Canadian pot growers say marijuana byproduct a wasted opportunity for industry

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Licensed marijuana producers in Canada are throwing out thousands of kilograms of plant waste each year in what some of them say is a missed opportunity to find other uses for the byproduct.
  • Health Canada’s destruction policy for producers makes it impossible to benefit or learn from the potentially valuable waste product, said Terry Lake, the vice-president of corporate social responsibility at Hydropothecary, a licensed producer in Gatineau, Que.
  • Shawn McDougall, production manager at BlissCo, a licensed producer in Langley, B.C., said the company mixes leftover stalks, stems and leaves into its food waste compost, and must report the amount dumped to Health Canada.
  • McDougall and Lake said most of the plant material underneath the flowered buds, such as leaves, stems, and stalks, all have negligible amounts of THC, the active chemical ingredient found in marijuana plants.
  • Lake said Health Canada is likely overwhelmed with the pending marijuana legislative changes, but it is onlya matter of time before the agency reverses its policies on the potential benefits to be found in byproducts from marijuana plants.

Senate could sit into summer to pass marijuana bills

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • The Trudeau government’s representative in the Senate says the chamber will extend its session into the summer if that’s what it takes to pass two new laws to regulate recreational cannabis use.
  • Sen. Peter Harder told CBC Radio’s The House he’s made it clear to his colleagues that bills C-45 and C-46 must be passed before the chamber breaks for the summer.
  • Currently, both the primarylegislation and the accompanying drug-impaired driving bill are before Senate committees.
  • Earlier this week, MP Bill Blair, the Liberal government’s point man on pot, said recreational cannabis use will become legal even if the impaired driving law gets hung up in the Senate.
  • The drug-impaired driving legislation has been in committee since December, while the main marijuanabill was referred to a Senate committee at the end of March after passing a 4429 vote.

Canada plans to legalize weed – but will those convicted of crimes get amnesty?

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • As Canada prepares to legalize marijuana this summer, politicians are facing growing calls to grant a blanket amnesty for people convicted under the existing drug laws many of whom belong to marginalized groups.
  • Since the prime minister, Justin Trudeau, was elected in 2015 on a manifesto promise to legalize cannabis, more than 15,000 people have been charged over marijuana-related offences joining close to 500,000 Canadians with marijuana convictions on their criminal record.
  • Last week, the Campaign for Cannabis Amnesty launched a petition asking the government to consider pardons for possession charges.
  • Robyn Maynard, author of Policing Black Lives, said: White and black communities use cannabis and other drugs at similar rates, but black communities have been disproportionately targeted for police stops, cannabis arrests and incarceration.
  • Currently, people with criminal records are unable to work in the burgeoning cannabis industry, a policy that hits heavily policed communities especially hard, said Maynard and Owusu-Bempah.
