    Hi Bill.

    Actually there is a difference. Go to the USA border and tell the customs officer there that you drink liquor and beer, he will smile and say welcome to the USA. On the other hand if you tell him you are a proud Cannabis user (pot smoker). You will be turned around and probably denied a re-entry in the future.

    I think the purpose of the article was to show the alarming number of people that smoke pot in Burlington. Based on the number of Cannabis stores opening up. As you pointed out it is legal, I think some of us are surprised at the actual number of people that use it. Still to each their own.

    Alfred, I’m not condoning or condemning the use of cannabis. The fact is, it’s legal. We have multiple beer and liquor outlets as well as bars in Burlington. Is this really any different?

  • Alfred


    I think that what we can draw from this is that Burlington has a large number of legal stoners. I don’t think I would encourage my children to use mind altering drugs. Knock yourself out.

    Not sure what the point of this article is? Cannabis is legal, what’s your point?
