vancouver bc medical marijuanaLast month the City of Toronto raided dozens of medical marijuana dispensaries. Yesterday the City of Vancouver filed injunctions to try to shut down several medical marijuana dispensaries operating in the city. Below is a news release that was put out by the City of Vancouver:

Since April 29, 31 medical-marijuana related use (MMRU) retail stores operating in non-zone compliant locations have complied with City instructions to close. Fifty-five stores continue to operate, contrary to closure instructions, and continue to face enforcement actions.

Enforcement update

On May 31, injunctions were filed to compel closure of 17 of the 55 MMRU retail businesses that have remained open after the April 29 closure deadline. These locations were prioritized based on proximity to approved MMRU development permits, community feedback, and response to enforcement actions to date. Some of these locations are the source of regular noise and nuisance complaints or have been uncooperative with our inspection staff.

What Would It Take To Reform Marijuana Rules In Professional Sports?

Major League Baseball (MLB) and the National Basketball Association (NBA) both randomly drug test players for the presence of marijuana. The National Football League (NFL) does as well. All three professional sports leagues consider marijuana to be a ‘substance of abuse.’ The National Hockey League (NHL) on the other hand only tests for ‘performance enhancing substances,’ of which marijuana is not included.

You don’t hear as many stories about baseball players getting overly harsh penalties for failing drug tests for marijuana, but the NBA and NFL are full of horror stories. The NFL and NBA are particularly harsh when it comes to penalties for marijuana use. The league policies are harmful to the health of players, who are allowed to consume pharmaceutical painkillers and alcohol virtually unchecked. By pushing players away from cannabis and towards more harmful substances, the league is really putting players’ health in jeopardy.

Professional sports leagues’ drug testing policies are ruining lives. Josh Gordon, a wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns (NFL team), is a good example of that. Josh Gordon has failed the leagues’ drug test multiple times because of marijuana use, with a bigger penalty being handed down each time. Josh Gordon was suspended for an entire season because he had traces of marijuana in his system. The first test was below the threshold. The second test was barelyabove the limit. The traces were so low that they could literally have been from second hand cannabis smoke. Josh Gordon is currently on indefinite suspension from the NFL for his most recent drug test failure.
