Canada (MAP) - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 07:00
Kingston Whig-Standard, 21 Aug 2014 - A reasoned political debate about marijuana is almost as impossible as debating abortion laws or climate change. Still, some voices have more influence, and right now one of them is Justin Trudeau's. The Liberal leader wants marijuana legalized. This comes after his opinion "evolved" from the more moderate stand of decriminalization.

CN BC: Treatment Program Improving Lives And Communities

Canada (MAP) - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 07:00
Campbell River Mirror, 20 Aug 2014 - British Columbia's Opioid Substitution Treatment (OST) system, which replaces heroin and other illegal narcotics with medically prescribed opiates such as methadone, is being touted as a success-but there's still progress to be made. A recent report published by the Office of the Provincial Health Officer (OPHO) of B.C. has concluded that the increase in availability of the treatment, as well as the increase in average duration of treatment of OST patients has "helped contribute to the lower incidence of HIV infection among those who inject drugs," as well as decrease the mortality rate of those addicted to opiates.

Canada (MAP) - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 07:00
The Sun Times, 19 Aug 2014 - You have to give Marc Emery credit: After more than four years in a U.S. prison, he can still draw a crowd. Better yet (from his point of view), he can still wrangle the news media. The "Prince of Pot," as journalists and his disciples have dubbed him, has certainly earned that nickname. A native Londoner, he has spent most of his adult life championing the cause of cannabis policy reform.
