Obesity – Personal Responsibility Or Societal Responsibility?

Do you think that you have control over your weight? Some of us doubt our control and others of us "know" we have control. To those that are thin, weight issues are merely a matter of simple diet and exercise. Anyone who is fat, is then considered too lazy to workout and eat right.

The Battle Rages On

In light of culture telling you to take responsibility, each of us strives to take responsibility into our lives. Nobody wants to be the lazy one or the person that lacks motivation. In the end, we all want to lose weight. We incorporate self responsibility and feel failure and lack of self esteem if our plans do not work out. In light of this battle, with self, let's consider some basic facts about personal responsibility.

People are Losing the Battle

The truth of the matter is that obesity is skyrocketing. People are getting fatter and the numbers are growing. There are zillions of diet plans out there, gyms to work out at, home gyms, row machines, elliptical machines, thigh busters, gut masters, and more. The message has always been to be responsible with your weight. So, what has happened? Have people become less responsible than they used to be?

In the era of personal responsibility, people are taking on more and more each and every year. The work week continues to get higher. People are working two or three jobs. Most homes have dual income earners. Extra time is becoming a precious commodity that nobody has much of. In reality, people are more responsible now than ever.

Societal Responsibility

There are societies like China that have an obesity rate at around 2%. Compared with the 35% rate in the United States that is extremely low. Statistics like this point to the idea that societal factors make a huge difference in outcomes.

Cities Fight Back

Some cities are fighting back. Some cities have refused to allow fast food to come into their area. Some cities are promoting fitness for children and adults. Some cities are encouraging the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables by placing them in lots of accessible places.

Many of these cities have become very successful at reducing obesity in their areas. One of the most successful states with obesity is Colorado and that is because they have tried to encourage restaurants to serve healthy portions and to have lots of outdoor areas to get exercise.

Food Lobby Encourage Personal Responsibility

Yes, there is a food lobby, a soda lobby, a candy bar lobby, and even a bubble gum lobby. There are highly paid people out there with one goal and that is to increase your consumption of foods that are terrible for you. They try and influence people with money and advertise junk food to your children. What is their main argument?

Their main argument is to that it is a personal choice and to take personal responsibility. The only thing is that they are backed by lots of people and money working together in a cohesive way. Like them, society must work together and battle these corporations.

The worst thing we can do is to fall for the line that we should take personal responsibility and then as a group do nothing. As a group, efforts to curve obesity have been proven to work well. Many changes need to take place because we are the fattest nation on earth with no end in sight.

Is Your Child Heading For Obesity?

In this day and age there are so many more activities available for children to play indoors. With the advent of mainly television and video games more and more children are happy to sit glued to these devices rather than going out playing and getting exercise. As a result of this sedentary lifestyle that many kids adopt from a young age, the number of children becoming obese is growing. So how can you spot if your child is falling into the trap and is heading for obesity? Well, typically there will be a number of warning signs to look out for:

1. Food. This is the number one cause people think of when you mention obesity – and for good reason. Do not worry about how much your child eats, rather it is important to keep an eye out for what choices they make. Do they prefer fruit or biscuits as a snack? Do they eat between meals? Are desserts eaten at all times of the day? Almost all children have a very sweet tooth and so enjoy sugary treats but these as with anything should be eaten in moderation.

2. Lethargic. If your child rarely or never goes out for physical exercise the likelihood is that hey are not consuming the correct vitamins required for energy and growth. If they spend all day rooted in front of the television screen or the computer then this is probably they are the only activities they feel like doing. A child can’t be forced to go out and do exercise if they feel too lethargic so the first step is to eat a healthy diet.

3. Sleep. Children and adults tend to sleep more when they are low on energy as sleep helps the body recuperate. So if your child tends not to surface until midday or after then, again, they are missing out on vital vitamins and nutrients. Also, although outdoor exercise is indeed tiring it does energize the body and gives exposure to the Sun which provides vitamin D.

Preventing your child becoming obese means watching for the signs and encouraging your child towards healthier options. Getting them interested early on in healthy foods and exercise will mean a much happier and longer life for your child.

Legal Perspective: Inside Canada’s New Cannabis & Hemp Regulations

Access to medical cannabis in Canada has been permitted since 1999. The current Canadian framework allowing Canadians access to medical cannabis is found in the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (the “ACMPR”), which has been in place as of Aug. 24, 2016, and sets out the current legal structure of Canada’s evolving medical cannabis framework. Because legislators and regulators in Canada are currently changing the country’s medical cannabis laws, it is worth examining where the industry stands today.

