420 with CNW – Ottawa Police Department Rejects Cannabis Roadside Test Kits

The police department in Ottawa, Canada, has rejected the roadside test kits which the federal government approved for catching drivers who are impaired by the consumption of marijuana.

DrugTest 5000, already in use in several states across the U.S., was introduced in Canada ahead of the October 17 date when recreational cannabis will be available across the country. The Ottawa P.D. cites a number of reasons for its stance.

First, the police say that the DrugTest 5000 kits are very expensive. Each unit reportedly costs $6,000. The regulations in place require the police to conduct a cannabis test as soon as a driver is suspected of being impaired. This means that every police patrol vehicle would have to be equipped with the test kit, an undertaking that would take a lot of money.

Secondly, the sample of saliva taken must be kept at a certain temperature in order to give reliable results once tested for THC. This is too much of a hassle for the police department to deal with on a daily basis.

More opposition to the test kits is resulting from the information filtering in from across the border in the U.S. Apparently, the devices have been successfully challenged in the courts of law for being unreliable, since so much is left to the subjective assessment of the officer selecting drivers to screen.

Some people have even said the cannabis test process is as effective as “tossing a coin” to determine whether someone was impaired due to the presence of marijuana in their blood.

Another fundamental question that needs to be answered is how much THC (tetrahydrocannabinoid) is sufficient to cause impairment. Experts seem to agree that it isn’t as clear cut as is the case with the blood alcohol level detected during a Breathalyzer test.

In light of the above, it seems that the Ottawa Police Department is onto something by rejecting these roadside test kits, which currently appear to be expensive gadgets whose results may not stand up to legal scrutiny.

The decision to train more drug recognition experts may be a smarter move by the Ottawa Police Department, since it provides a better way to identify and possibly prosecute those who will drive under the influence of marijuana. One is left wondering what the thoughts of companies like Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTC: CHOOF) and Hiku Brands Co. Ltd (CSE: HIKU) (OTC: DJACF) may be on this matter.

CannabisNewsAudio – Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) Remains Solid in the Ever-changing Cannabis Industry

Related Editorial
The Canadian cannabis industry is pliable, changing shape amid mounting public support, favorable legislative action, an influx in capital, and the integration of alcohol and tobacco. For years, this massive industry was entirely illegal; its potential unavailable to legitimate investors. As Canada heads toward legalizing recreational cannabis later this year, however, the continuous sculpting of the industry provides investors a wealth of consumer-driven investment opportunities. Choom Holdings, Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) (CHOOF Profile) is targeting the recreational user via its own brand of high-grade handcrafted cannabis. Cannabis lifestyle brand Hiku Brands Co. Ltd. (CSE: HIKU) (OTC: DJACF) (DJACF Profile) recently received a $10 million equity investment from Aphria, Inc. (TSX: APH) (OTC: APHQF), denoting high expectations for recreational cannabis. Canopy Growth Corp.’s (TSX: WEED) (OTC: TWMJF) recent investment from a big alcohol brand reveals a glimpse of how separate sectors of recreational consumables are interwoven. This strategic blending means big business for cultivators such as ABcann Global (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) (ABCCF Profile), a recognizable licensed producer and seller of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis products.

CannabisNewsBreaks – Hiku Brands Company Ltd. (CSE: HIKU) (OTC: DJACF) Subsidiary Completes Pre-Sales Inspection at West Kelowna

Canada’s first vertically-integrated cannabis brand house, Hiku Brands Company Ltd. (CSE: HIKU) (OTC: DJACF), through its DOJA Cannabis Ltd. subsidiary, this morning announced that it has completed Health Canada’s pre-sales license inspection of its West Kelowna facility. Per the update, Health Canada inspectors were onsite at the West Kelowna project throughout a three-day period ended on February 15, 2018, in an effort to verify the information submitted by DOJA as part of its application and assess the company’s compliance with applicable sections of the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations. This milestone is particularly noteworthy as it coincides with Hiku subsidiary TS Brandco Holdings Inc. being conditionally awarded one of only four master retail licenses through Manitoba’s highly competitive request for proposal process for the right to operate retail cannabis stores in the province. Hiku notes that, with the license win in Manitoba, the company has increased its internal forecasts for retail demand related to its branded cannabis flower and oil, and, as a result, it has decided to accelerate the build-out of DOJA’s second facility in Kelowna, British Columbia.

CannabisNewsAudio – Hiku Brands Co. Ltd. (CSE: HIKU) (OTC: DJACF) Set to Remap Canada’s Cannabis Retail Industry

Related Editorial
Out of 120 applicants, Manitoba recently awarded four master retail licenses, a monumental action as Canada prepares to legalize cannabis for recreational use this summer. The entities that now hold prized licenses to retail pot and its associated paraphernalia in the province are: Tokyo Smoke, a subsidiary of HIKU Brands (CSE:HIKU; OTCBB: DJACF) (DJACF Profile); a consortium of Delta 9 Cannabis Inc. and Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX: WEED) (OTC: TWMJF); National Access Cannabis (CSE: NAC) (OTC: NACNF); and 10552763 Canada Corporation. One key industry player that missed out on this licensing opportunity is MedReleaf (TSE: LEAF) (OTC: MEDFF). These licenses open the doors to considerable recreational retail revenue potential, and investors with foresight were quick to take action, with Aphria (TSX: APH) (OTC: APHQF) and Koicha Partners LP investing millions into the big four’s newest presence, HIKU.
