What Am I?
I am sick and tired of Health Canada and Steven Harper saying everyone they
provided licenses to are CRIMINALS.
WHY now? After providing thousands with permission to grow for years?
Because they REALIZE that YES indeed Cannabis will become a BILLION dollar industry and they can make $$$. LOT's of MONEY.
Who cares about the Health in Health Canada?
It is ONLY about money... for them.
For US it is about a life saving medicine that has changed our lives for the better!
ONE that WE were prescribed by a Dr. (not paid for) & granted permission from Health Canada to have a Designated Grower and provide Storm with his own medicine.
YES WE have invested MUCH. Blood , sweat & tears and $$$.
You would too if your only son was suffering from a terminal to progressive, no treatment no cure, chronic pain disease! We are after 7 years finally just now making up for all of it and providing for Storm and myself perfectly.
NOW Health Canada expects us to stop providing for ourselves - as we have for the past 7 years. We are expected to stop and start paying for cannabis -* the amount Storm would need, according to Health Canada's prediction of prices would be:
10 grams / day @ $5 = $18,200.00/year
@$3 = $10,920.00/year
@ $7 / gram = $25,480.00 < what H.C. suggests.
ARE YOU F*CKING KIDDING ME? - people wonder why I swear. ;)
We can not afford it. Could you?
For something our DG is now producing for pennies?
I think NOT.
Simply because they ASSume, we are all criminals?
I know what I am and it is NOT a criminal.
All cops are Pigs.
All fat people are lazy.
All blonds are dumb.
All priests are pedophiles.
All muslims are terrorists.
All women are easy.
All men are assholes.
All politicians are criminals .. (hmmmmmmmm - verdict not yet in on this one.)
^ALL WRONG! ^ All negative, uneducated stigmas/stereo types.
This is no exception. It is wrong.
Criminals? Gardeners!? That is what they are!
GROWING A PLANT. A human right.
How we have survived - forever.
Who are you?!
I hope I have inspired more to do the same or at least THINK about it. We are powerful. We are Not criminals and we deserve the right to provide for ourselves as we have been for years. < Thanks to Health Canada.
I am very happy that my Laughing Buddha is liked. It is easy to go though this life angry, resentful, jealous and to be mean and nasty. Some people are so resentful and hang on to things that have happened to them in the past. I know a few and quite frankly at this point in my life with what we have going on - I no longer have the energy for it. I chose to remove such negative people from my life. There are days when I have to force myself to be positive. I get angry, hurt and tired. Tired of trying to make sense of it all. Tired of trying to understand why life seems so unfair. If someone is speaking bad about someone else.. look where it is coming from, sadly most of the time is stems from jealousy. I have decided that when someone talks poorly about someone else I'm going to simply walk away. I want to come to my own conclusions about people. I do NOT want to be apart of anyones gossip.
If only we all did this. Formed our own educated opinions - about everything.
Laughing Buddha is for my own sanity, I read, get inspire and then draw. Buddha sayings are so simple, all about being good. Look within. It is about Patience, Love and Kindness.
So when I post a cartoons and see that others share. I feel HOPE. Hope that I might be making a difference.
Hope that I have lightened someone's load. If only for a second. Brightened their day if only for a few moments. I have decided to come up with my Laughing Buddha cards.
My strips have done very well and I have sold a few Laughing Buddha originals. I know everyone can't afford an original but I hope they might afford my cards. Share the good vibes, positive words and help cheer up someone else with a little Laughing Buddha Wisdom.
The best thing about these cards - I have them to mail out! ;-) Who needs Hallmark-
I am my own Hallmark ;-) Back to drawing.
Halloween finally put away.. a few trinkets remain, fish are out of the pond and in the house for the winter. Todays been a day for chatting with my guys, reading, lazing on the sofa - sunshine window, jotting down some toon ideas. I love Sunday's. I have been working on my first set of cards! They look (if I do say so myself) very cool! I will NOT post them. I want who ever gets a card to not have already seen it a few times on FB. I've had fun thinking of one for every month occasion! Some turned out so good I will make them into strips...
A couple serious but most for fun, I hope to give giggles. Anyhow I am selling them in groups instead of one at a time or else I'd have to charge more money for shipping. Plus I don't know about you BUT I LOVE snail mail, who needs an excuse to send one some happy wishes? You can order my cards on my stuff for sale page.
Or maybe someone will send you one! Hee hee hee - I already have a few to mail out!!
I've also added some new art for sale. Seeing as this is my only income I guess I have to part with a few sooner or later ;-) Back to the sunshine... Have a fantastic weekend!
Seak peek of one of the birthday cards.. I wonder if Hallmark will pick them up ? ;-)
