As Oct. 17, when recreational cannabis becomes legal in Canada, approaches, the Times Colonist is asking readers to share their stories about when it wasn't.
How has your life been affected by Canada's laws on marijuana? Were you forced to hide that you used cannabis? Did you receive a criminal record? What are you feeling now, as legalization approaches? We’d love to hear from you.
Fill out the form below. Stories will be considered for publication in the Times Colonist and timescolonist.com. Submissions can also be made by email to email@example.com. Please put "cannabis" in the subject line.
