Happy 420, Earth!
April 20, 2018 - by Russell Bennett
Today is the day to celebrate the freedom of the most feared plant in history:
cannabis, marijuana, weed, grass, pot, chamba, bukowski and the many other names to describe a flower with amazing powers of healing, couch surfing and appetite stimulation.
While Canada slides into “legalization” in the coming months, introducing the Cannabis Act as the new law after 95 years of prohibition - the longest ban of a substance in human history - please do not be fooled: the punishment for offences under this proposed law are more harsh than the current Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.
Stay tuned for all the things you need to know to keep your mellow, and stay out of jail - unless you are a freedom fighter, of course.
For now, enjoy the knowledge that at least to some extent in the near future, Canadians will no longer face jail time and a criminal record for growing, buying and consuming cannabis.
