Canada – fruit of a reckless rushed liberal cannabis policy

first_imgFinancial Post 30 July 2019Family First Comment: Canada ain’t working that well, despite claims of NZ advocates for pot…..“Black market dope continues to sell for nearly half the price of the legal stuff because bootleggers are obviously able to produce and import with impunity. This negates the Liberal notion that legalization will put the drug dealers out of business, make sure the products are not diluted or dangerous, and collect big taxes on an illicit product that people were going to buy anyway. This is Cheech and Chong policy: Eliminating the black market will be impossible because while unlicensed cannabis cultivation is illegal in Canada, possession and consumption is entirely legal. So, criminals and importers have more customers than ever.”Duh!The legalization of marijuana was cynically rushed into law by the Trudeau government without sufficient medical testing on long-term health effects or adequate controls over the players involved, presumably to court the youth vote.For a country where governments bear the cost of medical care, it is the height of recklessness to legitimize the sale of weed without the same rigorous testing requirements that pharmaceutical or food companies must endure.In addition, Ottawa has delivered the worst of all possible outcomes in what amounts to an inept rollout: Black market dope continues to sell for nearly half the price of the legal stuff because bootleggers are obviously able to produce and import with impunity.This negates the Liberal notion that legalization will put the drug dealers out of business, make sure the products are not diluted or dangerous, and collect big taxes on an illicit product that people were going to buy anyway.This is Cheech and Chong policy: Eliminating the black market will be impossible because while unlicensed cannabis cultivation is illegal in Canada, possession and consumption is entirely legal.

Volkswagen Group Components to produce fast charging station with storage

first_imgSource: Volkswagen In 2020, Volkswagen Group Components, an independent business unit of Volkswagen AG, will start production of a fast charging station capable of charging four vehicles simultaneously and providing energy storage when not in use. The charging stations will be manufactured at a components plant in Hanover, replacing the plant’s current heat exchanger production area.The charging station is based on the battery package of the VW Group’s Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB), and is designed to use its cell modules. Later, the charging station can provide a second life for EV batteries.“The development of charging infrastructure will be a key factor in the success of e-mobility,” said Thomas Schmall, CEO of Volkswagen Group Components. “The flexible fast charging station developed by Group Components can make a key contribution in this area. The charging station is an element in the end-to-end responsibility of Group Components for the high-voltage battery – from the development of cell production competences through to recycling.” Source: Electric Vehicles Magazinelast_img read more
