Canadian Cannabis Business Conference

We can’t help but feel the cannabis act is more decriminalization then legalization. Also of much concern is the criminal penalties and restrictions are much more harsher for cannabis then alcohol, tobacco and even many violent crimes.

Note: The impaired driving likely won’t hold up to constitutional challenges in the courts. calgary420.ca/pdf/driving/driving-impaired.pdf

Growing restricted to 4 plants per home and 1 meter height max. Tobacco cultivation limit is 15kg per year for each adult person living at the residence.
Note: Easy enough to control height with plant training.

Re: Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi brain science comment:

The long term real world schizophrenia data from the nineteen sixties (1960s) to twenty sixteen (2016) shows no sufficient increases even thought cannabis consumption has sufficiently increased over the same time period (over 50 years).

The Green Screen

By |

This Sunday, February 26, UK drug policy innovation hub VolteFace is coming to Toronto to unveil their new paper, “The Green Screen.” Presented by Mike Power, an award-winning British investigative journalist, and author of Drugs 2.0 and Drugs Unlimited, we will be looking at the evidence of digital marketplaces for cannabis sales as a legalization framework.

The event will also be attended by George McBride, author of High Stakes, who is currently researching the connection between the illicit cannabis market and youth crime. See the Volteface High Stakes publication here: volteface.me/publications/high-stakes/

Join us this Sunday for “The Green Screen” debut in Canada, and come talk harm reduction and the future of cannabis legalization in Canada. One should never talk sensible drug policy solutions on an empty stomach – there will be food and drinks provided. Please note, tickets are limited so please RSVP through the eventbrite – however, for those that can’t make it out, we will be livestreaming!
