Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5
Legislation: it is against the law to possess marijuana in Canada. If you have baggies, scales or other selling paraphenalia, you may be charged with trafficking.
Cannabis is schedule II in Canada (for more than 3 kg). Canada’s cannabis control laws are spottily enforced, with the west coast (British Columbia) being well known for its high quality cannabis and low levels of enforcement. In 2002, Canada’s federal government made several findings in favor of cannabis legalization and medical use approval. Although the status of medical cannabis is still in flux (sep 2002), the Canadian government has several times voiced its intention to support full medical use. Non-viable Cannabis seeds and Cannabis stalks (that do not include leaves, flowers, seeds or branches) are exempted.
In July 2000, an Ontario Court of Appeal ruled against the Canadian law because it did not address medical necessity and on July 31, 2001 a new regulation was enacted by the cabinet which addressed medical use. In January 2003, a lower Ontario court ruled simple possession laws banning cannabis unconstitutional, although it is unclear what the long term implications of this might be.
Law enforcement: Very low. I’ve never been hassled for smoking dope in Dundas, and nobody I know has either. Although it’s not recommended or condoned (hehe), you could probably walk up King Street and smoke a joint without anyone caring…
Where to buy marijuana: You won’t find it in Dundas unless you know a hookup. However, it is pretty easy to find it if you just ask the “gangster” young ppl, they’re usually willing to help.
Marijuana prices: Prices vary a lot. You could get an eighth for 35 bucks one week and the next week you could get the same eighth for 20 bucks. It’s all up to the weedman.
More information: Dundas has some of the best weed you will find, MUCH better than Hamilton. And, the prices are very similar to boot. The only hassle is finding the weed.
