Canada Looking For Marijuana Suppliers

I had always heard that Canada was a pot­head coun­try, but frankly, I had always thought it was a stoner myth.

Note that it doesn’t mean any­thing: I can be extremely — and sur­pris­ingly — naïve at times.

Like when we were trav­el­ing in Latin Amer­ica. Once I went back home, every­body asked me about the drugs over there: “come on, didn’t you see poppy fields in Bolivia? Cocaine in Peru? “. Nope. Didn’t see any drugs. The odd join smoked at the hos­tel, maybe. But cer­tainly much less drugs than I had seen when I was in high school.

Or the time we were back­pack­ing from Bolivia to Chile. We had taken a local bus and had drove up all the way to the top of the Andes. The view was beau­ti­ful. It was a good thing because we spent the next six hours admir­ing it: our bus had been stopped there at the bor­der between the two coun­try and was lit­er­ally being dis­man­tled in front of our eyes by the bor­der patrol. I had though they were look­ing for food­stuffs (it’s some­times ille­gal because they can carry ani­mal and plant pests and dis­eases… some coun­tries are picky about that). Turned out that in fact, we were being searched for drugs, and yes, that had included slash­ing all of the bus tires (we had spares ones — appar­ently, the slash­ing thing was a com­mon pro­ce­dure because the bus dri­ver didn’t bat an eye).

Any­way, naïve I said.

But when I saw this news last week I started to under­stand the whole pot­head thing.


Granted, we are talk­ing about med­ical mar­i­juana here, but still… I just found it funny.

First of all, explain me about grow­ing mar­i­juana in Canada. Doesn’t mar­i­juana needs warm and humid weather? Because let me tell you, Flin Flon is just about the oppo­site, and by the way, Man­i­toba is one of the cold­est province. Alright, I guess they grow it indoors. Must be why the police busts so many grow-ups here. But deep down, I’m con­vinced that Flin Flon was picked because of the funny-sounding name: must be hilar­i­ous when you’re high!

So, back to Flin Flon’s world famous pot (Jamaica is noth­ing com­pared to Flin Flon, man!). Appar­ently, the orig­i­nal stock of mar­i­juana seeds were obtained from Royal Cana­dian Mounted Police drug raids, and there was some lack of con­sis­tency in the early crops. But then, the qual­ity improved greatly, or so I was told.

Nonethe­less, Health Canada is look­ing for a good sup­plier. Know any­one that might be inter­ested and not cur­rently in jail? Send a resume and a cou­ple of joint to the Min­istry (prefer­ably on Wednes­day… I teach there on Wednes­days only).

Off to go see Harold And Kumar Escape From Guan­tanamo Bay… What else?!


  1. Hehehe it does sound strange. But at least they are openly bid­ding on a provider. Legal, and not run by orga­nized crime. I sup­pose thats an improve­ment. Appar­ently pot doesn’t need such a warm envi­ron­ment there have been a string of farms busted here in Nor­way as well…so you never know. They don’t call it ‘weed’ for nothin!

    DianeCAs last blog post..Oslo Opera house is cool as ice

  2. Ha Ha.. Thats funny… Canada needs Mar­i­juna… They can prob­a­bly touch­base with Afghan.….

    Hey BTW,thats a very nice pic of urs :-)

  3. @Mme. Meow — It most def­i­nitely is! :lol:

    @Ghosty — I guess… in China, it does grow every­where, most parc in Bei­jing have tons of mar­i­juana. But Fin Flon???!

    @Colleen — I found it plain odd when I read that!

    @Seraphine — I love poems-comments! Or are they comments-poems? Any­way, what you say it very true.

    @silverneurotic — Nope hey? I had this feel­ing it was one of these “only in Canada” moment!

    @shionge — I guess you’re right!

    @Max Coutinho — See, I’m not sure myself. I think med. mar­i­juana license own­ers can (or used to be allowed to?) grow some for them­selves. But it also seems that the gov’ is sell­ing its own… so I’m con­fused as well!

    @durano lawayan — I would never ever smoke dope abroad or worse, bring some with me. We all saw the Mid­night Express movie… but hey, I saw a lot of mar­i­juana in Asia, that’s true. Good weather!

    This grow-ops are a new thing to me, never heard of them in France. Or maybe I’m just naïve as I said!

    @Theresa — Can you imag­ine work­ing under­ground in Flin Flon in a grow-op? Man, you need a lot of drugs to stand that!

    Gotcha for the tag!

    @DianeCA — Yes, of course. That said, I heard really bad feed­back about Ottawa’s mar­i­juana… appar­ently not that good!

    @CM-Chap — Thanks ;-) Nah, no need to, Canada will be self-sufficient very soon in term of drug growing! :lol:

  4. slash­ing the bus tires would cer­tainly increase the cost of the trip for the bus com­pany.
    i’m sur­prised the bor­der peo­ple didn’t use dogs to search the bus instead.

  5. The ques­tion should be: Why are they grow­ing mar­i­juana in an aban­doned mine shaft that is thou­sands of feet underground?

    The argu­ment that it is for secu­rity rea­sons doesn’t fly right with me because: Hon­estly you can grow it in a large ware­house that has only one exit staffed by secu­rity staff. That’s it.

    So why are they grow­ing it in an aban­doned mine shaft?

    Research ‘Under­ground bases’ and you will get your answer.
