Health Canada probe into CannTrust could lead into uncharted legal territory: experts

An investigation by the Ontario Securities Commission may be the latest ordeal facing CannTrust Holdings Inc., but it isn’t the only probe the embattled cannabis producer has to worry about.

Health Canada’s investigation into the company’s unlicensed cannabis growing remains ongoing, and has the potential to enter unprecedented legal territory, according to a number of Canadian cannabis law experts following the case.

“We’re in uncharted territory,” said Trina Fraser, a cannabis lawyer with Brazeau Seller Law, in reference to the Health Canada probe. “The potential for people to go to jail certainly exists. The potential for significant fines to be levied certainly exists.”

Medical cannabis debate: Australians left in pain by expensive and limited access to drug

It’s the world’s most controversial plant - cannabis. As more and more countries across the planet make it legal for both medical and recreational use, is Australia being left behind?

Medicinal cannabis was partially legalised in Australia for a limited number of illnesses in November 2016. But it’s very expensive, and only available to a fraction of the patients who potentially need it.

"As someone who was very against it, I would say that medicinal cannabis has not only saved my life, but it's given me life again," Ben Oakley tells Pete Evans.

Medical cannabis and the patient experience in the UK

It’s the most socially disruptive phenomenon of the new millennium – medical cannabis is sweeping the planet and patient experience could possibly be improving.

Progressive-minded nations all over the world are recognising its efficacy in treating a broad diverse array of ailments and improving patient experience. In fact, over 30 countries now have medical cannabis laws or strict guidelines for the use of cannabis-derived pharmaceuticals. And in the US, it’s helping to win the war against opioid addiction because it’s proving to be a non-toxic, non-addictive substitute drug for chronic pain.

Cannabis in the UK: Your views on making it legal

People have been debating whether to legalise cannabis in the UK for decades, and the response from government has always been no, so far.

Last year the law changed when it came to some medical use of the drug.

A group of MPs recently visited Canada - where recreational cannabis was made legal in October - and told Radio 1 Newsbeat they think the UK will legalise the drug within 10 years.

Our documentary, Legalising Weed: Canada's Story, came out this week - and since then you've been telling us what you think about making cannabis legal in the UK.

New Coast Guard Order bans active members from entering cannabis dispensaries

States with legal recreational and/or medical marijuana make up a sizable portion of the U.S. coastline. But the servicewomen and men tasked with safeguarding those coasts won’t be able to take advantage of the change in policy and public attitudes on cannabis. That’s because on July 30, the United States Coast Guard issued an order banning active service members from entering cannabis dispensaries. But that’s only the beginning.
