NB pot concerns

New Brunswick doctors say only a Crown corporation with strict monopoly control should be allowed to sell recreational marijuana in the province.

The New Brunswick Medical Society says the retail marijuana business should not be subject to profit targets or take place alongside the sale of alcohol or tobacco.

Dr. Lynn Murphy-Kaulbeck, the president of the New Brunswick Medical Society said “We have to remember there are great potential harms that come from marijuana use.”

She added that it’s harmful to the developing brain whether that’s in fetuses or in young adults.
