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: Cops aren’t too bad about weed, sometimes they will just throw it out, sometimes you get charged with possession. I guess it just depends on where you are smoking it. there are alot of undercovers though, since we have problems with other drugs.

Where to buy marijuana: Hard nut to crack this one at first.

Go to B.O.B.’s bong shop downtown.

Be cool and causualy ask the costomer if they know where to score weed. Some very nice High School aged guys hooked me up with tasty weed @ 100$ for half oz.

Marijuana prices: it ranges from $240/oz to about $180/oz, depending on quality and well, who you know. an eigth is $25-40.

Marijuana brands: sweet smoke

they had some other stuff that was super killer.

They couldn’t get any of it that day and said it was more expencive. I would gladly have paid 80$ for a quarter of that weed mabey more
