The proposed regulatory amendments would allow consumers to possess 17.1 litres of beverages, up from 2.1 litres.

Last week, Health Canada opened a consultation regarding amendments to the federal cannabis regulations, including facilitating non-therapeutic research on cannabis involving human participants and boosting the public possession limits for infused drinks.

The consultation is open for input until Apr. 25.

Currently, Canadians are limited to purchasing the equivalent of 2.1 litres of beverages at a time, despite the 10 milligram THC cap per product. Under the proposed amendments, Canadians would be able to purchase up to 17.1 litres of beverages at once.


Cannabis concerns for community

After finally issuing its first cultivation license last December, the Kahnawake Cannabis Control Board (KCCB) continues to move along in its day-to-day operations with the ultimate goal of opening the industry to the general public.

But it’s been a struggle, to say the least, especially on the political side of things. Discussions between Kahnawake and Quebec are ongoing, but an agreement has not been reached.

Mohawk Council of Kahnawake (MCK) chief and Cannabis Portfolio lead Tonya Perron said that she still needs to update Council on some of the issues that remain and were brought up during a meeting with the province two weeks ago.

“The discussions are specific to cannabis because the main concern is always public health and public safety,” said Perron.

Paralympian pivot: Snowboarder Tyler Mosher now 'slugging it out' on the cannabis trail


In his mid-40s, Mosher got an Executive MBA and went into CBD. There's only one problem: market regulation

Buy a new pickup truck, run a marathon, transform the family basement into a man cave, express a sudden interest in personal fashion, daydream about being taller, younger and more handsome. Such are the clichéd male musings as he wrestles through midlife, a period of self-reflection capable of spurring some to action and others to simply grumble about how it sucks to get old.

Tyler Mosher isn’t much of a complainer, although it would be understandable if he were, given he relies on a $2 plastic catheter to get the deed done every time he goes to the washroom.

The cannabis car may never have hit the road officially, but its approach to reducing the carbon footprint still holds promise.

Using carbon-negative fibre — of which hemp is the primary ingredient — would prevent two tons of carbon dioxide “from being dumped into our atmosphere,” the company website claimed.
