    Canadian weed is all a scam, all they sell is extracted weed….For those that don’t know they make shatter out of the weed then sell the "legal" weed as new. Most people don’t have a clue. Look at what weed is and compare to the garbage they are selling! No wonder the industry is going broke

    Are they creating another pandemic?

    We really don’t need the Canadian product. Our weather is better for growth anyway. So, once it is federally legalized, we got it. 🇺🇸😊

    Drake the investor in guaranteed brain damage. He is an "inspiration" for kids and black kids specifically.
    Instead of giving back to the community, by investing in motivational education, creative arts or trades… it’s much easier making easy money on people with issues.
    Drake choose to be a forgotten label & name. Banned!!!

    One actual difference he could’ve talked about was product packaging Canada vs US. In Canada, companies are very limited in how much branding they can achieve on the packaging. This is because they’re required to have lots of warning labels. They’re also not allowed to claim effects that a cannabis product may cause (feel happy, tired, relaxed). Packaging also can’t be visually appealling to children (mostly meant for edibles but also extents to fun looking mascots/characters). Basically means most Canadian cannabis product packaging takes on a minimalist aesthetic. Most US states have more lenient packaging regulations which results in a more typical branded packaging like you’d see in the food & beverage industries.

    Overall not the most important difference, but one that’d be obvious if you’d been to dispensaries both in Canada & the US…. better than "Very different vibe…Ah. Earth tones!"
