  • Provincial Cannabis Survey

    So according to a recent article in the local paper, “the majority of Saskatchewan residents” aren’t interested in trying marijuana once it becomes legal federally on 17 October. According to me, this is precisely how those surveys went: “Hi, we’re conducting a survey about marijuana…” “what’s that?” “When marijuana becomes legal, will you try it?”…

  • October 6, 1999

And that drama club was trying to recruit new members. I went to a high school where there was a pretty clear divide between the band-drama kids and the…
