UPDATED: Pot Grow-Op Stinks Up Neighbourhood...thanks, Justin.

UPDATED:  May 16, 2019 Montreal Hospital sees spike in Cannabis intoxication in children.

UPDATED:  May 15, 2019 Coincidentally, an article appeared this morning on the CTV website linking cannabis with psychosis.  I know this link exists as a fact.  In my work as a social worker I met many young pot addicts with a pre-disposition to psychosis.  It's common.  Hey, Justin's own mother, Margaret Trudeau, suffered from it....but the le dauphin carried on, regardless, with his "dream" to legalize marijuana and sell it on every corner.


I know just how the couple in the story below feels.  We have the same stench in our neighbourhood from a home on the other side of our backyard fence.  It's a strong odour of skunk smell.  Please read the report below and I will have further comments to follow:

From news1130:

'It's really changed our lives': Langley couple says pot greenhouse stinking neighborhood

LANGLEY (NEWS 1130) – A massive pot greenhouse is emitting smells so powerful, a Langley couple says their grandchildren don’t want to come over to play outside.

“Normally they come here and they play outside cause that’s what you do at granny’s house,” May Leeper tells NEWS 1130. “But if they don’t want to come here, then we have to go there, yea, just very frustrating.”

May and her husband, Ron, have never had problems with the farms near their Aldergrove home in the over 40 years they’ve lived in the neighborhood but that changed when Canopy Growth opened its greenhouse down the street, on 0 Avenue near 264th Street.

“One word: skunk. If you’ve ever smelled skunk, you’ve smelled these plants from their harvesting,” says Ron.

The couple has to keep their windows closed at night because of a humming noise and say the company’s efforts to reduce the smell have been ineffective.

“The noise goes on every night. The odour is periodical and it depends on the wind and it depends on when they’re harvesting and also depends on how much they’re harvesting. For the last month or so, we’ve been getting quite a bit of odour,” says May.

“It smells like a heavy, skunky, pot odour that can just drift in without any warning. You could be just out in your garden or maybe sitting outside, having your coffee and all of a sudden you have to come inside because it’s just overwhelming. Often will create a headache for me and I know that it has triggered asthma attacks for our friends who have been here.”

The couple says they’re not the only one, pointing to more than two dozen other families who have raised concerns with the greenhouse and are now trying to get the federal government to step in.
They have the support of BC Liberal MLA’s Rich Coleman and Ian Paton, who have written to the federal government, asking them to enforce greenhouse odour laws or shut the facility down.

We have reached out to Canopy Growth for comment."


Greencrow says:  Canadians are slowly but surely finding out WHY our ancestors decided to ban pot and hash.  Quite literally, it stinks!  Not only that, but recent reports indicate that many pregnant women STILL believe that smoking pot/marijuana/hash does NOT harm their fetuses.  Just what society needs....more damaged "autistic" children.

This smelly nuisance was introduced as another taxable cash cow for the feds.  Interestingly, it hasn't "caught on" as well as they thought it might. Line-ups at the pot stores haven't materialized.  Consequently, there have been more and more media "product placement" and advertising--in an effort to hype pot and drive the market upward.

As I've said in previous RANTS about pot, my own adult children say that they wish it hadn't been legalized.  They do smoke pot from time to time but they say they just believe it should have been decriminalized...but NOT legalized.  But no.  Justin had to "fix" the problem of marijuana not being taxable and controlled by the government.  With his "reverse Midas" touch...le Dauphin did just that.

Big Pharma thanks you for your continued service on this issue. So out of touch on this one, so misinformed.

LOL. Don't worry...Big Pharma is going to get a piece of the more than ever. The Pot lobby is alive and well.

Readers, note that anonymous never commented on the stench associated with the "product".

Your anti-miracle medicine stance as idiotic as was your Trump worship.

Time to unsub due to idiocy.

Hi BuelahMan:

Both of your contentions "anti-miracle medicine stance" and "Trump worship" are falsehoods and you know it. Do you have ANYTHING to say about the subject of my post...the stench of the product?
