Cannabis is legal in Canada — here’s what you need to know
https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/marijuana-faq-legalization-need-to-know-1.4862207
“Recreational marijuana is legal as of today, but the vision of what a pot-permissive Canada looks like remains somewhat hazy.”


Clean your bong, pass it along and other expert tips on cannabis etiquette
Now that marijuana is legal in Canada, experts share best practices for using it with class
https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/legal-cannabis-etiquette-manners-1.4868908
“Emily Post might not have been thinking about cannabis when she wrote down the rules of etiquette, but that doesn’t mean you should throw manners to the wind if you dabble in legal weed.”


Bud and Breakfast: Canada’s cannabis tourism industry is about to take off
https://www.cbc.ca/radio/day6/episode-412-tourism-for-tokers-saudi-prince-under-scrutiny-how-to-kill-a-tv-character-april-ryan-and-more-1.4869003/bud-and-breakfast-canada-s-cannabis-tourism-industry-is-about-to-take-off-1.4869008
“For marijuana users around the world, a plane ticket to Canada just got a lot more appealing.
The Canadian government made history this week with the legalization of recreational pot use across the country. People lined up for hours for the chance to be among the first Canadians to buy a legal gram of bud.”


So, the day finally came.  As of Wednesday (October 17), recreational use of marijuana is legal in Canada.  There were lineups for that first taste of a legal joint; it was flying off the shelves, supplies ran low, or were completely gone on the first day.  Oh well, tomorrow’s another day.

Yay Canada! I don’t like pot and don’t really see why anyone does, but they do, a lot, and making it legal is really a good thing and just way overdue. The self-righteous drug Nazis in the US just can’t let it go, they have to have a devil to fight to justify their need for more money and power to save all the poor people from.

Hey man, maybe they’ll change their minds when they figure out there’s profit in it.

Growing up everyone in my hood smoked and I could buy it from about 50 different people just on my block, by 18 I lost any interest and have never gotten it back. Coke, crack, crank, now those were party drugs!

What’s not to like about Canada!  It’s like the California of the north, but without the whacked rest of the country holding it back.  Well, it does get too cold for my taste.

The highways are not so great in Canada, and the beer selection is sub-optimal, except perhaps in Calgary. Other than that that, it’s a pretty cool place, and now it’s gotten cooler.

As far as beer is concerned, you’ve obviously had your sense of proportion skewed all out of whack by Loan Star (they loan it to you, then take it back). Or not been to
good beer places when visiting. But the signs in the airport today tell me that it’s still not kosher to bring pot across the boarder.

Canada has some micro-breweries that serve up some really good suds.
Don’t judge us by our Molson Canadian.

I think it’s kinda funny that the Canadian guys here came quickly to the defense of our beer, with nary a mention of our poor, under-funded highways.

Texas has better highways and beer. Not to mention barbecue (brisket), chili, and fajitas.  Compared to Texas on these important issues, everyone else sucks.

I will say that Canada kicks ass on poutine and beaver tails.

Yup, I think you got us there – better highways and Mexican food.

I may be a ‘bad’ Canadian as I don’t much like poutine, but we do have some great food, a benefit of many cultural influences. But on other important issues, we gotcha beat with hockey, curling, comedians, and polar bears.  And, especially now (as per the OP), we’re much mellower, which doesn’t suck.  ;-)

Poutine rocks!  Curling is an abomination that cannot be forgiven.  Unless it is the Swedish curling team in bikinis. (The women’s team, that is.)
