On the street, a dealer selling pot at $10 per gram better deliver the
goods - high THC content sufficient to get a good buzz - or clientele
will go elsewhere. Word gets around fast. Similarly, if the provincial
government doesn't deliver the goods, plans to reap millions in taxes
from selling pot will go up in smoke.

The government hasn't said a word about the THC content in its pot and 
journalists have been remiss in not asking this, the most important 
question. If the THC content is the same as or close to the content 
found in medical marijuana, there most certainly will not be a buzz. And 
that's the main reason for smoking a joint. Neighbourhood dealers may 
have nothing to fear.

Transportation Minister Brian Mason saying impairment by alcohol or
marijuana is exactly the same is nothing more than a scare tactic and
a lie. He offered no proof by way of studies, academic or otherwise,
to substantiate his claim.
