The union representing Canada Post workers announced last night that they are in a position to begin rotating strikes this upcoming Monday if they can't settle their contract negotiations. 

Now, Canadians are realizing that if Canada Post is on strike this will have a major effect on their weed deliveries. This is especially a problem in Ontario, where the only option for buying weed legally is online, and it's shipped through Canada Post.

Concerned Canadians are taking to Twitter to voice their opinions about the impending strike and lack of weed deliveries that will inevitably follow. 

While some are actually impressed by the seemingly strategic timing of Canada Post's possible strike, others are acknowledging the reality that they possibly won't get their deliveries any time soon.
