I am GMAF President and Legal Representative of GMAF, woman, activist, attorney attorney and Human Rights Defender ;. Since 1998 I began to make visible the reality of the places of confinement, first talking about what was happening there and gradually showing that the internal norm of many States made many people live a double sentence - that of the law and health in these places of confinement.

She trained me on International Law - Human Rights and on the reality of groups in social vulnerability, such as women - gender, sexual diversity, HIV-AIDS, prevention of torture, arbitrary detentions and detentions, mothers with babies in confinement.

My activism led me to participate in international events of the UN, OAS, and as organizations that today we articulate actions in a network, today training me in English to be able to take the voice of the reality of what is lived to international spaces and thus generate new proposals on public policies necessary for the global community.

Drug Policy: Building or Demolishing Community Resilience? Changing the Narrative.

Unpacking unhelpful subjective narratives being used to re-frame Drug Policy to unhelpful community ends. Community, family, and particularly children safety, health and well-being should be enhanced, not diminished by Drug Policy interpretations.

“There was never any wording that was spoken to this one way or another, and it’s something we’ll have to address as we see something coming from the federal or provincial levels," he said.

He said the city is hesitant to put any new bylaws into place now, as both consultations and guidelines from the province regarding the management of marijuana are starting later this fall.

“It’s very difficult for municipalities to put out any current zoning info one way or another without having a full breadth of what the legislative changes will be," he said.

Kristen Calis is a reporter with Metroland Media Group’s Durham Region Division. She can be reached at . Follow on Twitter and Facebook


Tiara also believes regulations — ones that consider the needs of all involved — are needed for the successful operation of vaping lounges.

She said she's shared her plans for opening up the lounge with Durham police officers, and has told her local councillors.

Durham Regional Police Const. George Tudos said if the shop were selling marijuana, it would definitely be illegal.

“There’s so many different things that we would have to look into,” he said. “It would be something that would be under our radar, making sure it’s not in contravention of the law. We want to make sure everyone is working within the parameters of the law.”

Kyle Bentley, Pickering’s director of city development and chief building official, said at the time, there is no wording within the city’s zoning bylaws that specifically address permissible uses associated with cannabis.


McLean is skeptical whether the lounge will even be able to operate, and believes the city has to start working on regulations surrounding marijuana.

He said if marijuana becomes legalized as planned, “(a vapour lounge) should be licensed, it should be regulated, it should be in designated areas where it could operate."

He does not believe the lounge suits a plaza, especially in a neighbourhood with families living nearby.

“I have to be the bearer of the bad news for them, but even if it was legal, I’d have a real issue with it," he said. "Even if you want to equate it to a liquor-licensed establishment, there’s regulations on them.”


Marijuana is supposed to be legal in Canada as of next July. Since 2015, medical marijuana users can smoke in many spaces where smoking cigarettes is otherwise banned.

“Medical marijuana you can smoke almost anywhere,” said Tiara. “Still, it’s very frowned upon. From Oshawa to Pickering, there are a lot of medical marijuana patients who have nowhere to go.”

“We’re really trying to follow the law to the best of our ability,” she said.

But it's a difficult area, one on which many seem unclear, as medical marijuana users can light up just about anywhere in Ontario, and legalization legislation is coming down the pipe.

To McLean, the bottom line is smoking weed is not legal in Canada at this time, and he does not feel the lounge is appropriate.

“I think it’s more of a social thing, as opposed to a medicine thing,” he said of the lounge.


Tiara is a medical marijuana user for insomnia and anxiety, as well as lower back pain from a snowboarding fall she can't shake.

“At the end of the day, it’s extremely beneficial for so many different things,” she said.

Annelene is a physiotherapist, and believes in a healthy, holistic lifestyle.

The couple recently met a woman who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She was interested in consuming medical marijuana, but didn’t want to consume it around her children.

“This place is for people exactly like her,” said Annelene, co-CEO.

Tiara said it’s also for those who cannot smoke in areas that do not allow smoking — a condo building perhaps — and don’t want to smoke out on the street.


