Good on Alberta’s Justice Minister, Kathleen Ganley, for going to Colorado to see how they handled the legalization of marijuana.
There was such a rush to Colorado when the legal weed first appeared, that some stores ran out of product the first day.
That’s a lot of people grazing in the grass, and how many of them were driving?
One of the things we will have to face in Alberta, maybe next year, is finding the right roadside test to see if a driver is impaired.
Various techniques, some using saliva are still being evaluated. Blood tests would have defense lawyers screaming.
I don’t know if Denver mentioned to Minister Ganley about the marijuana by-products, like hash oil, a cannabis extract.
People have been injured in explosions caused by the butane gas they were using to make it.
The Denver Post reported a while back how burn victims were charged for making hash oil after blowing the windows out of a house.
You know how backed up our court system is already.
There are many other lessons to learn from Colorado, like what to do with all that tax money.
Let me know where you think it would be best spent.
