Project: L'histoire de la marijuana au Canada

This project describes the history and properties of marijuana as well as its close variant, hemp, and the approaching legalization of marijuana in Canada.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I learned about the difference between marijuana and hemp, and how the variant with a lower percentage of THC has been present in my life unknowingly.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I believe that the legalization of marijuana is not necessarily a bad thing, even though it is widely seen as a mistake on the part of the Canadian government. Although there are some downsides, its legalization will allow it to be more controlled, safe, and accessible to those who need it.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

With the eventual legalization of marijuana, I believe that my life will not be changed dramatically, but I will still be exposed to second hand smoke and air pollution.
