Good news for the Canadian society. The Conservative government of the country has assured to privatize the medical marijuana production.
The cannabis retailers were displeased by the unjust of the government for a long time. Leona Aglukkaq, the federal Health Minister, has surprisingly announced on Sunday stating that the privatization is going to act for the 26,000 Canadian people, who use the medical cannabis for recreational purposes.
According to the judicious people, this might be a far sighted move by Harper in order to take over the supplies of marijuana from Washington and Colorado, who have just issued the same legalization.
The Canadian reefer market is active as well, resulting in a 55-fold increase over the last decade, as acknowledged by Aglukkaq.
From the local fire departments to the economies of the country, the criminalization laws of medical marijuana Canada have bothered the country in various aspects big time. Similarly, with the newly evolved rules, the private entrepreneurs will now be irked as the government bureaucrats are to control marijuana production.
The B.C. website Price of Weed gives the data that the medical cannabis Canada production is marketed in the range between $ 7 and $ 10 per gram. On the other hand, the unionized civil servants are been provided with the same product for just an average of $ 5 per gram.
The union bosses and the democratic parties might have the real fun, but the conservative Canada is still suffering by the unjust.
Canada is a country, where marijuana industry is a normal one. While eliminating the monopoly of wheat production over that of grain, the government has failed to do the same for the struggling marijuana entrepreneurs in the country.
The new decision regarding cannabis is definitely a part of Harper’s ambition towards trade, and is a similarity to his free trade pact with Columbia in 2011. Marijuana can be one of the major, or at least initial, products where Colombia and Canada have a trading relationship with.
As a matter of fact, Canada can also be served with the highly skilled professionals of the developed countries like Albania and Colombia who are experienced enough regarding the industry of marijuana.
This way, security enforcement officers, lower level operatives, payment encouragement officers and other kinds of businessmen will be able to enter the country. Starting as temporary skilled workers, they can support the provincial apprenticed programs in regards to the drug trade when the trade commences well enough.
In the process, Ottawa’s adoption of international investment protective agreements are going to make sure that the marijuana industry will remain safe from any government and public interference in the long run.
Also, the recent laws are ensuring that despite the present government’s losing power, the next government body will not be able to dismantle the legalization of the marijuana industry.
And lastly, the Vancouver medical dispensaries are going to treat the drug as just another prescription medical product, being only amazed at the announcement of Aglukkaq. The political payroll and its consequences will remain as it is.
The legislation regarding Canada medical marijuana is back to discussions among the British Columbians as soon as the Washington residents preferred to decriminalize the drug usage in recreational parameters. The vote in Washington occurred during the election of the US in November came around with this new legalization.
Canada is highly affected by the Washington vote. The recent debates are surrounding on how close the Great White North government is to legalize the medical cannabis and what will be the effects on the $ 7 billion marijuana industry of B. C.
There was a riot in 1907 by the Asiatic Exclusion League which saw Chinatown of Vancouver torn apart. The history of the legal matters of marijuana started right from that time, according to a report of the Senate committee in 2002.
The then-deputy minister of labor, William Lyon Mackenzie King, paid a visit to Chinatown looking for providing the required compensation right after the riot took place. There were activists who met him and asked for restraining the drug trade that was brought to the country by the Chinese. The Chinese workers there used marijuana for treating sickness and for recreational purposes. That was exactly the same way the native workers used alcohol in Chinatown.
King also noticed that the drug was used by the natives too. As a result of the meetings between King and the activists, the Opium Act of 1908 was evolved, which is now one of the major acts of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Today’s activists are looking forward in the present government regulations either being relaxed or dismantled completely.
The rules regarding the medical marijuana Canada were relaxed in 2002, but the Liberal government did not let these rules pass. Rather, the Conservative governing party had applied compulsory sentences for the drug related offenses.
For the time being, there is no forthcoming activity for decriminalizing medical cannabis Canada.
