    Ceramic Blue on 2-tone grey interior. Canada has legalized pot. This place is a 1/2 hour crawl from my house.

    A Kona EV and legal weed. Best of both worlds, or something like that.

    I think that the US will be there in a few years.. Other states are seeing how much tax revenue legal weed sales create in states where it is already legal. Public opinion has turned on that topic too.. Most people now favor full legalization. I personally favor legalization of all drugs as it should not be governments business to determine what an adult puts into their own body. Of course, DWI/DUI laws should still apply but what somebody does with their body or puts into their body should not be governments business, period! The only "drug laws" I favor are those involving minors as they don't have the judgement of an adult.

    One learns from history but the US forgot about their alcohol prohibition days and how the mob, got rich over it.
    Of course in Canada, ex politicians and ex lawmakers are heavily invested in Licensed Producers. Hehehehe

    Ideally, people should be able to grow their own.. but government wants the tax revenue..

  7. Not true, they only get the revenue from the seeds, max 4 plants per residence:

    I see.. I'm not sure if it is legal, even in small amounts, to grow it yourself in the US States who have legalized it.. My state only has medical marijuana legalized but recreational is not even though they recently stopped enforcing prosecution of possession of small amounts due to new Hemp laws. As their tests can't tell apart Hemp from Marijuana, they can't enforce any laws prohibiting marijuana possession.. They should just legalize it completely..

    I had the front silver trim wrapped in carbon vinyl, dipped the logo; full front has ppf, dimpled ,and grey skirt areas have ceramic coating;chrome deleted the side skirts; rear cargo logos were painted versus dipped,except "electric."The wheels are about 4-5lbs/1.8 - 2.2kg lighter than OEM.

    looks very sharp!
    I wonder if your car's efficiency got better with the lighter wheels? Rotating mass is worth multiple times any other weight reduction. I have seen it when I was drag racing. I took .20 off my 1/4 mile time just by changing to the lightest available wheels.

    2019 Ultimate Ceramic Blue. Picked it up yesterday, then drove 50 kms to a hobby shop to get parts for my 1:10 Lipo powered cars.

    I haven't lost efficiency that's for sure,even with the more open wheel design.I do think I am getting more efficient range than EPA tested,and I drive spirited when the traffic permits.Use the AC,open the moonroof, windows slightly, XM always on. Without actually timing my acceleration, I think it has improved when I can control the torque steer,with the squealing Nexens. It will be interesting when I do the reverse, H rated Pirelli Ice Zero FR winter tires [225/45/17] on the OEM wheels.I look forward to less to no tire squeal.

    I am curious to see what after market all seasons Kona ev owners replace the stock tires with. Michelin Cross Climate aren't aggressive enough for me.

    Model 3 owner passed by my Kona EV the other day while charging,and said it's like the bat mobile :p

    That blue is really nice,with the contrasting white roof;why they don't offer it for all models bewilders when these are shipped from the factory.Consider getting ppf on the front to protect the paint.Dimples,they may not do due to the detail needed [DIY ceramic coat it],but ask for the charge door at least. Just saw a Model 3 video where the guy regrets not having done so. We kind of share that flat front surface. Showing the pits from [highway] driving.

    The two-tones are only available on models without a sun roof. This may be a matter of production efficiency or simply that there would be less surface to show off in the second colour.
  18. It does look sharp with the pillars and the mirrors

    Well my lady finally got her preferred Kona EV. Now Scarlett is sitting beside Electra. She waited only 4.5 months.
