https://you.leadnow.ca/petitions/place-a-cap-on-the-potency-of-marijuana-edible-products

This is a petition we started to draw attention to the lack of concern for high potency THC products. Canada will move to implement new regualtions for 

THC marijuana edibles in 2019.  There must be caps placed on potency. It is not possible to pull back the move to legalize edible marijuana products under this 

current government but limits must be supported to protect the public from high potency products that pose especially high risks of harm to health, both 

physical and mental. THC is fat soluble and accumulates in the body - high potency is far too dangers to allow to be sold on the consumer market. 

Please sign the petition today. Thank you

What to Tell Children about Cannabis/Marijuana - a consolidation of facts from Alex Berenson’s book, Tell Your Children: The Truth about Marijuana, Mental illness, and Violence, Published January 2019. Compiled by Dr. Kathryn E. Patten, Ph. D. Neuroscience and Neuropsychology of Emotion

• Consuming marijuana (MJ) with THC causes a relaxed haze, but for teens whose brains are still developing, it has more serious effects

• THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) affects brain regions for motivation, emotion and memory formation and seriously affects learning

• Cannabis disinhibits users and increases violent behaviour in teens

• THC concentrations in street MJ have risen: from 2% in 1969 to 25% in 2017

• Consuming cannabis before the brain is mature, at 24 years old, can cause permanent
brain damage because the brain is still forming and has not completed developing

• Cannabis consumption by teens can cause depression, suicidal feelings, decreases in IQ, memory loss, and even psychosis

• The more you consume, the more likely you are to experience psychosis

• The younger the consumption begins, the more likely and more severe the psychosis

• The germination for psychosis is from 6-8 years from use onset

• Scientific studies reveal that students who use MJ regularly are 3 times as likely to be violent than non-users

• Smoking MJ only 10 times raises the risk of developing psychosis 2.3 times that of non-smokers

• The areas of the brain that have the most receptors for THC are the amygdalae (evokes many body/brain functions) and
the hippocampus (responsible for creating and storing memory)

• The US and Canada have the highest cannabis usage rates in the world

• Unlike normal psychoses, MJ caused psychoses do not respond to antipsychotic drug treatment

• Use of MJ before age 17 years: 4 times as likely to develop addiction to opiate drugs

• 2017 National Academy of Medicine: Cannabis use in teens is highly associated with a) neurotoxicity and b) precipitated psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia
and bi-polar disorder, later in life
