    Canada Has Gone Insane Or To Pot So To Speak

    Yeah Canada has just legalized recreational pot and it is supposed to go into effect in 8 to 12 weeks. I guess our Canadians friends on ARP will be really stoned now as if they aren't already.

    Watch the collective IQ of the country drop like a rock. It's akin to committing national suicide if you ask me. Unbelievable. Geez what idiots they are for passing that bill. Thank you, thank you very much

    Canada has become the biggest country in the world to fully legalize recreational marijuana.

    The Senate passed Bill C-45 — otherwise known as the Cannabis Act — with a vote of 52-29. This paves the way for a billion-dollar industry to finally begin flourishing.

    Once the law goes into effect in the next 8 to 12 weeks, Canadians will be allowed to purchase recreational marijuana legally from government-regulated retailers.

    Citizens will also be able to carry up to 30 grams of cannabis, grow four plants in their homes, and create their own edibles in the comfort of their homes.

    "I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."
    Sen. Barry Goldwater

    As if being socialist isn't enough, now they have to be stoner brains too. The two do go hand in hand well.

    Sometimes I sit and think maybe Glenn should smoke some. Maybe he'd be more relaxed. Lol.

    Hopefully it will cause them to eat more, and help support our American farmers.

    What is funny about pot laws to me is that they are inherently socialist, yet conservatives in the US tend to support such regulations more so than liberals. Especially when you compare pot to alcohol, I think it is obvious that the only reason to have pot illegal is that it is "bad for society." People who drink, get up, go out, get in fights, drive etc... potheads, well they mostly just sit there.

    I personally have a libertarian view on drugs, as in, I believe a person has a right to destroy their own life. So I take that in consideration regarding what substances should be illegal, criminalized etc.

    Canada is jumping on this wagon and will be miles ahead of the US. Pot is good business and creates countless good paying jobs. Now they're going to build the infrastructure to supply pot to people who want it and they will dominate this industry.

    Meanwhile here in the US people are going to suffer and die from opioid addiction because the big pharmaceutical industry wants to keep pot illegal. And of course many more Americans will die from alcoholism too which is a lot more addictive and easier to die from.

    Glen if your happy with the way things are then feel free to keep popping pills and drink yourself to death. Don't go around judging people who aren't willing to be fooled by the big pharmaceutical industry who wants to keep us hooked on their highly addictive products.

    Funny Glen, some US states beat us to it...

    Servicing legal medical grow op equipment has become a large part of my workload. I have been very impressed by the professionalism of the industry. I'm not sure I can share pictures of the facilities, but it blows me away how high tech they are.

    It is not some dudes in the bush or their garage's growing some plants. The level of Health Canada scrutiny of the industry is very high (haha).

    I do worry pot is a gateway drug and I wouldn't want my kids smoking. But, if they do, now they won't be buying from a drug dealer and they'll be less likely to try and hide what they are doing.

    For reference, I don't drink, smoke etc. The only drug I use is insulin (had that bad habit since 10 yo).

    Drugs poison your mind, alcohol and THC are drugs that poison your mind. The feeling you get from drugs, is your body reacting to being poisoned....period!

    Shouldn't we be promoting drug abstinence for a healthy and productive society?

    As a Conservative, I do believe in the use of medical hippie lettuce, but not recreational use. I believe that people are dumb enough...especially todays youth, and this only makes them dumber, lazier, and fatter.
