9 hours ago by NOW MagazineIn Toronto, some condo boards are planning to ban smoking weed inside both individual units and on balconies.7 hours ago
Yo I knew this guy who lived in a condo i heard his cat smelled some of his neighbors mariiguana and it died7 hours ago
Good luck with enforcement. If the person owns the property, the ownership trumps prosecution of legal behavior within ones own property. We tried to ban smoking - period- in our condo building. It was basically unenforceable within units. Just think about it for a second, what kind of punishment could they inflict that would be legally enforceable. Who would enforce it? Etc. Etc. There are countless rules in Condo buildings that are unenforceable, and the only way it becomes a legal issue is if someone has verifiable damage to property or self because of the banned activity. The police won’t respond to a complaint of a legal activity. It will be up to the internal management of the building, and therefore, if you want to behave however you want, start paying attention to your condo business. Get involved. Also, with medical exemptions, there is even less ability for enforcement as you are not legally required to provide medical information to unlicensed individuals. Claim it’s medical. Refuse release of your medical documents. Smoke away. People are so ridiculous in their incessant need to control others and this strange blatant fear of cannabis. We had way more trouble with drunks in our condo building...think we could ban drinking? Come on.9 hours ago
They'd better plan on banning chemotherapy, insulin, IV home treatments, etc as well. The logic behind this statement??
Cannabis is medicine. MEDICINE. I'd be DEAD without it. I have a disease called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, along with gastroparesis (stomach paralysis). It infuriates me how a neighbour would rather me be an opioid addict to manage my illness, rather than use cannabis. A neighbour thinks they have the goddamn RIGHT to tell me what MEDICINE I can use because I share walls with them?! Absolute nonsense.
My reality is 38 pills a day without cannabis. Would neighbours REALLY rather me have buckets of PILLS lying around, than cannabis? Would those neighbours REALLY rather an addict for a neighbour? Would they prefer me not to have access to cannabis, and be cool with listening to me sob in pain, watch the ambulances come to hospitalize and tube feed me AGAIN? Would a neighbour be cool with knowing I need those pills, I have young kids, and they make me a zombie and a bad parent?
Unless we are stripping residents of access to chemo, insulin and the like, this shall remain absolute BULLSHIT, and wildly unfair. It's a fucking SMELL, people. A smell. Second hand smoke barely has enough THC in it to cause intact highs unless you're hotboxing on purpose. THC,THCa, CBN, CDB are absorbed while lung tissue is expanding (breathing in), so unless you're at your vent huffing your neighbors apartment, you should be fine. As well, making it legal to smoke indoors in your home will cut down on the trafficking, because people will be able to legally purchase and medicate for themselves without dealers involved in the neighbourhood, and without needing to leave your home WHILE EXPERIENCING MOBILITY ISSUES LIKE I DO... Because that's UNSAFE for me as a disabled female to be hiding behind my building smoking a bowl just to deal with the intense Pain. But yeah... Let's totally let people tell us that's a better idea.9 hours ago
Vaping is less evasive to your environment. Maybe they could allow Vaping on property ( apt & Balcony)
If you have kids, you want to be outside or you will need to have a designated room in your home to contain the smoke to one area, away from them.9 hours ago
It makes perfect sense. Your neighbours didn’t want to smell your cigarette smoke; they don’t want to smell your marijuana smoke either. This is especially the case for those of us with children. Go outside or onto your balcony. It’s common courtesy in a shared community.9 hours ago
Thats ridiculous. Your paying thousands of dollars every.month for housing you dont get to tell.me what i can and cant do im my.own home!

