My comment: 

British Columbia is a tobacco/alcohol province despite the impression the media and the in-your-face pot protesters might give.  Nevertheless, the black/grey market for cannabis is well established and as most of you on these fora can easily guess, it primarily consists of decentralized  production and distribution networks. 

Given the obstacles that BC social conservatives placed in the path of cannabis legalization, it is absolutely no surprise that the black market continues to flourish.
 
That may be the case for you, but here in the southeast US where it is still mostly illegal, the price has plummeted to less than half price and the quality has gone up as the supply of high grade legal is flooding the black market.   For the past 3 or 4 years it is has been happy days for the old wallet!

2020 candidate Andrew Yang promises to legalize marijuana and pardon all non-violent drug offenders on 4/20 if he's elected


Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang pledged to legalize marijuana at the federal level if elected president and pardon all those who've been incarcerated for non-violent, drug-related offenses.

"I would legalize marijuana and then I would pardon everyone who's in jail for a nonviolent drug-related offense," Yang said at the National Action Network conference in New York City on Wednesday. "I would pardon them on April 20, 2021 and I would high-five them on the way out of jail."

I never buy hash in Madrid anyhow - strictly Barcelona or Granada for me.  "Faeces" seems so much more sanitary when spelled that British way.

I was looking at the Gettin' your drink on thread and was thinking to myself.

Self:   You have lots of work (including some serious number crunching) to do but seeing how we are finally having pleasant warm, sunny weather (17C to 20C), and it is Sunday, wouldn't it be nice to take a small hit off the bubbler (home-grown Indica and Sativa mixed) and then putter around the garden?   Finish processing the latest batch of compost.

Well, there's habituation. It more commonly happens to people who haven't tried it before, like those seniors, but no one is immune. It just takes a bigger dose (or a more potent variety). Like too many of those brownies in one go.

 
Oh yea, I am fully aware I got that in spades.{#Lol}

As far as I've heard or read, an OD of weed is much more associated with "food stuffs" than it is with smoking, e.g.: since the effects are not as quickly experienced, user may ingest more than is advisable.

 
Precisely that is what I was saying.

True.  But you and I both smoke.  Lots of people (including my wife) do not want to smoke.  Period.  These people are not interested in smoking anything.

Carefully eating a small amount of edibles and then patiently waiting results in a lethargic deep sense of relaxation and, like smoking, distracts from any pain.   

FWIW, I fully expect the number of North American adults who consume edibles to triple or more over the next decade.   Hopefully, these new edible consumers will be very, very careful so as to not accidentally poison others.  

Blowing cannabis smoke in other peoples' faces is not cool.  Poisoning folks with edible cannabis is not cool.
