Cannabis legalization may be just around the corner in Canada, but there are still a lot of things left to figure out. One thing we didn't stop to think about is the packaging weed will be sold in.
Health Canada is actually going to release a plan to regulate what these "weed packs" should look like. And sadly it turns out they will be adorned with the same kind stomach churning images as we currently see on cigarette packs.
Weed will have to be sold in plain packs with gross health warnings all over. So when you're getting high on legal weed next summer, trying to relax, you'll be staring at shit like this the whole time:
The warnings will highlight risks such as: the dangers of cannabis use during pregnancy, drug-impaired driving, and the dangers of mixing alcohol with marijuana.
Then again maybe putting scary images about death and health defects in front of a paranoid person who just smoked a copious amount of weed isn't the wisest of ideas. I'm sure this will result in many many bad trips.
Maybe instead they should put warnings like:
