  1. Hey guys! That was great! On the topic of Bill C45, Canada's country-wide adult-use Cannabis legalization bill, it's now been delayed until August. I predict later than that in reality. Our Senators voted on the bill and passed it through its second reading yesterday, they'll review & vote on it again in a few months. The delay is likely also because we're sending the law enforcement who will be our "Drug Evaluators" to Florida to be taught to recognize Cannabis consumption's effects on an individual. As you know, there is no accurate blood, urine, or saliva test to judge impairment at this time so Canada is opting for the US program that relies on an officer's judgement of how you look, act, walk, or drive. In the US, 60% of the charges went back to court so not sure it's a great program but it's what we have.

    This "Cannabis Social Club" sounds kinda like the "Cannabis "Cookie" Exchange Parties" that a few of my friends have talked about. Bill C45 has an amendment to allow Canadians to grow up to 4 plants. (This portion of the bill will have crazy restrictions on it.) No doubt like the social clubs in Spain, each grower would grow certain strains & at harvest each individual gets all of their daytime & night time Cannabis needs filled. I love the idea & the community/camaraderie aspect of it. Each person could grow to their capacity and each harvest will be like a graduation of knowledge in horticultural therapy.

    All-in-all, it's progress though still pretty rough. We'll be polishing and amending this regulation for years to come. Many of my friends didn't want it to pass. It's incredibly biased but it's a start. Anyhoo, great show as usual.

    Cheers!
