Hey folks, what you have to do is take a trip to your local First Nations Reserve. Northern Ontario here. Most Reserve have at least one dispensary. Politicians and cops don't dare fuck with them.

Yeah, heard that from my step Dad who lives out of town and hears these sort of rumors. Those on the Rez will be left alone...like they always are i.e. cigarettes, guns, etc.

Re: Canadian Government Moves To Increase Taxes On Cannabis Products
Another HUGE issue I have with the current system is their weights.

Two weeks ago I bought a 3.5gr container, (Aurora/MK Ultra). When I got home I put the contents on my scale. It weighed 3.1gr. When I went to the shop a week later to buy another one, I mentioned to the 'bud tender' about my weight discrepancy. She said you have to make a complaint to the AGLC (Alberta Gaming and Liquor Control)...she also stated that many people have been making similar complaints.

So I took my new 3.5gr purchase home and weight it...this time 3.0gr...and the quality is shit. These producers use "Tumblers" to trim their weed...it may be faster but certainly lose the quality (you lose a lot of tricomes in that process).

So yea, the quality vs quantity vs price is certainly not worth it.

Hey OP, do you think the producers provide second rate products to Alberta GL&C? I ask because Tweed didn't have any Bakerstreet oil after legalization but AGL&C did - in a weird container mist/spray that you couldn't open to see the contents...for $100, $10 more than the producer. Legalization is a bloody joke!

 Quoting: VetsMom

The Indigenous groups played a pivotal role in the signing of the Cannabis Act (Bill C-45) last summer. They almost put a kybosh to the whole thing if they weren't given support (financial/training/lic applications, etc.).

Similar to what is happening in NY. The "African/American" groups are putting a stranglehold on NY passing a bill for Cannabis legalization if they too also don't get special financial and training support. Their claim is "too many white rich guys getting all the opportunities and getting richer".

Well, get off your ass, become an entrepreneur, create a business plan, find financing that can accommodate your business plan and apply for a license. No different than any 'whitey' will do.

So tired of people wanting something for nothing!!!

Honestly...for a connoisseur, the only top quality bud you will get is when the Gov starts allowing the Micro Cultivators and Processors to operate. They are the true professionals in the Cannabis space...heck, they have been providing the entire market since...forever.

They also have pride in their final product...they take the time in harvesting, drying, curing and trimming...the big commercial guys...get it in and out as quick as possible.

Not really because the Micro Cultivation/Processing licenses are restricted to 200sqM (2150 sqft) of canopy and a max capacity of 600Kg/yr...so their revenues are limited. But still, 600Kg of dried use-able flower at the current wholesale of $5/gr...that is a cool 3M/yr.

Edit: even if you have 50% cost (which it is not that high) you still walk away with 1.5M ...not bad for doing something you love (growing) and making serious bank.

^THIS^

A very important aspect of the cannabis plant. The commercial growers have market caps and projections to maintain so the more pot out the door, the more revenue.

I recently spoke to a "Master Grower" for one of the larger LP's and he said exactly that. Jokingly he said "they are forcing me to grow teenage girls, not women"...I LOL'd at that.

You are so correct. Just recently found a local nearby and have tried a couple of products and I think there is a difference in quality for sure. Instead of napping during the night it's now a solid seven. Hubby just harvested a couple of plants and it's so much nicer than the producers which I hope to not use so much in the future.

only a pot head would think that Trudeau was a good guy to vote for, that decriminalizing pot means you can now grow it in your back yard, that the government isn't going to control the crap out of it and that if you want to buy legal weed that the government won't tax the crap out of it.

Also Caffine...no THC infused coffee.

BUT, have you heard of THC Isolates? Highly concentrated crystallized THC (and CBD). The concept is to put the legal amount (10mg/pkg) into a "Sugar pack" like you get at a restaurant to put in your coffee/tea. The isolates will be water soluble so they will mix well with any liquid.

Imagine putting a few packs in your coffee...WOW, now that will be a new "Coffee Buzz"...lol.

Plus, you would be able to put it on anything because it is tasteless and odorless so you can put it on your "cornflakes"...1rof1
