Contributed by Jen Tripp. Cannabis, weed, marijuana, hippy lettuce, grass… whatever you call it, it is legally here to stay. I recently attended an interesting seminar on the impact of legal cannabis on real estate.
The main issues revolve around the conflict between the new right to smoke cannabis and the right to enjoy a smoke free environment. The issue is complicated with grandfathered tobacco smoking rights and medical marijuana. Vaping remains a legally unresolved grey area.
It is legal to grow up to 4 plants per household for recreational purposes, but you are required to purchase legal seeds from the government and at present none are available. If the plants are properly there is low impact and it can help humidify your home, but if done improperly it will lead to mould and mildew.
One solution is a LEAF grow fridge, but they are the same price as a Wolf Stove or Sub-Zero Fridge. I wonder if the pot humidor is the new wine fridge, where you proudly display your exquisite taste and selection?
Whether you are in favour of legalization or not, legal recreational cannabis it the new reality.
