Health Canada’s unveiled a consultation paper with a number of proposed cannabis regulations – including mandatory warnings on all products – like those that appear on tobacco.
The regulations are now up for public consultation for the next 60 days – and include a proposal for the development of health warning messages which include risks associated with cannabis use during pregnancy – as well as the dangers of impaired driving – and dangers of combining cannabis with other substances, including alcohol.
Statistics Canada also says it plans to start measuring the economic and social impacts of recreational pot – even before Canada legalizes it next July.
The federal agency says it wants to gradually develop its ability to capture and report information on non-medical cannabis – before it becomes legal.
