Smoke weed AND save come tax time!
With cannabis being legal for medical purposes in Canada, is it really so odd that the CRA now lets us write it off as a medical expense?
Now sitting beside items like insulin and a wheelchair, the agency sees no difference in it when it comes to these items or cannabis regarding a medical expense.
So what's the kicker?
Wedding bells and blunts mix wonderfully
With legalization in full effect, couples across North America are starting to integrate cannabis into the most important day of their life: their weddings.
Companies and individuals are specializing in providing cannabis bouquets, edibles, and of course - cannabis laden open bars. One couple from California even included over $8000 worth of cannabis at their wedding, replacing the traditional kiss to seal the deal with a giant dab.

"The department found that Bonify Medical Cannabis was possessing, distributing and selling product that was purchased from an illegal source, and selling product that did not comply with the good production practices as required under the Cannabis Act and cannabis regulations," Eric Morrissette, a Health Canada spokesperson said in a statement.

Lots of buds to be smoked in the City Of Champs.
We hear it every single day: 'do you guys sell weed?'
Buying weed in Edmonton can feel like a daunting task. A lot of folks think that the same bong shops they frequented for years would have their favorite plant in stock (no pun), but alas - no. The ALGC made sure shops like this would have to jump through expensive new hoops, and that most applications will likely not receive a license.
So where can a person score some bud in Edmonton?

Flying can be a stressful experience for some - so who wouldn't want to fly with some dank nugs? Thankfully, the Canadian government has been gracious enough to leave people alone with their foliage, and now allows them to board a plane with Cannabis without breaking the law.

If you're smoking for medical reasons or a recreational smoker - new or old - you're probably noticing the price of cannabis not getting quite as low as you may like. A survey by Stats Canada shows that Canadians pay on average less than 7 bucks for a gram of pot, but good luck finding retail prices that low.
