“MONTREAL — Canada on Wednesday became the first major world economy to legalize recreational marijuana, beginning a national experiment that will alter the country’s social, cultural and economic fabric, and present the nation with its biggest public policy challenge in decades.
Across the country, as government pot retailers opened from Newfoundland to British Columbia, jubilant Canadians waited for hours in line to buy the first state-approved joints. For many, it was a seminal moment, akin to the ending of Prohibition in the United States in the 1930s.
It was also an unlikely unifier, coming at a time when Canada has been buffeted by bruising trade talks with the United States and has seen its prime minister, Justin Trudeau, repeatedly ridiculed by President Trump. Canada is the second country in the world, after Uruguay, to legalize marijuana.
Under Canada’s new federal cannabis act, adults will be allowed to possess, carry and share with other adults up to 30 grams of dried cannabis, enough to roll roughly 60 regular-size joints. They will also be permitted a maximum of four homegrown marijuana plants per household in most provinces.”
Once again…Canada proves itself to be somewhat better, than the Prison States of America.
…Cant have sex, here in the PSA…but wouldn’t it be nice to freely get a buzz, to take off the stress?…
…Nope!…That’s getting way too much fun and enjoyment out of life, for the social wardens!
…They want our lives to be as absolutely miserable, as they can possibly make them.
…I’m happy for Canada, and this monumental step, however…
We’ll continue fighting the puritanical, prudish, blood sucking, life extinguishing, killers of all good meaning in life, down here.
