Alberta pot shops now allowed to take down window coverings after robberies

We still have the coverings here and I wonder what purpose they serve. We do have a big scary security guard that cards everybody though. When I asked him about what he did on vacation he seemed genuinely happy that someone engaged him. :D

I've never seen a guard in a cannabis store. The stores are usually bright and friendly, but you just can't see in from the outside. I assume the one way glass is so that the elderly people can't see anything before they go in. Because that is usually who I see in their stores, babas in the 70s and 80s.

Alberta cannabis sales slow to grow as online identity verification deters consumers, say retailers


I found the government online portal very convenient. I could log on with MADI, and they would ship it to my mailbox or a courier pick up location.

Now, I have no trust in these private companies to respect my privacy. I'd rather just go in to a store, but I never know what they have. Even at the government store, I rarely bought the same product twice, because many I only ever saw once.

$1:
Duclos said that since legalization, 70 per cent of Canada's cannabis market has moved from the illegal economy to legal and regulated sources of supply.

Erskine-Smith said displacing the illicit marketplace for cannabis has to be a central goal of any cannabis legalization legislation and a core component of the federal government's agenda overall.

"We are going to displace the illicit marketplace. It's only a matter of time and you are going to, over the next three years, five years and 10 years, see those numbers shift," he said. "The legal marketplace will be where Canadians continue to turn."

70%? I find that hard to believe.

Also take into consideration that anyone can grow their own legally. Not a difficult thing to do. It's just a plant... :wink:

You can't grow it if you rent in most places and never mind condos.

I can understand it if you rent if that includes not being allowed to have any houseplants at all. Obviously, growing it indoors comes with many more risks but outdoors... what's the big deal? As long as you don't have more than a couple for personal use only and not a mass production going and that it's not bothering anyone.

I live in a condo (I own) and there has been nothing at all specified as to what types of plants or flowers you might have growing on your deck.

A funny thing... a few years ago the previous strata president put forth at the AGM expanding a smoking ban from not just a ban on common property (which is totally reasonable) but to extend it to not even within your own unit at all. It was shot down by a big margin. I somehow doubt that there are that many cigarette smokers in my complex but other types of smokers... The issue has not been revived since.

It's actually not as easy as you'd think. :)

The biggest problem I've had is never getting the same seed variety twice from government stores. That makes it difficult to learn the needs of the plant to maximize yield. And I grow both indoor and outdoor, so that changes things too.

I started growing in 1971... all legal, of course. 8)
