New Brunswick is adding illegal cannabis to the list of activities that can be reported for investigation.

According to the government, it would be an amendment to the Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act.

“The federal decriminalizing of cannabis has limited our ability to effectively use this legislation when dealing with properties engaged in illegal cannabis-related activities,” said Public Safety Minister Carl Urquhart in a media release.

Minoan treasures found on Libyan Sea island: experts

  Minoan treasures found on Libyan Sea island: experts Archaeologists in Greece have located a "major treasure" of Minoan origin in a Bronze Age settlement on a small island in the Libyan Sea, the culture ministry said Friday. A team excavating on the tiny island of Chrysi south of Crete for over a decade have unearthed a 3,800-year-old Bronze Age compound containing gold jewels, glass beads and the remains of bronze talents, the common unit of value of ancient Greece. Some of the beads are of Egyptian origin, the culture ministry said in a statement.

“This amendment would ensure the continued provision of a civil legal process to shut down such properties.”

The purpose of the safer communities legislation, according to the province, is to protect against the harmful effects of specified illegal activities including the use of properties for selling illegal drugs.

Prior to October 2018, cannabis was included in the legislation.

Cannabis remains a regulated commodity under federal legislation. The Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act currently covers other regulated commodities and activities, such as the unlawful sale of liquor and illegal gaming.

Ancient Greek Settlement With Purple-Producing Shells and Carved Fish Tanks Discovered on Tiny Island

  Ancient Greek Settlement With Purple-Producing Shells and Carved Fish Tanks Discovered on Tiny Island The site would have been involved in the craft production of purple dye, an extremely expensive and highly prized commodity, in the Late Minoan period circa 1800 to 1500 BCE. In addition to the large quantities of shells found at the site, archaeologists unearthed a treasure trove of valuable objects, including a gold ring, a gold bracelet and dozens of beads made from gold, silver, bronze, and maple. Three copper vases, handfuls of glass beads made from amethyst, lapis, corneal stone and "Egyptian blue," and one seal made of agate were also found during the excavation.

The proposed amendment would add to the definition of "specified use" the possession, consumption, purchase, sale, distribution or cultivation of cannabis in contravention of federal legislation.

“We are concerned about illegal cannabis-related activities,” said Urquhart.

“This amendment will ensure that residents who have concerns regarding these activities can make a confidential complaint for investigation.”

According to the government, the Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act provides for a confidential complaint-driven process which holds both commercial and residential property owners and their tenants accountable for specific illegal activities that have been proven to be habitually occurring and have adversely affected the health, safety or security of any individual or group in a community or neighbourhood.

It targets and, if necessary, shuts down properties, including lands, through a civil legal process.

In the Kingdom of Jordan, the rock city is the ultimate highlight of any trip. Goose bumps already have access to the treasure. Whether on foot or in a carriage, every Petra tourist without exception has to go through the Sik.
