Sensible Ontario Campaign Launch
Sensible Ontario launch!
The Ontario Cannabis Act (Bill 174) has been passed, but it’s not too late to have your say on the provincial government’s cannabis monopoly. While the LCBO has been tasked with rolling out the provincial government’s retail cannabis monopoly, there is a provincial election on the horizon, with municipal elections this fall across Ontario. Now is the time to take action, find out how you can get involved in Sensible Ontario!
With the Supreme Court currently ruling on alcohol monopolies, it could be that the Ontario Liberals plan could be dead on election day with new interprovincial trade regulations due by July 1st 2018. Also, the Attorney General of Ontario has tasked the Alcohol and Gaming Commission to draft regulations for consumption spaces. While the current Cannabis Act forbids cannabis consumers from using outside of their homes, the City of Toronto has also tasked the Chief Medical Officer of Health to review vapor lounges.
Everything is about to change, but we need your help to make it a reality. Sensible Ontario is a new campaign which aims to legalize both dispensaries and lounges in our province. Building on the momentum of Sensible BC we will be launching a grassroots campaign leading up to the Provincial and Municipal elections.
As we move into action, here are the top 3 things you can do right now to support our campaign goals:
1. Have your say
The Ontario government is taking feedback on both the Proposed places of use regulations under the Cannabis Act, 2017 (until March 5th) as well as the Proposed Regulations Relating to Cannabis Retail and Distribution (until February 7th).
Contact your MPP and MP to Save Dispensaries and Lounges!
All of your donations will go straight to the Ontario Cannabis Consumer & Retail Alliance, a registered non-profit society with diverse leadership which will be launching Sensible Ontario in 2018!
