What's with this pot legalisation nonsense in the media? It's a non-story. The people who already smoke pot are still going to be smoking pot. The people who aren't aren't. Legions of pot-smokers are not going to magically appear and wreak havoc. Nothing is going to happen, nothing is going to change.

They're just scrounging for last minute brownie points.  Isn't there an election coming up soon?

I don't agree on no change.
Canada will become one of the richest counties on the planet.
We will be taxing the smoke now, our coffers will swell.
We can afford the pure socialist dream and an end to poverty.

Tourism will sky rocket as happy pot heads come for a casual vacation where they don't have to pack their paranoia.
Our smoke shops will be supplying the top of the line products. They have been on the Reservations for over a year.

We will become the next great super power until the rest of the world fallows suit.

As this is unfolding as a power play, there is going to be monumental propaganda from those who find it more beneficial to keep the sale of pot in the hands of the criminals.

You have a point there. More than one, come to think of it.

Like Copenhagen, people will come here for the pot 'n' prostitutes. Also, the point is being made that pot will bring back the business to bars that was lost when smoking was nixed.

There will be no pot smoking allowed in bars. Not in Canada, well maybe on the Res.
You can step out 15 ft or so away from the door and light up as you can with tobacco and not get hassled by the constabulary.
It will be tightly regulated as to where you can publicly consume your smoke.
Public beaches, not on a bet, private camp site, all yours to enjoy.
Pretty much the same rules as drinking alcohol in public.

Don't get me started on making prostitution legal.
I'm all for it, they should be licensed as all other, "trade," workers are,
Not as if they are going to vanish unless a serial killer is looking for easy victims.

Exactly. And if it is legal, then human trafficking can begin to be addressed. Until prostitution is legal, pimps and other illegal activities prosper, making child trafficking more likely. Make all the illegal control of prostitution disappear, and have the government use govt agencies to license, and health departments to see to  sexual health, and we begin to make a dent in the subjugation of women. We also ensure the public health and safety, which is afterall the only function of governments anyway. It's the oldest profession for a reason, I say, make it legal, and regulated. Women might be able to keep their money too.
