environmental health risks(Eykelbosh & Steiner, 2017). Adopting those fundamental risk preventions are easy to be overlooked and neglected unless it becomes obligatory. By implementing licensing regime, cannabis growers can be aware of and protected from possible health hazards and risks (Eykelbosh & Steiner, 2017) . People also argue that implementing license policy raises administrative burden and it is an unnecessary task for the government to handle. However, the federal and provincial governments have a responsibility to determine how cannabis legalization would affect public health and safety. Furthermore, government must address potential social and health issues prior to the legalization of Bill C- 45. As a matter of course, government must provide practical and feasible ways to deal with secondary effects of personal cannabis cultivation. Introducing the strict licensing regime for home cannabis cultivation is one of the methods the government could offer to citizens, to protect public health and safety (Eykelbosh & Steiner, 2017). It is reasonable for the government to withstand the administrative burden as it is government’s bounden duty to be publicly answerable for the Bill C-45.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
