Cannabis Madness

Twenty eight current and former American law enforcement officials  already told our federal government that it’s making a huge mistake with mandatory minimum sentences in Bill C-10 for minor drug offences. Now,  the Harper government has received another rebuke in a paper by the chief medical officers of B.C., Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan that calls for cannabis to be decriminalized and taxed, and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

Saskatchewan Justice Minister Don Morgan — who also recently admitted he didn’t have a clue how much the federal government’s “tough on crime” agenda will cost Saskatchewan through increased expenses for police, courts, prisons and parole services — responded by saying he respects the health officials’ view, but  “addicts” — which I guess includes anybody who indulges in the recreational use of this substance that’s legal in a growing number of states south of the border and countries around the world — belong in jail.

  1. “Apples” are outlawed in the Bible; why does this government continue to ignore the consumption and distribution of fruit?

    How much fun are you expecting to have with this article, “Cannabis Madness”, Greg?

  2. Gov’t grown Cannabis?( for the love of whoever ) Not the Manitoba mine hole shit again!!

    Let people grown their own,& the growers know how much bug spray & other additives are in their smoke.

    If it gets to be “taxed and controlled”, fine.( some people aren’t “greenthumbs” or just don’t have the time or property space to become gardeners).

    People invented guns & money, plants didn’t.
    I’ve never heard in the media 1nce were a marijuana plant had a gun and shot a human.
