As for your's truly, I'll double-look left and right even at green lights for the next few weeks =:)


Indeed.... Winnipeg's 1st toking and driving ticket issued 1 hour into legalization

Ah, Winnipeg. Staying classy as always... :^)

UNOFFICIAL: With the recently added job perks, Canadian firefighters' unions are ready to slash down their members' wages

(note: Canadian firefighters apparently lacking the gumption to give on-the-job interviews to the press while under the influence, this old but golden video of a willing San Diego, CA firefighter has been used for illustrative purposes)

Makes sense, and you're not alone to think that. “Driving under the influence of marijuana is extremely dangerous,” Property Casualty Insurers Association of America senior vice president Robert Gordon says. "In fact, driving under the influence of marijuana should be viewed with the same risks as drunk or distracted driving. When you’re high, it can impair your judgment, motor coordination and reaction time."

I'm glad the various canadian jurisdictions are taking the risks of stoned driving as seriously as drunk and/or distracted driving (in addition to secondary smoke nuisance problems in public places), especially as each of them compound the overall risks many times when they are simultaneously present.

Gordon > I once thought U.S. alcohol laws with individual state and county differences right down to neighborhood wet/dry precincts and no bar so many feet from a church were complicated, but it looks like marijuana legalization also has quite a labyrinthic set of caveats.
And you probably have left schools out of the picture regarding these "no bars in churches' vicinity" laws ! While driving with friends through north-eastern states for an orienteering competition many years ago, a passenger jokingly suggested we drink a sip of beer each time we crossed a church along the way. These being so flabbergastingly numerous and since we intended to have a competitive chance upon arrival while intending at all costs to avoid road accidents, "everlasting hellfire condamnations" and law enforcement problems, we were glad to have left home north of the 45th latitude any trace element of alcoholic beverage: we juat had a good lagh at the joke and urged the aforementioned passenger to pull out another (less life-theathening) joke from his wicked mind.

Uruguay, and this year Canada, are the first countries to fully legalize cannabis. I don't know yet how successful Uruguay's experiment has been, but I'm confident Canada's latest "Citizen Science" experiment (lol) on the legalization of this soft recreational substance will be a success (which will stomp on territory organized crime was too happy to exploit) as it tackles the remaining legal and public health "known unknowns" issues along the next months and years.

Alcohol, 'weed' and cell phone use while driving.

Yes, and one way bars circumvent the archaic rule here is by measuring the distance from corner to corner and down the street, rather than as the crow flies, diagonally, thus ensuring a walking distance beyond the stipulated length.

Sorry folks, we've run out

Hmmm...

If the USA legalizes the growing of Marijuana for export. The American tobacco companies will make great profits. Our trade imbalance will be reduced. And...

If Canada places tariffs on imported marijuana. Well, they will also make money.

Seems like a win, win, win situation ;)

I was reading something recently about the question as to whether the liquor industry was interested in getting into legalized marijuana, and the story basically said, at least for this one large company, that they were more concerned about getting alcohol consumption back up to 1970's levels, as apparently it's been steadily declining.

They want it back to 1970's level? Well, 1970's prices would be a good way to start. :-)

Found the article -

More likely, as I have posted, that it would be Big Tobacco.

They have the expertise and plenty of resources in growing a 'weed' ;)

Yes, I agree; I think the tobacco industry is more prepared to get into weeds.
