Jeez, if they feel that strongly about it why don't they bust the humps of the American citizens who bought the stuff. Trying to impose American laws
on Canadian citizens doesn't fly here; This is a SOVEREIGN nation. If selling the seeds of a plant is a criminal offence in America then inflict that
ridiculousness upon Americans. Spend YOUR billions imprisoning your own citizens for useless trivialities and let us go to the doctor for our free
This rant is in no way meant to insult or degrade the noble people of America. Merely their government.
Seriously though, what has twenty years of the War on Drugs accomplished? where are the returns from the billions spent? Is the heroin, coke and crack
off the streets? How many good people are behind bars soaking up tax dollars cause they had a joint in their pocket? Pharmaceuticals can be far more
deadly, yet they are on advertised every day on TV. Can a green leafy PLANT with so many redeeming qualities really be more of a threat than the DRUGS
doctors prescribe every day?
Face it, the War on Drugs is a front, their is more drugs on the street than ever, the tax dollars of hard working Americans goes to waste and the big
wigs in the pharma industry make billions. Sorry, I've gone off on a tangent.
I believe the Canadian legislation on marijuana to be far more reasonable than their draconian American counterparts. It's a cultural thing, the
average Canadian does not see the reef as a hard drug or even as a drug at all. It's simply a plant that gets you high among other things. That is
the Canadian perspective and it should be respected as such. Have Canadian laws regarding this plant really turned Canada into a cesspool of
corruption? Would stiffer penalties transform Canada into the utopia that is the U.S. of A?
Extraditing Emory simply says that we as Canadians are incapable of governing ourselves and making our own decisions. Emery is a Canadian and he
broke Canadian laws while in Canada. He should be subject to Canadian penalties. End of story.
I again would like to emphasize I mean no disrespect to my American brothers and sisters, I have no beef with you. Obviously, I do have problems with
your government as I do with the government of my own nation. I simply wish to see citizens treated as free human beings and not as chattel. Emery
