The 7 Deadly "Signs Of Intoxication" Ontario Budtenders Are Checking For Before They'll Sell You Weed

BY Puff Staff

Unlike the blackmarket, the legal industry has rules. Some good. Some bad.

Having to leave the comfort of your home to buy cannabis (or anything in 2019) is already a pain, but knowing that when you try to pick up pot you are being silently scrutinized is enough to make anyone sweat.

Sweat too much though and well – you’ve just hit one of the checkmarks for intoxication.

To work in an Ontario cannabis store, all employees must first pass Lift & Co.’s Cannabis Retail Training Certification program called CannSell. While training and regulations in the emerging legal market are important, the current course is far from perfect. The listed signs of intoxication have been controversial as many can be caused by physical disabilities or a variety of other factors.

A higher level debate can be had for whether you should or should not be able to buy more pot whilst already stoned (obviously assuming you are not operating a motor vehicle). The jury’s still out on whether you can really ‘overdose’ on bud alone but it’s clear that the effects of cannabis consumption do not parallel those of alcohol when it comes to emotions and impulse behaviours.

With that said, rules are rules and Ontario store employees still have a job to do and protocols to follow (no matter how subjective and vague they may seem).

These are the 7 signs Ontario budtenders have been trained to check for before they can sell to you.


Inappropriate Speech Volume

Soo.. no screaming or no mumbling?


Inappropriate Sweating

What about a dewy glow? It’s 25 degrees and we just took a non-air conditioned streetcar on a Saturday. How many forehead droplets are appropriate?!


Red Eye

Apologies, just finished watching ‘A Dog’s Journey’ and needed a pick me up. Who’s cutting onions?


Tiredness

Post Malone eloquently sums it up for most of us.


Dishevelled Clothing

Difficulty With Fine Motor Skills

For today’s field sobriety please colour Sandy the Squirrel within the lines.


Shallow Breathing

Too stoned? Nope just out of shape, thanks for asking.
