The man is a f**king idiot anyway. He just pulled the July 1, 2018 out of his head w/o checking with anyone involved in it to see if all the necessary preliminary work could be done by then.
i would suggest that the faux pas occurred when trudeau made a public statement announcing a hard date.
... Gotta be prepared to follow through if yer gonna call yer shots
It already is in place.
Pot shops were popping up like crazy. In Regina the Police gave the 17 medical stores running to Feb 1st to close.
Most have, some haven't.
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.
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.
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.
Pot consumers paying less than $7 a gram, Statistics Canada survey finds
Cannabis is cheapest in Quebec and most expensive in Northwest Territories
$10 a gram? Plus Taxes?
These idiots are actually going to take up drug dealing.......and lose money.
The government sanctioned pot will more than likely be Monsanto Frankenpot and laced with Roundup and who knows what else.
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.
