We all know the "deprivation of enjoyment" has to be pretty extreme for it to be any sort of legal issue or an issue any sort of government official will take seriously.

Unless these neighbours are walking over to you or queen's property and blowing pot smoke directly in your faces then there's no case to be made.

Faint smoke odors drifting by for a few minutes here and there... yet no one complains about the neighbor letting the car idle or the trucker who drives his tractor home and idles his diesel motor for ages stenching up the neighborhood.

Ya, so true. Get on the phone right now and complain to someone that the direction of the wind is impeding the enjoyment of your property.

Kinda stupid the way they did the rollout, saying they want to prevent non-legal sales, but they don't have legal product available in nearly the amounts that people are interested in. Supply chain seems to be seriously hampered, so not much competition for alternative sources. Maybe that was the deliberate plan in the first place? It's not like they didn't know it was coming, it was three years ago that Trudeau clearly said he would legalize pot very quickly.

I think most are just doing it for the novelty, so they can frame it and say "This was the first legal pot available in B.C."
Of course there are better, cheaper, more available sources. So until Gov't can compete reasonably, this plan, as it is now, is not going to work for legalized sales.

read it was nearly $7 for a single roll in AB, I doubt the sellers to friends sweating losing their customer base
I wouldn't stand in line for 6 hours for anything ( well if they ever decided to make Allan's green shoestring licorce.. that would be worth the time

I agree. There was plenty of time to prepare for this day. There could have and should have been dispensaries across the province fully-stocked, licensed and ready to go. Three years? No excuse. One has to wonder if there wasn’t some deliberate feat dragging somewhere in one or more bureaucracy meant to sabotage the rollout. In any case, until the legal supply is more available and convenient than the black market supply (and most pot smokers already got “their guy”) there will be no impact on organized crime. Instead they are choosing to focus law enforcement efforts at closing shops. Good call.

:135: Maybe someone wanted to give organized crime more time to adjust?
All of those people that still say Hillary lost the 2016 US election despite winning the popular vote - I expect you all to rip up
your Conservative party membership forms today, and stop whining about the idea Andrew Scheer will ever be PM of Canada.

Oh C'mon.

I can think of a couple good reasons why you may choose to buy from the government, and I suspect you're smart enough to come up with one or 2 as well.

I think many will buy from the government too...mainly those who just use it once in awhile...agree with Norma that the prices for a single jay is rather steep, but if someone is just buying it for a treat for the weekend or whatever, it will be cheaper and easier to get exactly what you want...also many people were fearing that some pot is being laced with fentanyl and that fear is gone by buying GovPot..

chronics though will most likely stick with their main suppliers...they smoke too much to afford Gov prices

AND the local dealers will deliver to your home faster than a 30 minute pizza. Local dealers may also offer other products that may be in-stock at the time and may even offer "front"/payment arrangements to their loyal customers.
