Poll conclusion: we should all be put in prison.

I've heard that the average American breaks three laws a day.

You are classified a drug dealer if you pass a doobie to your buddy.

In Canada it is not illegal to smoke weed... It is only illegal to possess and sell the great weed Smiley

So wait... If I find a way to smoke the weed without possessing it (e.g. I 'lend' it from somewhere) - I'm cool?

Well.. Your fine either way, anything 1 ounce or less if you get caught with it.. you wont even do any jail time or even be arrested... Most cops just take it from kids without laying charges...

In my area, you only hear of large marijuana busts... Never small under 1 ounce.. It's a rather low priority..... They seem to be leaving the small time smokers/sellers alone... but are focusing more on harder drugs.... Methamphetamine and Oxycodon are a very big problem in my area........

I'm assuming this means breaking a serious criminal law that could lead to jail time, not just another paperwork technicality to increase costs for small businesses.  If so, probably not.  Even if I had no moral objection to the activity, operating outside of the law is a huge liability.  I would have no legal recourse if they cheated me, and they would be experienced at concealing their activities.  Criminal businesses also seem to attract violence occasionally, and I wouldn't want that spreading to me or mine.

I would definitely invest in a company that operates by jaywalking.
