    We set the stage for weed legalization in Canada, zooming in on the sleepy, seaside town of St. John’s, Newfoundland, the first Canadian city to celebrate legal cannabis with late-night lineups and midnight grand openings of the nation’s first recreational cannabis retail outlets.

    One of the government’s big promises was that legalizing weed would stamp out the black market. So…why did we see the illicit market explode after legalization was announced?

HIGHLY LEGAL gets it right!

This podcast covered it all. Excellent content! Entertaining AND informative.
Bottom line:
I can't wait for the Craft Cannabis shops to start popping up!
Closer to how it worked before 'they' mucked it up.
Toking since 1959.
As an example of ineptitude: In order to purchase a small bud I can only receive it packaged IN a wrapper, IN a box, IN a double walled PLASTIC jar(at least 50 times larger capacity than is needed), without even being able to see it, smell it, or see the condition it is in UNTIL I open all that packaging. Makes no sense and makes the regulations look stupid.

So good!

As someone who consults for, is heavily invested in, and earns income from the Canadian cannabis industry I really enjoyed this series. I think some topics and concepts are a little bit oversimplified for the sake of the audience, but generally speaking, it's really well produced, informative, and accurate and even for those like me who have lived in this space there are some new insights and information to be learned. I've only listened to five episodes, so I may come back and revisit this review, but I'm loving it so far.

Very Canadian

I really liked it! Lost of information that I didn't know and I finished with a better understanding of legalization than when I started. Plus it was so wonderfully Canadian.

I learned so much.

I loved this. I learned lots. This is globally relevant. It's also delivered well and fun to listening to...which I usually did a little high. I am late to the game as someone who hadn't tried weed until it was legal. This series had so much great information.

Missing a part of the story!

Great podcast! I'm a fellow cultivator with Anchor Cannabis and listening to this gave me extreme anxiety as I relived the trauma of legalization... Unfortunately the section on corporate sabotage against small business was missed-although it may need it's own podcast! The only thing applying got us was a government record on the grounds of whether it was known or not, we were terrorists. After year's in the legal system it would have been far easier to not follow the rules.
