Congratulations to Canada for becoming the first industrialized nation to legalize cannabis. In my view, it is long past time that we in the United States end the …

  2. Congrats Canada !
    Legalize it in the US and don't make us the Pot Police between Mexico and Canada.
    The Job Creation would be tremendous!!
    Farmers could grow hemp, manufacturing of hemp eco friendly products would sky rocket us into a world leader.
    The country would absolutely thrive. Gang activity would decrease. the pluses out-weigh the minuses.

  3. Its time for the US to wake up and get onboard! There is so much money that can be made with taxes.. Legal Cannabis WILL create Thousands of New Jobs, Stamp Out the Black market, free up law enforcement to go after real/dangerous criminals, free up the court system, help people who can not afford to pay for their cannabis, all these things are GOOD! There are many other positives..Legalize it, the People Want this to Happen, NOW

  4. “In strict medical terms marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume… Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man."
    ― Francis Young -DEA Administrative Law Judge – 1988

    "Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use…”
    – Jimmy Carter (U.S.President)

    “Congress should definitely consider decriminalizing possession of marijuana…We should concentrate on prosecuting the rapists and burglars who are a menace to society.”
    -Dan Quayle (U.S. Representative & Vice President)

    "Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could."
     “The anti-marijuana campaign is a cancerous tissue of lies, undermining law enforcement, aggravating the drug problem, depriving the sick of needed help and suckering well intentioned conservatives and countless frightened parents.”
     – William F. Buckley Jr. (American conservative author and commentator)

    "The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world."
    – Dr. Carl Sagan (American Cosmologist, Astrobilologist, author & science communicator)

     “You bet I did -— and I enjoyed it.” ….when asked if he had ever smoked marijuana.
    – Michael Bloomberg (New York City Mayor)

    "Studies have consistently failed to establish the existence of a link between the harshness of a country’s drug laws and its levels of drug use."
     -Kofi Annan (U.N. Secretary General)

     "Pot is a better drug than alcohol. I'll prove it to you. You're at a ball game or a concert, and someone's really violent and aggressive and obnoxious, are they drunk or are they smoking pot?"
    “Why is pot against the law? It wouldn't be because anyone can grow it, and therefore you can't make a profit off it, would it?”
    “…It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit…unnatural?”
     -Bill Hicks (Satirist, Social Critic, Stand-Up Comedian)

     – – And last, but certainly not least (my personal favorite) – –

    "If the words "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" don't include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp it was written on."
     – Terence McKenna (American ethnobotanist, author, advocate for responsible use of natural psychedelic plants)

  5. if it's no longer illegal why don't they just let these people out of jail for being arrested for something that was out of line? Jesus it's not something that's difficult! Canadians are smarter than this.

  6. The USA is a Nazi state. The USA is a racist state. The USA is a Fascist State. The United States is a Terrorist State. The US is №1 criminal in the World. There will be a real new Nurnberg Tribunal-II for the United States. By the level of lies, the usa surpassed its teacher, Goebbels. Lying, lying, lying and lying to usa citizens and citizens of the World is the reality of usa behavior. The United States destroyed the national population of the Indians, destroyed millions of citizens of Vietnam, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine – this is genocide. The usa is a genocide of the population on the Planet. US crimes against humanity will be investigated, the verdict for the United States will be announced.

  7. I'm from Tennessee and let me tell you what, I'm sick and tired of not being able to buy recreational flower and concentrates. Tennesseans want safe and regulated cannabis. End the war on drugs!

  8. If its totally legal, why isn’t anyone toking? Legalization means regulation, corporatization, and small growers who have kept their communities viable will lose their small income. Not to mention mass grows must use mass additives, pesticides, fungicides and possibly GMO. I know, I’m from Humboldt.🌬💨🌈✌️

  9. Canada's motto is Peace, order and good government. Part of having a good functional government is not to have laws that are ridiculous, and can't be enforced anyway. Having alcohol legal and cannabis illegal is just stupid due to it's incongruity. In Canada legalizing cannabis is both a liberal and a conservative move. It's about personal freedom…and it legitimizes government and makes other laws more congruent. Plus the tax revenue and regulations/health monitoring.

  10. Wouldn't it be great if the supposed "left" leaning(LoL!) Democratic party actually supported cannabis legalization here in the US? Too bad they are owned by special interests just like the Republicans. We can't have progress without an actual Progressive leftist party. As it stands the duopoly is fully owned by big money who doesn't want cannabis legalized, healthcare as a right, or any other populist policy that the majority of Americans favor.
    Time to walk away from the Democrats Bernie. They aren't going to change before they drag us all down with them.

  11. Smoking is nothing I'd do but there are vayz aRound zat kind of pRoblem. Weed isn't worse than beer and the outcome in form of death, destruction, mayhem and genocide following the consumption of weed or beer depends on the person. The real threat to the health of the general public is prescription drugs and the opioid crisis owned by big pharma … peculiar, isn't it?

  12. ATTENTION PROGRESSIVES…
    Move to Canada! You don't even need a passport!
    They have great social services there…WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
    Any highway North will get you there! 👍

  13. Good for Canada for making it legal it's like alcohol in that it should be legalized….there's are states in US that have legalized it CO,WA, CA and believe OR also.

  14. If we legalized and regulated it, the drug gangs in Mexico would lose a lot of power, I believe the violence would go down and result in less people trying to come here and seek asylum. I'm 32, smoked for most of my life and have no criminal record. I would gladly pay double what I do now if I could go to a 7-11 or something and buy it there along with my 6 pack of beer. Alcohol is more dangerous and unhealthy for people than marijuana. I've lost a brother and a friend to alcohol abuse but it's still legal. I would not use there lack of control to ban it for everyone else. As adults, they made that mistake but not everyone does that. Same with marijuana. Some people that use it are pieces of shit criminals but that does not represent everyone that smokes. It's not Reefer Madness when you smoke. I suffer from a lot of anxiety and sometimes depression, so much that I've seen a therapist. He tried prescribing me medication and what worked the best for me was marijuana. I don't even use a lot. I am considered a "light weight" when it comes to that and that's great. I use a small amount after work and/or my days off for my mental health. Keep fighting the good fight people and congratulations Canada.
