The Legalization & Distribution Of Marijuana In Canada

Posted by on July 3, 2020 in Federal Law, Government with 0 Comments

The popularity and use of marijuana or weed have grown rapidly in the past few decades in many parts of the world. Research studies from renowned institutions around the world have conclusively proved that marijuana can be beneficial for health in many ways.

The popularity of marijuana as a recreational drug began in the 1960s and took off in many parts of North America in the 70s and 80s. However, the flooding of marijuana in the North American market, during this period, was completely unregulated and all of it was being sold freely in the black market.

It was not until the industry began to hit the billion figure mark that politicians and the government alike began to take an interest. After all, this was big money that wasn’t being taxed and was resulting in increased criminal activities across North America.

Gang violence, drug use, and cartel feuds were on the rise in many major cities resulting in the government having to take harsh measures to try and resolve the issue. The formation of the DEA and other government bodies sought to end the wide-spread use of marijuana but in many ways have failed to do so.

Many believe marijuana to be a gateway drug. While this might be true in some cases studies show that marijuana users seldom seek other drugs for recreational purposes. The cannabis plant contains a chemical called THC which when smoked can have certain effects on the body.

Unlike alcohol or other drugs, these effects are passive, and many marijuana smokers call themselves “fully-functional stoners” meaning that they feel more in tune under the influence of marijuana than when they are not on it.

The attributed health benefits, lack of addiction, and no proven side-effects have made the use of marijuana widely popular all over the world. Its use has further been immortalized by many famous celebrities, singers, and even athletes.

While many countries around the world continue to take a stand against the legalization of marijuana some countries have taken a different course of action. Countries like Amsterdam, Canada, and even several states in the U.S. have legalized the sale and distribution of marijuana.

In Canada, the legalization was as recent as 2019, and already it has had a huge impact on the Canadian economy. Now not only is the Canadian government able to generate tax revenue from the sale and distribution of marijuana but it is also able to ensure that it is all done abiding by the regulations specified.

This has led to the creation of more jobs, an influx in tax revenue, a decrease in associated crime attributed to drug trafficking, and above all a happy public outlook. Buying weed in Canada is as easy as buying a pack of cigarettes. In fact, it is even easier as you can buy weed online with full-confidence knowing that you will receive the best quality marijuana at fair prices all delivered directly to your doorstep.

Looking at the positive health benefits of marijuana and how its legalization (when done correctly) can be a major boost to the economy it is only a matter of time before more countries begin to adopt similar strategies to that of Canada.

Instead of fighting a costly and never-ending war against a drug that is far less damaging to human health than other legalized substances such as alcohol and cigarettes.
