I’m a pot party pooper


  1. doconnor says:

    The tobacco companies could only be sued because for decades they denied smoking causes lung cancer when thier own studies showed that it did. It was a fraud that cost thousands of lives.

  2. Kelly says:

    Lung cancer. That’s the part everybody forgets about.

    I hate the smell, as well.

  3. Elsie Marley says:

    Inhaling is not the only way to ingest “cannabis sativa”.

  4. Geoff says:

    Ont govt will have made recreational drug use acceptable. Whats next? LCBO selling branded Heroin ? Rob Ford branded Crack ?

  5. Matt says:

    Very little research finds a link. In fact, opposite may be true. But why let medical evidence get in the way of a good tweet.

  6. Michael Teper says:

    So the government makes selling marijuana a criminal offense on Monday and then takes a monopoly on the trade on Tuesday.

  7. Cory says:

    Don’t forget some studies also show decreased white matter in the brain.

  8. Dan Forth says:

    Premier SixPack Wynne(s) the bonehead award.

  9. A. Voter says:

    In a Dec. 15 story in the Globe and Mail, Canada’s pediatricians have taken a stand against cannabis as medicine for children. The doctors say the downside to using cannabis is not worth the benefits. Another potential source of lawsuits.

  10. Liam Young says:

    Don’t be surprised if the LCBO / Government of Ontario tries to get in on the porn industry. Holly’wood’ north, anyone?
    About marijuana: decriminalize the damn stuff and let the market take care of the rest. Apply the same standards for smoking (insurance issues, grief from doctors, etc) and let anyone licensed to sell it sell it.
    Letting the LCBO take it over would be a disaster!

  11. Steve T says:

    Unfortunately, what has happened is that the support for legal medical marijuana (which is a good thing) has been hijacked by those who want recreational marijuana usage, and further hijacked by those who use junk science to promote marijuana as being a “healthy” alternative to alcohol. It simply isn’t true.

  12. Patrick says:

    Completely different times, levels of awareness and intent. The government will post the same warnings of potential illnesses that are presently on a cigarette package and let it be buyer beware. There is far more information about the potential dangers available to the public than there ever was about cigarettes – I really don’t think the “Freedom Sticks” slogan used to get women to smoke will be convertible to pot. Finally, pot has a purpose, to get one high, cigarettes have never had a purpose other than trying to look as cool as Humphry Bogart. And make he sellers money.

  13. Peter says:

    If he’s determined and were smart, Trudeau would pitch this with an air of reluctance (dare I say “soberly”) as a necessary measure to save law enforcement resources and stop the corruption of the judicial system, and he would prepare himself to give some hard answers about things like children and impaired driving. But if he comes off grinning as proudly liberating the beautiful people and cool kids to finally live out the promise of Woodstock, he’ll buy himself a lot more controversy than he may think. Especially if Wynne keeps popping up to drool about tax revenue and muse about picking up an ounce of the best at the LCBO as the perfect complement to her privately purchased six-pack.

    It’s a vice, people. Smart governments don’t boast about enabling vice.

  14. Shhhhh!! Marijuana is medicine now and not something people use to get high. Shhhhhhh!!
