Don't hold your breath, I've seen them promise to reform those laws several times in my short stay here on earth. Including the now famous Jean
Cretien declaring his desire to enjoy retirement with a beer in one hand and a joint in the other.
It simply won't happen, they won't reform the laws at all. This law will be repackaged, reintroduced, and will die on the floor like the rest.
Actually, I'm fully expecting Harper to use this as a ploy to get the stoner vote. We are about to have a federal election and all.
they will never legalize recreational pot until they can enact a strict strangle hold on sale and production, which is impossible.
They might, and should, make it easier for medical patients to access it. The government has been growing it for years for this purpose, they just
make you jump through hoops to get access to it.
AND even with your card, you can still get busted. This is why the laws must be reformed. This is a valid treatment option that is both safe and
cheap. Which is the problem, big pharma doesn't want you medicating with herbs and supplements, they want you buying chemical cocktails from them.
And their donation funds are considerably larger than ours when it comes to political contributions.
