Popular YouTuber Philip DeFranco breaks down cannabis legalization for Americans

When Canada officially legalized recreational cannabis exactly two weeks ago, Canadians were engaged in some serious navel-gazing over the effects and ramifications the Cannabis Act would have on their lives. But at the same time we were trying to figure out what exactly the cannabis rules were for the province or territory we live in […]

Asian countries warn their citizens of smoking cannabis in Canada

Asian countries are aggressively warning their citizens not to smoke recreational cannabis on their trips to Canada as that might land them a ticket to jail when they land back home.

About a week ago South Korea prompted their citizens not to consume cannabis abroad as they might be put in jail upon their return. Now two more Asian countries are threatening their citizens in the same manner.

The two countries in question are Japan and China, both of which are known for traditionally having tough cannabis regulation and prohibition laws.

To be more precise, China didn’t threaten incarceration, but they did advise their citizens, students in particular, “to avoid contact with and use of marijuana for the sake of ensuring your own physical and mental health.”

Official warnings

These warnings appeared on the websites of the Chinese consulate in Toronto and Japanese consulate in Vancouver.

The South Korean embassy in Canada tweeted the following to their citizens:

“Even in a place where marijuana is legalized, if our citizens smoke, purchase, possess or deliver marijuana, it’s a criminal act,

Marijuana is Legal! And with legality comes great responsibility.

AS  you’ve likely realized, marijuana is legal! (For most Americans, at least.) California is beginning to settle into its first set of regulations, and an adult-use Michigan is looking like a sure thing. So, now what?

Now, I’d argue, it’s time to rewrite the rules of engagement surrounding cannabis use.
With legal weed comes infinitely more knowledge, and with that knowledge comes tremendous responsibility—and it’s a responsibility we all share, a mutual respect we owe to one another as we enjoy infused meals together and Pepsi-challenge each other’s vaporizers.

Before these regulated marketplaces gave us a retail infrastructure, multiple levels of consumer protection, and more substantive information about the cannabis we’re consuming, we rarely knew exactly what we were ingesting. While a select few grew their own, tracking all the nutrients and pesticides used in the cultivation process, most of us “got it from a guy”—a scenario I relived recently while strolling Pusher Street, Christiania’s world-famous hash market in the middle of Copenhagen, Denmark.
