This makes me angry:
Leola Nicholas is a London grandmother on a disability pension. She has a number of life-threatening illnesses and relies on a motorized scooter.Did they find weapons in Ms. Nicholas' possession? There is no mention of this in the article. Just because a person grows marijuana, it does not mean they are a violent offender. We can thank the legislators for making marijuana a false crime and thus encouraging the black market, which is where the correlation between drugs and weapons comes from. And as for the curfew, how ridiculous - considering the state of Ms. Nicholas' health, I doubt she is going to be out past 9 bar hopping and whopping it up. Perhaps the worry is that she will go out on a shooting spree on her scooter? What next time, Mr. self righteous judge? Jail time for an old and sick woman for the possession of a plant? She didn't even 'steal' the hydro - she paid the same inflated rate the rest of us do here in Ontario.
The police should be out there fighting the real criminals, for example, those that violate the property rights of others.
