In 2017, Canada will become the first G7 nation to fully legalize marijuana use. The stock prices of cannabis companies reveal investors are anticipating millions of users and a multi-billion market. In terms of how it’s regulated, will Canada get it right? Earlier this month, a federal task force made 80 recommendations to the government, among them, setting the age limit to 18. Bloomberg TV Canada’s Amanda Lang speaks to W.A. Bogart, professor of Law at the University of Windsor and author of “Off The Street: Legalizing Drugs,” and Bruce Linton, CEO of Canopy Growth, Canada’s first marijuana “unicorn” after reaching a billion-dollar valuation.

Ayahuasca has become very popular across the globe; “the more I drank, the more I found I could connect and really learn to love myself again”. However, with numerous side-effects, sometimes lethal, are the healing powers of the drug a real aid or are the people using it, just being exploited?

Ayahuasca can have extreme negative health effects if taken with some presciptions drugs, especially antidepressants such as Prozac and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. A few deaths have been attributed to the use of ayahuacsa, although the causes of the deaths have not all been conclusively determined. In at least some cases ayahuasca use might have directly resulted in the fatality.
The primary risks associated with ayahuasca are the inclusion of a MAOI as a definitional component of the brew and the fact that there is no single recipe for ayahuasca and admixture plants can include any of a wide variety of psychoactives including Datura or Brugmansia. MAOIs can be dangerous because they inhibit an enzyme important in the metabolic breakdown of many foods and drugs. The combination of MAOIs with certain drugs, particularly stimulants, can lead to dangerous or potentially fatal medical situations.
Traditional ayahuasca use involves a complex set of pre-ceremony dietary guidelines that exclude many foods and modern shamans require that participants stop using most pharmaceuticals (even anti-malarial and anti-diarrhea drugs) in order to take ayahuasca with them. Additionally, the strength/potency of ayahuasca brews varies from batch to batch, which can impact the risks related to contraindicated combinations.
Finally, the term “ayahuasca” is sometimes used for “pharmahuasca” or blends of pure or extracted chemicals combined to mimic the effects of the traditional ayahuasca brews. The health risks associated with all drugs are dose-dependent and pharmahuasca-type ayahuascas can easily include much higher dose levels than plant-based ayahuascas and are often consumed by less experienced self-experimenters and often without experienced sitter/guide.
Famous Case: Kyle Nolan – September 2012
Very widely reported ayahuasca-related fatality of an 18-year-old young man. Kyle Nolan travelled to Peru to take part in an ayahuasca ceremony, but died while there. The shaman, Jose Manuel Pineda, buried Mr. Nolan’s body and later told his family Kyle had simply gone missing. On further investigation, the shaman admitted that Kyle had died during the ceremony, and said he had taken an excessive dose. Nolan’s family was suspicious and his father stated, “I believe my son was murdered because people don’t die from ingesting ayahuasca”. As of April 2013, no final information indicating Kyle died from ayahuasca ingestion has been published.

If you smoke marijuana should you be a criminal? A former addict shares his views on the current drug enforcement policy regarding marijuana.
If you struggle to quit drinking or using drugs feel free to reach out to me!
If we don’t see pot legal by 2018 I’m shaving my head. We need to make marijuana legal! #SaveCGsHair campaign! Make the weed legal please! I like my ginger locks!
Why in 2017 do we still see marijuana illegal? The cannabis legal status currently has no logical backbone! The war on drugs is fighting the wrong drugs and helping the cartel! The drug policy is senseless jibberish. We will see pot legalized at some point, why not today? I will stop at nothing until I see marijuana legalized!
The “marijuana problem” is simply the legal status of pot gives kids access to other illegal drugs. Marijuana isn’t all that benign, but at least it doesn’t cause irreversible brain damage as soon as THC crosses the blood brain barrier. If you choose to smoke marijuana, you’re not a criminal. Help me on this path to drug legalization so we stop fighting the wrong substances. Video Rating: / 5

Swaziland is a landlocked country sandwiched between South Africa and Mozambique. Despite Swaziland’s small size, it boasts more hectares of land dedicated to growing Cannabis than all of India. It is also home to Swazi Gold, the legendary sativa strain.
Hamilton Morris travels to Swaziland hoping to chemically analyze the cannabinoids present in some of the local strains. Instead, he finds a country steeped in political corruption and economic turmoil. Cannabis is viewed by many growers, users, and politicians as a drug that will cause insanity, but it may be Swaziland’s only hope for economic stability.

Three Phoenix police officers resigned on Thursday after two of them forced a teenager to eat a gram of marijuana during a Sept. 13 traffic stop, Phoenix police chief Joseph Yahner said at a press conference, according to Reuters. The police lieutenant who supervised the officers has also been demoted.
“The allegations against these former officers are compelling, appalling and extremely unprofessional,” Yahner reportedly said during a press conference. “Appropriate action has been taken.”
The three officers involved in the incident were Richard Pina, Jason McFadden and Michael Carnicle, and their supervisor was Jeff Farrior.

Myrtle Clarke and Jules Stobbs, also known as the Dagga Couple; have dedicated the last six years of their lives to a very important cause, the re-legalization of cannabis in South Africa. Finally the court dates are set and the end is in view. I talk to them about their campaign and the upcoming trail in August this year.
The Dagga Couple (a phrase coined by the South African press) are preparing a case to apply for the opportunity to ask some very simple questions in the highest court in South Africa, The Constitutional Court. How come this benign, useful, non toxic, non lethal plant has lead to the persecution of so many people, in so many countries, for so long?
