    Default Proposed Federal Marijuana Legislation Unvailed

    http://globalnews.ca/news/3377577/ma...cement-canada/

    "The new legislation would establish a “strict legal framework” for the production, sale, distribution and possession of pot, and make it a specific criminal offence to sell cannabis to a minor. Adults over 18 would be allowed to possess up to 30 grams of dried cannabis or its equivalent in public, share up to 30 grams of dried cannabis with other adults and buy cannabis or cannabis oil from a provincially regulated retailer. They would also be permitted to grow up to four plants per resident for personal use, as well as make legal cannabis-containing products at home."

    I think this strikes a good balance of convenience and reasonable use...

    I hope this passes!

    I would like to know what "equivalent" is going to look like (yield of concentrates can vary)

    Would current medical regulations supersede for people in that program? (Currently you can carry around one month's worth and most prescriptions are at least 1g/day)

    Also will they be looking at legalizing and regulating solvent based extracts? (ie. shatter)

    Provincially regulated retail could become a fucking nightmare (look at how the old liquor nonsense use to be like)

    What does this mean for current LP's? Are their evaluations about to drop off a cliff with the market opening up? Will there be protectionism measures put in place with this provincially regulated nonsense? How much red tape will there be for small business trying to break into this world? Will things be in place so retail can be open, fully licensed by day one of legalization?

    So many questions!

    Calling it now though, fun, good tasting pot products will be banned asap (just like flavoured tobacco... cause only children like things that taste good!)

    It will pass. It has to. The liberals have spent so much time on it, and it was key in their platform. The NDP also supports legislation.

    Fair enough assessment. I can see a real problem with allowing people to make edibles in their home. The moment a child gets their hands on it and the media covers it, people will be screaming for change. (Even though it was really the parent's responsibility to keep it from happening, we're very much a hand-hold society)

    The problem is that everyone trumpeting taxes and getting rid of organized crime are wrong.

    The tax revenue is way overstated. Just like black market tobacco sales, there will still be plenty of people buying illegally.

    Its fucking ridiculous though that the legal age is 18, that is complete bullshit.

    It maybe overstated (maybe), but it's an entire new tax revenue source. There was zero taxes from it before, now there will be some... better than nothing.

    I agree on the age, it should be older.

    4 people of legal age, I assume.

    Yep. While I am completely against legalization, at least if they are going to do it they should do it inline with the nedical communities recommendations.

    Of course, alcohol should be too, but I digress.

    Liberals are clearly gunning for the youth vote for this.

    Jeebus, 30 grams at the strength they grow nowadays is more than I was thinking. That could do a block party.

    So I might as well ask here on Beyond now... Wheres the best place to get hydroponics?

    Just checked some other articles and they all say per residence. Looks like typo in the article in this thread.

    Not to mention if you want to create topicals/edibles/concentrates/etc you want to do that in bulk, cause of the time commitment and loss associated with it

    It starts out all nice and divine but it will lead you down a dark path. Once you're hooked on the body there's no turning back!

    I'm also very curious about how LP's are going to be incorporated in this new deal. I personally was under the assumption that there will be additional taxs on the regular variety vs only 5% gst on the medical grade mj. So ultimately if you qualify for medical mj it would still be your preferred choice due to additional taxes? I'm not positive but it would make more sense.

    I'm completely against others telling others what they can and cannot do with their own bodies.

    Sorry, I was thinking you were saying that it was bull shit the age limit was 18 instead of something younger haha

    That said, 18 sounds fine to me... once you finish high school, you should be able to drink, fuck, and do as many drugs as you want
