LETTER: Decision to ban edibles is irrational and uninformed — 12 Comments

  1. Lori you have my families full support.
    We rely on edibles at times too and we will be sending our thoughts to VIHA.
    Thank you for being brave and speaking up.

  2. Bravo for your honesty!The bureacrats and health officials need to understand the importance of edibles for people with painful diseases that do not cope well smoking.

  3. Well I have to say you are against the majority. Most of the people here in Sooke and elsewhere are recreational users. They use pot to get high! I would be interested to see who goes into the 3 pot shops here in Sooke. We are in the wild west here. Drugs rule. It is ruining our society here. If you are going to present your needs as a medical issue you will need to prove that you aren’t a druggie.

    • The last time I went to the cannabis dispensary the other woman buying was certainly over 50 and had very painful mobility issues. By the way, I am 65 this week and go about in a powerchair

  4. Making Cannabis illegal in 1935 in the US was one of the more stupid, illogical laws ever foisted upon civilization. For it to continue is absurd. It’s a natural plant of the Earth and people should be able to do what they want with it. Don’t tell me what I can or cannot do to my body, it’s none of your business.

  5. It’s interesting. Even the insurance companies no longer consider occasional marijuana consumption as “smoker” rates. Up until last year, people who consumed Marijuana products paid higher premiums for life, disability and critical illness insurance. Not any more.

  6. Lori …..Bravo . Can they not see the shear volume of people that use and depend on these meds. In my circle of family and friends I would say 1/2 are users of edibles and creams. My wife does a lot of volounteering with different senior programs and they too are thankful for the edible meds or very effective sauves and creams .I happen to make my own but many just cant do that. Perhaps it is because big brother cant TAX it in the same way as they plan to do with the flower. I smell a rat.
