The Cannabis Community’s “Not Done Yet Report Card” Gives Legalization  a “D”

In support of the historic third anniversary of the legalization of  adult-use cannabis, the Cannabis Council of Canada (C3), the national organization of Canada’s  licensed producers and processors, Cannabis Amnesty, Medical Cannabis Canada* (MCC), and  NORML are releasing the “Not Done Yet Report Card.”

The “Not Done Yet Report Card” is an evaluation of cannabis legalization’s successes and  challenges based on government objectives, industry outcomes, and cannabis community  expectations. Topics covered include keeping cannabis out of the hands of youth, eliminating the  illicit market, social justice and equity, access to medical cannabis, and industry viability. The  choice of topics featured in the Report Card sends a signal to governments that the work of  legalization is “Not Done Yet.”

“Canadian cannabis legalization will not be successful until  it includes true cannabis justice,” Akwasi  Owusu-Bempah, Director of  Research for Cannabis Amnesty, “Those harmed by the  cannabis prohibition deserve a clean slate and the  opportunity to participate fully our new industry. While  Cannabis Amnesty celebrates the anniversary of  legalization, we recognize that we have a long way to go  achieve cannabis justice.

George Smitherman, President and CEO of Cannabis Council of Canada, commented, “In celebration of the third anniversary of Canada’s historic leadership, we are calling upon  governments to come together with renewed energy and adopt the reforms needed to fulfill the  health, social and economic promise of cannabis legalization.”

The report card is available online at www.cannabis-council.ca.
