There are limited legislation and regulations in regards to the commercial use of cannabis within the food and beverage industry;
The $8.16 billion dollar cannabis industry could expand and create entirely new job opportunities across Canada, growing the economy;
Making it possible to provide a safe environment for those who wish to enjoy a vast variety of cannabis consumables;
Allowing the government to regulate this new industry by regulating the quality of products, ensuring the best possible safety regulations and standards are in place, benefiting consumers;
Allowing those struggling with medical health issues that use cannabis to assist with their conditions in a broader market spectrum, and keep the financial gains out of the pockets of criminals, from the illegal sales of edible cannabis;
The regulation of a public cannabis consumption market in restaurants and cafés would make it more difficult for youth to obtain illegal infused cannabis consumables, potentially containing higher or dangerous levels of cannabis;
Helping those that consume cannabis for medical (Crohn's, cancer, Alzheimer's, epilepsy, Parkinson's, chronic pain, MS, AIDS, and many more) and recreational purposes to do so as safely as possible; and
There are overall health benefits.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to:
1) Amend legislation to permit the cooking, sale and consumption of cannabis infused consumables at restaurants and cafés;
2) Regulate safety protocols and steps into operating a cannabis infused business, including chefs that have attended a cannabis culinary school and implementing limitations of CBD and THC used per consumable item sold; and
3) Educate the public in regards to the consumption of edible cannabis.
