Last week in Toronto multiple raids took place, confiscating large amounts of recreational marijuana and edibles. The cannabis shops that were involved were claimed to be selling for recreational use.
This raid resulted in 71 criminal charges, and 90 people were arrested.
Police Chief Mark Saunders said that these shops were a general health concern by not having the needed information in regards to thc content, or where the marijuana and products came from.
There are 18 known dispensaries that are legally working under the health Canada act and will remain to be open for operation.
Mr and Mrs emery are fighting for recreational marijuana use and are fighting for legalization. Jodie posted on social media today about the queen street raid last week. Jodie and her husband mark Emery are protesting and are still providing cannabis for recreational use for users above the age of 19.
Cannabis Culture was one of the shops that was involved in the raid last week. They have decided to continue operating their dispensary and they will not give up on providing recreational users with the medication they need.
I can hardly wait for legalization to take place.! To know that people are getting criminal charges and being arrested over marijuana is outrages. I am very appreciative to those that are speaking up and fighting for the legalization. without people standing there ground and continuing to do the right thing by providing marijuana to the sick and healthy our rights would not be herd.
with legalization just around the corner Mr and Mrs Emery are “refusing to be bullied ” by law enforcement.
Difference Between Driving High Or Drunk
There has been a noticeable increase in drug-impaired driving incidents in the past couple years. This has lead authority to take further actions when it comes to driving high.
At this moment it is not an easy process to determine how high a driver actually is, and it can be a long going process that perhaps a lot of officers and authority’s don’t want to waste their time on.
With the breathalyzer possibly becoming capable of detecting whether or not a driver is under the influence of marijuana, it will help reduce the time an officer needs to spend trying to figure out how high you are if you’re even high at all!
It all sounds great for officers and authorities out there that are having to deal with these situations of people driving high on a daily basis, but in reality it’s going to cause many fellow marijuana users problems.
Personally I think that the penalty and consequence of driving under the influence of pot is crazy. I dont believe that you should lose your license over it, or have your vehicle towed . Its unfortunate that the younger generation and few bad apples have to spoil it for those that need marijuana to function in life .
If this study goes through and a device is manufactured to work as a alcohol Breathalyzer would, then it could be a big game changer for many people that have been driving high. Before you know it weed is going to be legal and everywhere and we need to set a good example on how great marijuana is for users. knowing all the good that pot can do for your mind body and soul, yet its seen as something that could potentially ruin your life ???? how can something so good for you be portrayed as that ?
weed and alcohol are 2 completely different substances and authorities sure do have their hands full with figuring out how to handle and address these situations before it becomes legalized. once this happens i think there is gonna be a large group of people that never would have smoked weed due to the fact it was illegal. you’ll find that now they will be open to trying it and once they realize how great it is for them … well the rest is history 🙂
