Canada's Government Promises to Legalize Marijuana

Newly elected Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau plans to legalize and regulate recreational marijuana.
What does the legalization look like? Well, they are modeling their program after the US states that regulated it.
Trudeau said in a speech today that Canada currently has a “failed system” and this would help remove the “criminal element” linked to the drug.
They will closely analyze the experiences of Colorado and Washington state, which recently legalized pot, to determine a best fit for Canada.

Community Discussion Time! Let's have a respectful chat about this!

What do you think of this move by Canada? With the promise of Canada legalizing marijuana, what do you think that means for the U.S. and other countries?

I live in Colorado and none of the thingd you are saying about legalizing marijuana so far is even close to true. There has not been an increase in people abusing stronger drugs no more than anywhere else, no one here is trying to legalize heroin or meth or cocaine or anything stronger., What legalization has done is caused tge growing and selling of marijuana to be very regulated. It has generated tons of revenue for the state in taxes and tourism. In my opinion, yes, anything is bad for your body in excess. Marijuana, alcohol, cigarettes, sugar, fatty foods., they all are unhealthy...and yes, I put marijuana in the same category as those others. I won't state it as fact, but im willing to bet that more people die from over-the-counter medications than from marijuana, and one benefit of legalization is that it actually keep people from doing something eay more harmful like synthetic marijuana
I say, legal or illegal, people will choose to use drugs. I'm seeing marijuana at a lesser value if it should be legalized. Making drugs illegal does not stop people from using it. People will find ways and means to destroy their bodies and there's no way you can stop them. I mean one can be helped at some point in time but,you know... Legalize d weed!!
I'm definitely for this because it will certainly make mj use safer- when it's criminalized you can't be sure if what you're using has been tainted with other drugs (which can lead to serious health problems). As it is mj is far less addictive than alcohol and in the states at least leads to far fewer DUI-type incidents. It was criminalized as part of the war on drugs, which was a thinly veiled way to legally suppress people who were protesting the government and fighting for civil rights. I can definitely see the concerns that @InPlainSight and @peahyr brought up, and I hope that following this there's an emphasis on how to use responsibly and safely. But truthfully I think this will mean more revenue through taxes and far fewer needless arrests for nonviolent drug offenders
Canada's new PM knows what's up! He can box, he's good looking, and he's going to legalize weed!
this would help their economy so much.

This Mall Santa Is Toronto's Latest Fashion Icon.
He's making a list. He's checking it twice. And he's also really, really, ridiculously good-looking. Say hello to Paul Mason, a veteran male model who's embraced his age by becoming 'Fashion Santa' for Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Look out, Portland Santa. There's an edgier Mall Santa in town. His promotional photoshoot has gone viral, a collection of shots where Paul assumes the role of a slimmed down, GQ-esque Santa Claus, donning red leather jackets or pulling along a chopped down pine in thick knits and a tailored winter coat. What's up, Santa? You silver fox you. But wait, there's more! According to the mall's official website, every time a visitor shares their selfie with Fashion Santa through social media using the hashtag #YorkdaleFashionSanta, the mall donates $1 to the Sick Kids Foundation, a non-profit funding local pediatric hospitals. I just looked at the Instagram tag and found this lady up here. I mean, I've never seen someone more excited to donate a buck to a cause, have you? In any case, locals aren't the only ones having a fun time with it. Paul - I mean, Santa - has been really impressed with the kind of audience Fashion Santa has convinced to come out and pay him a visit: "On Saturday, I had a woman, she must have been 70 years old, she said, 'I haven't taken a photo with Santa since I was like five.' I love it." So if you're in the Toronto area during the holiday season, get ready to strike a pose with Fashion Santa. It is, after all, for a good cause!
What Do The Protests in Seoul Look Like Now?
This past Friday the Korean Constitutional Court (think of it as the US Supreme Court) ruled unanimously that Park Geun Hye should be officially impeached. Since most of the country wanted this (at her lowest I think she has a 10% approval rating) there were massive celebrations in the streets. There were musicians, free food stalls, and fireworks. Now of course there are plenty of (mostly elderly) people rioting and claiming that this is the end of democracy (when really its just an example of democracy working...) but they are in contained areas surrounded by police. As far as I know 2 people died and many more are injured but its been due to violence by the pro-Park side (for example, the rioters were trying to flip over a police bus and knocked over a speaker which fell and killed an elderly man who was part of the riot...) I walked through the celebration area the day after the announcement if you'd like to take a look and hear the sounds. Skip to 4:20 unless you want to see my friends new cafe opening party haha :) If you could all do me a really big favor: Please give this video a thumbs up on YouTube here. People have been leaving incredibly nasty comments targeting myself and my family (I have deleted and blocked most of them) and this video now has some of the most down-votes I've ever had on a video :/ That would really mean a lot! Thank you ㅠㅠ Korea now has to vote for a new president so that will be starting as we speak :)

