It may sound odd, but lots of American pot smokers are moving to Canada just to be able to smoke their favorite drug, without criminal repercussions. Well, to each his own, but these pot smokers may not be seeing the whole picture. For one thing, it's a pretty valuable thing to be an American. Lots of people risk their lives trying to get into the US. Others risk jail time and other things trying to stay here illegally. Then, there's the health aspect. Maybe some of the potheads will chop up their stash and sprinkle it into the foods and drinks. I suspect though that the majority will take it the traditional way of smoking it. As George H. Bush use to say >> "Bad! Bad!" Did these pot smokers not think years of smoking pot (inhaling to the deepest part of their lungs) would not have a harmful effect on their health ? I saw signs of some pot smoking campaigners when the law was being debated. They said >> "Have fun!"...with a picture of a burning reefer. What may be "fun"to a young person now, may not be so much fun 30 years later, when all that puffing takes its toll on their older bodies. Then it may be too late to turn back the years of cardiac-pulmonary abuse. For me, I'll stick with clean air, for my lungs. I suppose some long-time pot smokers may say they've been smoking it for 30 years (or more), and they're in great health. They can't compare themselves with how they'd be if they had not smoked all those years, however. I would tend to doubt their magnified speculations. Lastly, Canada may not realize the full impact of this legalization. What effect will it have on their government health system 30 years from now ? And don't they have tough regulations about air pollution?
