Let Aphria grow as much weed as it can

Windsor Star - - OPINION -

Re: Pot pro­duc­tion tally doubted, by let­ter writer Stephen Kurtz, Dec. 22.

It’s def­i­nitely true that not ev­ery man, woman or child in Canada smokes weed — as Stephen Kurtz said in a let­ter to the Wind­sor Star (ques­tion­ing Aphria’s plan to pro­duce 20,000 kilo­grams of mar­i­juana monthly). But I smoke four to five joints a day and I’m one per­son. Even as­sum­ing I only smoke four joints per day at a third of a gram each, that’s 1,460 joints per year I am smok­ing ... if you are say­ing that’s 20 joints a year for ev­ery in­di­vid­ual in Canada, I ac­tu­ally smoke the amount 73 in­di­vid­u­als would have, by that math.

Of course, there are a lot of peo­ple who smoke more joints than me and peo­ple who smoke joints larger than a third of a gram, as well as peo­ple who smoke less, and many not at all ... but there is no way to de­ter­mine how many peo­ple smoke mar­i­juana or how much. There­fore there is no way to prop­erly de­ter­mine the math on this. I say just let Aphria grow as much as it can.
