Why You Still Might Get Busted No Matter How Long You Wait to Drive After Using Cannabis

Why you still might get busted no matter how long you wait to drive after using cannabis Our federal lawmakers continue to adhere to faulty science on roadside drug testing because it’s easier to quell the concerns of the anti-marijuana lobby than admit we don't have a way of catching marijuana-impaired drivers BY IAN CAREY Medioimages/Photodisc The notion that only recently consumed cannabis can be seen on drug tests has been called into question by newer studies.

Comedy Film ‘Canadian Strain’ Tackles Country’s Cannabis Legalization

A comedy about Canada's upcoming cannabis legalization is headed for the big screen. Canadian company We'll Be Over Here Productions Inc., says production has begun in Toronto on the feature film "Canadian Strain." Written and directed by Geordie Sabbagh, the film stars Jessica Salgueiro as a boutique weed dealer who has been put out of business by the legalization of cannabis. Salgueiro hails from Winnipeg and is being featured at this year's Toronto International Film Festival as a Rising Star. Colin Mochrie plays her dad and Naomi Snieckus plays her uptight retail co-worker. Thousands are expected to attend the 4-20 marijuana smoke-in at Vancouver's Sunset Beach Friday, and while the legalization goal of the annual Weed Day will soon be met, an event organizer says there is much more to protest.
