What is illegal cannabis?
Buying cannabis on the black market is illegal. Black market cannabis operates outside the regulatory and legal framework established by the Canadian government. Black market cannabis is mainly composed of the following channels:
- Illegal online sites that sell cannabis
- Unlicensed physical pharmacy
- Street dealers
All three channels obtain cannabis supplies from illegal suppliers. These suppliers are closely related to gang relationships and even organized crime. The black market business does not pay any taxes, and the income is used to invest in Canadian facilities, services and social projects.
The dangers of black market cannabis
Users face many risks when obtaining cannabis from black market sources.
These hazards may include:
- Contaminated cannabis products (fungal infections, mold)
- Mislabeled and misleading products
- Parcel seized by Canada Post
- Falling victim to scams
- Total lack of customer care
- Engaging in illegal activities may lead to legal consequences
Untested black market cannabis can cause pollution
The beauty of legalization is knowing that all products are rigorously tested before being sold in any retail location. According to the law, all licensed manufacturers must inspect their products and issue a quality assurance certificate by an accredited laboratory. This document ensures that all products, medical cannabis or other products comply with the strict health standards set by Health Canada.
Since the black market operates entirely within the legal scope, illegal cannabis is not subject to any health regulations. There are no regulatory safeguards to protect users from potentially harmful products. Because this critical step was skipped, there have been numerous reports, including headlines and anecdotes, about users receiving large amounts of black market cannabis contaminated with pesticides, mold, and fungi.
Exposure to mold can cause symptoms such as wheezing, difficulty breathing, nasal congestion, and itchy eyes and skin. People who are allergic to molds or who have diseases such as asthma may experience more severe reactions. People who are immunosuppressed and those who suffer from lung or chronic respiratory diseases are particularly susceptible to mold and fungus contamination.
In the months after legalization, Health Canada conducted extensive surprise inspections of many licensed manufacturers in Canada. Of the 133 tests conducted between November 2018 and February 2019, 95% of cannabis samples tested negative for pesticides.
