Edmonton, AB, Canada
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.8
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: edmonton, like calgary, is very casual. although you can be able to find people who smoke in public, it isn’t terribly common. police have larger issues to deal with and like the majority of canada, it is tolerated in small amounts. unlikely to be charged if carrying personal use.
our most recent report is: “If cops find you with weed they will usually just take it. Or if you get an asshole he’ll take it use it as evidence and try to charge (Only if you have alot or your lippy to him)”
Where to buy marijuana: whyte avenue is your best bet if you don’t know anyone local. chances are a local can hook you up extremely easily. if not, the myriad of bars, pubs, skate shops, and weed accessory shops will point you in the right direction.
another reporter dded: “Everywhere. Go downtown to Jasper Ave, or White Ave theres alot of places you could ask. Just ask Random Pot heads if they can score you some trees and they’ll probably just want to smoke it with you”
Edmondton Marijuana prices: alberta weed is just as good as bc bud. all hydroponic typically. 1/4’s go for about 50, 1/2’s around
another report is: “45 for a Quarter 1/4
90 for a half 1/2
180 for an ounce
Usually you can get better deals but most dealers sell it for this much.
But ive got 16g for 60 bucks “one time”
Current prices as of May, 2008:
$60 – 65 for a quarter
$100 – 120 for a half
$200 – 220 for an ounce
I’ve found that a lot of dealers try to push the shake on newbies, but tell
them you want the kush… trust me, it’s worth the extra $20
Marijuana brands: No specific brands here mostly all good weed No hydro and stuff not like in the USA where you have to pay more for Kind bud You dont call it that up there all weed is preatty good
More information: On april 20th go to the legislator and smoke weed with 1000 other pot heads cops won’t bother you
