Everyone knows that marijuana is illegal. So why does Canada seem to be awash in pot? You can buy it openly in a surprising number of ways and places. The system the federal government set up to give people access to medical marijuana is broken. Could it be that something’s happening out there and no one told Prime Minister Stephen Harper? Mark Kelley exposes some real Pot Fiction.

Eli Consoli says:

It's already legal guy, Hence the fact the Vancouver Police allow them to operate. The fact of the matter is it's time to decriminalize it, people can still get in trouble wit the police for possession. this is hugely contradictory if there's places in the country where it's sold to people who get the prescription fro a doctor at the dispensary itself. fortunes will be made here, unfortunately. However this new industry will still be more bifocal then any other pre-existing multi-billion dollar market. So get ready to light up people!!

John Jeffrey says:

I have been a grower for 30+ years (I grow for med use exclusively now)…
I was the designated grower for a few federal exemptees (and many more unlicensed folks) and to be honest; I recommended to anyone that asked that they should simply grow their own and avoid publicity rather than jump through the hoops that they had to in order to get exemption status. I am hopeful that the new Lib govt under JT legalizes it..but I will remain cautiously optimistic, and keep my seeds ready for summer 2016…

DoctorMindo says:

One pound for personal use? I wouldn't believe it either.

greendawg aa says:

Too bad the only ones getting a liscence to grow have connections to the Trudeaus. How many millions will Trudeau make off the backs of the taxpayers using his political and business connections to monopolize the industry?
