CANNABIS CULTURE – One year into “legalization” and the tragic gaps in the Liberal plan become more evident everyday. As the Patron Saint of Stoners Tommy Chong said on a recent Canadian tour, “Sure it’s legal, but you can’t smoke it anywhere.” And of course, if you want to buy “legal” cannabis you have to submit yourself to purchasing from government sources, at high prices, limited availability and often low quality.
What we must remember, legal cannabis was not a gift from government. Legal cannabis was earned and the list of martyrs to our cause grows with every raid, arrest and civil forfeiture. For most, the promise of amnesty remains beyond reach. Peaceful and ethical cannabis providers as well as their patients continue to be vilified in this all-for-profit shareholder controlled government cash grab.
BUT there is hope, we’ve successfully demanded change before and we must continue. Our lawyers have a major medical cannabis legal case underway and they desperately need information from medical patients who need access to cannabis.
