I don't understand the price differentials. What makes it double the cost when you cross from Yukon to Northwest? Are hydroponics more expensive?


Each province set the price based on what they thought their market could carry. It's close to random.

Can you get away with growing your own?

@edgarblythe,
Depends on the jurisdiction. It's definitely a work in progress, this change in the legislation. There's an umbrella federal law - then provinces and cities are making specific rules about where and when you can purchase/obtain/use.

@edgarblythe,
In Ontario, yes. Up to four plants per household.

@Joeblow,
Hey, what if one of your plants goes to seed and a bunch of the seeds germinate? Or even weirder seeds blow into your garden from someone else's plant and you exceed the four plant limit just by dint of being a crap gardener? They don't call it weed for nothing.

@hingehead,
I think our growing season is so short that by the time it's gone to seed, there'd be no time to grow a new plant but even if that's not so, the police don't want people to call about their neighbours' pot plants. I'm pretty sure no-one would even notice if it was just one or two extras...but I dunno. I'm guessing confiscation and a ticket.

If you had significantly more than four plants, possession ftp trafficking maybe?

There must be some legislation surrounding all that but I haven't seen it yet.

@Joeblow,
Most of the weed I see growing around here seems to be in people's upstairs windows - I see it when I'm walking the dog at night - the backlighting shows it up so well Laughing you're right about our inadequate growing season - though climate change could fix that right up.

hingehead is right about the weediness of weed. many many many years ago, my parents found some growing in their asparagus patch ... seeds had blown over when their neighbours did some planting. I was assigned the task of destruction and removal Shocked

@Joeblow,
I'm guessing this will be a major blocker to legalising it in Australia - there's already 'open access' patches dotted around our national and state parks. I seem to remember being told it was growing wild in the Brindabellas (occasionally snow tipped mountains to the Southwest of Canberra).

My favourite story was the cop out Leeton way who was a keen gardener. Out on a dirt road he noticed a field of roses in his rear view mirror. Chucked a ewey to take a look because it was the wrong time for them to be blooming. Soon realised someone had tied plastic roses to fully grown Cannabis plants, as a disguise.

Who's the stinker/stick in the mud to thumb down (twice) this fun, impish yet still cute illustration. Can't be actual Canadians. They have a great sense of humor.

Serious business now . . . Stats Can is predicting that family food budgets will increase by between $400 and $500 next year. The reason? So many operators of green house operations have switched to growing whacky tobbacky that fresh produce produced in Canada will declined steeply. That means that what you see in the grocery store will likely be imported, and therefore more expensive.

I hadn't considered that. Twinkies will be out of reach once Canadians get the munchies.
