Possibly, for sure, I'm going to ask the question in French.
This is a very interesting discussion. Since I'm speaking last, I tried to be attentive all the time, but there is one thing I probably didn't hear.
Currently, there is talk of non-uniform distribution of private cannabis products. They are distributed by no one knows who yet. Is this right? Are we talking about distribution of private products with different packaging, depending on the brand and the producer? Are we talking about producing and distributing a product through a single distributor? Do we want the government to be behind this, to provide distribution, to have its dispensaries and specially licenced affiliated producers?
A little earlier, in this instance, the example of milk was given. If we all have the same carton of milk, the same package of cigarettes, the same package of joints, will that wipe out the differences in colour? We would forget the colours and brands; only the name, THC level and health problems, so that people know, would be indicated. As for the rest, there would be no marketing, no advertising, none of that.
At present, medical marijuana dispensaries and stores don't advertise. Are we going around in circles about solutions, when we should be asking the government to take responsibility for distribution and completely eliminate the advertising aspect?
My question is for you, Professor Hammond.
