At long last, cannabis is mainstream news, and big news is coming from Canada.
On July 1, 2018, Canada is set to become just the second country in the world to legalize marijuana. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ran on a platform to abolish decades of cannabis prohibition and to lead the world towards responsible legalization.
This week, the Tragically Hip announced a partnership with Canadian medical marijuana company Newstrike Resources. The company has wisely joined forces with a band that has embraced their Canadian roots both in song and in their support of aboriginal social justice.
Canadian medical marijuana is being exported around the world and is becoming known for the quality and potency of the product. As the larger recreational pot market becomes legal, some have said that marijuana could be to Canada what wine is to France.
These headlines are just some of the exciting cannabis news coming out of Canada. Stay tuned for more posts and discussion if you’re watching this emerging industry!
