Cannabis package recycling rolled out Canada-wide

Tweed, a subsidiary of Smiths Falls-based cannabis producer Canopy Growth, partnered with TerraCycle, an American recycling company, to introduce the first Canada-wide cannabis packaging recycling program, the companies announced Monday.

Many cannabis consumers have long complained about the packaging that ends up in the landfill as a result of Health Canada’s rules requiring pot producers to package products in tamper-proof and child-resistant containers that prevent contamination.

The packaging can be deposited at J. London at 691 Richmond St. and Central Cannabis at 666 Wonderland Rd., two of the more than 100 bricks-and-mortar cannabis retail outlets participating in the program.

Cannabis trends: CBD oil for seniors, pot that won't make you hungry, and more

The future of cannabis consumption may not involve the cannabis plant at all.

“Years from now, most of the [major cannabis producers] aren’t going to grow a single plant,” Boris Jordan, founder of investment firm Measure 8 Venture Partners, said Tuesday at the GMP Securities 2019 Global Cannabis Conference in Toronto.

Jordan and other industry-watchers expect that demand for edibles, vapes, oils and other non-leaf cannabis products will eventually overtake the more traditional form of the drug.

Data backs them up. Flower-based products made up 66.1 per cent of the Colorado market in 2014 and only 54.1 per cent of the market in 2017, according to Miles Light, a University of Colorado economist with the Marijuana Policy Group.

The state of hemp

Earlier this year, a trucker hauling nearly 7,000 pounds of hemp found himself in an Idaho jail cell. When he pulled into the East Boise Port of Entry weigh station for a routine inspection, a state trooper seized the truck and charged the driver with felony drug trafficking—a crime that carries a minimum of five years in prison and a fine of at least $15,000. The case remains unresolved.

Cannabis companies say they are growing enough pot, they just can’t deliver it

One pesky stamp has become the symbol of a continuing problem in Canada: Pot producers struggling to get enough cannabis to market, at least in the ways that buyers want it. Pot producers had to scramble to apply the required excise-tax stamps with no glue as legalization kicked off last October, and many are still having to apply them by hand to some packages months later as supply issues continue.

Should we blame marijuana for a 14-year high in positive work-related drug tests?

It's been a pretty incredible ride for the marijuana movement over the past couple of years. After spending decades as a taboo topic that lawmakers almost always swept under the rug, cannabis has now become a mainstream issue. It's been legalized for adult consumption in Canada, has been given the green light in some medical capacity in more than 40 countries around the world, and has more support in the U.S. than at any point over the past 50 years, according to polling by Gallup.
