Canada's House of Commons votes to legalize marijuana
that lady in the Giant 19 foot tall chair....ehhh wut?
this is how humans make decisions and laws
truth is stranger than fiction
And of course this is far from a comprehensive list of former prohibitionist cops and politicians who have suddenly found religion and done a potential very lucrative 180 on the pot legalization issue. If you can't beat em, then beat em down and steal all their stuff eh
That's madame speaker
Did she shrink?
Manute bol looks tiny in that thing
Annnnn.... She slumpimg
Anytime there's a frantic feeding frenzy at the through things can get a little ugly.
As Vancouver Kingsway's Don Davies said in his parliamentary address posted above, you have to admire their moral flexibilirty
I can just hear it now, 'dude, you realize you're smoking cop weed.That's not the dank.'
Too bad they couldn't call their top shelf indica The Baconator lol.
I'm actually hoping a couple of my fellow Canadians here that care about this issue give that a listen because Don Davies is the only Canadian politician that is speaking the truth about what is going on here with Trudeau's 'legalization'.
I have no interest in it but cool. Less government meddling the better.
Waiting for bootlickers to defend these guys. Fantino got hella rich putting these very people in jail. I hope people see he's disingenuous and his venture tanks.
Uuuuugh! I think the legal stuff is going to be very expensive so there will always be an illegal trade. And all their political and cop buddies pushing hard to punish weed that doesn't go through them. Disgusting.
Maybe this is just the pessimist in me, but from everything I've heard it sounds like there's going to be much more government meddling.
It would be great if they just said "okay pot is legal now, do what you want but don't sell to kids and don't drive high". But there are such strict rules I just see more police and court resources being applied to this. The cops now have the authority to enter a marijuana dispensary without warrant and search the place. It seems like this will be a cluster fuck.
I already don't like how the government has fucked around with this. There was a guy here who bought a couple of old fish plants to turn into marijuana grow ops and had the plan to open a dispensary, which would have created a bunch of good paying jobs for Newfoundlanders, but instead they handed the contract to some company in BC. That's not a free market.
The legal stuff, the 'cop weed' if you will, will be garbage as well. The legal supply for med patients that exists now (the same supply that will be available to the public in stores) is sprayed with over 20 government approved pesticides in the flowering phase and on dried bud/and or irradiated. It's poison that doesn't get you very high. Don't buy it folks.
As they say, friends don't let friends smoke LP weed
My October trip to Montreal is looking a lot better.
Doesn't really interest me much anymore, but good for them.
So our taxes will go down yes?
It's a start.
As much as I think Trudeau is a moron, this is a good thing.
Last I checked when something is legal it doesn't carry the potential for jail time.
Indeed. Fourteen years is a lot of jail time. Let us count the ways:
Just to review: on October 17 you will be able to drive to a government store and purchase up to thirty grams of low quality, chemical laden dried flower. You must then drive straight home with your purchase and place it in a well hidden lock box, away from children. You may then only consume it in the privacy of your home, as long as you own a tradditional single unit house with a yard surrounding it and no minors are present. If you live in a condo or an apartment building, you will need permission from your building strata or landlord. Any other cannabis related activity will be subject to, in the words of Justin Trudeau, "stricter harsher rules to punish more severely"...
The only winners in this regime will be law enforcement with their massive budget increases to enforce legalization, offshore international investors in the production monopoly from the Cayman Islands and elsewhere of the like, and a select group of well placed political insiders and retired police chiefs. That's legalization Canadian style folks. And all of this comes at a time when pot is already virtually legal in the major urban centers anyway. I currently have around 200 storefront dispensaries to choose from here in Vancouver for example, not to mention many more mail order and home delivery options. These provide a practically endless array of concentrated and edible forms, capsules, tinctures, suppositories ect as well as dried flower. Trudeau's 'legalization' regime naturally includes a massive police crackdown on all of these to enforce his cronies' new monopoly. It's really sickening.
thanks for the breakdown
it is only truly legalized if one is allowed to grow their own cannabis, other "legalizations" are mostly so others can get a piece of the pie in one way or another.
all the shock an awe over the fact that the fat cat's are getting their cut IMO isn't shocking, it should be expected.
yes it should
But some states in US allow you to grow your own and that cuts them clean out of the profit
that is what I was referring to
