    Cheaper than medical and although I have no recent grey market experience, I'd say it's on par, especially if you factor in the selection and quality. A grey market dealer is going to have a hell of a time competing when you can walk into the liquor store and leave with some premium pot legally.

    https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/fed...nvicted-of-simple-possession-of-pot-1.4136863

    OTTAWA – The federal government will announce on Wednesday morning that it intends to proceed with a plan to grant pardons to Canadians who have past simple possession charges.

    Sources have confirmed to CTV News that the government intends to issue pardons, and not record expungements or amnesty, for cases of possession of 30 grams or less, as that will be legal as the new recreational legalization regime comes into force at midnight tonight.

    At a joint press conference at 9:15 a.m. in Ottawa Wednesday, the main ministers involved on the cannabis file -- Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor, and Border Security and Organized Crime Minister Bill Blair -- will speak with reporters about the way forward on this in broad terms, and about other issues as legalization rolls out across Canada.

    The pardons won't be granted immediately, but ministers are expected to outline options that could be used to facilitate the pardon process, and potential ways to expedite the sometimes protracted endeavor.

    One option could be an application-based approach, where people would have to fill out a form to qualify.

    Asked about pardons on the Hill earlier on Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said “we’re going to be working on that as I’ve said, as soon as the day of legalization comes into force.”

    NDP MP Murray Rankin tabled a private member’s bill earlier this month that pushed for the expungement of records of anyone who carries a criminal record for past minor, non-violent pot possession convictions. By his estimate there are hundreds of thousands of Canadians that carry personal possession charges for marijuana.

    I have trouble supporting that.The criminal record is because they broke the law, not because they had weed on them.

    Good thing for some of the hundreds of thousands of Canadians with possession charges, many of which affect their day to day lives, careers, and travel for no reason other than a stupid law...your opinion is not being considered.

    They don't have a criminal record because of a stupid law, they have a criminal record because they broke the law. Exactly who forced them to? Hundreds of thousands may have broken it, but millions somehow managed not to.

    While I agree they broke the law, it never should have been against the law in the first place. I can see both sides.

    You realize this is people making a statement of I historic moment in Canadian historu. A week from now there will be no lines at all. People calling people in line losers is way uncalled for, been seeing it all over FB and Twitter. No more a loser to celebrate this moment than people standing in lines for the latest Apple product.
