“‘Participating in this business activity means that you must be willing to adhere to a strict set of regulations,’ [Bill Blair, federal point person on the legalization of marijuana] told a conference of investors, Bay Street lawyers and several executives from the licensed firms. ‘The current licensed producers are competing with people who don’t care about the law, who don’t care about regulations, don’t care about kids, they don’t care about communities, don’t care about health of Canadians. They’re pretty reckless about it. And so they’re selling anything to make a fast buck before we get the regulations put in place.’” The Globe and Mail, May 24th, 2016.
“Fuck you, Bill Blair.”
That’s the thought that runs through my head every time I hear or read that statement.
