Provincial health officer’s report calls for decriminalization of people who use drugs ...

Presumably then police officers would no longer be called to act as first responders in overdose cases and could be deployed to other functions. Sounds like a win-win.

Well if there were other first responders on the scene then no, why involve the police?

 

If there were no other first responders on the scene, how would they determine if it's a drug overdose before they attend?

Victoria decriminalized drug possession years ago and we still have overdoses.

Well at least Del was kind enough to confirm what I said although he seems to take it a step further by suggesting that it is ok to deal drugs as well as long as you don't start stabbing or shooting people!

 

Victoria Police Chief Del Manak, who attended the news conference with Henry, said there is already de-facto decriminalization of simple possession in some jurisdictions.

 

“I can tell you from the Victoria Police Department’s perspective, I dedicate zero resources to minor drug possession,” he said.

“What we do is we target drug traffickers who use violence — whether it’s physical violence or sexualized violence — to prey on the most vulnerable in our communities. That’s where the efforts are put.”

With what medical professionals? Gotta get some of those in the province before we can start offering treatment options!

Kitchener, Ont. music festival will allow visitors to BYOC this summer
 
Although the festival may be implementing a more permissive new cannabis policy, organizers discourage the use of other recreational drugs at the event

Matt.

In your backyard you may be in possession as we speak




“Dried mushrooms are illegal to possess, purchase and use, however, there are no laws that prohibit the possession and the consumption of fresh mushrooms in Canada. As mentioned, it is legal to purchase grow kits and spores. Psilocybin is a schedule III drug here and prison time awaits people who possess and manufacture of this substance.“

"Outdoor production is definitely cheaper," he says. "There is less equipment involved, and it's more environmentally friendly. There is no input of electricity to power grow-lights, for example."

He adds that no matter where people grow their cannabis, there is a cost advantage to doing it yourself.

"For the price-conscious consumer, if you're paying around $10 a gram for the varieties at the store, you might be only paying 50 cents per gram or less for a variety you grow yourself at home," says Rea.

By comparison, 12 of the 13 municipalities can also add this one to a long list of opportunities blown.  Which of the 13 muni's seems to be on the right track to getting it right? (hint: it is NOT Victoria)   Canada ‘blew’ its chance to be global pot leader, says investment bank leader A lack of policy innovation, a messy patchwork of provincial regulations and severe restrictions on marketing and branding have left Canadian pot companies eating the Americans' dust, says Selfe

https://nationalpost...obal-pot-leader

 

States like California sell multiple products, have well-known brands and even allow home delivery, but Canada’s market is restricted to dried flower and oils and branding essentially “doesn’t exist,” Selfe said.

“It’s almost like you’re buying something dirty in brown paper bags,” he said. “It’s like liquor in the ’60s.”

“It’s a mess,” Selfe said.

pot will be grown outdoors in cheap labour countries like anything else. not sure we had a chance to be a leader in that.
