^ Are you coughing to draw attention to the previous statement or because there is smoke in your siphon?


What comment.

I am pretty sure that anyone involved in the running of the Government pot and liquor shops is not associated with organized crime.

Define organized crime?  a) Turning down legitimate application, that also happens to be First Nations, until further information is provided to which more stalling is thrown up at every turn?

b) Fully plan on opening a store in the territory of the First Nations whom made the application, same application that is 'frustrated' and a store to which the Gov. is also the sole supplier to all other 'for profit' stores including the First Nations, by order of law? 

c) All of the above?

The Chief was on CFAX this afternoon. The application hasn't been turned down. The Chief is upset that he has to submit to the security check that he claims he already did when he applied for a casino license and that it has taken 8 weeks for the Government to review his paperwork when he was told it would take 2.5. I would think that any of the Victoria pot shops would give their right arm to have their applications processed in 18 weeks let alone 8. The Government doesn't have a store either

 

I am sure at the end of the day the Chief will be successful bringing drugs onto the reserve to supplement the gambling that they already have.

He then went on to suggest that they shouldn't have to do the security screening at all since the BC Government doesn't have to be screened and this is a Government to Government deal. The delay seemed to be his biggest concern though.

 

What surprises me is that they are even bothering, most FN just seem to be opening stores and selling their own pot without any licensing.

Looks as though smart ass screening not in effect.

CBC says that legal pot is getting more expensive and illegal pot is getting cheaper. Not surprisingly most people are buying illegal pot.

I noticed that Pineapple Express on Esquimalt Road has a notice in the door. Says they are closed and attempting to go through the process of being legally licenced. What a mess this whole legalization rollout has been. 


Don't be so sure.:cool:

The mess started when illegal businesses were allowed to propagate before federal and provincial legislation and regulations were established.

And since illegal mainland growers have been allowed to flourish and continue to control the majority of the market in BC.