“As much as I know they’re going to run a tight ship, outside those doors who knows what’s going to happen here?” said Ward 2 Regional Councillor Bill McLean.

He had asked city staff at an executive committee meeting to look into regulating such establishments.

Tiara, a University of Toronto graduate, spent her entire years at school focusing on cannabis and legislation. She found there were many lounges in Toronto, which they would visit, and noted they only know of one vape lounge in Durham, which is no longer in operation. It seemed to have operated under the radar.

“We wanted to take a different approach,” said Tiara, the company’s CEO. “We didn’t want that sketchy vibe that often goes along with cannabis.”


The lounge will allow people to smoke from a pricey vape — specifically, Volcano vaporizers — which the couple said is one of the healthiest methods of cannabis consumption. Members can also rent bongs and pipes if they prefer.

Air purifiers will help clear the air. Cannabis merchandise such as bongs, pipes, and grinders, as well as snacks and refreshments, will also be for sale.

But there will be no cannabis sold on the premises. Visitors have to bring their own, must be 19 or older and cannot drink alcohol on site.

While the Sillets encourage people with medical marijuana licenses to consume the drug on the premises, they will not be checking these licenses at the door.

While the couple insists many locals, including nearby business owners, seem to be on board, at least one person has a problem with the establishment.


Pickering vape lounge will allow members to smoke pot in relaxing environment

PICKERING — A Pickering couple has high hopes for the opening of their holistic vape lounge that allows marijuana users to smoke cannabis in a comfortable environment.

YouthRISE, both on our own and in conjunction with other groups, work to produce tools and resources relating to drug policy and harm reduction for use by a wide range of people from young people who use drugs, youth advocates and leaders, as well as other stakeholders, such as media, law enforcement, educators etc. We apply our first-hand experience and knowledge of the issues facing young people who use drugs and combine it with our expertise in drug policy and harm reduction to produce harm reduction materials, from guidelines, articles and other papers to flyers, posters and stickers. Our aim is for these resources to positively impact, either directly or indirectly, the health and well-being of young people who use drugs, through aiding them in advocacy work, local community mobilisation, education of stakeholders, and these resources directed towards them and the people they interact with.

We actively advocate and support the recognition and upholding of human rights for all people who use drugs, and are involved in the drug market, particularly all youth involved. We do this through attending conferences and organizing events that promote the awareness of the lack of human rights that young people who use drugs have, and through supporting youth organizations and individuals that work on the ground to ensure the human rights of young PWUD are recognized.

We advocate for and assist in the provision of Full Spectrum Harm Reduction, which incorporates all of the people who use drugs, and all of the methods with which they use them, as well as all of the political, social, and environmental contexts surrounding this. It aims to include and account for the diversity of factors at play when we consider all forms of drug use and all of the people who use drugs globally.

The main guiding principles of Full Spectrum Harm Reduction remain the same as traditional Harm Reduction models. The aim is to keep people who use drugs safe and to minimize the harm associated with drug use. By incorporating a wider number of forms of drug use and a wider number of factors associated with drug use we hope to further reduce stigma, discrimination, and inhumane situations people who use drugs find themselves in.

International Day of the Girl Child

If the future of the girl-child is not properly built, the future of the country will be in ruins.

We all need to be committed to raising our girl-child and not neglecting the girl-child.

A girl child needs to be confident of her tomorrow and that can only happen where there is a right and safe environment, where she can dream at night and not have nightmares, where she can spread her wings and fly beyond limits.

Drug Policy Futures has published the report "People's Voice - The Roar of the Silent Majority". The report looks back and points at the achievements and the failures of global drug policies since 2009 and concludes that not all is bad, but it's not all good either.

Furthermore, the report analyses the international drug policy discourse and concludes that flawed discourse has stifled progress in the last decade. Beyond false dichotomies, there is a third way into the future for drug policy.

Towards the end "People's Voice" recommends 13 areas of action that governments should prioritize in order to reduce drug-related harm.

