If the wind is howling gusty, temp is down and things look crazy, a spliff puts me on edge as far as organizing my lines and and not fucking up my drift launch. For me, the ganja is best after the session.

Legalization is fine with me. But I prefer not have stoned kiters on the water when I'm kiting, or stoned drivers on the road when I'm driving. :o

I live in Canada it’s going to be legal October 17 for sure says on government website lol

Thats what they keep saying in Massachusetts also. One of the problems is Banks and lenders do not want to be associated with the business.. I have mixed feelings, i think they should legalize but I don't like all the edible stuff they sell..Looks like candy to the kids and easy to hide and trick parents and schools.

In theory you'll only be allow the smoke at home, not in public places. Still won't stop people from smoking right before hitting the road (and anything not fast enough to get out of the way).

Bei sure the ones that want to be stoned during a session are already stoned.
And driving rules apply as always...like drinking.

Well said! :claps: (even though there is a plethora of smilies available I find a simple thumbs up is missing)

Good move for SAF dont smoke either but archaic to have it illegal.my general rule of thumb is I just deal with the same way dealing with a noob kiter never when ever possible ride directly downwind of them always upwind no worries,although there are some exceptions for example some people ride very well when loaded and can deal with it normally some not so.One of the better kiters I know indulges regularly and rips it up, but generally the exception, congrats to SAF👍

I once heard about a study using airplane flight simulators. Trained pilots were tested on the simulators to determine if alcohol impaired their performance. The results showed that pilots performed best after 1-2 drinks. No drinks or more than 2 drinks resulted in lower scores. The explanation was that 1-2 drinks relaxed the pilots, but was not enough to impair reaction times. Not sure if this is true, but the kiter who told me about the study relied on it to justify a couple of beers before every session. :naughty:
