Canada Suffers Embarrassing Problem After Pot Prohibition Ends

I have a solution for this, but Attorney General Jeff Sessions isn’t going to like it.

Marijuana

As Bob Dylan famously muttered in his distinctly dodgy drawl – “The times, they are a’changin'”.

We live in a world where our ability to share knowledge instantaneously has us reexamining a number of subjects in which we were previously held hostage by the “official” story.  This is partly the reason why conspiracy theories are so prevalent in today’s culture:  We know so much more about the world around us now that it is nearly impossible to ignore even the most absurd of connections.

One of the largest changes in the world during this information transformation has been a renewed interest in the power of cannabis, and how legalization of the mildly intoxicating plant can be an incredible financial and medicinal advantage to nations willing to embrace it.

Trending: Popularity of Avocados Leads to Staggering Increase in Emergency Room Visits

Such in the case in Canada, where last week the plant was made recreationally legal on a national level.

This has caused an embarrassing problem for Canadians:  They’ve run out of weed.

Canada can’t keep up with demand for newly legal weed. Four days after the country put marijuana legalization into effect nationally, retail shops are nearly sold out.

“It’s a mess. The supply is just a mess,” Patrick Wallace, owner of the Alberta shop Waldo’s 420 Store, told CBC.

Canada’s Parliament voted to legalize marijuana in June, and that decision went into effect on Wednesday, with differing rules across Canada’s provinces. The newly legal industry is expected to be worth $6.5 billion in annual sales.

The problem started on the first day of legalization, when customers across Quebec, Saskatchewan, Canada’s Northwest Territories, Newfoundland, and online shops all had trouble securing legal weed, Vice reported.

Stores selling marijuana are issued licenses to do so, but even those licensed shops haven’t been able to access enough supply when it’s time to reorder. Orders storeowners placed have in some cases only contained part of what was requested, and demand for that limited supply has far exceeded expectations.

Now, I’ve certainly done my share of pleading with anyone who would listen about the possible ramifications of legalizing marijuana across the board here in the United States, specifically citing the fact that Canadian farmers have neither the climate or the agricultural prowess to compete with their counterparts here in the United States.  Should we legalize this plant, we would quickly and easily become the world’s #1 producer and exporter of marijuana.

And when the coughing Canucks can’t get enough of their locally-sourced products, who do you think they’ll turn to?

Jerry Nadler’s ‘Spray and Pray’ Subpoena Schtick Targets More White House Insiders

For Jerry Nadler, denial isn’t just a river in Egypt.

Jerry Nadler

There is an obvious pall of discontent hanging over the democratic party in the wake of the release of the Mueller report. Robert Mueller’s 22 month long investigation into the “RussiaGate” conspiracy theory has left us with more questions than answers, at least in some regard, as President Trump and his team continue to tout the report’s broader realizations.  “No obstruction, no collusion” has become a battlecry as of late, even as federal lawmakers insist that Mueller intended for Congress to make a decision on the “obstruction” piece. Of the democrats looking to continue their digging into the now-completed Mueller report, Jerry Nadler has been instrumental in stoking the fires of discontent, scattering subpoenas throughout Washington DC in hopes of “getting” President Trump…one way or another. His latest legal maneuver is targeting Don McGhan, former White House counsel, who disobeyed the President’s wishes, according to the Mueller report. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., on Monday subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify publicly next month following last week’s release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation. Nadler described McGahn, who stepped down as White House counsel in October 2018, as “a critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the Special Counsel’s report.” “The Special Counsel’s report, even in redacted form, outlines substantial evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction and other abuses,” Nadler said. “It now falls to Congress to determine for itself the full scope of the misconduct and to decide what steps to take in the exercise of our duties of oversight, legislation and constitutional accountability.” Nadler has given McGhan a set of deadlines as well, urging the former Trump lawyer to testify before May 21, and provide underlying documents regarding…

President Trump and Family Sue Congress Over Tax Tussle

The President is fighting back against the “resistance” democrats who subpoenaed his tax returns…but will the tactic work?

Trump Foundation

Democrats the nation over are digging in their heels after the release of the Mueller report, vowing to continue “resisting” the President no matter what, and by any means necessary. The media have done their part by continuing to divide the nation down political lines in ways that our nation hasn’t seen since The Civil War.  These cable-news cheerleaders are hoping that the nation erupts into chaos, as it will provide them with juicy, can’t-miss television to fuel their advertisers. In this continued crusade to somehow “get” the President, a number of prominent democrats are now revisiting the fight to have the President’s tax returns made public…something that Trump himself has fought nail and tooth against. Now, the Commander in Chief is taking his fight to the next level with a lawsuit. President Donald Trump and his business filed suit against Democratic House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings on Monday to block a subpoena sent last week seeking information about the president’s finances. In the complaint filed in Washington, D.C., federal court Monday morning, Trump’s lawyers said that Democrats have “declared all-out political war” against him. “Subpoenas are their weapon of choice,” the filing states. The lawsuit comes just days after a congressional committee filed subpoenas for several years’ worth of Donald Trump’s tax returns. The President has long avoided making such records public, citing advice from his lawyers regarding ongoing federal audits of the data.