1 day ago by NOW MagazineWe might as well just call the election now that all the major news outlets are reporting that newly minted PC leader Doug Ford is almost certainly headed for a “massive” majority and a date with the interior decorator to measure drapes for the Premier’s office.12 hours ago
So I guess I'm going to stay in Cambodia for another four years, because I'm sure as hell not coming back to an Ontario ruled over by Ford Country.
Good luck to my fellow Ontarians. Buckle up, you're in for a bumpy ride.1 day ago
Is Doug Ford going to be our trump? Everyone needs to carefully and closely read, review and see what he and the PC party stand for. This province can not afford an emotional protest vote. Remember what happened when the NDP got in because of a protest vote.1 day ago
After barely getting through the Harris (Fascist- lite) years I don;t think I have it in me to weather Ford. Will be looking for somewhere else to move.1 day ago
...and he will likely win. Many political leaders don't seem to recognize basic campaigning in the manner that Ford and Trump have. You visit lots of oft-ignored, small towns and make them feel special by listening to their problems and not telling them much about your plan except that things will "be better".1 day ago

Bizarre considering ONtario's economy is doing quite well. Unemployment at multi year lows. Some decent social programs brought in that have wide support. And more proposed. A recognition of the importance of the environment. And we are going to throw all that away because you are pissed off at the Premier? And believe me you will be throwing it all away. Odds highly favour a recession in the next few years. And Mr tax cut and cut spending will hit things that matter to people. He's already on record with $25 billion in unexplained efficiencies and others as to where he is going to find the money. Hint he can't unless he cuts services. And he was backed by social conservatives whose agenda is to send us back to the 1950's. Ought to be an interesting four years of protests, law suits and more. In other words 4 years of chaos under his brother in Toronto enabled by Doug and coming 4 years of chaos in the province. Mark my words.1 day ago
"By giving high office to buffoons, by choosing thugs as their representatives and by reveling in nastiness for its own sake, the Conservative brand now is principally a marker of contempt for political order itself." NYT writing about Canada1 day ago
Actually, if he is riding a wave--its a wave of disgust with the Left's obsession with identity politics and panic-based social-engineering.
1 day ago by NOW MagazineUnlike the baby boomer generation, with its penchant for poodle mixes and Disney-movie-approved golden retrievers, millennials don’t stigmatize “pound dogs.”7 hours ago
Dear Now Magazine - just a helpful reminder: there are people out there who are neither Boomers nor Millennials. Signed: none of the above.19 hours ago
That’s funny, because I made this case in the 80s & since
But okay... sure... they can have the Victory20 hours ago
Welcome millennials and thank you for carrying the rescue torch. Thank you too to all those who lit it a decade or more ago. There's a wealth of knowledge to draw on: from those operating on their own properties to house, (re)train, vet care, and find suitable homes for their charges – to those fighting for it at all levels of govt, including speaking at hearings and organizing vigorous letter writing campaigns. A niche for every caring soul to get involved, and the more the merrier. 💕🐾💞1 day ago
Although I do commend millenials and anyone dedicated to animal welfare NOW Magazine needs to do more research before publishing their articles. People like Charlene Myers of ANIMAL CRUELTY LEGISLATION ADVOCATES CANADA and MANY other organizations run by BABY BOOMERS have been pushing for animal welfare laws to be updated for what seems like a lifetime. This article is an insult. It's not only about RESCUING. Without changing laws at a FEDERAL LEVEL we have nothing! AND FYI NOW...we Boomers also have a good grasp on how to use social media. Look at that. I'm doing it right now!1 day ago
Well meaning article (and cute dogs!) but you make it sound like rescue dogs are some sort of a new thing .. it isn't, and hasn't been for a long time. Some stereotyping of boomers, who have long advocated and volunteered for animal welfare groups and issues, going on here.1 day ago
Oh please. Myself and many of my friends (tail end boomers) have been taking in rescues, volunteering and working with shelters before these people knew about oversized eyeglasses and ironic facial hair.

2 days ago by NOW MagazineWhen cannabis is legalized across Canada, Toronto condo dwellers eager to light up inside their homes may see that dream go up in smoke.2 days ago
Dealing with stuff like this is why high density living (which is becoming the norm) sucks — too many people who are selfish and not willing to compromise to be a good neighbor. Can’t expect to act like you live in a house when you live in a shared space (with shared ventilation...) with dozens/hundreds/thousands of others...2 days ago
If you do not allow cigarette smoking indoors, by law, then why should smoking cannabis be different? It stinks, and would really stink up an apartment, just like cigarette smoke does.2 days ago
You’re also not allowed to smoke in public spaces. LOL a law that’ll be broken a hundred thousand times a day.
