Just wondering what percentage of Y'all have been lifted from the oppression of illegal cannabis?
Things changed here very quickly in the last four years. Medical cannabis was very difficult to get. You would have to have a condition like cancer or glaucoma to get access to it. Then it seemed like all of a sudden people were getting prescriptions for loss of sleep or appetite, back pain. The easily fake able conditions where anyone who put in the effort could get it.
A year or so after that the black market seemed to explode into mainstream. Police enforcement had backed off and honestly it might have been the most exciting time. There were countless websites that would ship you a wide array of products at lower prices we had never seen before. Picking it up at the post office was a hell of a lot better than having to meet your "guy".
Head shops were popping up around the larger cities and Vancouver even had vending machines in one location. About a year and half ago it was legalized. It took a another year to legalize all the high test edibles, concentrates, Keif's ect. The prices do remain higher than the black market but the quality has never been better, you definitely get what you pay for. The industry did suffer a setback due to higher prices. Plenty of folks stuck with the tried and true black market
Anyway, reading some post's on this forum got me thinking about legalization. How it was only a year and a half ago for us. And when I read others talk about legality of CBD it just feels odd to me now. Especially CBD, the fact that that non psychoactive component is still a concern to law enforcement. It's weird how fast perspectives can change. Like how the hell is this stuff not legal everywhere in the world. Guess I should count myself lucky.
How about Y'all?
