Pardon Me: Why cannabis convictions must be expunged, not pardoned, for true amnesty

Now that cannabis is legal, where does it leave Canadians with criminal records for past pot convictions? Early on the morning of legalization, October 17, 2018, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale held a press conference to answer that very question. In his address, Goodale confirmed that the Liberal government will introduce legislation to allow Canadians […]

Cannabis Legalization Day in Canada: Leafly’s Live Coverage

And there was more good news for pot aficionados: Hours before a handful of retail outlets opened in the country’s easternmost province a federal official told The Associated Press that Canada will pardon all those with convictions for possessing up to 30 grams of marijuana, the now-legal threshold.

A formal announcement was planned for later Wednesday. The official, who was not authorized to speak public ahead of the announcement, said those who want to take advantage of the pardons will have to apply.

Canada has had legal medical marijuana since 2001 and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government has spent two years working toward expanding that to include so-called recreational marijuana. The goal is to better reflect society’s changing opinion about marijuana and bring illicit operators into a regulated system.

Tom Clarke, an illegal cannabis dealer for three decades, was among the first to make a legal sale in

RCMP is raiding cannabis stores left and right across Canada

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police is raiding and closing illegal cannabis stores just like it did before legalization.

Just because we can buy weed with our credit cards now doesn’t mean that things are that much different.

This change was definitely a change for the better, however, many Canadians are extremely unhappy with the way the federal government and the provinces are handling the situation.

This is partly due to the lack of preparation time that the provinces had.

The provincial leaders warned that this might happen. The federal government rushed too much to prepare everything needed for legalization by October 17th.

We all knew that the end result of all that rushing won’t be pretty, but we went with it anyway.

Now we are facing a lackluster shipping system, high prices, and an under-educated police force.
