It's been an interesting week on the Island since Marijuana was legalized in Canada on Wednesday.

All the Pot stores are being run by government and the lines have been long. Sales have also exceeded projections as many locations across the Canada ran out of stock after the first day.

Anyway - I hope more research gets done on the affects of marijuana on chronic conditions such as diabetes as very few studies have been conducted in the past for the simple reason that Big Pharma does not have a patent on the plant and that industry does most health studies. (or at least this is what I've been told)

Interesting times ahead - and so far the sky isn't falling LOL ....

Yes this is the very latest GMO MM, it was developed for better compatibility with the Lays and Doritos you scarf down when you get the munchies. Study funded by the Frito-Lay Corp.

Yeah, I have a friend in Manitoba and he told me a couple months ago it was going legal up there. Not a good thing. He's already been made sick by some jackass stinking up his entire apartment building with that crap, and he's allergic to it as well.

I've already seen several stories about pot smokers stinking up the buildings they live in, where other residents can't even be in their own apartments or condos because the stench is so bad. One couple has a little boy that is severely allergic to it and can't be home when the rude jackasses downstairs light up and stink up the building.

My question is......

The government is making things easier for drug addicts.........what are they doing for those people who are allergic to this stuff, who hate the stench of the stuff, and who find it repulsive? Is the government going to give THEM tax benefits for having to live around those who obviously have no consideration for anyone at all?

It depends on the Province/State. Here on the Island - you would never know it was legal. Nothing has changed. I haven't smelled anything and I haven;t seen any obvious intoxication going on.

In other Provinces like Nova Scotia places like Halifax saw it as a good time to ban smoking of all types/kinds in public places in their city.

So it's not all that bad in some parts of the country but I'm sure it will be a major annoyance for some.

As far as my own opinion on marijuana and legalization. I don't really have one other than I hope some credible scientific studies on marijuana use finally get done so marijuana users have a better idea of what the health implications might be.

I just wanted to post a follow up on this topic.

My neighbors smoke marijuana in their back yard almost hourly.

Now, I am not a marijuana smoke nazi. I've never complained about the smell in my yard.

I support their right to smoke in their backyard. Clearly, they don't want the smell in their house.

But what about my house? I don't want their smell in my house, and isn't that my right?

I did some checking, if their smell makes it onto public property, there are city bylaws that can issue a fine.

However, those by laws dont protect my private property. How is that fair?

Additionally, I checked provincial laws that specifically state that all plants must be grown and harvested indoors( house or greenhouse) and they mention 'smell' as the reason......yet the smell of smoking is legal and not worse?

Sorry for venting. no pun intended.

I think it's unfair that our laws don't protect your private property. In addition, neighbors should understand that not all people like to breathe marijuana smoke. I hope you've talked to them about it… Sometimes neighbors do not realize that they can cause inconvenience to other people by their actions, but there are also those who believe that they can do anything in their backyard. By the way, you can suggest that they use other products containing cannabis -- for example, sometimes I use weed gummies for relaxation, I found them on weedsmart.net. They can replace smoking and are not as harmful to health as daily smoking of marijuana. If your neighbors switch to weed gummies, both sides will benefit.
