Five Steps to Legalizing Cannabis

What are the five steps to legalizing cannabis? We shouldn’t look to Canada for guidance. They botched it so bad the government lost money selling weed. Also, the government never legalized the legacy grower community (colloquially known as BC Bud). And no cannabis records have been expunged despite almost half a decade after legalization. Cops and politicians cashed in nicely, though. What about the United States? They’re no good, either. Federally, it’s still illegal. And even if you find yourself […]

How Accurate is the Dräger Drug Test? 

Why do Canadian police use the Dräger Drug Test to detect cannabis use? The Dräger Drug Test is a device used to test oral fluid samples for drugs, such as cocaine, amphetamines, opiates, and cannabis. Law enforcement agencies in Canada use it as a roadside sobriety test. They consider it a quick and non-invasive way of testing for drugs, with results typically available within minutes. But the Dräger Drug Test isn’t without its criticisms. For example, it tests for cannabis […]

Will the FDA Regulate CBD?

Will the FDA regulate CBD? It’s a question on many minds as the FDA commissioner is to appear before the U.S. House Oversight Committee. Chairman of the Committee, James Comer, wants details on CBD. He said: “It’s not just their lack of action with respect to CBD and other types of hemp. It’s their inaction regarding a lot of areas of their jurisdiction … We’ve got an agency here that has a big budget, they have a lot of employees, […]

Justin’s Immigration Fraud (& the Cannabis Solution)

In a previous post, I outlined Justin’s immigration fraud and the cannabis solution. I received a few messages about that piece. One was an inquiry, the others were hate, and I’m disgusted and offended that anyone could disagree with me. They’re obviously more interested in promoting misinformation. Just kidding. While the last post focused on Justin’s blatant corruption with the firm McKinsey, this post goes into greater detail regarding immigration economics. Even if the Trudeau government didn’t hand $66 million […]

The Case Against Safe Supply?

Is there a case against safe supply? Lately, Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre has faced criticisms for his opposition to safe supply sites, also known as “safe injection sites” or “overdose prevention sites.” These are facilities where people use substances under the supervision of trained staff. These facilities aim to reduce the harm associated with drug use by providing a safe and hygienic environment and access to clean needles and other supplies, counselling, and medical care in case of overdose. With […]

1/3 of People with Chronic Pain Choose Cannabis

Justin’s Immigration Corruption (And the Cannabis Solution)

Justin’s immigration corruption stems from why he’s bringing in record amounts of immigrants (the highest levels in history, more than the number of people brought in to populate the prairies in the late 19th and early 20th century). This wouldn’t be an issue if this country could handle such an influx. But with a health care system on the verge of collapse, a bubble real estate market, inflation, and a looming economic downturn, is now the time to welcome millions […]

Anesthesia & Cannabis 

Should doctors screen patients undergoing anesthesia for cannabis? According to the Americans Society of Regional Anesthesia (ASRA), the answer is an unequivocal yes. These doctors and other medical professionals base their conclusions on a single study. According to researchers at the Cleveland Clinic, cannabis users experienced 14 percent more pain the day after surgery than non-cannabis consumers. Researchers concluded this after analyzing pain and opioid records from 35,000 patients, including 1,600 people using medical cannabis at least one month before […]

FTX & Cannabis

What’s the connection between FTX and cannabis? Is it FTX’s appeal to cannabis companies to do banking with them? Or is there a bigger picture to consider? Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) is the former head of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX. Authorities have charged him with defrauding customers and investors. He was arrested last month and released on a $250 million bail. If convicted, SBF faces more than 100 years in prison. While the 30-year-old former billionaire refuses to admit he defrauded […]