Adult-Use and Medical Cannabis in Canada

Canada’s proposed adult-use law is designed to “keep cannabis out of the hands of children and youth and keep profits out of the hands of organized crime.” In May 2017, Health Canada committed to streamlining the medical license application process to enable increased production for medical purposes, also ensuring supply meets demand once the adult-use legislation is enacted. As of late 2017, approximately 200 applications for a medical license are close to being issued a license. What these measures would suggest is that Health Canada continues to focus on reducing the scale of the illicit cannabis market and aligning its approach with regulations, “the existing evidence of risks to public health and safety, and its approach to other regulated sectors.”

Health Canada is the Canadian federal department responsible for licensing and overseeing the commercial medical cannabis industry, and registering individuals to produce cannabis for their own medical purposes. Under the licensing process, Health Canada can authorize each Licensed Producer (known as an “LP”) to cultivate, process, sell, import/export and other related activities, and Licensed Dealers to test, transport and deliver cannabis as well as sell to authorized persons, among other related activities.

As part of the election promise to legalize cannabis, the Liberal Party of Canada introduced into the House of Commons “Bill C-45” on April 13, 2017, which, once passed, makes cannabis use legal in Canada and amends other related acts, such as the criminal code and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act with respect to cannabis. Bill C-45 is currently in the Senate for approval, the final review process prior to a bill receiving Royal Assent and becoming law. The intention of the Canadian federal government is that Bill C-45 receive Royal Assent during the summer of 2018.

According to section 158(1) of the proposed law, a Licensed Producer authorized to cultivate, process and sell cannabis under the ACMPR for medical purposes is deemed to be a licensee issued under section 62 of Bill C-45. This means that ACMPR medical cannabis LPs are also automatically permitted to grow and sell non-medical cannabis. In addition, the regulations for the adult-use industry — released in November 2017 — outline a framework to permit smaller scale licenses, known as micro licenses to engage in micro-cultivation, micro-processing, and sales, promoting a craft cannabis market in Canada. Until the final regulations are published, the application process for micro licenses remains unclear, as does the definition of “micro,” with possible defining considerations including canopy space, plant count, square footage of grow space, gross revenue and so on.

Under the proposed regulations, each of Canada’s 13 provinces and territories are tasked with implementing a distribution and retail sale framework for the sale of cannabis for non-medical purposes. If a province or territory has not created the above framework by the time the bill is enacted, the regulations will allow the Canadian federal government to implement a mail order system in that province or territory.

Hemp in Canada

There are many varieties of the cannabis plant, and hemp, also called industrial hemp, refers to the varieties of Cannabis sativa L. which typically contains less than 1 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC). Although cannabis is a controlled substance in Canada, there are exceptions, including medical cannabis use and industrial hemp, under the Industrial Hemp Regulations (IHR).

The IHR defines Industrial Hemp as “the plants and plant parts of the genera Cannabis, the leaves and flowering heads of which do not contain more than 0.3 percent THC”, and permits certain activities with respect to hemp for commercial purposes through a licensing system. However, current licenses granted under the IHR expire in the calendar year they are issued.

Under Canada’s proposed new cannabis regulations, every license or authorization issued under the IHR prior to the commencement date of Bill C-45 will be deemed to be a license issued under Section 62 of that law. According to the draft regulations, non-viable seed, mature stalk without any leaf, flower, seed or branch fall outside the scope of the adult-use law, and therefore no license would be required for processing or sale, or for the sale of any derivatives of seed and grain containing 10 micrograms/grams THC.

The IHR applies to the importation, exportation and possession of industrial hemp and its production, sale, provision, transport, sending or delivering. The IHR does not apply to the importation, exportation, sale or provision of whole industrial hemp plants, including sprouts, or the leaves, flowers or bracts of those plants, or their derivatives, or any derivative of seed, viable or non-viable seed, or products from that derivative, if the derivative or product contain more than 10 micrograms/gram THC.

Both Canada’s Controlled Substances Act and the IHR do not apply to the importation, exportation or wholesale sale of a derivative of seed, viable grain or non-viable cannabis seed, or a product made from that derivative, if not made from whole industrial plants (including sprouts, leaves, flowers or bracts of those plants). The laws also do not apply to an industrial hemp derivative or product that has 10 micrograms/gram THC or less, labelled as such, and accompanied by a certificate of THC from a trusted laboratory. An example of such a derivative or product that the Controlled Substances Act or IHR would not apply to may be hemp seed oil and flour with less 10 micrograms/gram THC or less.

Under the proposed regulations for Canada’s adult-use cannabis market, industrial hemp would be defined as “cannabis plants whose leaves and flowering heads do not contain more than 0.3 percent THC,” and similar to the micro-license framework for non-medical cannabis, industrial hemp licenses will be permitted to possess, transport, research and sell industrial hemp leaves, flowers and branches (or the whole plant).

The regulations will also modify existing physical security requirements for industrial hemp licenses and begin treating industrial hemp storage as any other agricultural product. This includes a proposal to remove a current IHR requirement that industrial hemp be stored in a locked container or location, or premises to which only authorized persons have access.

