We are uniquely positioned to address the Federal Government’s Cannabis Task Force recommendations and needs analysis findings to provide evidenced based knowledge and consultancy for all levels of government within Canada and globally.
Following the Ontario provincial government’s announcement of a framework for legal cannabis sales and use, International Cannabis Solutions Incorporated would like to offer the following statements:
We applaud the Ontario governments recognition of the time sensitive nature of this initiative and their commitment to meet the Canadian Federal Governments time line for legalization of Cannabis in Canada July, 1st, 2018
Keeping the age at which an individual can legally obtain cannabis at 19 (i.e. in line with alcohol purchase) is a prudent move. First, it reduces the risk of co-ingestion also it creates a preventive framework for youth. Protecting the developing brains of our next generation (our youth) is imperative.
We are encouraged by the Ontario government’s commitment to education, as it is necessary not only to mitigate risk, but also to educate the general public on the features, benefits and responsible use associated with cannabis to make informed decisions. Educational programming should ‘evidenced based’ where possible at all times.
