He was on shrooms when he searched, clearly.

Red wine is a decent buzz. Mushrooms are heavy. But I would do them again if the right situation arose. I would need to have no responsibility so it’s not likely…

I don’t do anything but coffee these days. My stomach was messed up for more than a decade. Couldn’t drink because of it. I can now but am out of the habit. I’m grateful I can though. I’m a dipsomaniac so I don’t buy it and just let it surprise me when it appears. I still can’t smoke weed. Lungs are too damaged still. I miss it so.. but I gotta live longer. I have a five year old!

Clearly he’s been microdosing and the mushroom people have gradually taken over

I think I googled just the word “shrooms”. Haven’t done anything like that in a looooooooooong time but I have seen the benefits of microdosing.

I think we’ll plan a trip this winter.

Boring.


That being said I can’t drink wine anymore. Used to be able to but I overdid it on the wine as a teenager and now vomit immediately if I drink wine. Parents would make homemade red wine they didn’t really keep track of it. Beer still OK

I’ll have to check in with my shaman regarding that.

Not an albino penis envy. Something like a golden teachers mushroom is nice in a higher dose, some say


Also nice pressed into a tea with chamomile, some people like to add a pour of cream

Canada must help legal cannabis sector complete with the illicit market, experts say

Experts and industry people say the Cannabis Act review offers an opening to change Canada's approach

Absolutely not. The free market is the only thing needed in this industry

^^ yes, this sector needs more government interference for sure. That always helps.

Government - the only people who can’t make money selling weed.

It's a bit like saying the processed/packaged food industry needs help to stave off farm gate sales.

Typically the farm gate chevre will cost more than the save on foods velveeta, but in this case it’s the opposite.

Are these the same experts who claimed (for decades, in defiance of all logic and real-world experience) that legalizing drugs would surely eliminate the criminal operations?

 

People have such incredibly short memories. The system takes advantage of us because we desire it to do so.

Legalization was an attempt to set up a distribution monopoly for the largest gang in town. The one that controls all the gambling, drug and liquor distribution and forces those in the community to pay them protection money under the threat of violence.

If the Feds/Province wanted to shut down the majority of illegal product they could do it in a month. 

 

I predicted long before pot laws were passed that FN would take over the 'illegal' market (as they did with 'native smokes') and the Government would do nothing to stop them.

How would they do that? I think the majority of black market product never hits a store shelf.
