Health Canada, looking after our fellow sick Canadians by adding more stress to their already stressful lives, is once again taking patients to court.
Health Canada does not want the many people that THEY granted licenses to grow their own medicine - to continue to grow their own medicine.
The problem is... *Actually to be correct:
The problems ARE:
Many of those people have invested thousands of dollars to build and set up their gardens to produce their Dr. approved & prescribed medicine. In some cases after set up, initial start up - like anything - years later, they are only now able to finally produce their own medicine for very affordable costs. Why should they now be forced to stop growing their plants because Health Canada has changed their mind.
Health Canada wants everyone to get their medicine from Government approved ($),
large scale ($), 'legal' LP Growers ($$$). A few are currently set up.
None of which, I care to promote. Read the papers? So far stories of bad product, recalls- (Imagine my thoughts recalls? ON OUR medicine and you can't tell me why? Since when is this o.k. ) it goes on, every time I turn around I am reading about everything from fraud, having to get medicine from small scale growers due to complications with the large scale, American investors and legal complications, a company already 'restructuring?' name changes? ALREADY, something to hide? Political bigwig owners (find out who owns some of these large scale 'Legal Grow' operations - It will tell you more than I can) it is almost comical - IF not for the balance of the lives of many very sick people in this country. They are still from from the ideal situation.
The problems are endless, I don't care to wast my day listing them.
Not to mention that the patients that are now currently producing their own medicine for pennies (growing plants) would be expected to pay prices that are much higher than they could ever afford. Our son medicates for his progressive to terminal bone disease from morning to night - just as if he were on any medication. We would not be able to afford Storms medication. It is NOT covered under drug benefits- BUT you better believe - it will be the next set of law suits if Patients are forced to do so.
I have a friend who's insurance company was already told to pay for his prescription.
Many people also find the garden very therapeutic. Some might say too bad. It is very important to the economy of Canada that our sick are happy, many people once the garden was set up are able to look after it, it brings them peace and keeps them happy - therefore keeping them Healthy. Is this not the point of Health Canada?
All of these topics Ive covered before.
I am in a different place. Last year when all this started and Health Canada wanted us to throw our our medicine with the kitty litter- we all laughed and shook our heads, threats of being arrested, letters of medical privacy, now mailed openly across Canada for all to be exposed. and more - my head spinning, my eye twitching my brain pulses, Health Canada is responsible for so much added stress in this family alone..
I stopped drawing.
I stopped laughing. I needed to step away.
I still can't let it consume us the way it can.
I am no longer afraid of HC's constant fear mongering.
This is our life.
Health Canada shattered my idea of what Health Care in Canada stood for.
What a lesson from start, a fear mongering, lying government concerned only with HUGE scale business and not about all the patients who will not be able to afford their medicine.
Health Canada is being exposed for what it is. So are lying politicians and their fear mongering campaigns- someone told me today that fellow making the commercials for the conservatives - is now under illegal investigation - go figure.
But I refuse to let it take now what my ideas of what Canada is.
Canadian care about each other. We are not about money.
We do care for our less fortunate, suffering.
I have faith in our court system, I have more faith in God.
I'll keep you posted.
