Health committee  I shall not speak, I think, on behalf of the aboriginal population and their views with regard to cannabis, but certainly, I think, it is not just the individuals on reserves who avail themselves of the opportunity not to impose taxation to create an incentive to purchase the pro

September 12th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Health committee  Yes. I'd love to see the same rate of training and effort rolled out in Canada as was done in the United States in regard to detection and enforcement with regard to impaired driving. That's ultimately also the explanation. In the United States, it's well known that driving unde

September 12th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Health committee  The evidence is reasonably clear. What's going to keep happening is that harder drugs tend to be imported from the United States into Canada and a good deal of the cannabis product that is being grown in Canada ends up being subsequently exported to the United States. My concern

September 12th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Health committee  I think we heard from other witnesses that there is considerable ambiguity and discretion that law enforcement is going to be afforded, and that in itself is going to be grounds for any number of challenges. This is certainly not going to do anything to free up our courts. It's a

September 12th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Health committee  You'll have to ask Statistics Canada how exactly those data were collected. That's why we created these data. It's true that it'll be difficult to disentangle what other drugs might have been present in that person's system, but what is irrefutable is that in those circumstances

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Health committee  The cause mechanisms would be inherently difficult to disentangle. Somebody could be particularly drunk and it's the phone that rings that ultimately happens to distract him or her from driving. Different people metabolize cannabis differently just as different people metabolize

September 12th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Health committee  We'd still have behavioural change by virtue of decriminalization. It would have some impact on the market, but not as significant an impact.

September 12th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Health committee  I guess that depends on how this goes. If we take as an analogy the cigarette market, about which I've written in great detail, we'd create different outcomes across the different provinces. I think Professor Boyd made an important point. How this is rolled out and how it is enfo

September 12th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Health committee  Thanks for the privilege of being with you today. This is a matter that's dear to my heart, and I've been following it closely. I've submitted a brief to the committee, and I'm hoping to take you through some of the highlights from that brief. There seems to be a bit of confo

September 12th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Public Safety committee  Yes, thank you. I invite you to take a look at my study on Bill C-22, in which I compare several countries. This study will be published in a few weeks and will provide a precise answer to that question, and explain why the bill in its current form has not reached its objective.

February 13th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Public Safety committee  I will eventually share all of that with you.

February 13th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Public Safety committee  Yes, I think the federal government can tell the people on the no fly list that their problems are not the result of Canada's list. The government cannot necessarily tell people which list is being used, but they could be told that the ban is not due to the passenger protect prog

February 13th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Public Safety committee  I think the government has a duty to explain that, although several lists are being used, just one list is important.

February 13th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Public Safety committee  It's a complete free-for-all. I think, regardless of what party is in power, we have an interest in making sure we actually have a coordinated strategy here. I would encourage—

February 13th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Public Safety committee  Look, we're world class on some of the things we do. In some of the very specific capabilities we have, we can play with the best. I think we also have serious challenges in areas where we're not looking forward. For instance, there's no foresight in this country on the way ele
