    Senate call for legalized pot draws RCMP fire



    Vancouver - B.C. Mounties aren't buying a Senate committee's recommendation that marijuana use should be legalized for adults across Canada.

    RCMP spokesperson, Sgt. Grant Learned, says there is still plenty of debate about the effects of the drug, and that police believe the sale and distribution of marijuana is used to foster other criminal activities.

    INDEPTH: Canadian marijuana laws

    The final report by the Senate's Special Committee on Illegal Drugs, released in Ottawa on Wednesday, concludes that cannabis is less harmful than alcohol, and rejects the idea that smoking pot leads to harder drugs.

    The committee says marijuana should be controlled and sold in the same way as beer and wine.

    It also says the government should wipe clean the records of anyone convicted of marijuana possession, saying there is no good reason pot smokers should be subject to criminal law.

    Committee chair, Senator Pierre Claude Nolin, says drug policy should focus on harm reduction, prevention and treatment.

    you know that if it wasn't for our conservative neighbours to the south
    (aka the States) marajuana and by-products would already be legal here.
    However... we be lumped in with the opium poppy growers and bathroom chemists.
    and we all know that drug money gors to directly fund terrorism
    :rolleyes:

    check NORML.org to keep yourself updated on all of this. I think Nevada is trying to decriminalize it but i'm not too sure.

    yea pretty much. the unitd states is trying to pressure canada into not decriminalizing, plus they denied canadas request for good seeds to grow medical pot so canada ended up with a less than desireable product from their seeds. I can't believe that th us even stopped buying hemp from canada and made hemp illegal, even in fucking food! the US is trying to stop this in canada and jamaica, which is bullshit. they just want to run other peoples countries.

    i know that the drug money on my street goes to fund neighborhood terrorism, the neighbor behind me was just taken away for muder and there was a stake out on my street because of it. he works at best buy as a cashier but drives a pimped out lex and the other neighbor is always on the sidewalk, never at a real job and drives a benz with tvs in it. i don't walk to the main street at night without my boy. i call that terrorism.

    but whatever, if it went legal these kids would just sell something else(which they already do). getting anything is as easy as walking out the door and asking someone.

    i still say let herb-smokers fund the government.

    besides if the states is worried about people coming to canada to buy pounds of weed and sneaking it across the border, its already happening, b.c. anyone? their biggest industry is marijuana, the government has stated this themselves

    to-adress-some-of-mapo's-points

    - Stern got cancelled because he didn't have the ratings.
    Rock music stations needed to play rock, and talk stations couldn't afford him.

    - The "bible belt" is the home of the "moral majority".
    Canada is so very far away from it that the influence isn't as strong.

    - As per free speech, Canada was allowing hardcore print pornography
    many years before the states. hence the 'unsencored canadian editions'

    - and for gun control, Restrictive doesnt mean conservative. Holland
    has the strictest gun control in the world and they are called progressive.
