Now that cannabis is completely legalized and regulated in Canada, people have someone to sue when something wrong with the product.
And so, with the Cannabis Law that came into force last October, it will not be long before anyone can file a legal action against an organization in the young industry.
The first such case appears in B.C. involves little confusion between TCC, things that are getting high, and KBB, a non-psychoactive component of a cannabis factory that researchers teach, has various health benefits.
According to the claim, B.C. Branch for distribution of alcohol and B.C. Cannabis Stores sold a Kamloops product from cannabis product which was labeled as low in THC and high in CBD, but which obviously contains the opposite of that description.
"The defendants did not warn the plaintiff of the dangers of this product," the report said. "Was created at the time of purchase".
The plaintiff, Kimberly Webster, is a student at Thomson Rivers University. In reporting on the allegations, she says she swallowed the product without intending to get high and that it damaged her during a time she intended to study for high school students. Accordingly, the producer's product influenced her grades, Webster claims.
The province has yet to respond and the plaintiff's claims are not proven in court.
