If you give a man enough rope... he'll hang himself. Is this what Health Canada was hoping for? People have been providing medicine for themselves, with Health Canada's approval and now they have changed their mind and want to take that right away from the people.
For years, Canadians have invested time and money and educated themselves on the task. Not always an easy one, for some it is all they are physically able to do. Grow their medicine.
Growing for themselves keeps them safe, affordable and easily attainable.
For many it has become a passion. It keeps others feeling useful and not a drain to society to be able to provide for themselves or a family member. <3 Much like Grandma grows tomatoes in her garden and shares the good health with the rest of the family.
Think about it - You tell me the difference. Strictly on the plant level.
There is none.
All this will be gone. They will be forced to pay higher prices (according to HC), will have fewer options, some will turn to opiates because they will be able to get them easier. It is sad.
They will continue to grow what they need to survive, but now they will be afraid to do, what a few months ago was not only legal but encouraged by Health Canada. Will they go to jail? Will they lose their investments? Homes, kids, famalies. lives.
Who's government treats it sick this way?
I know too many people who are losing sleep, a few hope... some say they are at the end of their rope and the despair in their voice is obvious. It is a shameful thing to be doing to people over a PLANT.
If they could say it kills people/it hurts.. but they cannot - instead only proof on all it is doing to help those who need it. I'm too tired to start to name why.
Please show your support on this issue.
One day it might be you who does not want to take an addictive pain killer for your back ... or you will want your child to use cannabis if they need too.
We already have a leaf on our flag a maple leaf = Plant
Cannabis = Plant
*Our hotel is booked for the TY EXPO ... <3 I hope and pray to see you there.
Before we celebrate and welcome in a new year, I believe it is important to reflect and remember the past year, those who we have lost ;-( , and some events that now with the new year many might hope will be put 'behind us' . We must forgive but we can NOT forget. For in forgetting we set ourselves up for a repeat. Too many things happened this year that should not have. The oil spill, you don't hear anything about it anymore but there are many that still have not had their livelihood returned, lives lost, creatures lost. For Greed.
Greed was a hot topic in 2011. Harper and his Jails - God help us. Obama and his broken promises hurting many already suffering victims. Broken promises broken dreams ;-(
Monsanto and the suicide seeds. Trying to control FOOD around the world!? W.T.F?
FOOD should be available for all - forever! Especially if you can grow it. GMO's in general are on the top of the Naughty list.
Sooner or later changes have to be made. I do believe that the biggest part of the problem is not being educated on the topics. It has nothing to do with being stupid- It is about being interested or made aware of the details, and how can you be when so much energy and $$$$ is being put on the opposite- keeping us in the closet. Distracted. Not to mention life keeping us all busy - trying to survive it. The only way we will survive is if we work together and educate the masses. AT LEAST - get them thinking! ;-))) So if it starts with a cartoon - fantastic! I believe with this toon, people will look at it and try to figure out what I am saying. Most will get it - LOL -I hope. I started a contest today (see contest page)
in hopes that people will share this cartoon and perhaps get someone curious enough to start to pay attention. So do NOT forget the Naughty - DO not let the Naughty get away with repeating the nasty they did in 2011. Make 2012 s better place for ALL of us.
My wish for 2012.
