Canada (MAP) - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 07:00
Globe and Mail, 25 Jul 2014 - Police appear to be losing their zeal for investigating marijuana-related offences - particularly those related to cases of trafficking and production.

CN NS: Column: Special Training Needed For Drug Dealers

Canada (MAP) - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 07:00
Amherst News, 25 Jul 2014 - Dr. Brian Ferguson has come up with a really novel idea. He would like to see to it that drug dealers receive training related to their trade. It might be a degree in pharmacology, or at the very least a bachelor's degree in chemistry. The problem - as Dr. Ferguson has noted - is that those who are selling drugs have no idea what the impact will be on their customers. They don't have enough knowledge, good common sense, and concern to warn the person who might be tempted to "experience" the effects of oxycodone and/or hydromorphone ... or one of the so-called designer drugs being sold on the street.

CN ON: Column: Has Time Come For Us To Revisit Prohibition?

Kingston Whig-Standard, 24 Jul 2014 - Ottawa has a problem with guns and gangs. Several problems actually. But the biggest one, as usual, is conceptual, because if you don't realize what you're doing wrong you can't change it. On the surface our problem is a spate of people being shot in the legs in public housing. The victims then "refuse to cooperate with the police," sociology-speak for "they won't tell the cops who did it."

CN BC: LTE: Pot Sellers Are Hardly 'Crusaders'

Vancouver Sun, 24 Jul 2014 - Re: Marijuana not so medical, Letters, July 2 I totally agree with Rachel Rose and Isabelle Fieschi that we need to send the right message to our kids. Headlines that refer to someone who opens a chain of unregulated marijuana dispensaries as a "crusader" (Pot crusader vows it's business as usual, Vancouver Sun, July 22) would be a good place to start our introspection.

We see the same in the media, whether CNN profiling Dr. Gupta, myriad patient testimonials, or the advent of legalization in certain states.
