Canada’s Pot Dispensaries Out of Hand Issue
Canada’s Pot Dispensaries Are Popping Up Everywhere..
Despite the federal rules in Canada, there are still many illegal dispensaries opening in the city. Moreover, illegal pot dispensaries have become common in Vancouver. Also, the city council is trying to license and regulate rather than arresting and raiding the store.
Several Outlets Will Set to Open in Montreal..
What’s more is that there are 6 several pot dispensaries that will set to open in Montreal. Jodie Emery and her husband Marc Emery, a marijuana activist that owns the Cannabis Culture brand. They said in an interview that there are between 5 to 10 outlets that will set to open by the end of the year.
Furthermore, 19 and older will be able to buy pot. However, in the U.S you need medical card to purchase medical marijuana. Although, Canadians can purchase without marijuana even without a membership or medical requirements, Jodie added. But under the current federal legislation, the said outlets are illegal.
The Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said during a press conference that the laws will stand its decision until they’re changed. Also, Montreal Police said that they might intervene if such laws are breach.
Canada’s Federal Government said..
Furthermore, this spring federal government is planning on legalizing cannabis. While, Friday (Dec. 16, 2016) night the self proclaimed “Prince of Pot” Marc Emery got arrested by the Montreal Police. 18 Kilograms of cannabis were seized after the opening of the six illegal pot dispensaries in the city.
However, Marc Emery said after spending a night in Montreal Jail that he is “Feeling good”. He is now charge with drug trafficking, and possession with a $5,000 bail.
If Canada Legalizes Pot in 2017
In hope that Canada will legalize marijuana in 2017. Canada will have 3.8 mil. legal marijuana users and they are demanding for 575,000 kilograms or 1.27 mil pounds of recreational and medical pot.
Moreover, Canada wants to become the second country that would legalize marijuana. After Uruguay, which legalized in 2014 and Colorado was the first to allow legal sales of recreational pot in 2014.
Let’s wait for 2017 if the Federal Government is going to stick to their plan on legalizing marijuana next year. As for the illegal dispensaries in Canada, we are hoping for the good news this coming 2017.