Currently, industrial hemp licences authorize the cultivation of industrial hemp from approved varieties from pedigreed seeds, those that have been confirmed to consistently produce less than 0.3 percent or less THC. The benefit of using approved pedigreed seeds is that these licensees would be permitted to bypass the lab THC testing requirement. Lab testing would remain mandatory for those Industrial Hemp licensees under the new regulations who do not use pre-approved pedigreed seeds to confirm THC content.

Canadian Capital Markets and Cannabis

On October 16, 2017, the Canadian Securities Administrators released a bulletin which recognized the illegal status of cannabis at the federal level in the U.S., the conflict between the U.S. federal and state cannabis laws and the general U.S. policy based on the Cole Memorandum. This bulletin is currently under review by the CSA in light of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinding of the Cole Memorandum on Jan. 4 of this year.

“We remind investors that the political and regulatory circumstances surrounding the treatment of U.S. marijuana-related activities are uncertain,” the bulletin read. “In the event that U.S. federal law against marijuana is enforced, there could be material consequences for any issuer with U.S. marijuana- related activities, including prosecution and asset seizure.”

The CSA Staff Notice deferred to Canadian exchanges whether to list or maintain listings of issuers with exposure to the U.S. cannabis industry. The approach taken in Canada by the three major equity changes — the TSX, the TSXV and the CSE — differ. With the TSX and the TSXV, issuers with exposure to the U.S. cannabis industry are deemed to be non-compliant with listing requirements. However, the Canadian Securities Exchange (the CSE) permits issuers to list and maintain their listings with U.S. cannabis-related activities, provided they comply with the U.S. state law in which they operate and meet the risk disclosure requirements under Canadian securities law as highlighted in the CSA Staff Notice.

On Jan. 12, the CSA issued a press release indicating it is “considering whether our disclosure-based approach for issuers with U.S. marijuana-related activities remains appropriate in light of the rescission of the Cole Memorandum.” On February 8, 2018, the CSA concluded “that a disclosure-based approach remains appropriate in the current circumstances,” meaning that their policy would not change.

Exporting Canadian Cannabis

Under the Canada’s medical marijuana laws, an LP can obtain authorization from Health Canada to export cannabis internationally. Until recently, when countries such as Australia and Colombia relaxed rules to allow for the exportation of medical cannabis, Canada faced little competition exporting cannabis globally, gaining first mover advantage into emerging markets such as Germany, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Croatia and New Zealand among others.

Though Canada remains one of 185 parties to three United Nations drug control conventions — the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances and the 1988 Convention against the Illicit Trade in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances — other countries continue to watch Canada, the first G7 country, refine its medical cannabis framework and implement a federal regulated non-medical cannabis industry as well. Germany, for example, reached an agreement with Canada to import Canadian medical cannabis while looking to also implement a government regulated medical cannabis framework.

Canada stands to be a leader in the world in setting the standard for developing an accountable and reliable regime for cannabis regulation.

Obesity and Poor Eating Habits – 7 Bad Habits That Lead to Being Obese

Eating food is not just the problem when it comes to obesity. Even the food industry has figured out what triggers the obese person senses because they have been studying it for years. There are a few other things that obese people do other than poor eating habits. Let's take a moment and look into obesity and poor eating habits. There are 7 bad habits that lead to being obese.

1) They grab the bigger plates. When obese people go to a buffet they usually will grab the largest plate on the bar. Not only do they grab the largest plate but the biggest drink as well. When you have a larger plate this will cause you to eat more food and gain more weight. Most people do not account for what they drink either. Did you know that drink consumption is where most people pack on the extra pounds due to the calories and extra sugar in the drinks?

2) Many times obese people will be eating while watching food. Most of the time when they go to a restaurant, especially buffets, they will sit right in front of it and watch the food as if they were going somewhere. When you see food it begins to trigger our minds on the way it might taste and look and 90% of the time we will eat more because we can not resist the egg roll, or the banana pudding.

3) Another thing with obesity and poor eating habits is you try to shovel the food in instead of taking your time. If you know how to use chopsticks use them instead of a fork. Slow down and do not cram the food in.

4) I have never seen an obese person leave food on the plate. Every single bite is taken care of and sometimes the dish does not even look like it was ate off of. Just because the food is there does not mean you have to clean your plate.3

5) A terrible obesity and poor eating habits is obese people will inhale their food. They will not take the time to chew their food. The more you chew the faster you will get full.

6) Obese people are keen investigators when it comes to food. Usually they will make a round around the buffet to see when kind of case they come up with on their plate. They usually plan what their going to eat before they eat it.

7). The absolute worst thing for obesity and poor eating habits is skipping breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal and most obese people skip this one. If you eat breakfast you can make it to the next meal without indulging in it.
