    Link: Canada is Number 1 at Something, Eh? - In these crazy and confused times, Canada ranks number one ... in its use of marijuana, that is.

    "To be blunt, Canada`s numbers are high." This corny joke made me chuckle.

    There are a lot worse things than pot. Like, cigarettes and booze. Or murder, rape, child abuse, genocide, AIDS, or hard drugs, of which aren`t enormous earth-shattering concerns in Canada (as far as I know).

    Notice how they get the most weirdo-looking people to talk about it, even though most of the potheads I know are skaters.

    And I love how the people who don`t even smoke are accepting of it. There is too much hate and intolerance to pot users in the U.S. My friend`s father disowned him and will not speak to him just because he smokes.

    "Thats because you people are annoying.

    with proper education in Canada, you should know the consequences of smoking pot or even do coke. And 13~17 is even close to being an adult yet.

    Go read some books so natural selection wont screw you in the ass. if you love to smoke pot or do coke, please dont breed. I dont want your retarded genes in our species.

    spring break `09 in Canada, for sure. The tolerance is *damn* appealing. not sure why people who don`t smoke feel the need to demonize those who do. If you`ve tried it and don`t like it (as is the case with some people), that is cool.

    but if you`ve never tried it and you say stuff such as, "people who smoke have retarded genes," ... well goddamn.

    smoking ganja is a hobby of sorts. anyone can do it, even people you wouldn`t suspect. I`m probably one of those people. honors dorm, solid grades, all of that stuff.

    oh and to the guy who said "i don`t want to smoke pot because I like the music I listen to"

    ...

    you /must/ know that listening to music while high is wayyyy better than when sober?

    Smoking pot is not even the same as coke it`s not even the same sport. It is a way of life, if you don`t smoke fine, but those of us who do are perfectly normal people functioning in society. Don`t even put these two things in the same sentance.

    Nice reporting, save the biased interviews. I`m sure some asshat had something to say about how terrible pot is. This doesn`t surprise me though. Pot is looked at a lot more openly up here in Canada than a lot of the States. It`s still illegal mind you, but it may as well not be. The only real thing you can get into trouble for is making and distributing.

    I thought everyone knew this? You can smoke pot almost anywhere, they wont bust you. They only go after people who deal it. In the mall you can buy Mari, pipes and whatever else. Everyone is OK with it. You`re allowed to get a permit to grow it in British Columbia.

    Potheads FTW!

    I live in Vancouver...

    I have smoked in plain view of a cop car on campus at UBC

    I have smoked many times in residence at UBC

    There are shops downtown (like the one in the story) that sell anything you need

    There are bars specifically for smoking weed

    A man told me once, that his friend went to court for something (traffic infraction) with a big bag of weed he forgot he had on him. A cop there busts him, goes to his superior and says "look at this! we got him!" and the other cop says "are you drating kidding me? just throw it away and let him go"

    I have smoked in front of a hotel with some of Lifehouse`s road crew. They said they would never be able to do that in the States

    This place rules

    As ignorant it is to want to be high, I guess your country having a pot problem is a hell of a lot better than having an alcohol problem.

    "Canada #1 at something?? Yeah, we`re also #1 at keeping our economy and our houses"

    I dont know what you mean by and our houses

    But you are no where near the top economically. GDP in the 30ks is not close to the top

    For years now, (until recently), Canada was the number 1 country in the planet as designated by the UN.

    Kudos to Canada!

    this doesnt surprise me in the least. cops here dont care about weed at all as long as it doesnt piss off your neighbors.(except for large grow ops)
