  • Aw poor cute baby, I hope she's okay now.

  • RIP Charlotte Figi.

  • My suggestion for the Canadian Medical Cannabis Program is to make it available to anyone via a Governmental or Health Canada website where any Canadian can fill out an application for the benefits of the medical program over regular legal usage. This should include things like being able to carry or have more than 30g for regular usage & being able to claim some of your medical cannabis supply on your income tax like how it is currently available in the medical program & other benefits for being a medical user.

  • I smoke stinky and proud of it of course but what is that song in the beginning its weed smokin mellow music

  • You voted for it and now you got it! Thanks assholes for shoe horning in more regulation! An American should know better

  • Liberal Journalism is a joke

  • Marijuana is the only safe & healthy thing to do. Even more than legal prescription pills. The only side effects are happy hungry sleepy(not always in that order tho). It can help with depression, bi polar, insomnia, anxiety & panic attacks, seizures, epilepsy, & many types of physical pain, not to mention the positive feedback on recent studies with types of cancer & leukemia too. & technically marijuana is not a drug..drugs are manmade chemicals, marijuana is a plant. But if some really do consider it a drug..alright, but its not a dangerous one, no one has ever died solely from smoking weed & its not a gateway to shit if you're smart about it. A lot of shit thats legal can be a gateway drug. Alcohol is as bad as crack/cocaine & meth & heroine is, & tobacco/nicotine is bad for health too people die from all that shit in one way or another every day. It really is just a plant yet its still mostly illegal, while shit you CAN die from is still legal..thats fucked up. Personally im not against smoking weed for medical purposes, as long as its not near kids, & the smoker is at least 18 or 21. I hope its legalized soon.

  • Whoa

  • This video is now null and void.

  • Weed is leagal in Canada ūüėÄ 2018

  • Holy fuck. 55 grams a day??? How is that possible. Dude has got to be perma stoned. Unless he's on a CBD flower

  • 55 grams a day, now that's just abuse. This guy is just being a baby and crying just cause his weed is changing and for ing him to see his drug problem.

  • Damn.. it's so cheap in Canada, wtf ūüôĀ

  • I'm battling chronic & terminal illnesses since childhood here in Michigan, and have had total renal failure, PEs, and heart failure, all from the TOXIC DEADLY RX DRUGS! I now cannot handle taking enough Rx meds to treat my symptoms, and even though cannabis is the only thing that treats ALL MY SYMPTOMS (severe full body chronic pain, nervous system seizures, TMJ/severe dental problems, migraines, severe anxiety/depression, severe full body chronic nausea, temp sensitivity & inability to control body temp, etc)
    I am forced to live in $700/mo and HALF of it goes to MMJ. I can barely squeeze in my rent, power, and prepaid phone in the other half. I am not using NEARLY enough cannabis, and am still homebound because I cannot take enough to be functional. I am only able to afford enough to keep me EXISTING, and though I've given up all my dreams & wishes, the ONLY thing that will save me from dying a 3rd time, alone, in my toxic HUD apt, is if I can get someone to help me get a van, bus, or camper, and I can drive myself to a state where I can afford to LIVE for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE! As my life goes, it's a 1 in a million chance I will ever get out of here to experience anything my whole life other than being tortured as a medical guinea pig!

  • If it helps on your body, well get the weed lol. But i notice is natural and better than other harsh drugs from the government. But remember guys that we live in a society that sell drugs legally and those drugs harm the human body to a point of been addicted. But weed is kinda natural and way better to use if you have a medical issue. I congrat to the people that fight for this plant to be legal for those people that need it. We need to be open mind and let them have it cuz it makes them whole again.

  • I'm a Canadian patient and if it wasn't for the product for medical I would still be on the high dose of oxy and that crap hurts your stomach

  • Is MegaIll heaven..?

  • My friend buys medical Marijuana shit from the Toronto dispensary and sells it in peel region

  • He does not need 55 grams a day. He probably only smokes a fifth of that and sells the rest, he is just mad Canada is getting wiser and cracking down on jerks like him. People who try to take advantage of the system for a quick buck make the rest of the legalization community look bad.

  • wait did that guy say he was taking 55 grams a day? holy shit, i thought i was being greedy smoking a couple grams to myself!

  • for sure hit up mega illl

  • Damn… I want a medical marijuana restaurant in Washington….

  • Seriousness is missing in the marijuana medical research. That pizza shop is not helping. It's like HIV medicines were sold in cafeterias. It just leaves the idea that those guys aren't really sick and want to get high. Prejudices relative to hippy attitudes have to be erased of the collective's¬†unconscious if the promoters want that marijuana can be tackled as a medical alternative

  • I need to hit up that pizza shop

  • This idea of medical marijuana is full of bull crap! A person looking for CBD for PURELY HEALTH BENEFITS is extremely hard to find because over 95 percent of the products will make you stoned or give you a high with THC! People will long-term chronic health conditions and are in bed often with their condition don't need to be more stoned!!! They need to control their pain and feel energy so they can function! There is extreme shortage of this product and if there is anything it extremely EXPENSIVE for the sick person to afford long-term, if they have access to it at all, due to it not being government funded!!

