It’s the dawn of a new era, but for some, it’s the re-legalization of a powerful plant. Either way, there is a reason to celebrate!
As the fall breeze rolls in, and the maple leaves turn, so turns the laws on cannabis. It seems almost strange that it has finally come. Canadian legalization is actually here. It does come with some confusing rules and regulations and it certainly is not perfect. But it has certainly put Canada on the map. Once known for snowy winters, hockey, and a good looking Prime Minister is now known as the first G7 Country to legalize weed.
Canadian Legalization – STARTS TODAY!
From each province to each territory, rules are different but overall cannabis is officially legal. There are a lot of reasons to celebrate this new green leap. Many are really excited about the idea of being able to grow at home, others are excited about having the freedom to smoke without a medical license. In addition, everyone seems to be excited about trying the product for the first time or again!
Companies, brands and communities have been tirelessly working to create both medical and recreational brands that will suit the needs of people. And despite the never-ending hard work, many are ready to stay up all night and smoke a puff in celebration.
We Thank You
In light of this new horizon, Puff Digital wants to thank you for being apart of this. For being apart of a community who wanted to be educated whether you believe in cannabis or not. Canadian legalization is a monumental step for medical patients and possibly a leisure tool that can change the future of a drug crisis. While things in the law are not perfect, there are many working towards making it better educated, supported and fairer for minorities and indigenous communities.
We will continue to provide the stories that are trending, the stories that are fun and most importantly the stories that are needing to be told. Puff Puff Post will be highlighting the power of the female as legalization hits. Not only the female cannabis plant but the women running the businesses, the women nurturing the homes and the women empowering communities.
It is just amazing. After all this time. All all the fights for peoples rights. It is happening. There is a ton of more work to be done within the government laws and the community won’t stop to make it well rounded for everyone. Puff Puff Post thanks you for staying engaged on our website, social media and at conferences. Thank you for being active with us, growing with us, and being apart of the push towards legalization – even if in a small way.
