Because marijuana is one of those drugs that can both be good as a medicine and bad when misused, I think their government are so critical and careful about how the users would be using it for good and not just a drug to be abused. I just think that it could be because it is a great tasked to be done if buying would have to go undetected via anonymous methods like cryptocurrency or any other means. But honestly other than what I think I was really confused as to why they do it that way. Maybe to avoid getting discriminated as users because other nations do not support it? The article didn't suggest as much though.

Seems strangely over the top for what is a normally occurring plant all over North america, especially when its legally available in some parts of the USA anyway so why would it really be such a big border issue for them.

Canada wants to levy sufficient marijuana tax and prohibits the use of encryption because buyers buy marijuana from formal businesses. But I don't think this will affect the marijuana cryptocurrency market. Cannabis is a very easy to grow plant that does not prevent private planting.

What is the connection of your title and its content. there is a huge difference and the content does not talk about marijuana. Anyway, i will going to comment on the crypto that you wishes to.convey on how it could be use in a god way or abusively because of its privacy feature. The system could be regulated and this is the to prevent or minimize absuvive use of cryptocurrency.

Does marijuana already legal on canada ? by the way on our country marijuana is considered here as illegal drugs , thats why much better if you can buy it using a crypto with a strong privacy or anonimity like monero or deep onion so that you cant be traced by police and nbi's  .

Using a cash to buy marijuana is dangerous because you will not know if some one buy bust you   .

In terms of legality , i heard the press is already  planning it but i dont agree with thier idea because this plant can only cause addiction which can lead to crimes .

I really cannot relate this decision of the Canadian government. As long as marijuana is legal what would be the reason of warning citizens to pay for it with cash? Cash cannot be traced and transactions can occur in the dark so easily. This decision blows my mind and makes me think what game is been played under the table that we can't see.

I wish I know more reason for the control asides taking data. The anonymous coin exchange is still mostly use for drug, arms and other illegal goods, which are consumed by people with higher propensity for crime. The control is a good profess but since they have allowed it initial by such people, it might be a struggle by government to enforce it. Government can also can create coin in that part of exchange and monitor it for those who still prefer buying it with crypto

As many people bitcoin and other cryptocurrency are used for all the transactions made on the deep web markets, which involves buying and selling drugs including marijuana, and because its is legal in Canada i don't see a real reason why people should be using cryptocurrency to buy it on the deep web and support criminal activities, i know that it does provide privacy but if you are not doing something illegal that you should not care if you use cash or crypto.

Source: https://www.mtlblog.com/news/canada/the-government-of-canada-is-now-officially-warning-canadians-to-buy-legal-marijuana-with-cash-to-protect-their-personal-information

In my opinion these are quite interesting news, as we often talk here how all the governments only want to replace cash, because they want to monitor all transactions, but it seems to be more complex than that. Privacy can protect people from criminals and malicious outside actors, and I think the benefits are far more important than some small number of criminals getting away with crimes.

In this light, crypto can find its place in economy as "digital cash", and some governments might officially recognize it.

That's true, although Bitcoin possesses different and widely influencing advantages, I think this community has still a limitation which needs to be monitored like when it comes to marijuana, since here it doesnt required processes from the government which may be a reason for the drug syndicates to abused the power of Bitcoin which we dont want to happen.

If you actually read the article you will find out that you are the one not making sense here in this thread. OP is just merely expressing his opinion on the matter how he thought the government always wants to track us down even in our personal information. It is actually mind blowing what the Government of Canada did particularly its Privacy Commissioner they actually want to helped them to remain as much anonymity as they can when purchasing marijuana as they know it can be used against them. If only members like you are taking some time to read this forum will actually be a better place.

In terms of legality , i heard the press is already  planning it but i dont agree with thier idea because this plant can only cause addiction which can lead to crimes .

It's a plant that makes people feel happy, and a plant that makes people get rid of (physical or mental) pain in a very non stressing manner. It's much better than any other chemically manipulated drug people pump into their body that slowly but surely destroys them from within.

Criminality in whatever form is just a non argument. Whether you legalize it or not, it's always there.

People are indoctrinated to think that certain things in life aren't legal or shouldn't be allowed. Think for yourself instead of following a government that wants to keep you in check in every possible way.

Is this something new to them? Aren't they aware of the silk road before? They should probably have any laws already for acquiring weeds instead of using cryptocurrency as payment. They have all been there before i don't understand why they are making it an issue. Maybe the legalities of cryptocurrency and weeds depend on each border of their country.

Weed legality is still on a big debate, so does cryptocurrencies too.

If they already legalize the purchase and use of marijuana then why make a huge fuss if people starts using crypto currency for purchasing weed its not like you've committed a crime. I guess it's only normal for a country if  they want to protect the value of their fiat and crypto is currently seen as speculative investment so that's why they protect the fiat users.

But finally marijuana is getting attention ive read some benefits of it, im not a smoker of it but i hope more countries starts seeing its benefits in medical use.

I believe that the Canadian government is doing the right thing to warn its citizens about it. Not in every country is the government loyal to the people who use cannabis, so their warning makes sense for those citizens who like to travel frequently to other countries. In other countries, things may not be as friendly as ours in Canada.

Who wants to wastes their coins to some weed? They could really buy it with cash only and it has nothing wrong with that.

So they are wasted when used for what they were designed?

This won't still stop the fact that many will still purchase marijuana with cryptocurrency or so and even abuse it . I know that the Canadian government want to monitor the transaction and usage of marijuana through this means but it still won't have much effect.
I hate to say it but still: if you want to monitor the usage of marijuana why then was it legalized? Its really going to be a hard task making some people obey certain regulations.

Others have also replied along those lines, which makes me wonder how many actually bothered reading the article. It doesn't even mention crypto. If anything it would make it harder for them to monitor these purchases.

We respect all the policy of each country because we know already that Marijuana is limited become legal. I agree with the government of Canada to avoid using cash to free way the digital technology I know that United States will approved any kind of digital technology specially in Bitcoin crypto currency.
