Calgary Herald - - CANADA -

Cannabis NB has re­placed im­ages on its web­site of peo­ple en­joy­ing them­selves with im­ages of chairs, a book and paint­ing sup­plies af­ter Health Canada raised con­cerns last week. The agency came un­der scru­tiny for its prod­uct de­scrip­tions and pic­tures of peo­ple smil­ing, pos­ing for self­ies and hold­ing yoga poses — im­ages that may vi­o­late fed­eral reg­u­la­tions. In a state­ment, Health Canada spokesman An­dre Gagnon said the de­part­ment is try­ing to raise aware­ness about the Cannabis Act and its re­stric­tions on pro­mo­tion. “In a few cases, Health Canada has reached out to … li­cence hold­ers to bring con­cerns to their at­ten­tion, or to col­lect in­for­ma­tion and gain a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of some of the facts per­tain­ing to their pro­mo­tional ac­tiv­i­ties,” he said.
