If you haven't played The Witcher 3, that's the one to get. Don't worry about not playing the other games, I hadn't really either (aborted my play of Witcher 2 about 2 hours in). Still the best game for miles and miles on any platform.

...the government sold me some cannabis. It arrived in the mail today, almost two weeks after it was legalized here in Canada. It's only available online in this province and ludicrously high demand (pun intended) led to some delivery delays. It smells very nice. I got four joints for $35 (about £20); the quality seems good although it's on the expensive side.

In other countries, large amounts of public money is being spent on catching and punishing those who partake. It seems... silly.

Did you read about how some people are cashing in on the legalisation?

Is it though? Genuine question. Not something I've researched but at least in this country it seems that most policing around cannabis concerns those using it as a revenue stream to fund organised crime. Makes you wonder how those criminals would raise that money otherwise.

Personally, I find everything about cannabis skanky. Anything that keeps some distance between it and me is welcome. If they could ban distastful cannabis themed posters, jewlery, clothing, tobacco tins and tattoos then even better!

It's a whole lot less dangerous than booze.  I very rarely smoke it as I don't particularly like the effects, but I'm all for taking it out of criminal hands and not lumping it in with actual dangerous drugs.  Stoners are boring, but not exactly a threat to public safety.

Depends. If you're white and middle class and not dealing in industrial quantities, it might as well be legal. If you're poor white, or from an ethnic minority, it can provide a very handy pretext for nicking you.

I may be remembering this wrong, but I thought I read somewhere that the only reason cannabis was made illegal is because it was competing with the tobacco industry.

Same for me, despite owning a few Dr. Dre T-shirts and Bryan Talbot underground comix in my time.
Each to their own of course, but I always found it pretty repulsive.