CBD for Sleep, CBD Benefits, Side Effects, and Treatment
People have long used the cannabis plant for medicinal and recreational purposes. Compounds called cannabinoids in the plant are responsible for the effects on the brain, and the two most abundant of these are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). People use CBD for a variety of reasons, including reducing seizures, anxiety, and pain. Some studies have demonstrated that CBD may also be a sleep aid. In this article, we look at whether it works and any associated risks. What the research says In the last decade, growing public interest in the benefits of marijuana, and CBD in particular, has encouraged researchers to study its effects. Early studies indicate that high dosages of CBD may support sleep. One investigation found that, compared with a placebo, a CBD dosage of 160 milligrams (mg) increased sleep duration. The researchers also concluded that the placebo, 5 mg of the insomnia drug nitrazepam, and 40, 80, and 160 mg of CBD helped the participants fall asleep. The stress hormone levels of cortisol are typically peak in the morning, but people with insomnia may have high cortisol levels at night. Independent of insomnia, having high cortisol levels at night is associated with an increased nighttime awakening. In one study on the effects of CBD, researchers found that cortisol levels decreased more significantly when participants took 300 or 600 mg of CBD oil. These results suggest that CBD affects the release of cortisol, possibly acting as a sedative. A more recent analysis of CBD and sleep recruited 103 participants who had anxiety or poor sleep. The researchers studied the effects of CBD combined with those of other prescribed medications. The CBD dosages ranged from 25–175 mg. The researchers found that 25 mg was the most effective dosage for anxiety and that addressing troubled sleep required higher dosages. During the 3-month study, the investigators followed up with the participants monthly. At the first follow-up, 66.7% reported an improvement in sleep, but 25% had worsened sleep. 56.1% of the participants reported improved sleep at the second, but 26.8% had worsened sleep. The researchers conclude that although CBD might help people sleep in the short term, the effects may not be sustained. Side effects and other risks of CBD Overall, the available evidence suggests that CBD is well-tolerated. Some people report fatigue and mental sedation with CBD use, but researchers believe this may be related to the dosage. Taking 10–400 mg of CBD per day for an extended period and by different routes did not have a toxic effect on participants in a large retrospective study. Even dosages of up to 1,500 mg per day were well-tolerated, other researchers report. However, determining whether there are long-term risks of CBD use will require further studies. So far, no reports of lethal CBD overdoses exist. Some researchers may be concerned about CBD abuse, but information on significant complications is limited. One study indicates that dosages of 400–700 mg of CBD, which is considered high, can aggravate cognitive deficits in people with schizophrenia. Combining CBD and THC may, however, improve cognition. Researchers do report that CBD may cause other adverse effects, including: alterations of cell viability in studies conducted in cell cultures decreased fertilization capacity inhibition of drug metabolism in the liver reduced activity of P-glycoprotein and other drug transporters If these effects on drug metabolism and transportation are confirmed, it would indicate that CBD interferes with other medications. Overall, more research is necessary. Still, it is suitable for anyone who wants to use CBD to speak with a healthcare provider first. Check out the best CBD for sleep at Sweet Dream Beauty website.
