The Current State of Legal Cannabis in British Columbia

As of October 17, 2018, cannabis became legal in Canada, and it is important for people know where it stands and how they can safely deal with this when it comes to children and teens and the abuse of legal substances such as marijuana and alcohol. The province of British Columbia has made many decisions regarding the regulatory framework surrounding legal cannabis. Non-medical cannabis became legal, and the province of British Columbia is taking an approach with public health and safety top of mind.

The Cannabis Control and Licensing Act are what the province is using to help safeguard children and youth, promoting health and safety and working to keep the criminal element disconnected from cannabis. This act also works to protect B.C. roads by ensuring people are driving while using marijuana and helping people who may become addicted to the drug. Within the province, the legal age to purchase and consume cannabis is 19, and it does prohibit the use of cannabis anywhere where tobacco cannot be used and also prohibits the use of cannabis in vehicles. The act has strengthened enforcement regarding driving under the influence, and hefty fines will happen when people violate certain rules connected to the consumption of cannabis.

Cannabis in British Columbia will be sold through privately run retail stores, and government-operated retail stores online. The BC Liquor Distribution Branch will directly operate the retail stores, and the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch will provide the licensing for private stores. Drug prevention and education are still a major part in with helping people avoid consuming drug’s and alcohol and abusing legal drugs such as marijuana and alcohol. Much of the prevention and education in the province are geared towards youth and teens and also preventing people from driving while intoxicated. Stiffening the impaired driving laws in British Columbia is one extra step in ensuring a person’s life is not destroyed because of impaired driving with marijuana.

What is Cannabis and how does legalization affect me in British Columbia?

Cannabis is a plant that is used for its effects on the mind and body, and has a long history for recreational use, and recently within many years for medical use. The cannabis plant produces flowers and leaves that are used in various ways to induce euphoria, relaxation, a sense of well-being, and heightened sensory experiences. One of the primary chemicals in cannabis that causes these effects is tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, which is why the drug is used recreationally and for medical reasons. Cannabis is consumed in many different ways such as smoking it, through vaping, eating it, and drinking it.

Legalization of marijuana in British Columbia has made it accessible for people of age to legally purchase it and consume it. Legal marijuana is another substance that can be legally consumed, which can potentially change how people become addicted to certain substances or how these substances are abused. Legal marijuana changes how people access the drug, but it is still quite easy to become addicted to and abuse marijuana. When marijuana is used to cope with physical and psychological problems, it will lead to a dependency, and most addict’s British Columbia use marijuana in combination with other drugs such as alcohol, cocaine, club drugs, and crystal meth.

There are many different strains of cannabis, which come from two major types of plants that include sativa and Indica, and a hybrid that is a mix of sativa and Indica. The use of marijuana impacts many areas of the brain, such as the area that governs motor skills, emotion and learning, and marijuana is used for medical reasons because it controls pain sensation and vomiting reflex. It is important for parents who live in British Columbia to speak to their children about marijuana, and how it will impact their lives now that it is legal. Like alcohol, adults will choose to use this drug for whatever reason, and just like alcohol it is important for young people and teens to understand the dangers associated with using marijuana and taking it in excess or mixing it with other drugs such as alcohol. Prevention and awareness are important to lessen the impact that marijuana will have on a young person’s life in British Columbia.

Can a marijuana addiction be treated in British Columbia?

An addiction to marijuana is often part of a larger drug problem because the drug is so often used in combination with other substances such as alcohol, cocaine, and various club drugs. An addiction can be treated in many different ways, and within the province of British Columbia are numerous private drug treatment centers, because of the remote wilderness locations and mountain surroundings that the province provides. When someone is struggling with an addiction in the province, it is important to reach out to local treatment resources, and the Ministry of Health in British Columbia also provides access to certain provincial resources that can help people who are addicted to drugs such as marijuana. Many people in the province of British Columbia struggle with addiction and marijuana have always been a major part of life in British Columbia, and now that the substance is legal it is important for people to be aware of the risks like any other legal substance in the province.

Ask a Professional

  • What is cannabis (marijuana)?

    Cannabis or marijuana refers to the dried flowers, leaves, stems, and seeds of the cannabis plant. There are over 100 different compounds in these plants, which include THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC is a psychoactive substance that alters your state of mind.

  • How is marijuana used?

    Marijuana is used in a number of different ways. Generally, it is smoked as a joint in blunts, bongs, vaporizers, or pipes. Electronic vaporizers are the most common method among youth who use marijuana. Marijuana can also be extracted to make oils and concentrates that can be vaped or inhaled. Smoking these oils is known as dabbing.

  • Why does marijuana affect people differently?

    There are several factors that determine how marijuana can affect a person. Initially, it is the individual’s experience with the drug, their biology, sex, how the drug was taken, and how much was used. In addition, it depends on how often the drug was used and if it was used in combination with other substances.

  • Can a person become addicted to marijuana?

    Yes, cannabis with TCH does cause addiction and dependence. Someone who is addicted to marijuana struggles to stop taking the drug and does experience withdrawal symptoms. Individuals who begin to use marijuana before the age of 18 are increasing their risk of marijuana addiction. More people are using marijuana daily, and the potency of the drug has increased significantly.

  • How do you treat marijuana addiction?

    Marijuana addiction is treated with detox to manage the mild withdrawal symptoms. Although detox is not always needed because withdrawal symptoms are not severe. Following detox, rehabilitation may include outpatient or residential treatment followed by aftercare support.
