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.
According to Health Canada now it will be easier for patients to access medicine (they can no longer afford) via Canada Post. Visit the distributor ONLINE, order and it comes in the mail. Woot Woot! "It's in the mail... " will take on an entirely new meaning.
We had a family conversation about this the other night and had many interesting thoughts. FIRST of all theft. From Postal workers and others watching postal workers or patients that share information unknowingly, the possibilities are endless.
The Postal System does indeed have theft problems. Who does not?
To say they don’t would be like saying there is no such thing is a corrupt cop or a pedophile priest. I WISH it was not true in any case.
Lead us not into temptation. That is exactly what Health Canada has done.
I have had problems with the mail we all have. Let alone returning crappy products.
O.k. never mind that - ‘one bad apple don’t spoil the whole bunch’ - more importantly, the safety of these postal workers.
Why are we NOT reading anything about this?
I wonder how they like the fact that they have all just been turned into legal drug dealers. Ahhh, only in Canada Eh!? Pity.
Criminals hold up armored cars and drive away with interact machines - don’t fool yourself - someone is already thinking and plotting. Are Postal workers entitled to carry a weapon? DO WE WANT postal workers to carry a weapon???
I am also worried about my friend - she lives alone (in a ‘troubled’ area of Toronto) in a large building and is concerned she will become a target. I understand completely and would feel the same. It is just ONE MORE added stress many patients do not need or WANT.
How about a Postal strike?
Insurance for “LOST Mail”- Big deal, what will insurance mean to me when I am hurting without my medication?
More toons to come.....
This is just another set of problems - get ready to start reading about them and then you can thank Health Canada. & Steven Harper. Remember it is your tax dollars paying for this and of course I imagine there was a contract with the postal service & gov. so they made money... Ah, that’s Harper - keepin it in the family.
‘Harpers Canada’ family... Not the rest of us.
The more I read the less I understand.
Actually the more I read the more I really understand...
It's not about us, or care for our health it is about $$$
Facts ca not be ignored for much longer.
People are tired of being sick, and sick of being tired. ;-)
I had to start a paper mache project just to give me a break - although occasionally I find myself drifting on how I want to draw a specific toon..
Have hope! Believe in the power of people to end the insanity.
I was reminded of this one I drew a couple of years ago. Looks like I was right.
I know why I do not like to read the paper. I read facts like the above and I wonder - is it just me? IS it NOT common sense that what we are doing is NOT right? LOOK at the numbers. LOOK at the facts. LOOK at our kids who are suffering, too many kids - too few teachers. TOO little funding, loss of ART classes (sad), taking all of the fun stuff out of school because of no $$$$. YET - S.H. (fill in the blanks) is spending $$$$$$$$ (more than I am sure we are being told) on private prisons. Our criminals are coming out of prison better educated than our children growing up on our streets. Look at Karla Holmolka -now - a.k.a Leanne Teale. W.T.F??? What is it going to take to get this changed? FACT: Criminals usually come out of prison better criminals. Surrounded by 100's of your peers - what else would you expect?
Turn a blind eye... then don't complain in 20 years when all our kids are in prison because they had such a shitty education, and all they could turn to to survive is crime.
It is not S.H. we should blame. It is ourselves for not speaking up and demanding change. Change starts with getting rid of S.H. and private prisons in a country that the crime rate has declined - yet we build private prisons- common sense? IF your child is one of the few that will receive a great education because you can afford it - TERRIFIC!! He/she is still going to to be growing up with the many, that cannot. They will feel cheated and disappointed through no fault of their own, by an education system that is clearly failing the masses and are correct. It will not create a better, peaceful world - only an angrier one.
BUT that's o.k. I guess, S.H. is making room for all of those angry little beings that are growing up.
The toon says it all. I am so sick of reading about S.H (fill in the blanks) and his positive speeches about freedom, compassion. W the F is he trying to kid!? Not us Canadians.
It's not about him selling off our natural resources - well - I know that we ALL need to work together in this world and help each other. BUT Steven Harper? That power hungry, jail building - AAAARRRGGGH!! We'll be lucky to have our shirts by the time he is done! WHAT about us ? Do we NOT have any say in any of his decisions?? I fear not.
What does he care, when done - he won't get in another 4 years - but he will be incredibly wealthy as will his family for generations - at what expense? OURS.
ONE thing OBAMA was right about "Jackass".
As for all this talk about FREEDOM to China.. Perhaps he'll visit Tibet while he is there.
Talk to them about Freedom.
He should take some time to talk to us regarding our many concerns but he's too busy playing ping pong.
