On October 17, Cannabis will be legal for recreational use in Canada. While many of us tried Cannabis in the 60's and 70's, some of us wonder if it's time to re-new our acquaintance. In this interview I pose questions about the future of Cannabis in Canada to Luka Petkovich of Greencamp. Luka works for a website that (among other things) specializes in mapping the medical uses of Cannabis to the appropriate products and suppliers.
So, what are the medical uses of Cannabis? Would I be better off procuring a medical prescription rather than simply buying it without a prescription? What is the difference between THC and CBD? Will Canada continue to be a world leader on the Cannabis front? These and other questions are posed about the future of Cannabis in Canada. I think you will be surprised, enlightened and perhaps even excited by the answers Luka provides below.
Colombia is quickly becoming an attractive new destination for independent travellers! You can easily book hotels and flights using your favourite online apps. Even retirement specialists are touting Medellin (pronounced Med-e-jeen) as the next, best new place to retire.
Altogether, we spent 6 nights in Cartagena, 5 nights in Tolu (for the beach), and 3 nights in Medellin. This was our first trip to South America. On our Pulmantur cruise we set sail from Cartagena and visited Curacao, Bonaire, Aruba and Panama, returning to Cartagena after 7 nights. In total, our trip was 21 nights plus a night on either end in Montreal close to the airport.

It's been a while since Inspiring Boomer's last interview with Irene Yarkoni, owner of The Single Option. Irene has over 20 years of experience helping singles (including Boomers!) find their match. She has witnessed the proliferation of online dating sites like Tinder. However, when it comes to relationships, some things never change! According to Irene, Boomers "value authentic personal communication" and Irene's tried and true methods are still arguably the best path to finding your ideal match. If you are single, looking for a partner in life, and lucky enough to live in or near Ottawa, then you owe it to yourself to check out The Single Option. But even if you don't live anywhere near Ottawa, Irene provides some excellent advice for singles in this interview. And, there are a lot of single Boomers in Canada: Almost 2.5 Million!
