In answer to a challenge of the PC Governments failed Medical MJ law....the appeals court has struck down a ban on patients growing their own.....
This means that those who suffer can now alleviate their pain for six months (time for two crops) before the government (now Liberals ) can come up with better rules....

It seemeth to me that the government is simply making an ass out of itself by trying to put the profits of a simple home grown cure into the hands of profiteers (both the government with taxes and the grow corporations...)
The idea that the government can ban and regulate dandilions , or sassifrass, or MJ is ludicrous at best....
The gifts of nature belong to those who wish to avail themselves of them......
write that in the constitution why don't they?

The people will simply continue to ignore any and all laws regulating or taxing such naturally occurring , and available medicines...
The more they try to regulate such things ther sillier and more redundant the government makes itself become.....

It sounds like Canada actually has a functional government. It would be great if some of that functionality could make its way South into the US.

Do the Canadian provinces also have laws restricting growing and consuming Cannabis? That's one of the problems in the US. Even once the Federal Government ends its war on Cannabis, the states then have to alter the draconian laws on their books.

If and when the new laws to legalize it all together take effect, it will be done nationwide...

Yes most criminal law in Canada is |federal......pretty much....
Very little of that nature is perview of the provinces.....
This judgement extends another one last year to the same effect....
It seems the Conservatives couldn't imagine how to deal with this properly....thanks for the courts....
