First Marc Emery throws his support behind the NDP in an attempt to legalize marijuana only to be threatened with a law suit shortly thereafter, because of a campaign picture produced by the B.C. Marijuana party of Happy Jack and a giant pot leaf.
Now we learn, via Neale News, that Marc-Boris St-Maurice, the former leader of the Marijuana party, is throwing his support behind the Liberal Party. It is no wonder Canadians are confused:
Canadians are confused about what the federal government means when it talks about the decriminalization of pot, a new poll shows. The poll of 1,000 Canadians was done by the polling firm SES for Tory MP Randy White.If we want the government to butt out of people's private lives, joining the enemy is not the answer. In an earlier post, I briefly examined the Liberal's proposal and suggested the likely outcome will be regulation in the form of a taxable government monopoly over pot sales, and harsher penalties for growers. The statists should not be spending taxpayer money on 'public awareness' campaigns and 'treatment' programs - before we know it, weed will be sold with a mandatory warning label. Marijuana use is a personal choice and not something the government should be controlling at any level.
