CN ON: Column: The Inequity Of Medical Marijuana

Canada (MAP) - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 07:00
Sudbury Star, 24 Jul 2014 - The use of medical marijuana is a subject many people don't want to weigh in on. Neither did I under I heard from Alexander Stewart. Stewart, 54, has embarked on a hunger strike to draw attention to the need for better access to medical marijuana for those who have a licence from Health Canada to purchase it.

Vancouver Sun, 24 Jul 2014 - Re: Easy to get, easy to buy, Special Report, July 19 As a licensed naturopathic doctor focused on primary care and adjunctive cancer therapies, I have noticed a staggering increase in patient queries about the medicinal use of marijuana. We see the same in the media, whether CNN profiling Dr. Gupta, myriad patient testimonials, or the advent of legalization in certain states.

CN PI: Column: Is Your Health Going Up In Smoke?

Canada (MAP) - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 07:00
The Journal-Pioneer, 23 Jul 2014 - When Cheech and Chong lit up the movie screens with their marijuana-fogged dialogue - "Hey man, how's my driving?" "I think we're parked, man" - they probably never imagined cannabis would become legal. But today more than 20 states have authorized medical marijuana, while Colorado and Washington have legalized it for personal use.

CN BC: PUB LTE: U.S. Relations No Excuse For Marijuana Laws

Canada (MAP) - Tue, 07/22/2014 - 07:00
Vancouver Sun, 22 Jul 2014 - Re: Lots of buzz over first pot licences, July 8 (and related stories) Now that neighbouring Washington state and Colorado have legalized marijuana, Ottawa can no longer claim Canada must maintain marijuana prohibition to maintain good U.S. relations. The Canadian Senate in 2002 offered a common-sense alternative to marijuana prohibition when the special committee on illegal drugs concluded marijuana is relatively benign, prohibition contributes to organized crime, and law enforcement efforts have little impact on patterns of use.

Alberni Valley Times, 21 Jul 2014 - Even the financial TV news channels are agog at the sight of Colorado's new retail marijuana shops, which opened for business Wednesday. Note: they are not dispensaries; the state has done away with the medical window dressing so zealously clung to by Health Canada.

CN ON: Column: Criminal Juries All-Powerful

Canada (MAP) - Sat, 07/19/2014 - 07:00
The Chatham Daily News, 19 Jul 2014 - My recent column advocating the abolition of civil jury trials caused some confusion. To be clear, I am not advocating the abolition of juries for criminal trials. The right to a jury trial is enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms for anyone charged with an offence - other than under military law - for which there is a potential sentence of five years or more.

CN ON: PUB LTE: Drug Raids Don't Help

Canada (MAP) - Sat, 07/19/2014 - 07:00
The Peterborough Examiner, 19 Jul 2014 - The Project Blackrock drug raid was no doubt well-intended, but ultimately counterproductive. Attempts to limit the supply of illegal drugs while demand remains constant only increase the profitability of drug trafficking. For addictive drugs like prescription narcotics, a spike in street prices leads desperate addicts to increase criminal activity to feed desperate habits. The drug war doesn't fight crime, it fuels crime. With alcohol prohibition repealed, liquor bootleggers no longer gun each other down in drive-by shootings, nor do consumers go blind drinking unregulated bathtub gin.
