Again a new focus.
A steady stream of people are still signing up for medical cards , which adds to a large number to start with. Even with a few people dropping out of the programs, you are getting a knowledge base that is growing at a compound rate. Eventually an overwhelming majority will be converted over because the evidence will be standing in front of them; healthy mothers,fathers and/or seniors still able to get around under their own steam. My focus is looking at that day when cannabis is commonplace and tolerated. Even our Prime Minister's neighbourhood is not immune to cannabis. They just did a big bust out that way. The smart thing to do since it is everywhere and it is not going to go away and it helps people is to tax and regulate it. Make is legal for everyone (under the age of majority with a doctor's script so those autistic children can also benefit from a safe medicine that can be eaten). I would have a set up like alcohol. You can buy cases of wine and cases of boose(with a permit, like for a wedding) and cases of beer, or you can buy it by the bottle. The next level is having a glass of wine or a beer at a local pub or resturant and the final level is the guy who has a couple of barrels of wine in his basement or a beer brewing kit. It is legal to make your own wine. It should be legal to grow your own medicine or is some cases a sacrement(some people use it for religious purposes). You could have coffeshops set up and/or allow resturants and pubs to have cannabis products available. At the top level you would have shops like the LCBO but it would be the CCBO. There will be different grades and types at different prices, just like you would see at a dispensary in California. I can buy a cheap bottle of wine for about 10 bucks or I can get a fine champange for 100 bucks. It would be my choice. In a sensible society, that would already be in place. The change is coming and the movement is gaining momentum. I can't wait.
