Overcoming Canada's cannabis shortage

Shortages of Canadian marijuana appeared immediately after recreational sales of cannabis starting from October 2018.  Hence, there is a typical Canadian refrain almost lately.  Because of little inventory remaining, many stores are closed three days a week, and provincial distributors are blaming federal regulations and producers. Some of the giant retailer’s licenses have also frozen and some are limited to 25 stores on the state level.

Marijuana research in Canada stands in stark contrast with what is happening in the United States. With its progressive approach, Canada has more in common with world-leading Israel when it comes to cannabis research.

Why a Canadian cannabis conglomerate can't make money in Oregon

Kids and cannabis

Cannabis and kids is a big research topic, especially since the drug’s legalization here last fall.

A new Health Canada study reports that kids, as young as 13, are twice as likely to smoke weed than cigarettes.

Although both substances are illegal for those underage, the 13- and 14-year-old high school students report that 7% of them had tried pot at least once, while 8% said they used occasionally. tobacco use came in at 4%.

Another recent survey by Health Canada reports an upswing in cannabis use among high school students — but prior to legalization. The study’s lead author Dr. Alexandra Zuckerman reports that public perception began shifting in 2014, likely due to lots of cannabis discussion and widespread medical cannabis use.
