    In Canada the government thought they corner the market on Cannabis sales...yet the black market is doing better than ever.  Which is just more than the government could run a hotdog stand.

    i bot my last batch of 18% thc legal medical grade for $3 a gram, last month. beat that price in the black market? i don't think so! in time there will be no need for a black market. so have patience grasshopper...
    i would trust gov't grown way more than some shady backroom grower who doesn't flush his cannabis with water for it's last growth stint to rid the product of any left over chemicals/fertilizers 
    rec/medical gov't cannabis burns unlike any other black market product i have ever tried. i have 40 years experience.

    Price is only a small part of the problem.  I pay 3.99/g through my medicinal supplier...which is why I would never give up my script.

    availability a problem? mine was delivered in 2 days. what else is "the problem" ? there will be many many stores opening soon as well as on line sales. the black market will be shut down as the govt will be offering many amazing strains in many options(oil, gel caps, shatter etc) and the govt will be flushing their cannabis with water in its final stages of growth...ALL unlike the black market who offer higher prices, generally 1 strain only and quality control is non existent in the black market
    in my 40+ years of buying i have never bot quality cannabis for as low $3 a gram.
    but...carry on if u think the black market is "doing better than ever" and will survive this  ;)

    Yeah, I'm really not understanding this so-called supply crisis that anti-legalization people are talking about. I'm having no problem at all getting weed legally. I'm also having no problem getting weed on the grey market.

    have you ordered anything online? if so, how do you pay for it? I want to get some products, but my wife is uber-paranoid that we'll get commandeered at the US border when we go to Florida next christmas. Any truth to immigration checking people's online transaction history?

    Buying cannabis with a credit card? Why you should think about privacy


    https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/buying-cannabis-with-a-credit-card-why-you-should-think-about-privacy-1.4182055

    I would not not worry about crossing into the US.  The Northern Border is under staffed at the present.  I would like to think the US Customs has more important things to worry about...and I doubt they run detail checks on that many people...


  • Meltdown99Meltdown99 None Of Your Business...Posts: 5,846
    I have been using my credit card for over 6 years and have never had problems crossing...

    when the state of NY moves forward on REC, which i am pretty sure will be within 1 year, there will be little worries about using a credit card cause the rest of the states won't be far behind(imo)
    correct me if i'm wrong but u cud buy a prepaid visa credit card for online purchases. those can be set up quite anonymously from what i have heard!

    As long as Cannabis remains illegal federally in the US, then I think they the US Customs through a detailed search may come up with something...and they do not really need anything to ban you...just admitting you use Cannabis could initiate a ban.  I just think it would take a real prick to ban someone over Cannabis in 2019...not saying it's not happening, I just think it would be rare.  But hey, anytime you cross the border is a risk...heck, don't forget the apple and they find it...likely a fine.

    I just use my visa debit card. I have heard about this concern and read up about it a little, but I think the chances of that coming back and biting us at the US border are about a great as us getting hit by lightning TBH. When was the last time you had to reveal all your banking information at the border? They can't just view that when they check their little computers in the booth. The only way that is going to become an issue, I believe, is if you're actually detained for some reason already and they start really digging. And like Meltdown said, despite the fear mongering, they really do have better things to do than check if someone ordered a gram of weed legally.
    But if you're really worried anyhow, you could always just buy one of those preloaded visas at the grocery store and pay with that. :)

    Think the concern people have with CC's is that because Cannabis is still illegal federally that there is some regulation that requires financial institutions involving Cannabis the transactions to the feds, and then it's likely available to the US Customs.  I could be wrong, but I also think Cannabis business's in legal states do not pay the federal tax...because in the eyes of the feds its an illegal business.  Maybe an American can confirm...

    The guys you talk to when crossing the border don't have direct access to all our personal credit card info is what I said. They aren't checking into that just as a matter of course  as you chat with them from your car or whatever. They don't have that kind of immediate access to such info.

    Here, this is perhaps helpful info:

    What the Border Protection Officer Sees on their Screen

    At many border crossings, the process starts with license plate readers that can automatically flag persons for additional inspection.   The license plate readers, along with radio frequency identification technology, scan vehicles passing through border checkpoints.  The readers check that information against law enforcement data on cars being sought by police agencies.

    Every time you cross a border your name, date of birth, citizenship, address, mode of travel, purpose of travel and value of goods purchased abroad, is collected to form a passage history.  Computers analyze passage histories to pinpoint people who have suspicious travel patterns. These individuals may be earmarked for closer scrutiny by customs officials and law enforcement agents on subsequent trips.

    If you are pulled over for a secondary inspection or search even more information is collected and put into the database.  This includes the reason for the additional screening, the results of the search, interview notes, details of any action taken, and the names of your travel companions.

    To help evaluate whether to allow you to enter their country, border agents have access to a wide variety of databases including the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) database, and the FBI’s electronic clearinghouse of crime data called the  National Crime Information Center (NCIC).  Below are some of the things the U.S. and Canadian Border inspection may be able to see if you are pulled in for a secondary inspection:

    • Criminal history.  This may also include health records that involve contact with with the police – such as suicide attempts
    • Family members and relatives
    • Delinquent Tax status
    • Current Job
    • History of when/where/what times you have crossed borders – including state ports where there are border checks

    It's a LOT different if you happen to get busted by Canadian authorities for buying said gummy bear. I know that is also unlikely, but it's not a risk I ever took. Before legalization, there were all kinds of ways to get weed online and mailed... but I was legit concerned about being busted via Canada Post.

    Will your cannabis credit card purchases be visible to U.S. border officials? (Some might, some won’t.)

    https://globalnews.ca/news/4461315/will-your-cannabis-credit-card-purchases-be-visible-to-u-s-border-officials-some-might-some-wont/

    And credit card data can be stored in the United States, where it’s an open book to U.S. authorities, who don’t need a warrant to access it if it belongs to non-Americans. (The privacy agreements of all five of the big banks warn that customers’ financial data can be stored outside Canada, and be subject to the laws of the country it’s stored in.)
