Canada has gone to pot?

The Canadian Public Health Association has endorsed suggested guidelines for the safe use of marijuana.

A group of researchers compiled the guidelines. They say because so many people admit to using marijuana, the country should take a proactive approach toward making sure the drug is used safely.

More than 10 percent of Canadian adults reported using cannabis in the past year. Among people 16 to 25, more than a third admit marijuana use.

Some of the recommendations include campaigns about the dangers of driving while high and abstaining from cannabis during pregnancy.

Tell me it ain't so?

Sounds like a reasonable approach on the part of the CPHA to me.

My guess is the statistics are similar south of our border, the only difference being the consequences.

Got a room to rent? I'm immigrating to Canada. It's actually a very intelligent approach.

Never heard the pregnancy thing before. Weed is harmless but the US who made it illegal initially seems the last to know.

Educating people as opposed to locking them up and ruining so many aspects of their life = win.

Hopefully we get a clue here.

I think it makes more sense to ensure a product is used safely than to fight a battle against it that was doomed from the outset.

Anslinger sounds like the kind of guy that popped pills and took shots in private while yelling at his boyfriend.

No, that would be J. Edger Hoover.