YouthRISE engages in regular advocacy work at a number of conferences as well as attending sessions of the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs. This advocacy work is done to voice the issues young people who use drugs face across the world, such as barriers to healthcare, human rights violations, absence of objective information and education on drugs and other risks and harms caused by the war on drugs. We do this by taking people who have been working with us through youth engagement to represent their region, and the young people who use drug within their region, in the international arena. Through our involvement in the Commission on Narcotic Drugs we are a member of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime Civil Society Task Force, a network of Civil Society groups which aims to increase the involvement of NGOs and Civil Society Groups in International advocacy, particularly relating to drug policy and UNODC’s thematic areas of work.

Covid-19 negative impacts

Covid-19 have plunged many citizens of the nation into recession. Unemployment and salary deduction are parts of the negative impacts of covid-19, mortality rate have also increased rapidly.

Due to the pandemic there have been increased waste and the reduction of recycling. Students could not go to school, they could not proceed with their academic sessions and they were asked to stay back home. No business/school/office work and salaries.

During the covid-19 lockdown, cases of gender based violence were reported, teenage pregnancy, rape cases, cyber crimes, fake news was also rampant due to idleness.

The education system was debilitated, less manufacturing ability, limited international transactions in the aspect of export and import. The airlines also stopped working and could not pay their workers then sack some of their workers.

Periodically there are court cases where the defence for persons who were highly intoxicated by alcohol or illicit drugs, or both, and allegedly committed murder, is that they were unable to form an intention to murder. On face value this can be easily accepted. However, in my view it begs further examination in the cause of justice, especially for the victim's family. What is not mentioned as coming under consideration in the many reports I have read is that a person has a responsibility before the law not to self-cause their inability to know right from wrong by breaking a law - e.g. public drunkenness, and also not to self-cause their ability to deviate from the social norm - i.e. holding an intent not to murder - again by breaking a law.

The complexities and risks around this highly propagandized substance, have created a conundrum; one which is not only confusing the community, but putting our communities most important asset - our children - at risk.

It is vital that all protective factors are harnessed to best inform and equip our communities regarding the risks and harms of this not-so-benign substance.

If you were to read three evidence-based scientifically reviewed research and/or journal articles on the inherent social, community, mental, environment, health and productivity harms of Cannabis every single day for 10 years, you still would not have read 25% of the current research!

This is the 'jump in' space - get started, so you can make informed decisions about you and your family health and well-being.

This is called Yogic Crime Theory and is a combination of Yoga, Neuro Biology, genetics, Epigenetics, Behaviorism etc. and removes obnoxious programming from human minds, like removing virus infected programmes from Computers and leads towards positivity and a law abiding citizen.

Rural Women

Rural women play a key role in supporting their households and communities in achieving food and nutrition security, generating income, and improving rural livelihoods and overall well-being. They contribute to Agriculture and rural enterprises and fuel local and global economies. They help to Eradicate Rural poverty and improve the well being of their families

Most women, who work in rural areas are illiterate but limited access to credit, health care, and education are among the many challenges they face, which are further worsened by the global food and economic crises.

With the above knowledge, Asabe Shehu Yar’Adua Foundation (ASYARFS) took it upon herself to empower and enlighten rural women of their importance to the society and how they can play their roles in the economic development of the nation.

Gender Equality

Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right but a necessary foundation for a peaceful and sustainable world and even a prosperous world.

Over the last decades, there has been progress; more girls are going to school, fewer girls are forced into early marriage, more women are in positions of leadership.

Gender equality should be encouraged in our society for the growth of our society. Our girls/women should be trained and treated equally with the boys/men.

Gender equality also encourages a peaceful society i.e when the women are treated fairly there won’t be conflict in our society. It serves as a great relief to our society.

Gender equality has really helped us in the society, in the sense that the women are not jobless, they are not looked down on in the society. Our women should not be looked down on because they make the world at large i.e they dominate parts of the world.

Poverty is a disease that kills in society, it turns people into rags and kills their dreams especially the uneducated and the ignorant ones. The less privilege are mostly entitled to poverty.

Poverty is the state of not being able to afford the essential necessity of life.

Majority of the world population live in poverty especially those living in the indigenous communities and the rural areas of developing and under-developing countries.
