Liberals to announce marijuana will be legal by July 1, 2018

I suppose that's happening because recreational cannabis is still illegal to sell.

It's looking increasingly doubtful that pot legalization is going to be brought out before the end of next year, maybe longer if the powers that be have their way. this is what happens when Justin mindlessly opens his mouth and makes big bold announcements with no plan or any facts, then shrinks back into the shadows and declares that it's up to everyone else to figure out the details as he has a persistent habit of doing. Just not ready...still...

Marijuana Legalization Timeline Under Pressure As Senate Conservatives Balk

Expedient marijuana legalization roll-out may not happen this summer, if Senate Conservatives get their way. A proposed law covering cannabis impaired driving rules has been delayed for at least two months in Parliament, with Conservatives arguing legalization should be postponed until year’s end. If enacted, that would throw a soaking wet quilt on the cannabis sector—if only in the short-term.

The sticking point appears to be Bill C-46. If you recall, the Liberal government introduced the aforementioned Bill at the same time it introduced Bill C-45—the legislation which would legalize the sale of cannabis in Canada. Bill C-46 was introduced to quell inadequate legal frameworks surrounding cannabis-induced impaired driving. Despite months of review and dozens of expert witness consultation, the Senate apparently requires more time. “We will go at C-46 with more hearings in May… with the intention of sending the legislation to the Senate for a third reading in June”, according to vice-president of the steering committee, Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu.


Quebec calls for one-year delay on legal marijuana

A motion introduced by the Coalition Avenir Quebec and supported by the Liberals and the PQ called for the date of legalization to be moved to July 1, 2019.

“We're asking for a delay of one year. Right now, we're not ready. We're not ready for such an important change in our society,” said CAQ leader Francois Legault.


Canada Marijuana Legalization: Police Services Ask Feds To Postpone July 2018 Start Date

Canada's police services say there is zero chance they will be ready to enforce new laws for legalized pot by next summer.

If the government doesn't postpone the start date there will be a window of six months to a year when police aren't fully ready, which will allow organized crime to flourish, said OPP deputy commissioner for investigations and organized crime Rick Barnum.

You live on the West coast and think you'll have any issues with finding some weed?

... You really need to get out a bit more

The cops won't be ready for a year? Perfect. I'll recover my standing water losses by growing weed on the mighty slough shores.

Kicking this dumb law to the curb is about the only thing this nitwit is getting right. The revenue stream will be good for Canada, but not enough to save us from all his other spending shenanigans.

Investors have dropped 100s of millions into July first.

They are already in full production growing weed to be ready for July 1st.

Anything later will cause big layoffs and shut downs.

Most have, some haven't.

Not in B.C. apparently. They need a test that will give a numerical reading as to how stoned. Just being stoned isn't good enough.

Decriminalization was a threat so they took the control road as tyrants tend to take.

Why don't you just STFU and give us the blow by blow account of the sticky gear shift incident. A lot of the Newbies on here probably haven't heard it and it would be better if you related it to them than if I do.

Meh, that's a little over the top. Decriminalization may be good for the end user but it's f*cking fantastic for those criminal enterprises who control the vast bulk of it's production and sale. In the end, decriminalization for simple possession probably does more harm than good.
The last time the Liberals wussed out on legalization and went the decrim route instead, the price of weed took a pretty hefty jump.

No. Road safety is too important.

Nothing will change out here in the boonies, Cap. We'll still visit our neighbors for a sample or two of the latest crop just as we've been doing for decades now. It is very reassuring to know your grower, be able to visit their grow-up and know that the product you are partaking of is untainted by some of the substances that find their way into pot in the cities. I also suspect the quality of product under government control may prove to be somewhat less than what is available locally.

The government sanctioned pot will more than likely be Monsanto Frankenpot and laced with Roundup and who knows what else.

No, it won't. You're such an idiot.

The government does not kill off the people that pay them taxes. But people like you, who are a financial drain, are fair game. Watch for the black choppers over Nakusp, Cliffy.

These idiots are actually going to take up drug dealing.......and lose money.

They most certainly are, Colpy. Though those figures for a gram don't hold up here in my neck of the woods where an ounce goes at the low end for $100, at the high for $150 and they are good ounces. I suspect the same applies to many rural areas in the country. Would not be surprised to hear the survey was conducted in urban areas.

Well I doubt they would go that far, Cliffy. I simply don't believe the high from government pot will match that of local product. But that could be my natural distrust of this government.
