You say you want to help our youth stay away from drugs but you force them on the street by implementing harsher penalties. Nearly two-thirds of Canada’s population is in favor of decriminalizing marijuana. Should the requests of the majority of Canadians be considered, or should the requests of the few outweigh the majority? One of the most important pro decriminalization arguments would be the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. A number of studies show that Marijuana has been extremely effective for treating many serious and painful medical conditions for example, cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, epilepsy, seizures, schizophrenia, and eating disorders.
The Canadian Security Intelligence Service, also known as the CSIS, is a service which investigates threats to the country. Along with investigating threats to the country, the service analyzes information and produces intelligence to the government of Canada, to protect the country and its citizens. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service is proactive and pre-emptive; this means that the service works prior to potential attacks and threats to the country in an attempt to stop them before they occur. One way the organization works, in efforts to protect its country is by their elite security screening program. Through this program CSIS is able to prevent those who are not Canadian, who may potentially pose a threat to the county from entering
For instance, determining, preventing, and mitigating the levels of polluting contaminants in Canadian waters is a major regulation issue (Environment Canada, 2012). Under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act has allowed government bodies to regulate the presence of substances with deleterious environmental effects e.g. the phosphate found in laundry detergents (Environment Canada, 2012). Furthermore, the Canada-Ontario Agreement of 2002 (a broad law) envisages creating a respectable and sustainable usage and regulation of the Great Lakes and their Ecosystem, which are a vital Canadian water source (Fitzgibbon & Bruce,

This is because the companies have realized the benefits that can come from a drug-free workplace. Drug use can cause and have many negative effects in the workplace. Some of these things would be missed work, undependability, low productivity, and even violence in some cases. So, if they want to have a positive productive running company, a drug-free workplace must be
The best way I believe to reform this is put the government in change of selling them or assigning places to sell them, like the example I used in the liquor stores. I would want the profits to go towards preventing addiction drug centers. I would also end mandatory minimum sentences for minor non-violent drug offenses, while decriminalizing marijuana. How can we live in a free society when people are only allowed to choice the government sanctioned option? Free people would be able to live as free
Section 241 (b) is unjust because it not only leads to prosecution for acts of compassion; it is cruel because it presents a major social obstacle to allowing mercy to very ill and suffering people. The Harper government has argued that Criminal Code provisions prohibiting doctors, or anyone else, from assisting in suicide are “constitutionally valid.” However, Canada’s policy on euthanasia is beginning to change. Quebec passed Bill 52, which allows for euthanasia, in early June of this year, by a 94-22 vote. It doesn’t come into effect until 2015, to give the government and doctors time to get the required policies and infrastructure in place. The bill allows Quebecers to have medical help to die, as long as they have “an incurable serious illness” and an advanced, irreversible decline in their abilities, and are at the end of their life.
Harm reduction and the Saskatchewan model both recognize addiction as a disease while the moral model states that addiction is merely a defect of character and will. The Saskatchewan recovery model supports many different clinical principals. It defines recovery as establishing/re-establishing patterns for healthy living. Recovery is an individual process; therefore it presents a particular challenge for recovery services to adapt to the specific needs of each client. (Miller,
The drugs would also be more potent and less contaminated. “Wherever an operation is shut down, a new one is opened up.” He concludes that if efforts could succeed in significantly reducing either the supply of drugs or the demand for them, we would not need to seek change in policy (Is curbing a rising population of users not a success??). He says that due to our repeated failures, there is need for some a change. It seems that based on Nadelman’s perspective, he would argue for the legalization of cognitive enhancing drugs as well as illicit drugs. William Bennett has other
It was not written to scare readers but to make them aware of the possibilities they have and what is important to be done to decrease the possibility of catching such diseases. Dr. Nastasha Crowfort, director of surveillance and epidemiology at the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion, releasing various information on such diseases, emphasizes on how important it is for the public to be aware of their health. This study allow for the public health officials to be aware of these infections and introduce ideas and program that will decrease these
