Canada's Marijuana Sales Topped $110 Million in a Month for the First Time

One year ago, marijuana stocks were about the hottest investment on Wall Street. Today, they're considered an investment that some wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole.

The expectation had long been that Canadian pot sales would skyrocket as soon adult-use weed received the green light in licensed dispensaries. Unfortunately, things didn't go as planned, with persistent supply issues keeping product off retail shelves, thereby allowing the black market to thrive.

Opening a legal cannabis storefront looks different today than it did a year ago

The velvet rope was in place, red carpet rolled out and balloons were even blowing in the wind along with banners announcing the opening of Tokyo Smoke's latest storefront Monday.

But unlike the province's first legal cannabis outlet openings nearly a year ago, which were met with crowds of customers lineup up out the door, the response to Stoney Creek's first shop was significantly more subdued.

Inside the spotless store, black-sweatered staff members eager to share their knowledge mingled with the people who trickled in about half an hour after it first opened its doors.

How will marijuana use affect us when we're older?

What effect does marijuana have on the aging body? In partnership with the National Institute of Health, the University of Iowa plans to find out with a first-of-its-kind research project.

Neurologist and radiologist Dr. Thorsten Rudroff, whose background includes a PhD in neurophysiology and a degree in physical therapy, is heading up the study. Exploring cognition, motor function, balance and other elements of the human body, Thorsten  believes the time has come to “find out if medical marijuana increases this risk of cognitive issues and which products with higher or lower THC content, are safe to use.”

‘Wild west on vaping products’: 50,000 Alberta teens used it within 30 days shows health survey

Roughly 50,000 school-age children in Alberta have dabbled in vaping within a 30-day period, shows a new survey that has sparked renewed calls for stricter legislation.

“It is the wild west on vaping products,” said Les Hagen, with Action on Smoking and Health, on Monday. “The federal and provincial governments have had a lot of time to act. They were kind of looking at each other, wondering who would move first but unfortunately, in the meantime, all of these marketing firms and vaping companies moved in and decided to create a youth epidemic.”

'The government doesn't know how to sell drugs': Does Nova Scotia really need more cannabis stores?

For Michelle, driving to the closest provincially regulated cannabis store isn’t worth the gas money. Her closest option is nearly 70 kilometres from her home in Lawrencetown, N.S., a village of 668 people. 

“We started growing just because of where we’re situated,” said Michelle, who asked to keep her last name private. “It’s not convenient to go to the NSLC, and I found the quality just wasn’t there for what you’re paying.” Before that, she bought from a “backyard dealer” who also grew his own.

Canadian Teenagers Stopped Smoking Weed After Legalization

A new report from Statistics Canada adds to a growing body of evidence that marijuana legalization dissuades adolescent use.

It would be wrong to state that marijuana legalization causes a drop in teenage use, due to a lack of rigorous scientific studies on the matter. A coloration is developing, however. According to a new report from Statistics Canada, teenage use of cannabis has declined following adult-use legalization in the country.
