It’s a strange feeling and to be honest, I am struggling to describe it; as soon as The Cannabis Act receives Royal Assent,I could face 14 years in jail because I help manage a compassion club and we sell cannabis to sick people. We have no intention of denying life-saving medicine to our members, or anyone else who meets our membership requirements, come what may.
The Plan – Get everyone so high that they won’t realize their rights are being taken from them
On one hand, I am happy to see all the squares working at the Federal Government unbutton their collars and get on board with the “wacky tabacky”. However, having recreational cannabis as the sole and primary focus is blatantly irresponsible. Getting stoned recreationally is not only the main priority, it is the ONLY priority.
Maybe the hope is that even though The Cannabis Act will prevent access to life-saving medicine, the general public will be so ‘legally’ baked that they will not notice.
The prognosis for medicinal patients isn’t good…
Compassion clubs and dispensaries provide an invaluable service- cannabis access. Health Canada will not back any new medical findings without long-term human studies (10-15 years), so every time a doctor signs a prescription for cannabis, they put their medical license on the line.
