Is that a Canadian thing ? I honestly never heard of it. I wish I could make people not smell like B. O.
I’m not sure.
I’ve started seeing it more in BC, but that’s just because I live here.
To clarify, I have no idea of what kind of disciplinary actions they can take, if any at all, should you decide not to adhere.
It’s more of a request that they put upon their employees, most of which are happy to comply.
It doesn’t seem to be that big of a deal to the office or floor staff, I guess we just roll with it.

I'm retired, I hope NY legalizes jazz cabbage so I can get edibles and drinks. Coughing is a major PITA. Pot helps with my sleep disorder and tremors. I never smoke before or during driving. I enjoy a beer or two with the smoke.

IMO, young people should not touch drugs until adulthood. When they tell me "I wish I was..." or "I want to go back to school for..." I tell them to knock off the 'stuff' until you are where you want to be in life.

i just mean...why should i have to smell it...if i don't want to?...that's not fair either.
Try telling that to all the agricultural farmers out there who grow your food that have to spread liquefied SHIT.

Now that is some kind of STINK. On a professional level !!!!

Truthfully - after a short while, you don't even notice the smell. Or if you do, you can almost mentally disregard it. It's like living beside a highway or under an airport landing/takeoff pathway.

Unfortunately, you can still stink like YOURSELF. There's no mandate for people to wash their pits once in a while. But what they can't do in these workplaces is drench themselves in perfumed items.

Yup, it’s actually the second workplace I’ve been at that has done it.
The first place was quite small and the boss’ daughter got intense migraines and nausea from manufactured scents, and when it’s the boss’ daughter, she gets what she wants.
The second place is actually quite large, close to 100 employees in a fairly small space, it’s not unusual to be working pretty much right on top of others during tasks that require more than one person to achieve.
I applaud it, why should I have to smell your stank ass cologne all day, it smells lecherous.
500 + employees at my theatre gig. Scent free workplace. One of the small theatres I did sound in had a control booth that was about 12 feet long by 5 feet deep that held two technicians and a stage manager. OMG there was one particular hippy dippy stage manager that thought bathing and laundering her clothes was bad for the environment with all that detergent and wasted water. The BO and salty reek of the clothes made me long for some kind of cologne in that coffin of a booth.

I just read this article and thought that I should pass it onto my fellow Canadians as a PSA...


With the legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada comes a lot of excitement. For many, it also means they will be able to legally grow their own cannabis in their home.

However, mortgage specialist Chris Heidt of Tekamar Mortgages is urging homeowners to hold off on growing any cannabis for now.

"In the eyes of a mortgage lender (bank or credit union), one pot plant can constitute a "grow-op," and can make your home impossible to finance," Heidt said.

In British Columbia, adults are legally allowed to grow up to four cannabis plants in their home, but the mortgage rules have not yet caught up to the cannabis laws, which creates huge problems for owners.

"None of the major banks will finance anything that says grow-op. Even a fully remediated house, they will not finance."

Heidt says he knows of a few smaller lenders in B.C. that will consider financing but at much higher rates and with additional fees.

"Until financing rules change, do not grow even one pot plant on your property," urges Heidt. "If you are a landlord, prohibit the growing of pot plants anywhere on the property."

Heidt expects mortgage rules to eventually catch up, but there is no indication as to when that could be.

"Right now the value and sale/resale of your home are seriously impaired by the growing of even one pot plant, regardless of the legalization of cannabis."

You damn Canucks need to start smoking more weed! I bought a bunch of Aurora stock a while back and it's been tanking since it went legal.
fear not, being retired with too much spare time I read most Canadian business reports daily .. orders and expected growth are off the charts ... in a good way ... there is however one fly in the ointment at the moment .. it's called gov't red tape ... the application process to get a new facility up and running can take up to 361 days ... ouch ... that's Canada for ya'

yep, fear and hysteria aka. ignorance still surround this marijuana business, contrary to common perception, the idea humidity levels for optimum marijuana growth are not 99.999% .... people hear cultivation and they automatically envision out of control mold growth and rotted timbers ... the kind of scenario akin to having your entire house submerged during a flood or hurricane aftermath .. one plant in a pot does not quite bring the same results ...

Yeah, it’s pretty ignorant of them to think the house is going to be trashed due to a plant or two.
Actual grow ops do wreak havoc on a house though, I’ve seen it, and it ain’t pretty.

Pot orders in Ontario have now exceeded the rest of the entire country combined, like it or not this pot thing is here to stay ... I'm not sure about the rest of Canada but in Ontario it seems the majority are in favor of this new legislation, it seems the lenders will have to re-vamp their business practices in order to stay in business ... their needs do not over rule the will of the people .. someone needs to tell the lenders that the Reefer Madness movie was not a true story ..
