Canada’s new pot rule is working with the enforcement of new regulations and the supply chain after the cannabis became legal in Canada.
Before the law forces, key objectives listed by the Canada federal government. These include preventing children and youth from involving with weed, ensuring the weed product is safe and quality in the production chain, across the state.
So the question is, will the objectives will meet after the legalization? CTVNews will explore and measure some of the assurance made by the Canada administration.
Objective Number 1: Keep cannabis away from youngsters
Adults these are teens can purchase the weed legally as per the Cannabis Act in Canada. The amount of plant that can be bought and possessed is small. Every state and region in Canada can impose their age restriction. However, the lowest age that can buy the weed legally must be at least 18 years old.
With the age restriction enforced by the law, it does not mean that those children or under-aged teens and kids will not get their hand away from cannabis and weeds in Canada. However, it does help to reduce marijuana and plants in Canada consumption among them legally.
Actual number 2: “Diminish the number of Canadians with a criminal record.”
Cannabis Act helped us in reducing the Canadian justice system’s burden. These are because the Act will abolish offender charges. The question arises that, what about the people who have convicted the offence and charged before 17 October 2018?
Canada federal government announced that pardons issued to people who possessed 30 grams or less of cannabis and weed in November 2018. These are fair to those who convicted the crime before 17 October 2018, but that did not happen. People who condemned sin before 17 October 2018 will still need to take time until the law is working, then they are only eligible to apply for it.
These have brought to the liberal administration for not able to opting the criminal records. Thus, the Canada administration failed to obtain objective number 2.
Objective Number 3: Safe supply of cannabis
Cannabis has to be provided by a licensed supplier to fortify the safety and standard of the product. Law has been implemented by the Canada federal government to keep this real meet.
Some of the Canadians have reported the incident about receiving mouldy cannabis.
Reports of mould have sold in British Columbia, and Ontario has reported by RedeCan, one of the cannabis and weed manufacturer.
These means that the objectives for legalizing marijuana and weeds in Canada not achieved.
