Fort McMurray, Canada

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4

Legislation: 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: Seems lax, had no run ins with police

Where to buy marijuana: Bars, 7/11 downtown, possibly BC plate RVs in wal mart parking lot

Marijuana prices: $15 a gram

More information: Fort McMurray is a crack town. Pot is very hard to come by. Beware of people selling pot here, they WILL rip you off if given the chance. See it before you give the money!

What we got was some indica, took a few joints to get used to the high but over all wasn’t too bad. No seeds, just very low if any sativa content.
