    They do seem to go through stock like wildfire. A few weeks back they had Chocolate Thai on special. The next day I went yo order and sold out. Same thing happened with the Wonka Bubblicious, sold out in no time. I was going yo get a half ounce of that. Too bad so sad. Sold out. That doesn't always happen but...

    I always purchase from the weekly promotions. They rotate the sales, so if there is a strain you want, it just may go on sale. I've purchased several varieties from them that were awesome; Pineapple Express, Raspberry Cough, Blue Diamond, Euphoria, Quantum Kush, Strawberry Hashplant, Super Sour Widow (way too potent for me) and many more.

    They are expensive and I when I purchase, I always purchase enough for free shipping. Their product is quality.

    Weeds Social Club is less expensive. A mixed ounce is $220. Your choice of strains from an eighth per stain and up. Also quality product.

    all these strains are currently available. it seems you like sativas hunh? me too. none of these are on sale though. 190-200 is not a bad price for quality herbs. the 300$ before free shipping however, sucks. they force you to purchase 300$ worth each time...

    what day does the weekly sale end/begin?? i'm thinking i might go with some sour tangie, strawberry hashplant, fortune cookies, euforia and chocolope for my first order!
    @Squiby if you try particular potent strains you consider amazing from Farmacy, please make a post. its nice to have reviews of strains before you buy.

    Super Sour Widow?? damn. too bad that ones not available!

    Weeds Social Club, they have an incredible selection! however i dont meet the criteria for membership.

    Just to clarify, the government in spring of 2017 will announce their plans for the legalization of recreation cannabis, but the laws will not come into effect until at least 2018 and possibly 2019.

    There was some talk about Herbal Dispatch, but those places are not meant for medical patients and actually charge a premium for products like their concentrates and etc. All the concentrated are a minimum of $10 more per gram than any competing medical dispensary.

    So if you are a medical patient, do yourself a favour and sign up with a proper LP if you want flowers or a mail order or brick and mortar medical dispensary if you want concentrates and pre-made edibles and etc. For example, I get grams of shatter, any strain, $45/gram or $25/half g. You can only split grams in 0.5s of 2 different strains and still get the $45/gram pricing.

    A gram of quality shatter at Herbal Dispatch is around $60 minimum, I can get it direct from the company they are selling as a registered patient for $45/gram.

    So don't waste your money if you are a legal medical patient.

    The law is the law still though... laugh at it and it will get you.

    From my perspective he could be doing it a lot differently and just be the voice of legalization instead of breaking the law.

    Just my opinion though....

    A dispensary in the town where I live continued selling medical cannabis after the law changed over last July in WA state. We just have state authorized cannabis stores now. In fact the police said they could stay selling the rest of their supply because they didn't want it on the streets as black market.

    Without even a warning three weeks later the police came and busted them. They confiscated their cash, cannabis, waxes and edibles. I haven't heard if they went to court. The dispensary tried to get a new cannabis license but were put so far down the list. They were told from the state that dispensaries in good standing wouldn't have to worry. They didn't apply until later on and it was too late.

    i agree, it's hard to `get behind him`and support him when he acts as such.
    peoples view on cannabis is finally opening up ; dont pull a reefer madness, Marc!

    of course the fed's will clean streets prior to opening their own recreational shop, monopoly at its best.

    Hah! It's funny, well not really funny, that in Vancouver all around those shops is junkie central and people OD on hard drugs daily. Yet the police allow an open market selling hard drugs. You can literally see the dealers on the corners. Funny! :cuss:

    Capitalist Plot Seen Behind Canadian Cannabis Raids

    Canada’s prince and princess of pot, activist-entrepreneurs Marc and Jodie Emery, have been charged with multiple trafficking-related counts, following the March 9 raids on their Cannabis Culture outlets in Vancouver, Toronto and Hamilton, Ont.

    CBC News reports that the duo face multiple charges including drug trafficking, possession for the purpose of trafficking, and conspiracy. Jodie Emery reacted to the busts by calling out the Trudeau government for hypocrisy.

    She told Canada’s Global News: “If this is legalization, then Justin Trudeau lied to the Canadian people. This is a new form of prohibition.”

