Hey, just a moment. Don't go knocking coconut oil ! If you use it with kale it makes it that much easier to scrape it off the plate into the compost bin.

People aren't really bothered where they get their pot so my guess is if there is not enough to go round legally then street dealers will still have a lucrative market

Default Re: Cannabis

I don't have an issue with pot itself, I do have an issue with people smoking in a workplace that is safety sensitive which is far too common in Canada where drug testing tends to be non-existent.

In my job for example in the US, one is tested for both alcohol and drugs on hire and throughout employment on a random unannounced basis, where in Canada the only time I see it done is if an accident has occurred.

I have a hard enough time remembering to do things at work when I'm sober. God knows what it would be like coming to work high on weed. I'd probably just stare at my screen all morning.

Probably not weed, but these cashiers (not customers) appear to be high on something

The age to buy pot in BC was released earlier today. 19 years of age.

I better invest in a Kebab van to make way for all the stoners with the munchies..

Public and private stores to sell recreational pot in B.C., with 19 as the purchasing age - British Columbia - CBC News
