All of which have some sort of regulation attached to them.

And the best chance of that is by bringing the sale of it into the light and out of dealer houses and the streets.

Yes they do, they come in and ensure the preparation process is according to specific standards. 

 

Oh, I see, yes, this is true.  If you run a commercial bakery, and supply a set of convenience stores that have no food preparation facilities, that food preparation does get inspected at the bakery.  True.

Alcohol:

Short-Term Health Risks

Excessive alcohol use has immediate effects that increase the risk of many harmful health conditions. These are most often the result of binge drinking and include the following:

  • Injuries, such as motor vehicle crashes, falls, drownings, and burns.6,7
  • Violence, including homicide, suicide, sexual assault, and intimate partner violence.6-10
  • Alcohol poisoning, a medical emergency that results from high blood alcohol levels.11
  • Risky sexual behaviors, including unprotected sex or sex with multiple partners. These behaviors can result in unintended pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV.12,13
  • Miscarriage and stillbirth or fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) among pregnant women.6,12,14,15

Long-Term Health Risks

Over time, excessive alcohol use can lead to the development of chronic diseases and other serious problems including:

  • High blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, liver disease, and digestive problems.6,16-21
  • Cancer of the breast, mouth, throat, esophagus, liver, and colon.6,22
  • Learning and memory problems, including dementia and poor school performance.6
  • Mental health problems, including depression and anxiety.6,23
  • Social problems, including lost productivity, family problems, and unemployment.6,24,25
  • Alcohol dependence, or alcoholism.6

 

88,00 deaths Alcohol related deaths per year in the US

 

Marijuana:

 

Among the known or suspected chronic effects of marijuana are: 

  1. short-term memory impairment and slowness of learning. 

  2. impaired lung function similar to that found in cigarette smokers. Indications are that more serious effects, such as cancer and other lung disease, follow extended use. 

  3. decreased sperm count and sperm motility. 

  4. interference with ovulation and pre-natal development. 

  5. impaired immune response. 

  6. possible adverse effects on heart function. 

  7. by-products of marijuana remaining in body fat for several weeks, with unknown consequences. The storage of these by-products increases the possiblilties for chronic, as well as residual, effects on performance, even after the acute reaction to the drug has worn off. 

An exhaustive search of the literature finds no credible reports of deaths induced by marijuana. The US Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) records instances of drug mentions in medical examiners' reports, and though marijuana is mentioned, it is usually in combination with alcohol or other drugs. Marijuana alone has not been shown to cause an overdose death.

Then get it legalized and fully regulated. Until then, it cannot be legally sold in storefronts in Canada. The current regulations can be found: http://www.hc-sc.gc....a/index-eng.php

 

An excerpt from the MMPR explicitly states: (emphasis is mine)

  • dried marijuana for medical purposes is distributed through regulated, commercial Licensed Producers who produce a variety of strains;
  • Licensed Producers must demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements such as quality control standards, record-keeping of all activities, as well as inventories of marijuana, and physical security measures to protect against potential diversion;
  • storefronts or retail outlets are not permitted

Yup, it's all heavily regulated.

The guy making your pot cookies could have just walked out of the bathroom without washing his hands and rolled the dough where his cat was just walking about.

Obviously most cases are not like that, but we have no control, none whatsoever over those edible goods. People just blindly assume a pot cookie is a heavenly edible that will make them feel better. Until they get food poisoning. And then what? Who does VIHA educate? Who does VIHA restrict from unscrupulous food preparation? How can the public reaserch their record? The answer is nobody, nobody, and not possible.

Furthermore, there are currently no systems in place that can ensure a proper dosage. It's ludicrous that we have a "medicinal" industry sprouting up all over the place that takes absolutely no care to ensure that the buyers are getting the dosage that they expect or require. A pot cookie for one guy will mellow him out. Another guy will get into a car after ingesting one then start hallucinating behind the wheel (and yeah, people can hallucinate from an improper dose of ingested pot).

This industry is like the wild west. The operators are acting like amateurs with no business sense to avoid controversy over simple things like licenses. I have no sympathy for a business, regardless of what is sells or provides, that doesn't have an operator who is prepared to play by the rules.

This. If marijuana sellers don't like the rules, work with all relevant regulatory bodies to get the rules changed - don't just flaunt them and hope a sympathetic jurisdiction will take your side.

Good god! Just think of all those unregulated cookies and cakes being consumed by our children at day cares and preschools all over the country! All being baked in filthy cat and dog infested houses! Regulate this out of control public consumption of non corporate baked goods now!!!!

When day cares and pre-schools attempt to set up store front businesses without licenses then there will be a relevant issue.

So why are there storefront operations, when mail-order is now a legal, regulated and quality-controlled option?  Price?  Does private or employer provided extended health care plans not cover medicinal marijuana, when prescribed?

 

EDIT: It appears only Veteran Affairs Canada will cover the cost, no private or government extended medical insurers.

Your judgment is clouded by the emotion you feel towards the product. There are public safety standards that are being flaunted. I could care less about the product, but if someone is going to operate a business, they need to play by the rules.

Drug dealers play by the rules when the cops come knocking on their door. Does a pot dispensary think that because it has a storefront it is now operating in some la la land that doesn't accept regulation and government oversight?

Honestly, if this industry wants to be respected it needs to grow up fast and get smart. Flaunting rules and playing up the "I didn't know" card is lame.

I think all drugs ought to be made legal.  And regulation can be quite light really.  It's possible to make alcohol or grow tobacco at home, but the production and distribution system has enough competition that not many people make their own.  Competition has driven down the cost so low, even with the high taxes.

Hey, don't get me wrong, if you support food producers who have no business license, are not regulated by food safety standards and who sell you whatever they want with medicinal ingredients that can affect you in a variety of ways, that's your choice.

"“It is about emerging science that not only shows and proves what marijuana can do for the body but provides better insights into the mechanisms of marijuana in the brain, helping us better understand a plant whose benefits have been documented for thousands of years.

This journey is also about a Draconian system where politics overrides science and patients are caught in the middle.”

Forget marijuana in this equation. It's not about the pot (nobody is arguing the benefits of pot for medicinal purposes) -- it's about food safety standards. Marijuana edibles are being made with no oversight, none, in conditions that our system of food safety has no control over whatsoever. As more people consume these edibles the risk of contracting viruses or getting sick from improperly made, handled, or stored foods grows.

 

I could care less what someone sells at a market, but with medicinal marijuana dispensaries you're not actually standing there talking to the chef/baker, you're just talking to someone behind a till. They can't tell you how the product was made, they just sell it. This is a major problem.
