You have to admit that driving 5 Mph while eating 40 slices of pizza does hold up traffic just a little.

What the frig ?!

30 grams will be allowed for possession ?!

You can usually get 3-4 rolled joints from one gram, so 30 grams is a huge amount....

That's like just over an ounce per person (I think an ounce is 28 grams ?)


Holy Big Gulp and Zesty Cheese Doritos, Batman !

The last thing anyone wants when they're high is to have to go out and get more pot

30 grams is a little over an ounce. That may be a lot for an occasional smoker, but habitual smokers can go through an ounce in about a month or two. Maybe quicker depending on their smoking habits.

30 grams plus 4 plants growing in the backyard.... I won't be seeing any of my neighbours and friends leaving their houses for at least 5 days now.

The Liberal government has tabled legislation to end the prohibition on pot and regulate it for recreational use, checking off a major campaign promise from the 2015 campaign. The legislation allows people to possess up to 30 grams of dried or fresh cannabis and sets the minimum at 18 years of age, though provinces can set a higher legal age. Consumers can grow up to four plants at home or buy from a licensed retailer. Dried and fresh cannabis and cannabis oil will be available first, with edible products to become available later, according to information provided to reporters by Health Canada.



Liberals table legislation to legalize pot by July 2018


Well, in the words of my son, "Dad, we won the war on drugs!"



Only conservatives are against pot in the US.


Actually, I think it is about being against stupid, stoned idiotic people who literally force you to take their drugs secondhand, even if you don't do drugs, by smoking it in common public spaces and places.

I have literally NEVER met someone who has gotten a contact high and I've been in some pretty smokey rooms with people not getting that contact high. This is a myth.

We have a few friends who can easily smoke their way through a gram just sitting around the backyard bonfire having some cold bubblies on a Saturday night.

The majority of smokers we know are all people who grew up in the 60's 70's (same age as us). Old fart die-hard hippies enjoying the herb for their "old aching muscles and joints"... or so they say.




They're going to be ecstatic when they hear this.

Yes, it is lots to be taking to parties and sharing. As for growing your own plants, did you know you should be able to harvest a pound per plant?

I would be only if I could obtain the milder strains we enjoyed back then. The potency these days is causing major problems for middle-aged men, such as in heart attacks, which was reported on CTV this morning.

Blah blah blah, I can say the same about perfumes, colognes, hairspray and just about anything else, my suggestion is hold your breath when out in public.

You are asking for a pipe dream. The government, any government, will tax legal products. You can't get away from them and they are a necessary part of life to make your government function. Regulations are also important. Who wants to be buying pot that could have been sprayed with harmful chemicals? I know I don't want that.


I don't know but where I live its not much of a pipe dream. As of a month ago, I could by any flowers and edibles, hash, shatter, pre-rolled etc. As of this month, the health authority has banned the selling of edibles, so now only flowers and their derivatives are available. As it gets more and more regulated, less and less is available, and what is available gets more and more expensive.

In Arizona we are still only a medical state but we are allowed to buy up to 2 1/2oz every 14 days plus if you live out side of the 25 mile rule we can grow up to 12 plants at a time.

Not too bad for a conservative state.

True enough.

Neither hubby nor myself can handle the potent stuff that gets sold nowadays, I honestly don't know how our friends are able to keep smoking it at our age.

It's been a couple of decades since either of us have bothered with it.

But now I'm thinking if we can grow a plant or two of a nice mild strain for something like a simple tea drink or the odd puff once in a while to soothe a krick in the neck, I may just reconsider.

Look into cbd heavy strains, the high is very low compared to your high thc strains plus the benefits are great.

I think the problem is from these people taking blood pressure meds with their mmj, if memory serves me mmj lowers your blood pressure

Nowhere in your link matches your claim.

In fact, your link clearly states:


Mittleman admits he can’t explain exactly how pot could trigger a heart attack. It might be due to cannabis, the active ingredient of marijuana, or merely the smoke from a burning plant, he says. Smoking marijuana and tobacco both involve the latter, and both are now implicated in raising the risk of heart disease.


Keep on trying though.

Smoking anything will cause a pressure spike due to lack of oxygen.

For the first couple of minutes then the pressure drops lower, even lower prior to your first puff.

Smoking in public in Canada is heavily restricted, drugs or not. Its not like Seattle where you can walk around blowing it in people's faces. And will probably have the same laws as alcohol where you cant be intoxicated in public.
