Grammy-Winning Singer Becomes Cannabis Advocate

In 2004, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge was diagnosed with breast cancer and has been living a healthy and cancer-free life for just over a decade. During her struggle, she underwent a lumpectomy and five rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. To ease her pain, doctors prescribed her steroids and painkillers, a total of five pharmaceuticals, but she refused to take them. Instead, she started smoking medicinal marijuana, and although she’d been smoking since she was 21-years-old, her experience with medical marijuana forever changed her stance on the healing plant. Etheridge is now a cannabis advocate helping to destigmatize the drug and other patients suffering from similar pain.


When marijuana edibles hit Canadian cannabis dispensary shelves later this year, you can expect them to be taxed based on how strong they are. Canada's recently released federal 2020 budget proposes to tax marijuana edibles based on the amount of THC they contain. THC is one of the active ingredients in cannabis and the one most associated with producing the plant's signature high.