  • 10.56 lol he's a you tuber

  • Cool it's mark klokeid

  • There is a huge problem with the new health Canada Cannabis Programme the product produces will be 300 % increase in the end cost to the user of Medical Cannabis. ¬†The governments' own accountants found this¬†abhorrent¬†in the least. ¬†The cost to¬†patents¬†who like me live on a fixed income will not be¬†abate¬†to pay the increase¬†prices¬†that are already going up beyond what most patients can pay. ¬†Mr Conway was never going to take this court action to court. ¬†This is why I¬†encourage¬†as many¬†patients as¬†possible¬†to¬†plead¬†their cases before the¬†Nations' court¬†system.¬†¬†I¬†am¬†doing¬†mine with only a bit of help¬†from Legal help.

  • Interesting word play in this clip de boxilize is not a word and there is a huge misnober about CBD there is only one strain of hemp not cannabis that is legal in Canada this help strain has no psychoactive cannabinoids but has CDB this would be perfect for kids to use but not discussed in this clip.

  • My cousin did weed once and his eyeball exploded

  • The other side of it too is all this is a big motherfucking scam. There is so much bread to be made. I¬† mean come on people. They are all nickel and diming the whole fucking scene to death.¬† I am temtped to get my own scene happening far away up north all private like. Because this marihuana is phenomenal for that phantomlimb and the tingling. I am in paradise tonight because my fricking stump doe not hurt at all.¬† I take an opioid first thing in the morning and that is the only one that ever actually¬† kills the pain then as the day goes on¬† I have to get creative with music, drums, guitar,¬† I bought a yukele.¬† It is so much fun to play that before the L ord. Life is good when the pain settles down and¬† I can be present with Him.

  • Neuropathic pain. the bane of my existence as that tingle is on almost constantly and it is about a 6 out of ten all the time except when I take Cesamet or smoke good marijuana. I had maybe two tiny pufss and sat down and played my drums while I am still pain free after an hour or so. Thank God for this stuff.¬† I don't think I¬† should be smoking it everyday,¬† I am not convinced of my ability to stave off amotivational syndrome. For me there is a trade off. I¬† should have my medical supply by the end pf two weeks. I t will not be something¬† i use the way my prescription tells it as the price even for people on disability is steep. Now P rairie Science who used to be Health Canada's dealer has closed there doors but with a subsidy one can get weed with a THC content of 22 percent for about 3 dollars a gram but they are not taking anynew clients until the end of this year. /They seem to have about some of the best weed.

  • I agree with all. It should be legalized especially the oil etc… but this host isn't making the argument any easier being stoned, high and acting like an idiot….
    BUT the other side of me says. He is having fun and not hurting anyone either so live and let live.

  • Marijuana ameliorating seizures?¬† Well duh!¬† The endocannabinoid system in the human brain is one of the major neuropeptide inhibitory systems for glutamate, the neurochemical responsible for seizure activity.

  • Im sorry but if you are saying you use 55 grams a day the only way you are is if your smoking bho cuz no one person could smoke 55 grams a day

  • It's called moderation idiots weed is so less harmful if we just do it a couple times a month dude totally pro Marijuana here's a fact when they make it legal it's lowers painkiller use big pharma anytime got a local doctor that go met kids and there friends hooked on perks and painkillers Addy coke zanies guess all over kids r dying in high school from Zanex there heart stoppers fuck people

  • i really fucking hate HARPER

  • amazing a pizza guru. smart ass pot heads.I don't use weed. but id love to try that pizza.lol. if weed even only helps a few even just a little it should be available without a doubt.

  • Irrespective of what people think the harms of recreational cannabis may be, what kind of monster would deny a child effective life changing medicine ? There is no argument that any reasonable person would accept.¬†

  • Tobacco is way more harmful then marijuana yet the government still sell it and criminalize use of marijuana fucking government i hate em all especially stephen harper.

  • I said it before and I'll say it again. If a greater then 50% of Canadians want it legal for recreational and medical use the governments job is not to just do what they feel is right. I'm not saying kids should have it just treat it like alcohol for the rec users and stop forcing medical users to become dependant on dozens of addictive and honestly harmful prescription drugs. Everyone knows the facts yet they still want it. As adults able to make mature decisions about our own lives what right does the government have to tell us how to live our lives. You get one shot at existing on this giant floating rock do what makes your time here enjoyable ad long as your not hurting anyone else who cares. I'm aware there are some people who couldn't handle anything really be it alcohol drugs porn any "vice" there will always be a percentage of people who over indulge. The actions of the few shouldn't affect the choices of the many.

  • MARK!

  • lucky bastard gettin free skunk n complainin cos he has a lump M8 giz a ten bag

  • Oh, Harper. You're doing such a fantastic job.

    Time to HEAVE STEVE !!!!

  • random girl when i was really injured and on the pain medication i couldnt eat at all. WHEN!!!! bitch dont got pain no more. people who smoke ciggerettes are forced outside in the freezing cold soon to be banned from patios. stoners need to be forced outside to. why let them relax smoking the ganja in a nice establishment. tobacco smokers pay taxs. they get the shaft. but this entire legal giant corporation legalization is how everything else is legalized. you dont see people on oxys growing poppys in there house.

  • I don't give a shit about weed either way because I don't use it. I'm just here for the comments.

  • I'm surprised so many people have actually some brains left when it comes to this weed drug thing. I thought majority of people had been brainwashed that marijuana is good for you somehow. I was going down that path myself when I was young. Luckily I never tried it. Drugs are for weak minded people that use this as an excuse to "treat cancer". It's just an excuse to get high.

  • nice

  • prime minister Harper is the biggest fucking moron in the history of Canada. That piece of shit is against everything, unless it has to do with the US or oil.
