OK, this one is the obvious response:

Make pot, not war.
2003-09-20 06:07:02 PM  
What else are they going to do with the bases? Now we know why the Canadians have the best MRE's.
2003-09-20 06:07:26 PM  
Mmmm... Herbs...
2003-09-20 06:07:27 PM  
Hmm, now that's a new way of getting funding for our military. It needs all the money it can get.

This is called the "Smiling Cat Bong". Why does it look Yoda is waiting for you to suck Canadian Military Grade Bong Water out of his arse.

someone's really dumb enough to plant that much nuggets on/near a military base? d'oh!
2003-09-20 06:57:13 PM  
they should just hold off until all the useless pot smokers (98% of them) come to raid the fields.. then engulf them and the pot in napalm.
2003-09-20 06:57:14 PM  
thought the same thing aerosquid.

2003-09-20 07:02:31 PM  
Stupid headline.
2003-09-20 07:02:50 PM  
any chance the stuff was growing wild. they call it "weed" for a reason...
2003-09-20 07:05:46 PM  
Americans need to start growing coca plants on military bases. Or maybe having Muslims on crack is a bad idea.

"Police estimate a significant portion of the cannabis is exported to the neighbouring United States, where its price easily doubles once it crosses the border."

That's why I'm glad to live in Canada, where the pot is half the price and twice the strength.

"Pot plantations, once hidden deep in the Canadian wilderness, have spread over the last decade to semi-rural and even urban areas."

Instead of "Swing Low", we'd sing "Ina Gadda Da Vida" on our plantations eh.

Hello_Kthullu: Asian gangs are hippies now?
2003-09-20 07:54:35 PM  
Woo HOO!

2003-09-20 08:09:33 PM  
What? Pot is half as expensive in canada? the cheapest I'v ever seen far an 1/8 was 35$, but he was a good friend
2003-09-20 08:11:03 PM  
to make a remark to say only hippies smoke pot is probably the least accurate liche out there. if theres a grow op out here (vancouv), it ussually either h.a., or asian gangs. otherwise other dealers who have ops in their houses.
2003-09-20 08:19:27 PM  
What the hell else is our military going to do other than sit around and smoke weed? Fight? Yeah... right!

2003-09-20 08:21:59 PM  
edmon....$35 for an 1/8th....you re crazy to pay that, they go for about $25, and from good friends about $10.

looks like your "good friend" ripped you off.
2003-09-20 08:26:19 PM  
I have yet to pay for 'it'....but i dont do it...i swear, now where are those twinkies
2003-09-20 08:27:48 PM  
If the Canadian military is going to be taken seriously they need to get rid of the pot plants. What they need is meth labs! Crank! Psychotic paranoia + hallucinations + weapons = fun time !
2003-09-20 08:28:13 PM  
Here where I live it's 40 an eighth but you can get an ounce of good stuff for 220 or an ounce of really good stuff for 250 or an ounce of knock you onto your ass stuff for 300.

noahs_fark nice bong. I took hits of a gun bong that looked almost exactly like that one a coupla times. It had good hits too, must better then was expected.
2003-09-20 08:30:32 PM  
Ha when will the canadians learn? The CIA has been funding the military by selling crack cocaine for ages, does canada really think they can compete on a pot funded military budget.
2003-09-20 08:32:57 PM  
New York - 1/8 of good ish goes for usually about $45. Be grateful you people don't live here.
2003-09-20 08:35:08 PM  

thats $45 US which is about $7000 CDN, give or take a dollar
2003-09-20 08:36:01 PM  

not if they keep busting their crops
2003-09-20 08:49:15 PM  
$45 in DC as well. Don't ask me how I know that.
2003-09-20 08:53:03 PM  
This bust is nothin'. I live in Northern California and a few days ago the cops busted a garden with over 34,000 plants. They ended up shooting and killing a couple guys, too. The plants would have only needed about a month to three weeks before they were fully mature. Oh well, at least most of the growers on site were able to escape (they estimate 10 to 12 other people).
2003-09-20 08:54:12 PM  
35 for 1/8 of good stuff is standard in Ontario. 30 bucks if it's your buddy selling it to you. The government pot is only 5 bucks a gram. They make cookies with 2 grams that knock you on your ass for only 15 bucks. All Toronto people should get a pot card and go to the Care Centre. Half price pot and it's good! High THC and no unnecessary chemicals, very clean high but if you like those weird body buzzes caused by who knows what they add, you won't like this stuff.
Of course, you can always buy buddy's homegrown for 45-50 bucks a quarter but I'll pass.
2003-09-20 09:00:06 PM  
this deserves a sad tag.... :( Lol!
2003-09-20 09:01:28 PM  
If only it wasn't illegal, if I didn't get paranoid when using it, and if it didn't burn my throat... I'd love to smoke it.

I love the smell of pot. Haven't touched it since the early '80s. I didn't like the paranoia that went with it.

Cultivating the boo downrange seems a result of too much Moosehead. But what can one expect from a defense force in an obscure outpost of the mighty British Commonwealth? Guess it keeps the seperatist frogs from doing much beyond bilingualating the majority.

75$ USD an eighth, its around 30$ CDN an eighth or about 20$ USD
2003-09-21 03:19:18 AM  
"Whoa there's a military base in Canada, let alone Quebec!"

Many cities in Canada were founded as military bases, thus the reason so many cities start with Fort Saskatchewan, Fort Nelson, etc in Canada. Naturally however they don't all have military bases anymore, as artillery ranges inside cities isn't a welcome thing. However in most of the Western cities it is a daily sight to see military vehicles driving around wasting taxpayers money.

Any of you Americans ever see army vehicles driving around your cities often?

Hello_Kthullu "No genius.. but only a hippy would be bright enough to plant shiat on an artilary range."

That's actualy a very good place to grow it. Simply wait for a time yo know there isn't any shooting (either by casing the range, or asking a stoner soldier), plant it, and come back in a few months to harvest. Pot on an artillery range is also less likely to be stumbled across by the public or law enforcement.

Sure it's a little risky, but for $1mil you'd be suprised what people would do. Look at Fear Factor, they do that for $50k.

I bet it was a range control officer who planted it. After all, he's the one who controls who goes where on the range.
