you’re a young person and you had certain reservations because of the simple fact that it was illegal, there’s, I believe, a propensity to have somebody be more inclined to use it.”

      Once legalisation goes into effect, Canadians will be able grow up to four plants in their own home and carry up to 30 grams of dried cannabis for personal use. Those caught with more than this amount, or who supply marijuana to minors will face penalties.

      Sales of cannabis – which analysts estimate could eventually be worth somewhere between C$5bn and C$7bn annually – will vary widely across the country. In Alberta, recreational cannabis will be available at more than 200 private retailers while in New Brunswick, the provincial government will operate a chain of stores called Cannabis NB.

      The minimum age of consumption will fluctuate between 18 or 19 years depending on the province.

      On Tuesday, supporters of the legislation stressed the cautious, prudent approach to the landmark change. “What the government’s approach has been is, yes, legalisation but also strict control,” said Peter Harder, the government’s representative in the Senate. “That does not in any way suggest that it’s now party time.”

      The historic vote comes with its own set of challenges for the government; it has promised it will now explore the idea of clearing the criminal records of the hundreds of thousands of Canadians with past convictions for simple possession and will have to address the concerns of some Indigenous leaders who said they weren’t adequately consulted on the legislation.

      Canada’s softer approach to cannabis could also exacerbate the country’s already turbulent relationship with Donald Trump’s administration. While nine US states and the District of Columbia have legalised recreational marijuana, the White House has previously suggested that the Department of Justice will do more to enforce federal laws prohibiting recreational marijuana, raising concerns over how Canada’s approach will coexist with a potential US crackdown.

      Nearly 400,000 people a day cross the border between Canada and the US. Since 2016, Canada has been pushing the US to change a policy that bans Canadians who admit to having used marijuana from travelling to the United States.

        The Federal government just needs to let the states decide whether they want to legalize it or not. Just stay out of it.
        No! You can't have the keys to the wine cellar!

                World’s First Cannabis Beer Launches Across California



                World’s First Cannabis Beer Launches Across California
                February 7, 2019
                By Taylor Rock Editor

                The world’s first-ever cannabis-infused non-alcoholic beer is expanding from Nevada to California. “Cannabier” — made by Two Roots Brewing — will soon be offered in both THC-infused and full-spectrum CBD-infused varieties and will be available for purchase at select dispensaries in markets including San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

                Five different flavors currently exist, including the Enough Said Lager, RCG Stout, Road Scholar IPA, “Sonder” Blonde Ale and Tropical Infamy Wheat Beer. The move is an attempt to help normalize cannabis-infused products while giving people a more sociable outlet to consume them. Might as well crack a cold one and drink with the squad instead of smoking everyone out with a smelly joint or gummies and brownies that go down in 10 seconds.

                Hangover, who? You won’t get the negative effects of alcohol with Cannabier, the company behind Two Roots Brewing (somewhat confusingly called Cannabiniers) says. It’s a micro-dosed beverage that mimics the rapid onset of alcohol with a quick dissipation from the body, so you don’t have to freak out about an uncomfortable all-day high. There are electrolytes in the recipe too, which help hydrate you, regulate nerve and muscle function, balance blood acidity and pressure, and rebuild damaged tissue. So it’s more like a fizzy weed Gatorade than a beer, right?

                “We've seen a tremendously positive response to Two Roots Brewing since its initial debut in Nevada,” Cannabiniers president and chief operating officer Timothy Walters said in a release. “As more states legalize recreational cannabis, users will continue to seek new, more sociable ways to consume, and companies will increasingly look to adapt to this new wave of consumption. We are thrilled to bring Two Roots to residents throughout California, offering a more enjoyable and socially integrated way to consume cannabis.”

                People are using legal cannabis now more than ever. Last year, the legal marijuana industry topped $10 billion in consumer spending, and with more states looking to legalize, that number is expected to continue to grow. Right now, marijuana is lawful in Washington, Washington D.C., Oregon, California, Nevada, Colorado, Hawaii, Michigan, Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine.

                  In more recent events, New York is decriminalizing pot, Hawaii already did decriminalize pot, and Illinois is the first state to totally legalize pot through legislative action, with the law set to go into effect January 1, 2020.

                  That is all.

                    Kosher Weed, Delivered by Drone??

                    Jerusalem Post Israel News
                    Drone drops hundreds of bags of cannabis in Tel Aviv
                    The bags were dropped by the "green drone" Telegram group, which advocates for the legalization of cannabis in Israel, with "free love" being the group's slogan.

                    A drone dropped hundreds of bags of cannabis on Thursday afternoon over Rabin Square in Tel Aviv, attracting dozens of confused people, who rushed to pick up as many bags as they could carry.

                    The bags of cannabis were dropped by the "green drone" Telegram group, which advocates for the legalization of cannabis in Israel, with "free love" being the group's slogan.
                    Before dropping the cannabis over Tel Aviv, the group published a message on Telegram, hinting at the planned operation.
                    "It's time my dear brothers. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's the green drone, handing out free cannabis from the sky... Enjoy my beloved brothers, this is your pilot brother, making sure we all get some free love," the message read.

                    The message also indicated that the operation was part of the group's celebratory launching of a new delivery system titled "rain of cannabis."
                    "We're launching the 'rain of cannabis' project, that will include a weekly delivery to different parts of the country of 1 kilo of cannabis divided into free 2 gram bags," the message stated.
                    The masterminds behind the operation also addressed the imminent threat of a lockdown imposed by the government in an attempt to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, explaining that the situation "requires thinking outside the box and coming up with new ways of getting cannabis to consumers" – which they said is what gave birth to the project in the first place.


                    The police announced shortly after the incident that it had arrested two suspects in their 30s, who allegedly operated the drone that flew over Rabin Square which scattered the bags of cannabis.
                    According to police, the distribution of a substance suspected to be dangerous is illegal. The suspects who were arrested will be interrogated and dealt with accordingly.

                          It's amazing how constipated politicians can get over all the incessant strategizing.

                                He missed the party, but he can say he smoked pot with Willie Nelson. If that means something for ya.
