Gee, are those the dinners where you smoke pot and try to get lucky? I missed all of those.

Dunno, lately I've heard more than one news report of CO men murdering their women. Could they be developing a cumulative effect over time? Maybe getting overly irritable when not high?

Outside of restaurants, at the hockey games, walking down the street and at the camp grounds. It not like cigar smoke or other annoying smells, that smoke contains THC which is a drug and certainly not for children to be inhaling. The latest research indicate children exposed to THC have brain development problems. I don't want to be inhaling their second hand smoke either and why people do not mind smelling like a skunk is beyond my reasoning. Solutions: ask nicely, build a big smokey camp fire and their smoke is less evident, go inside and close the windows until it passes. Eventually the laws will change and pot smokers will have more restrictions, but for now we depend on the kindness of neighbors to be responsible. Police do not want to waste their time on this problem as the courts do not precedents established and they do not want to jam up the system with they believe to a bad notion of the government. Mostly Canadians are nice and when there is a good reason (children in area) they will likely take their smoking away from your camp site and go for a walk elsewhere.
It has been my experience, people do not chain smoke marijuana like cigarette smokers chain smoke tobacco. They smoke a joint, and any smell quickly dissipated if the smoking is done outside. Tobacco users on the other hand are more apt to repeatedly/continually expose others to second hand smoke which permeates clothing (and everything else) and, to a non-smoker, is extremely offensive. I will not debate whether use of either substance constitutes a “disgusting” habit, but I have yet to hear any pot smoker defend his smoking location by stating “it is my right to smoke anytime I want” as I have heard many tobacco users state. As a result, at this point in time I find tobacco addicts far more rude and much less considerate of others in close proximity that pot smokers. That being said, anyone smoking any substance including fire wood should be considerate of others. Smoky, smoldering campfires which put out more smoke than flame cause those downwind trying to sleep with open windows to have to close windows. As others have pointed out, far too many people have little or no consideration for others.

Do Canadian truck drivers have to pass drug tests? What about airline pilots?

We certainly have the right to be offended. And we do have the right not to take offense. But you don't have the right to be shielded from offense.

Canada’s airline industry says it has not yet been given any directive from the federal government about how to deal with the effects of legalization on its pilots and crews.


Personally I trust that pilots will continue to do the right thing given their professorial standing and need to operate across international boundaries.

Wait..you mean the entirety of the United States and Canada is not a "safe space"? I'm glad I'm just a bit too old to have been steeped in the "micro-aggression" safe-space snowflake mentality. I personally live my life in a very respectful way, but I don't necessarily demand it of other people.

I think you have more to worry about from over-the-counter and prescription drugs.

I mostly agree with this, although it'll take a while for attitudes to change. I wouldn't think twice about drinking around my kids, but still feel weird about the idea of smoking pot in front of them. I think you're right, though, that this is mostly an attitude that exists because it's been illegal for so long.

Marijuana use at Rallies in Canada

There is one difference, and that’s second-hand smoke. Of course that applies to cigarettes, too. I keep my kids away from where that’s happening, and I’ll certainly avoid places where pot is smoked. I’ll also keep them away from places and situations where alcohol is bring consumed inappropriately or in excess.

Actually there are a lot of things, legal and illegal, that don’t mix well with minors.

The concept that pot or alcohol or tobacco is revenue / tax positive is only partially true . There are numerous other social and financial cost associated with there use . IE ; medical , lost work ,lost productivity , damage to families ,
etc. The studies I’ve read show that when you add up the plus and minuses .that the sale of these products are at best revenue neutral
I have never been fond of the notion of using sin taxes to finance government
The end doesn’t justify the means IMHO

And most people these days seem to have their own definition of "sin".
