Wynne’s pot plan a haze

Seldom has a government been so out of touch with voters than the Kathleen Wynne’s provincial government approach to selling pot.

Remember, we are talking here not about the de-criminalization of the consumption of pot but the federal government making it full-out legal, or recreational, as you will, as of July 1, 2018.

As it will unfold.

Step 1. Set up government pot stores, close down private stores.

Step 2. In response to public rejection “privatize” government pot stores.

Step 3. Sell government pot stores to Liberal party members for a nickel bag.

    Da Sunny Ways gang is always after entrepreuners that take huge risks and personally invest in a business. My MPP office is getting some grinding, asap.

    …Trudeau to legalize pot use was not a rogue one. It was one of his main planks of the last federal election that drove primarily youth, but also others, to rush to the ballot box to vote Liberal.

    You only get to get to legalize pot for one election. What gimmick will they use for the next election?

      Oh no!
      They get to legalize it this time and then forevermore get to use “fight to keep it legal” for the next election, and the one after that!

    I suspect it was always about the government taking over the roll of dealer so they could make some big money. They won’t even be able to do that right. They will be so bad at it that the private entrepreneurs will still control the trade. Now, however, the government will get serious about cracking down on the private trade because they are in direct competition.

    • This will not stop the dealers a bit, I suspect the Government will enforce a strict ceiling on the amount of THC in they sell. The free market will make mince meat of them.

        The better dealers are already in the process of cultivating the medical marijuana community. The best cannabis will remain reserved for the black market only. The “official” pot shops will peddle decent smokeable weed, but nothing like the cannabis grown for the community which uses cannabis as medicine.

        Canada – unoriginal in the extreme even when it really tries HARD to be original. Fucking sad.

      Only the government can lose money selling marijuana.

    Don’t worry, even if it becomes perfectly legal under federal law, Wynn will have Ontario inspectors to try to make sure what you bought was only from them.

    I see the government switching from the LCBO model to the Beer Store model were the major private breweries control the beer stores and monopolize what is on the shelves squeezing out the smaller breweries.
