Ive always felt that the people who are adamantly against weed are the very people who felt left out thru out their young adulthood watching all the other kids having fun, going to parties, drinking beer, dating, etc.

Jeff Session? Looooserrrr who stayed home on Friday nights.

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.


No. It is not. I have tested it many times in high school. We hot-boxed a car with girls who didnt smoke and their eyes turned as red as ours and started acting up (laughing hysterically). It works, but has to be in a small containment.

Pretty sure he's still hiding in south America though.


I didn't realize he was in South America... last I heard he was hiding out in Holland, but that was many years ago.

Surely now all these ridiculous charges will be dropped, it may take a few years but I just don't see how the government can justify the witch hunt any longer ?

I'm going to disagree with you, I know many people who are against it and still party like they are still in high school.

I didn't mean just against legalization, but ones who are ADAMANTLY against it because they hate it for all the wrong reasons.

Most likely a placebo effect.

The one thing I've been missing from this whole thing is how this will legalise industrial hemp production, making way for a WHOLE NEW set of industries in Canada.

Good point...and curious that it has not been addressed. However, you can already buy hemp products...seeds, hats, clothing. Just a matter of mainstreaming it.

That's what I thought, BUT, it's a practising medicine without a license charge, which is technically still valid I believe.

I'll have to follow up with another of my colleagues to see what's going on really, as I haven't spoken nor heard of rick for a few years now.

That is propaganda. Hemp has been a legal industry in Canada for decades. It requires a license but, so does everything. It was to prevent people from growing pot.

If you ever fail a drug test use the whole contact high excuse and let us know how that turns out for you.

Exhaled smoke has close to zero thc in it, if I can find the study I will post it but they had a few people sit in a room for 3 hours with a couple of smokers and if I remember correctly the non smokers did have trace amounts of thc in their system it was still far below the fail levels for most jobs.

I would imagine that if you had some peeps smoking a half oz in a unvented area then maybe but then again most people would be to high after smoking half of that in one sitting.

Congrats to your country.Even though I don't smoke it , its your darn right to decide what you do with your body not the gov't as long as it doesn't hurt others.

I am certainly a liberal, and champion any policy that serves public good and is reasonably enforceable. Thus, how can I possibly support the War on Drugs which is an abject failure in every sense? I hate to break it to those who think liberals are the only ones that use drugs, but that is an utter fallacy. I did plenty when young and so did my friends, almost all who are staunch conservatives. But, believe me, they could hold their own with anybody, anywhere. For that matter, ask good old Rush Limbaugh who had a good run himself. Recreational drug use crosses all social boundaries. That's the reality.
