Cannabis Q&A: Rick Bonnette

Cannabis Q&A: Rick Bonnette

1. Have you ever used Cannabis? And if so, what did you think of it?

Yes I have tried cannabis before in my early 20’s was the first time I did grow up in Acton and like all small towns it was available. I never purchased it. But it was around at parties etc. Being a non-smoker I can say I really didn’t enjoy it. Too harsh.

2. What is your current stance on Cannabis?

Cannabis is going to be legal whether you like it or not on October 17th.

3. Would you vote for Halton Hills to opt in, or opt out, or wait to opt in of the new legislation?

It is too early for this decision as we still don’t know what or if there is a revenue stream for the municipality or extra pressure for police. Again I would want perimeters of where it is to be sold. I liked the previous government when they looked at the LCBO as the spot too sell it. Now there will be new guidelines from the Province and once we see what all it entails we will make decision. We will consult with the community.

4. What is your opinion on Cannabis vs. Alcohol? Do you find one substance to be better, more harmful, or equal?

Like anything else it should be taken in moderation. And don’t drink or smoke then drive. There should be restrictions where you can smoke it just like there are for drinking alcohol
