In all my years of living and puffing in Canada I have never had a problem smoking pot. Many police officers think its a pain to arrest somebody for possession and the three times I have been confronted by the police they have either said "don't do this in public" or outright left me alone. I have had a few friends that have actually been arrested and they had to write essays and one of them donated some money to charity to show he was a decent person. In all the cases in which people I know were arrested it was because the car stank of pot when the police pulled them over or because they were smoking in a public place right out in the open (which is kinda rude anyway if you think about kids and stuff) I hope they make pot legal but it doesn't really matter either way, it's basically legal right now.
