(RCMP Staff Sergeant Robin Alexander doesn't think things will change to much from a policing perspective)
I saw a picture on a facebook page last night of a "before" and "after" of Canada when weed
was illegal and then the picture when it was legal. It was the same picture of two lawn chairs looking
over a lake. In my opinion nothing will really change after this day except the users will probably be
less paranoid of the authorities unless of course they are driving while under the influence. The days
of hippies smoking weed in an abandon house in the movies will probably be different now that pot
is out in the open and legal or will it? For years pot smokers were associated with laziness, good
for nothing losers. (according to my Dad's generation) Will media now be allowed to depict users
as vibrant parts of our business world and community now that it is legal? Who knows what tomorrow
will bring. One question, now that it is legal in Canada what will happen with the 4/20 celebration in April?
If you are not familiar with 4/20 it is the day every year that pot smokers would unite, I am not sure what
they did because my daughter just told me about this day just a few years ago. She never got in depth
as to what it was all about but I am sure more chips and chocolate bars were sold on that day over
the years. And so it goes, have a great day (man).
Congratulations on this day if you partake.
