The laws on Marijuana in Canada..
    #2761838 - 06/04/04 12:33 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I am confused, I heard it is legal in Canada in certain areas..is this true? what areas in Canada is it legal? and how do you purchace it if you get it?.... Other places in Canada like B.C. is still illegal I heard, but how strict is it if you get busted with say 28 grams of weed in B.C.??

It is still illegal to possess or cultivate marijuana everywhere in Canada.

That being said...Canada as a society has quite a lot of tolerance towards marijuana. I know a LOT of people who have been caught with pot by the police who were let off with just a "warning". I even know people who've been caught red-handed growing pot but were let off with a "warning" (note the ammount being grown was always less than 5 plants). I've heard that in many areas of BC you can smoke openly, in public, without much fear of being arrested or even harrassed by police...but that's just what I've heard. I haven't been out there to test it out myself :smirk:

I've smoked in front of cops before, under special circumstances, and the cops didn't do anything. Last summer there was a period where the Law was uncertain as to whether possession was still illegal or not...and during that period I participated in a "protest". About 200 of us (including Marc Emery) lit up at 4:20 right in front of the police headquarters of the city I lived in at the time. Cops walked right by me as I hit a giant bong (bud compliments of Marc Emory...DAMN can that guy grow!). I waved at them and laughed...they did nothing. This isn't something I would try now, of course, as the law has since been "clarified" to show that it is still illegal.

Marijuana is legal for medical purposes here, and the government even PROVIDES it to patients...but the process of getting an "exemption" is quite difficult. I think there are only a few hundred people with such exemptions right now.

Overall, it looks like we are moving steadily in the direction of, at the least, decriminalization.

Weed is lax in BC. Everyone smokes wherever they want and some stores sell chronic over the counter. There are countless establishments where you can buy weed and various establishments where you can smoke it.

You can smoke it in clubs, on the street, in front of your school.

whateverssssss.

On the topic of medical marijuana, many many people have it and get it from an organization called "the compassion club" which grows its own weed.

We have some of those compassion clubs out here, as well. I know for sure there's one in Montreal, and they take orders over the internet!

Uhh, which B.C are you referring to? The police don't act like dicks by getting in your shit but it goes both ways. People don't light up just anywhere and force the police into a situation where the cops are forced to ignore you smoking up.
It is lax though, in that nobody makes a big deal out of it for the most part.

It's getting to be the same out here in Ontario. It seems like most cops are willing to leave us tokers alone as long as we don't make a big deal out of it.

Try not to flaunt it in their faces...and you won't force them into doing something about it.

Most cops I've come accross seem like they just don't want to deal with all the damn paper work :lol:

Sounds like the cops out here in Chicago. Except they always confiscate your pot and leave you dry.

Thanks for the information, guys..that would be cool because I want to go visit the British Columbia area sometime, maybe next year..
I thought about moving there because it is very beautiful area to live at...not just for the weed either. But I would like to pay less for weed and live where the common people aren't as stressed out like they are here in Utah.
Don't get me wrong I like the scenery here, but I am sick of living here, I have lived in Utah all my life and need a change of atmosphere...plus I like being around people that are a lot more laid back and don't judge you on your actions...

My friends and I light up anytime, anywhere down here in Kits.

But yes, we generally dont light up in front of the cops, thanks for clarifying that.

here I'll put your stupid statement again:

I don't care if you are from Kits and you have crazy badass friends that do crazy things like light up. That isn't how it goes.If the cops saw you and your nerdy friends they would tell you to put the shit away.

People from B.C really need to start being more relaistic(on the internet is where I see it) about what it is like here.It rains like FUCK. There are some pot cafes, and you won't see people lighting up along the street and in front of schools very often if ever. You seem to think that people from the states are afraid of lighting up at all. Of course they light up where the cops aren't, so why are you bragging about doing the same thing?

you're hilarious sir trips, a real comedian. You got me in stiches over here.

"People from B.C really need to start being more relaistic(on the internet is where I see it) about what it is like here.It rains like FUCK."

???????????

"I don't care if you are from Kits and you have crazy badass friends that do crazy things like light up"

double ??????

do you have some sort of self-esteem issue? Im not bragging, nor am I attempting to seem CrAAzzzY. Its just normal, people smoke wherever they want, its no big deal. Im sure people do it everywhere, get over your self, wierdo.

O.K buddy. I'm not the one online lying to try and sound cool.

"Come to B.C, you can light up in clubs all you want".

I don't get it. People here want to know what to expect if they plan a visit to B.C( a lot here say they are). So exaggerating doesn't help anybody or anything except your ego.

"We light up at school, wherever man". Ya, you aren't bragging, you're just lying for some reason.

sir trips....what is your problem??? im not fucking bragging, get it???

the last club I went to was "the purple onion", have you ever been there? it has multiple rooms, one of the rooms is a drum and bass lounge with couches. Me and my friends chilled there and smoked joints, no big deal. I dont know what kind of social group you hang with, nor do I give a fuck.....but for many people in Vancouver, this lifestyle is very normal.

The same goes for my school (ubc) students of UBC smoke wherever they please, of course you are going to avoid security, but many a day me and my compatriots have smoked openly, in front of the library in the middle of the day.

seriously, 6230 posts? maybe you spend too much time on-line and you should go discover that.....get this......not everyone in this diverse city of ours subscribes to the same socialization patterns.

trust me, if I wasnt writing a thesis at the moment I wouldnt be spending so much time on the net.

Not to say that such behaviour is in any way inferior, but tripsalot's allegations are just idiotic, immature and unnecessary. I was merely cataloguing my own experiences.

these sort of attacks are generally indicative of some sort of internal frustration, I'm sure.

This guy IS HILARIOUS. "I Go to UBC Cause Im smart"
" I got in the purple onion because I am cool"
"I am writing a thesis and realy want to get off the internet because I am smart and cool "

" And for some other bizarre reason altogether I use the word catalogue to describe how I store information in my brain"
