Ontario court strikes down Canada’s pot laws

"Mr. Justice Donald Taliano of the Ontario Superior Court struck down the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations, arguing they aren’t doing enough to ensure patients can obtain the necessary approvals to use the drug. Simultaneously, he ruled two sections of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act – those that prohibit simple possession and cultivating marijuana – are unconstitutional, since they can be used to criminally charge medicinal users who haven’t been able to obtain such approval.

The ruling means the government must either improve its system for licensing medicinal marijuana patients within 90 days, or it will become legal to use or grow the drug for any purpose. The government can, however, buy itself more time by appealing the ruling."

Brian Schweitzer Vetoes Repeal Of Medical Marijuana Law

A good day for pot

"Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer has vetoed a bill that would have repealed the state's voter-approved medical marijuana law.

Schweitzer, a Democrat, vetoed the Republican-backed measure Wednesday along with several others he called "frivolous, unconstitutional or in direct contradiction to the expressed will of the people of Montana."

So much for Republicans'

So much for Republicans' bulls*** about smaller government and more freedom.

Now when are the Canadians

Now when are the Canadians going to strike down all the other brutal and senseless laws they have on their books?

Never

"Law and Order" has been Stephen Harpers mantra for many years. They are all set to build a bunch of new prisons and bring in US style "mandatory minimums". The newspapers play along with this, they are in permanent state of hysteria over crime, dispite the fact that crime rates have been dropping for decades.

To Canada's credit, she has

To Canada's credit, she has large expanses of resource rich unpopulated territory, which will make survival much more likely for men of the mind when, not if, the socialist society comes crashing down.
