[NOTE: Jerry Agar is guest hosting for Ezra Levant while he is on assignment in Israel.] The subject of recreational marijuana and the law comes up every day in cities across Canada, but it exploded yesterday.
Marc and Jodie Emery, the so-called “Prince and Princess of Pot” were arrested when they came to Toronto to attend to business at their illegal dispensaries.
Then Cannabis Culture dispensaries in Toronto, Hamilton, and Vancouver were targeted by police.
Those pop up dispensaries are not selling medical marijuana. Some of them claim to be, but that isn’t how medical marijuana is legally dispensed.
And it probably isn’t how recreational marijuana, if and when it is legalized, will be retailed, either.
Alcohol sales are not handled in Canada by Mom and Pop shops. It is tightly controlled by the government, with highly inflated prices.
And there is no way – zero chance – that pot will be sold in any other way.
If there is a deal made with private business, it will be with President’s Choice and the Loblaw’s stores, not Mitzy and Justin on the corner...
