Hope so, we'll see. AMLO may be able to pull it off. We really need medical cannabis clinics, docs, and research as well as recreational approval. Fingers crossed.

It's not that easy immigrating to Canada. Legally.

There's a great meme going around - "Canada legalizes marijuana today to cope with having to live next to the US"

Word.

LOL! Too bad they didn't get around to it while renegotiating Nafta 2. Since Freeland was regularly bringing Lighthizer (sp?) cookies and maple syrup, it would have been hilarious to have plied him with special brownies.

Colorado and Washington State made pot legal in 2013. And guess what happened to our professional football teams?  We both went to the Super Bowl the following year and perhaps because the Washington Pot was better, The Seattle Seahawks beat the Colorado team.

Oh and it is all over the news in WA and BC, that just because pot is legal on both sides of the border, we are not allowed to bring any over the boarder from Washington to British Columbia or visa versa because one side of the boarder is controlled by the US Federal Government which still finds pot illegal.

I remember that in the 60's, we Seattle pot heads all thought that there was nothing  better than BC bud and we would all drive north over the boarder and buy the pot (illegally) in BC and drive it back over the boarder. I guess in those days the cars were not checked closely because no one ever got caught, or even talked about it being dangerous to do so.

Why would they do that when they can go to California, Nevada, Colorado, Washington, etc., etc?

And besides, the US would still be left with Trump, so no improvement.

All the drunks did not move to Canada during prohibition, not even hard core alcoholics.

The firsr driving while toking ticket was issued shortly after the legalization and it's 600 something bux! Hahaha some said they think it was done on purpose so it would become a collectors item and increase in value.

As I walked the dog there was a certain scent wafting through the hood, closet doors suddenly slammed wide open. I'll bar the doors and sit it out as this reefer madness takes hold. Glad I stocked up on Halloween treats early.
Look out Costco here they come, oh the depravity

Anyone care to bet that pot will be taxed heavily like booze??? More income for the state to squander or pay for Mr. T's ducky socks...

And it isn't taxed heavily in the "legal" states?

I thought it was! Didn't Colorado finance a year of public education on the tax from the first year of legal weed sales? I read something like that a few years ago.

MountainMama will know.

I know that the pot sold in the state of WA is taxed at a very high rate. How high? I don't know. But the taxes brought in have been very helpful. I fully expect that Canada will and should do the same.

Pete, it's worse (and simpler) than you think! Forget about B.C., don't even press your luck transporting any amount of marijuana between the U.S. west coast states that have already legalized use and possession. Import/export, even for personal use, is still illegal in each and every one of 'em. Blackeye
