NEW LEGISLATION ON GROWING OF MARIJUANA IS BEING CHALLENGED IN COURTS ALLOWING CURRENT LICENSEES TO CONTINUE TO OPERATE LOCAL GROW-OPS

The Greater Sudbury Police Services, as is the case with many other police forces in other cities across Canada, are seeking more input into the implementation of the Controlled Drug and Substances Act which will issue licenses to people for the growing of marijuana for commercial shipping to licensed users. Their concerns are not with the use of the drug for medical purposes, but rather with other violations that may occur as a result of the drug being improperly used by people who are not licensed users. This is going to create a great deal of extra work for police and should be taken into consideration by the governing bodies when establishing future police services budgets.

There are many lawsuits under way challenging the legislation which was to have come into force on April 1, so those people who have current licenses to possess and grow marijuana may continue to do so until a decision on those cases is made in court.

The following link is a full article that was published in the Sudbury Star on this issue.
