"The Canadian government seems to agree. Under the federal Cannabis Act championed by Liberal Party Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Canada became the second country in the world to legalise the recreational usage and purchase of cannabis and related products. The newly legalised industry stands to generate up to C$6.5 billion (US$5 billion) in sales by 2020, according to Statistics Canada. In the neighbouring United States, where the drug can be legally consumed in nine states and used for medical purposes in 31, the industry grew to US$8.7 billion last year. Total North American spending on legal cannabis is expected to reach US$47.3 billion by 2027.
Still, the mind-altering drug remains a symbol of the cultural divide between older generations of Asian-Canadian immigrants and their children."
As a person of Asian Heritage I can say in Korean/Japanese culture drugs such as cannabis/coke/heroin is taboo and back home I know its very hard to come by, but over drinking and getting wasted isn't frowned on but accepted?
5 years? for 1 baggy? really ? really??? the yakuza spend less time in jail for assault and you give this dude 5 years for 1 baggy???
South Korean also looks down on cannabis and the cops really come down hard on you and its very unpopular in currently Korean culture.
So be grateful were in Canada and toke on tokers.
