So I was watching this news special on MTV this morning about weed, mainly medicinal marijuana in the U.S. but there was also a feature on British Columbia. I guess they were just liek in downtown Vancouver and they were showing all these smoke shops that were liek Amsterdam style where there were just people blazing up in these cafes. They were sayign that usually the cops didn't even bother them and all, and this one guy who owned one of these shops was even selling like mass bags out of this place. He just had varieties like lined up out front and what had to be at least 10 pounds worth of what looked liek oz. bags on the back.
Then they were like on these islands off the coast of Vancouver where there were all these guys with dozens of plants just in their living room and they would take them in their canoes down to the states and sell them. They said the cops didn't even raid the homes as long as they didn't actually have evidence they were selling the buds.
So what I'm wondering is, is this just MTV exaggerated bullshit or is BC really this lax on weed. I know a bunch of people on this site live in Vancouver and all, so I'm wondering can you guys just walk into one of these cafes and start blazing and whatnot??
