In The New Yorker, Canadian Stephen Marche complains legalization has made marijuanaweed boring:

You have not understood how banal marijuana can be until you overhear two parents watching their kids at a swimming lesson discuss how I.S.O. 9000 certification affects the marketing efforts for stocks of C.B.D.-extract companies.

He concludes: “Canada is proving, once again, the deep political power of boredom: if you want to suck the power and glamour out of drugs, let the government run them.”
