Not long now Canada - and you can have your first LEGAL puff - but make sure you keep it on your property. Do cigarette smokers have this same rule eh? Must look this up. Will you buy from a dispensary or online from the government- because it does not look like they will be ready- NOW you will have to order it by mail. No thanks, I still would LIKE to see what I'm getting before I buy. Will you be an educated Cannabis consumer? I sure hope so- if you are not then your just being a dope' (not that kind) because YOU can read just about anything NOW on cannabis. The difference from when we started out & the information you can now find is phenomenal. I'm pleased for parents of seriously ill children especially.
I remarked to from one day to the next lately - it has me laughing. WTf is going on- who cares - Cannanbis will be legal in a couple of months! LESS charges will be laid- there is fear mongering going on about driving etc. my thoughts are:
if you are IMPAIRED and it is effecting YOUR driving abilities then DON't DO it. Duh.
How many people will try it for the first time?
And did I hear we are discussing dropping previous cannabis offences!
AMEN - I'm so proud of Canada& cannabis... almost.
I don't get one thing - Why are we NOT giving it to our seriously ILL medical patients who NEED it and are unable to GROW it themselves - due to physical restrictions... because I know for a fact- the government is happy to pay for OPIATES - WHICH are proven to KILL & we are already struggling with an opiate epidemic. Why!? My girlfriend is on disability - and has suffered most (if not all) of her life with pain, mental & physical -stemming from her serve physical disability- her Doctor thinks her cannabis should covered and so do I! I told her to apply and they declined her- stating they don't do it for anyone - OH well- times change! Figure it OUT cause YOUR killing my girlfriend and it is NOT right! Insurance companies will cover it, as I understand.. read about this:

BTW - I can't keep up, I don't know 'who owns what' anymore - so this is about the insurance. ;)
There will be fakers - such is life.. BUT that's not our problem- its the governments to figure out who is lying- surely with proof from Dr.s THERE are legitimate patients who can be easily addressed. My girlfriend takes the opiates given to her "because it's easier & they are free" HOW fucked up is that? You don't ride in her wheel chair so don't judge. You might not think this is a big deal - until your in pain and are given opiates- proven addictive & deadly- you don't have a choice- so in fact, the government is RESPONSIBLE for creating & maintaining & continuing the opiate addiction problem.
Is it because of Cost? Pills ARE cheap to make.
- How about ALL the major LP's having to GIVE a percentage of their cannabis to a program for proven seriously ill patients who can't grow it for themselves?
-How about setting up a facility where patients in wheelchairs could go in and HELP, volunteer -work with others- (good mentally & physically) work with the plants in exchange for free meds?
-How about the government guarantees a kickback$$ On fellow growers/patients hydro bills if they prove they help other patients for free? Eh? Am I dreaming here or what.. pushing it just a little - You never know with a NEW HYDRO board!
Come on Canda! Let's HELP out those WHO need our help.
Let's look after each other.
Also people think if you grow cannabis you should "give it for free" not understanding the cost to some who grow, seriously. Serious costs. I've said before I recommend you get help if you plan on growing - it will save you many mistakes, money, time and heart break - loss of medicine. It's not cheap to grow especially at start up & why should those who have worked VERY hard at their craft' be expected to give it for free? That's like asking ME to draw your logo for free - same thing. No. It's not how life works I get it - but we are not the ones making $$$$$$$tax money off of cannabis in a couple of months. You know what... I don't care about everyone I care bout my girlfriend right now - I told her to apply, she did, she had her D r.s support - she's no faker. and was declined- [they are not providing it for anyone] and now she is even more depressed knowing they happily pay for her opiates even tho it's cannabis that helps her be "happy".
Time to change the rules while we change the rules.
Time for me to get out into the garden with my pup(s) this was inspired by Ginger and friend with another pup & beautiful (inside&out) women of colour, you are not painted enough in the positive light that you are.
Tomorrow, I admit to how FRICKEN sexy I think Trudeau was & editorial cartoon from Crusty & I.
