I'm relieved that the BC government is bringing in legislation that landlords can prohibit tenants from growing marijuana in their suites.
I already have a similar clause in my suites contract and this reinforces it.
HA give me a raspberry pi and old massive server case. And I can build a stealth grow box that looks like and acts like a computer. With ZERO smell, cheap ikea storage cabinets also serve well for stealth grows. An innocent looking two drawer filing cabinet, serves as grow box. Just google 16oz party cup challenge and see what can be done with micro grows.
You say get high, I say hello!

Recreational marijuana legalization delayed in Canada ... a-53128773
Canadians will have to wait until at least early August or later to legally purchase recreational marijuana.

As recently as last week, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government was insisting it was on track for legalization in July.

But given a new Senate timetable to pass the legislation, Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor conceded Thursday it won't be done in July.

Petitpas Taylor reiterated that provincial and territorial governments need eight to 12 weeks following senate passage and royal assent to prepare for retail sales. That puts it in August and possibly not until a month later.

Legalization would make Canada the second country to have nationwide legalization, after Uruguay.

Each province in Canada is coming up with rules for the sale of recreational pot.

Meanwhile: StatsCan is preparing to figure how much of the black market they are capturing through getting down and dirty in the sewers; and users are asked to self-report what kind of prices they are paying for bud across Canada (statsCannabis )

Statistics Canada will spend up to $600,000 a year for a contractor to regularly test waste water from 15 to 20 municipalities across the country for traces of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, and other drugs.

The survey could be the best way to collect precise data on the amount of pot Canadians consume, according to Anthony Peluso, an assistant director at Statistics Canada.

“The date will not be July 1, I can assure you of that,” the prime minister told Quebec’s TVA network. “I don’t know where that date came from.”

It's quite understandable that Prime Minister Fancy Sox doesn't have a clue where that date came from, but even his CBC mouthpiece is aware of it. ... -1.4041902
The Liberal government will announce legislation next month that will legalize marijuana in Canada by July 1, 2018.

And reference to Bill C-45:
The Liberal Party of Canada tabled bill c-45, "An Act respecting cannabis" which was put forward to Parliament on April 13, 2017 with the intent of legalizing recreational use of Cannabis by July 1, 2018.[71] Bill C-45, was in the Parliamentary process in late August 2017.[72] Meetings were to be held September 11–15, 2017 and a report was expected by parliament by the end of September.

Another broken promise by Prime Minister Fancy Sox.
Conservative Senators are holding up the bill. Government agreed to give them an inch (1-2 months) so they don't delay a mile (the 1 year some of them are calling for). Because of that, on-sale date is going to be after July 1.

I don't know how the opposition can both call for delay, succeed in getting a delay, and then call it a broken promise at the same time. They're the ones trying to postpone it.

Second reading this afternoon in the Senate. Some are predicting a close vote but I doubt this runaway train can be derailed.
