Ontario has a state-run system for selling alcohol – rather like our licensing trust system. I think that these same outlets are also to sell cannabis.
Which sort of makes sense. But there's also a strong case for keeping cannabis sales away from alcohol sales.
How about looking at Colorado as an exemplar?
Colorado got a few things wrong – allowing over-dosed edibles packaged like kids’ candy was never a good idea – but they’ve continued to pay attention and tweaked regulations as required. Their regulators and legislators seem motivated by evidence rather than scare stories.
On the other hand, I think California’s provision for the expungement of old convictions is the new benchmark for reform.
And I like that Canada is addressing the potential problem of Big Cannabis – the task force report covers diversity in the production sector. It’ll be interesting to see how their "micro” licences for craft producers turn out. It’s probably not something you'd see in capitalist America, but it could be a good solution,
It’s a great spot! One of those places I’d have to go to with a strict budget, or things could get dangerous for me, haha.
Not being too keen on a mission to town, I managed to find it locally locally out west at Euro-Dell – a cool little specialty store on Lincoln Road, nestled awkwardly in an industrial complex beside the motorway.
That place is legendary. They're also the importers for a bunch of good European food lines, including Mutti tomatoes. Croatian family.
It's a nice bike destination from Point Chev – since the upgrade to the motorway interchange, it's northwestern cycleway all the way. (They have also, happily, survived being almost cut off during the works.)
That is horrifying: much worse than the Human Rights Council. I had no idea. Thanks for highlighting it.
I may have my lefty-liberal card withdrawn for saying so, but I agree. It’s way more serious than the UN Human Rights Council.
Nearly as many believed Trump had won the popular vote.
We are fucking doomed.
Putin’s whole intention is to undermine the rules-based world, returning to a 19th Century system where the powerful states can rule unimpeded.
Or, more likely I think, to weaken everyone else and bring them down to Russia’s level.
It’s the rational for Russian interference in the Brexit referendum, as well as the US election.
Absolutely. It all joins up. What really gives me the shits is coming across fools from (ostensibly) both left and right who want to go along with it. It feels to me like Trump apologism is becoming more common outside America.
The righties expose themselves as never having truly believed in the “conservative principles” they espoused, and the lefties basically don’t want to give up their boners for Julian Assange. I mean really, there's no foul action from Trump that won't prompt those idiots to try and bring up Hillary Clinton again.
The question I’m unsure about is who benefits?
And as if everything else wasn't enough, a class action lawsuit alleges that a private facility housing immigrant minors has been forcibly drugging infant minors with powerful antipsychotics.
