Canada Legalises Recreational Cannabis

Canada today became the second country to legalise the possession and use of cannabis for recreational purposes, Uruguay was the first.  The bill passed in June is now law, those over 18 years-of-age will be allowed to carry and share up to 30 grams of cannabis.  People are now able to grow four plants at home for personal use.  The Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government is fulfilling an election promise by allowing this change,  they are also working on a fast-track process to allow people who have been convicted of possession to apply for legal pardon.  The number of Canadians with existing criminal records of possession is at 50,000.  Canadians queue overnight just to be able to purchase the cannabis.  The use of cannabis for medicinal purposes in Canada has been possible since 2001.

A retired midwife who enjoyed a satisfying career after years of rejecting it as a career choice. After becoming a Mum for the second time, somehow I just could not resist the call to midwifery any longer. Being part a family's important event gave more insight into how women, me included, both manage and sometimes muddle through pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood. Wisdom shared and gleaned from stories as well as healthy lifestyle tips and healthy recipes will hopefully answer your need. Someone once said to me that we have one body, one life, one voice so why not make it count. So here's to looking after all three and making a difference. Enjoy and I welcome any comments.
