In the event you thought that the federal authorities’s impending rules for cannabis edibles (just like the 10 mg THC restrict per bundle) have been dangerous sufficient, that’s received nothing on what Quebec plans to do. 

As certainly one of Canada’s extra anti- cannabis provinces, Quebec is now planning to ban edibles like cannabis-infused candies, jujubes, candies, confections, and desserts- all below the guise of creating edibles as unappealing to kids as attainable.

However that begs the question- the place do you draw the road on what’s interesting to children or not? Since kids aren’t the one ones that benefit from the kinds of merchandise being banned. I imply, who doesn’t like sweet and chocolate? This identical line of considering is what received menthol and different flavoured cigarettes banned in Canada a few years in the past. Following that logic, shouldn’t fruity and candy alcoholic drinks be banned additionally? In spite of everything, should you drink an excessive amount of of these, they may really kill you- not like cannabis edibles.

That may make you marvel if all the edibles in Quebec be required to be flavourless slop? Can’t make them too tasty, or children may like them! Maybe Quebec will take a web page out of “Bertie Bott’s Each Flavour Beans” from Harry Potter, besides on this case, each single edible shall be disgustingly flavoured, like earwax, booger, grime, rotten egg, cleaning soap, vomit, and even worse! Then once more, that is perhaps banned too since jelly beans can undoubtedly attraction to children.

As reported by the Canadian Press, “whether or not an edible cannabis product is fairly thought of to be interesting to children would rely on varied components together with its form, color, flavour, scent and the way it’s packaged, [according to] a federal authorities official final month.”

Quebec’s rules additionally ban using meals components that would alter the style, aroma, and color of cannabis edibles. Whereas lots of people love the flavour and scent of cannabis, the prospect of getting solely cannabis-flavoured edibles are one other challenge altogether. No matter occurred to client selection and product selection?

On the finish of the day, the federal government says that it needs to gather that candy tax cash, take a dent out of the black market, and maintain kids protected (though you’d assume the duty of that ought to largely fall on the dad and mom, proper?)- and their answer is creating authorized merchandise that attraction to no person.

What sort of logic is that?!
