BUT put this into perspective. Legal or illegal - Growing plants? If you are not harming anyone in the process- Growing plants should not be a crime punishable like it is. In Canada (sigh - Oh, Canada) our 'leader' S---. H---. (feel free to fill in the blanks yourself). has it so that if you grow Cannabis you are treated like a criminal and suffer a harsher sentence than a pedophile. This applies to patients legal to grow as well. I know of a few people personally who although legal and due to a lack of response on Health Canada's time with the MMAR licenses - have put legal growers (in most cases also seriously ill patients) in danger of being arrested.
Pedophile: Someone who is sexually attracted to children usually under the age of 12, stalks and physically and mentally hurts children. Damaging them for LIFE in most cases. Some people never get over it. Yet grow a few plants and you go to jail.
WHAT makes sense about that ??? Really? No wonder I (we) get angry.
My American friends vote again soon. Some think Cannbbis is a "joke" topic that is because they are not aware of how serious it is. I only hope that they do NOT realize this after a family member, daughter or son is being labeled a criminal for life for smoking a plant.
Looking at some of the potential presidential candidates... I would be VOTING!! NOT for the guy who wants to put growers/users to death!! Not for the guy who says there is no proof in medicinal marijuana and want to abolish it the medical program all together- HE is just ARRRGGGHHHHH!! The American GOVERNMENT has taken out a patent on Cannabis for it's beneficial medicinal properties! Hypocrite- dumb ass- EDUCATE yourself if you plan on running a country.
I truly feel bad for Obama, especially since my education on the former G.Bush. I believe Obama was and is a scapegoat. We know he knows about Cannabis - he knows it is not evil. He smoked it, probably more than a few times... YET he managed to become president and the first black president at that! He deserves to be where he is on my opinion. But looks the like $$$ is calling the shots. I do think he sold out on his promises on the topic of Medicinal Cannabis. So it's up to you .. Up to US. PEOPLE can make a difference - it happens every day all around the world you just have to stand up for what you believe in. So before this toon becomes a reality - VOTE BE heard. MAKE change happen.
