  • Robinson said his store on 124th Street and 103rd Avenue will be the first of five he expects to open within the next year in Alberta, if the federal government legalizes cannabis by the end of the summer.
  • Robinson’s application for a cannabis licence is one of more than 480 applications received by the AGLC since March 6.
  • The AGLC is responsible for the oversight and all distribution of cannabis to retailers, so anyone who wants to open a store in Alberta that sells cannabis products must get a licence with them.
  • Business licences for cannabis retailers will not be valid until cannabis is legalized, and the cost of one could be as high as $2,500 a year that’s 10 times more than a liquor store.
  • Finally, anyone working in a retail cannabis store will need to take theAGLC’sonline SellSafeCannabis Staff Trainingprogram.

  • A group of Toronto lawyers, activists and entrepreneurs launched a petition Friday calling on the federal government to grant amnesty to people convicted of simple cannabis possession charges.
  • If the federal government is going to legalize cannabis, then it doesn’t make any sense for these convictions to stay on people’srecords, said criminal defence lawyer Annamaria Enenajor,the director of the Campaign for Cannabis Amnesty.
  • A May 2017 public opinion poll conducted by The Globe and Mail and Nanos Research found that 62 per cent of Canadians support, or somewhat support, the idea of issuing pardons to those with criminal records for possession.
  • The campaign will also collectvideo statements and testimonials from people whose lives have been negatively affected by possession charges to put a face to the harm that the prohibition of cannabis has caused.
  • She points to the prime minister’s recent apology to LGBTCanadians and theproposal of Bill C-66, which would createa procedure for expunging the criminal records of people convicted for offences targeting homosexuals.
