In April 2017, the Government of Canada introduced the Cannabis Act & amendments to the Criminal Code to address cannabis impaired driving with plans to make non-medical cannabis legal in Canada by July 2018.
In addition, the federal government plans to move as quickly as possible to bring into force the amendments related to drug-impaired driving.
While the proposed Cannabis Act provides for the federal government to regulate commercial production, provinces and territories will have authority to regulate certain aspects like distribution, retail and a range of other matters – as they do for tobacco and liquor. For example, B.C. will determine how and where cannabis can be sold and where it can be consumed in our province.
To be ready in time for July 2018, we want to hear from you about how we can implement this in a responsible way.
We are asking for your thoughts on the topics like minimum age, personal possession limits, public consumption, drug-impaired driving, personal cultivation and distribution and retail models. All of these changes will require careful thought to ensure the right balance is struck for moving forward. These changes are happening across Canada, and we want you to help shape the way it is going to happen here in B.C

Wow has it really been 46 days since I started taking Phoenix Tears & CBD tincture twice daily…..time has just flown by.
Ok so like I have mentioned in my other updates, I’m still not getting physically ill when I’m stressed.
I spent an entire week outside of Nelson, B.C house sitting for my Dad while is fighting forest fires & my Uncles were on a fishing trip. Thankfully my younger sister came on the trip with me so we spit the chores in half. We had to take care of chickens & a bunch of small gardens twice a day. On top of that we had to walk from my Dad/Uncles place to the hotel we were staying in, which is about a block & a half away.
I had really bad anxiety the entire trip, it didn’t feel right & I just wanted to be back home with my fiance. I realized that I have been like that since I was a little girl, I would have a hard time at sleepovers or ask to get picked up because I wanted to be back at home.
Anyways, so despite that week of bad anxiety & some stresses because it was a bit of a gong show with instructions, I was able to get through it with minimal issues. There were only two mornings where I wasn’t able to get up in the morning to do chores but I always was able to bounce back & able to eat food & do the chores evening.
I’m just super excited that stress is no longer making me physically ill & limiting what I can do.
