    Dont bother with the hashish. It was never as good as Lebanese.

    Have a good look around the central square and the "Souk". Buy lots of olives. Haggle. Tip the snake charmer well - he will spit on and throw back the really small stuff - this happened to a friend, not me - we others wet ourselves laughing! Eat local food - not the tourist dive crap....

    Go back to the square at night and eat. Don't eat unwrapped ice cream from street vendors.

    It makes you realise why the Atlas cedars (thuja) are on the endangered list of plants.

    I wonder what are the chances of Boris legalizing pot. Can't see any real impact here apart from that the people who smoke in the street are much better dressed. It is a fact that it is trickier to get hold of since the state got involved. All the old pot stores (of which there were many just in the years leading to legalization) have become vape stores in the past eight months. Lots of licensing and supply issues.

    Is it legal to grow your own?

    Yes, you can grow yr own, but it is a mixed picture; with different micro-regulations by town, city and province. Also, and this is quite a big issue - smoking or growing at home can be difficult. Most apartment blocks (which is what most Canadians live in) and most rentals will have their own bans. You can complain to the city about the smell of smoke or just a crop growing from a neighbouring house or garden and that can become a prohibition. There are bans in public parks, which in some towns are extended to all public spaces.

    Mainly, people buy online, I think. Simplest ... although there was, hilariously, a national postal strike right after legalization

    Before legalization there was at least twenty good, well-stocked pot shops in Vancouver city itself that I knew of and that were nearby .. i.e. a walk or short bus ride. Now there's four I think and only one of them is downtown
