I have an invite to an ACLU event at a local brewpub. First 50 to sign up get a free pint. No handwringing detected...

Can we just legalize, regulator, and tax this stuff everywhere soon?

The cops will start sending underage people to hang out at locations like this and then arrest anyone offering them weed. The best part is that the taxes on legal weed will pay the cost of this sort of enforcement. The wild west didn't last forever and neither will this.

as someone unimpressed with the way the government has handled weed thus far, I am not about to help them cash in on it now.

basically disgusted to see ex chief of police Julian Fantino for example working with marijuana company after spending a lifetime bashing heads of people smoking joints.

you can have weed mailed to you in Canada or go down the street to a shop.  no need for the government, but sure let them have their fun.

at least Doug Ford (Trump Lite) has the sense to let small dispensaries sell it, unlike the previous government that wanted a monopoly.

government pisses me off when they "legalize" shiat.  legalize gambling but only if the government is the "house".  legalize weed but only if the government is the dealer.

fark you.

Depends on the province.  Alberta has private weed stores, and there will be a lot more of them than in Ontario.  And its also legal to grow your own here.  The major black market will be targeting underage kids.

Vancouver Police Department Sgt. Jason Robillard said the practice of businesses giving away free cannabis in public is currently illegal in the City of Vancouver.

Enforce the law, or change it.  But stop inventing imaginary problems to worry about.

We cant grow in MD, but they've got such a selection of strains legally available that I really don't need to.  The market is saturated but prices are still a bit high, but I got my license, so legal.

Growing will be legal everywhere (although Manitoba and Quebec are trying to nix it).

"which industry experts say is a sure sign of an illicit market rebound post-legalization "

Huh? How can legal sellers offering free pot (which is still illegal ATM) indicate an "illicit market rebound post-legalization"????

I think those two reporters accepted the free pot offer.

I offer free pot to friends and family when they come to visit. One good plant per season is way more than I will smoke. I have three this season. I started six seeds; all of them sprouted, and all of them female. I gave three of them away. Gonna be a really fat year.

YMMV

I worry this will be used as an excuse to further delay, at least here in Ontario.  Just a little over 2 months 'til Oct. 17, and this change by Dougie must be throwing a wrench into the works.  The LCBO created a corporation (Ontario Cannabis Stores), announced a president, must have hired some staff, was actively siting store locations (40 at first, 180 by 2010 if I recall). Perhaps leases and contracts signed.  What happens to that system?

Don't get me wrong.  I don't like Dougie, but I like this move.  Maybe he'll get fed up with the costs and confusion, even if self-generated, and say "F! it!  If you sell cigs or alcohol now you can just add cannabis to your inventory." and "If you grow or sell cannabis now, carry on!".
