Before '97, a few of Hong Kong's top judges had pro-legalisation standpoints, but there was little interest from the local community. Some felt that this was because cannabis is considered a 'foreign' drug.
Last year, two Hong Kong judges again expressed support for cannabis legalisation here in HK.
At present, arrests for and seizures of cannabis are skyrocketing in the territory. Demand is soaring and there is no shortage of supply, and most of the consumers are now locals. While penalties for simple possession are fairly light (many get cautions or fines for their first offense), how does the Geoexpat community feel about defacto legalisation here?
I'm with the judges considering that cannabis are less harmful than alcohol. Can't wait to see "coffee shops" popping up all over HK. Maybe will help some of the locals loosen up a little
One of the funniest things I have seen in Hong Kong, was when I was getting some custom metal fabrication done in Tai Kok Tsui. While I was in the office discussing pricing and lead times over a detailed engineering drawing with the eldest son, ( in his 50's ) the 80 plus year old father was on the other side of the office taking a toke of his 3 foot long, bamboo bong... Quite a happy old guy I must say lol
It really was a pisser, and to be honest, the best metal fabrication workshop I've dealt with in HK, that actually delivered on time and produced precise, quality workmanship.
sorry offtopic, very interested in ths shop you were at, was this a full machine shop?
or the typical iron gate/steel door shops?
I'd be interested in a percision machine shop, especially one that can do CNC.