    She urged Canadians to call Prime Minister Trudeau and “ask why we’re seeing more people being harmed under our so-called legalization than we ever saw under [ex-PM] Stephen Harper’s anti-marijuana policies.”

    She went on to pose a big-money power-play behind the raids: “This is about protecting the corporate profits of stock-market businesses. They have sent the police to arrest peaceful people to protect their own financial interest… Shame on the Toronto Police Service and the Toronto city government for harming peaceful people.”

    Just before the busts, the Toronto Globe & Mail reported that stocks in Canadian canna-businesses had been diving recently, as Trudeau’s legalization czar Bill Blair continues to say that Ottawa won’t rush into legalization.

    Blair, the former Toronto police chief, confirmed that a bill is due in parliament this spring—but was quick to emphasize that working out a regulatory framework would be a lengthy process, even after the bill passes. (This despite Trudeau’s campaign promise that there would be legal cannabis in Canada “right away.”)

    But perversely, Canada’s Financial Post reported that stocks in publicly-traded cannabis companies actually took a bounce after the Emery couple and three associated were arrested. The day after the news broke, Canopy Growth Corp closed nearly six percent higher on the Toronto Stock Exchange at $11.07. Aphria Inc was up six percent to close at $6.67, while Aurora Cannabis also rose six percent to close at $2.41.

    The new Emery case could determine what the future of Canada’s cannabis industry will look like.

    Dispensaries like the Cannabis Culture chain currently operate in a “grey area“—technically illegal at the federal level, but formally or informally tolerated by some local authorities. It remains to be seen if Canada’s legalization regime will provide more elbow room for dispensaries, or if the licensed producers created for the national medical marijuana system will also come to dominate the recreational market.

    Contacted for comment, David Malmo-Levine, the Vancouver-based activist who challenged cannabis prohibition in Canada’s courts, told HIGH TIMES: “The LPs are in direct competition with the dispensaries—and the dispensaries have advantages: 1) you can inspect and smell the pot before you buy, 2) you can ask the bud-tenders unlimited questions (and they have smoked it all so they can tell give you good information) and 3) there’s less bullshit—some dispensaries (like Cannabis Culture) just ask for ID and nothing else.”

    Malmo-Levine owns the Stressed & Depressed dispensary, one of several slated to come under official regulation by Vancouver city authorities. But the judge in the Emery case has issued a formal order that the couple cease operation of Cannabis Culture.

    Just a huge scare tactic, but so many shops are open. And the amount of Canadian Online Shops shipping weed out is crazy lol.

    A lot of online shops selling weed.

    There was a weed club in Burlington Ontario that was shut down. I wanted to go to grab a few grams. But nope. I was too late. I'm not fond of ordering shit online because I like to grab 2 grams of different shit every so often. I don't like having a ton of weed around anymore. Store is just easier. It's like buying booze.

    Burlington's First is done for good? I visited them at their new location beside Kumar's, but that was a couple of months back I think. They do shut down and re-open all the time, sometimes for a couple of weeks at a time.

    Lots of online you can buy 1g at a time...not super cost effective but given your low consumption should not be an issue. checkout thcdelivery.ca which is my go-to....love them.

    Thanks for the website. And I assume they are safe to order from and ship. My concern is shipping prices for the low quantity I buy. And yes Burlington has been closed for about 1-2 months. Unless you know otherwise. I never went. And when I was going to go it was dunzo.

    Canada is reportedly set to legalize recreational marijuana

    Legal status will reportedly go into effect by July 1, 2018

    Recreational marijuana will soon be legal nationwide in Canada, a recent report from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) stated.

    The new legislation — which is in line with both Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s pledge to legalize and regulate marijuana and with the November recommendations of a federally appointed task force on the drug — is expected to be introduced the week of April 10, the Sunday report said.

    for Recreational users TOO .
    ie : proof of purchase from Safe Gov't source and Not
    bought from the Un-safe Black Market ...

    Wait a minute, I haven't read into the details, but heard that every household will be able to grow 4 plants?

    And provinces will decide for themselves how to sell, age etc? Did I miss something?
