Where I live we are shutting down ALL businesses and services unless they are deemed essential by our government. Grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations and construction/maintenance and public transit will continue to operate which is great and important as a lot of people would not survive without food, medicine and heat. However, they are keeping open the LCBO and Beer store, and the cannabis dispensaries, their argument being they need them open for the addicts and alcoholics. Give me a break, everyone has had 2 weeks to stock up on food (and booze/recreational drugs if you 'need' them), if you don't have what you need by now thats too bad for your own ignorance.
The hypocrisy of government is incredible, 2 years ago you could go to jail for posession of weed and now they are deeming it an ESSENTIAL service that we NEED weed. I don't believe we should be catering to alcoholics and drug users at a time like this, if they go through withdrawals because they were too ignorant to stock up when they could have well hopefully at the end of it they find a way to beat their addiction.
