Pot was legalized federally in Canada as of October 17th. Apparently that makes us one of only a few countries in the world to do so.
It is pretty rich to see how the elite jumped into the business, including a former provincial premier or two, and the former police chief of Toronto, etc.
Growing at home is legal (only indoors, and only 3 or 4 plants, but banned provincially in Manitoba.
Now you can buy weed online, and have it delivered by Canada post. The large operations seem to be more expensive than the black market (so I hear, I don’t enjoy weed), but they may have an edge in consistency of product.
But, nobody’s going crazy any more than before, I imagine police won’t know what to do with their free time. For a while.
Unfortunately I hear the US feds are taking a hard line, declaring shareholders or employees of pot companies permanently inadmissible, same as anyone who admits to having ever partaken.
It’s interesting to see the shift anyways.
