Senate passes bill to legalize recreational cannabis (sorry guys - it's CANADA)

Senate passes bill to legalize recreational cannabis

OTTAWA—Canadians will be able to legally purchase and consume recreational marijuana by mid-September at the latest after the Senate voted Tuesday to lift almost a century-old prohibition on cannabis.

Senators voted 52-29, with two abstentions, to pass bill C-45, after seven months of study and debate.
Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor has said the provinces will need two to three months after the bill is passed before they’ll be ready to implement the new legalized cannabis regime.

“We have seen in the Senate tonight a historic vote that ends 90 years of prohibition of cannabis in this country, 90 years of needless criminalization, 90 years of a just-say-no approach to drugs that hasn’t worked,” said independent Sen. Tony Dean, who sponsored the bill in the upper house.

Canada is the first industrialized country to legalize cannabis nationwide.


OH Canadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

- Might this be a cause? - "Lithuania to supply Ukraine with military aid"


USA and it's allies appear to be trying to isolate Russia from the World.

In my opinion Crimea was more than willing to annex Russia, regardless of all the hoopla in the MSM.

Don't run off that I'm a Putin lover or an Obama hater - I am neither. But just watching the goings on in Ukraine where they are slaughtering their own citizens to keep them in - and now we (yes us Canucks too) are helping Kiev to continue the slaughter.

I do not blame Russia even if it seals it's borders and airspace to the rest of the World at this point. The West has made it clear that we will continue to harass Russia unless Russia does our bidding.

The West started this mess imo, and put Russia on the defensive.

I'm on Russia's side on this one, unless they copy our "shock and awe" path,

which I doubt Russia would even consider, much less implement.

- Not long if we are growing food, especially tomatoes.

Most serious gardeners start their food stuffs inside, then transplant them when the frost danger is over.

I have a thread in DU that show the benefits of a greenhouse - I haven't built one yet at my new place, but the materials are here, and plan to have one up and running by next summer.

I had tomatoes still ripening when the snow was on the ground!

Another thread you may not have seen of mine, is here - in LIFE.

Lots of info in both of them.
