The Feds Want Your Expertise When it Comes to Eating Weed

Weed is legal in Canada now, which is good.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of areas for improvement. After bungling parts of the rollout, the Canadian government is calling on the public’s input ahead of the next major phase of legalization: edibles.

“Health Canada is seeking your feedback on proposed regulations for three new classes of cannabis: edible cannabis, cannabis extracts, and cannabis topicals,” reads a statement introducing a 13-part questionnaire that is now open until February 20th. This is a good thing, because edibles can be a truly wicked ride.

Admittedly, it’s a bit unsettling to connect your cookies to your opinions on pot after federal privacy experts advised only buying marijuana with cash to avoid a lifetime travel ban, but part of the pact is that you’re an adult and can presumably make responsible decisions.

The cool thing is that this is a test you can do even while you’re high. And, having done it, I can confirm that it’s actually kind of fun. You can also email your opinion to or send your thoughts via post to:

The Cannabis Act dictates that edibles, extracts, and topicals must be regulated and ready for legal sale by October 17, 2019.
