NDP MP Murray Rankin is pushing for expungement of weed convicitons

The NDP Member of Parliament Murray Rankin is making the government’s last effort to pass a bill which would introduce expungement for certain cannabis convictions.

Once the federal government introduced its bill to legalize cannabis, the lawmakers decided that they would ultimately allow for pardons of non-violent cannabis-related crimes.

The lawmakers delivered on their promise to allow for pardons, and getting a pardon for your previous cannabis-related crimes is now easier than ever.

You can get a cannabis pardon now simply by applying for one online or getting a lawyer to request one from the government for you.

However, as Trina Fraser kindly explained, you could always get a pardon—so what’s the difference now?

Well, with cannabis being legal now, you can do that for free and without waiting for approval.

Expungement is on the docket

NDP Member of Parliament Murray Rankin introduced Bill C-415, a bill that if passed would expunge records of anyone who carries a criminal record for past minor, non-violent pot possession convictions.

This bill would wipe the records of anyone with minor, non-violent pot possession …

Cannabis shortages plague Canadian retailers; here’s how they’re responding

As the Canadian cannabis industry struggles to provide enough supply to meet exuberant demand since recreational use became legal, private retailers are faced with their own challenge: how to stay in business.

Many store owners in Alberta, Manitoba and Newfoundland have closed their doors as they await marijuana shipments, while others are considering different courses of action.

Provincial regulators, meanwhile, have taken their own measures to find equilibrium.

Immediate impact

“We were proactive from the get-go,” said Ryan Kaye, vice president of operations at Four20 Premium Market in Calgary. “We built bigger stores. We have larger cannabis vault rooms,” which means the company has more room to store more cannabis.

But not everyone is in the same boat.

On a rainy Friday in early November, about one-third of Alberta’s cannabis stores were closed or reporting supply shortages.

The problem is so overt that the Alberta regulatory agency has ceased licensing privately owned stores until the supply issue is resolved, which it says might be up to 18 months.

At Numo Cannabis in Edmonton, owner Daniel Nguyen feels bad when he …

Cannabis Meets Curling at Canada’s Inaugural ‘Bongspiel’

A Canadian curling league is set to embrace legalization this winter as it hosts what could be the country’s first-ever Bongspiel.

Hosted by the Wiarton & District Curling Club in the Ontario town best known for its prognosticating groundhog, the 420-friendly curling event will take place on Jan. 26.

Bongspiel co-convenor Ted Ratcliffe tells Leafly it’s an idea he and his friend Grant Nicholson had been mulling over for more than a year before finally deciding to do something about it.

“And really, the whole point is to raise money for our aging curling club,” Ratcliffe said.

Runners Share Which Cannabis Strains Help Them Go the Distance

The club, which opened in the ’60s, was a little shocked by the proposal at first, but while there were initial concerns about a potential conflict with their liquor license and the liability associated with people falling on the ice, they ultimately came on board. A bonspiel is, after all, a social curling tradition akin to a beer league.

The idea has been a hit. The event sold out almost instantly.
