For years false propoganda has been put forth as medical fact and decisions are then based on that propoganda rather than the TRUTH. Every year policing agencies across Canada spend over $500 Million dollars of YOUR money fighting Cannabis prohibition.
Here's some of the lies corrupt cops have to share on the subject:
"A lot of people in Canada think that it's legal to smoke marijuana and (think) it's not worse than tobacco. Well, tobacco is very harmful for your health. Imagine marijuana." (Imagine how such lies can be told with a straight face)
“For many years, there has been a debate in this country about legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana. I'm here to say marijuana is illegal because it is dangerous, it's not dangerous because it is illegal,” Chief Armand La Barge said.“Drugs have had a significant impact on crime in the past and they continue to play a significant role in today's society.” (Did you read that somewhere)
"Marijuana is a harmful drug. It's as simple as that – no ifs, ands or buts. Period, end of sentence."
Chief White agrees with the continued prohibition on pot, while at the same time acknowledging a widely-held attitude that people caught with small amounts of it shouldn't be saddled with criminal records. But the chief said the exercising of discretion by cops, not decriminalization, is the way to address that concern. (Afterall, that`s how we harrass poor kids and steal their stuff)
Ontario Association Of Chiefs Of Police The Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (O.A.C.P.) stands firm in opposing any type of legalization of any and all current illicit drugs in Canada, including the possession of small amounts of marihuana or other cannabis derivatives. (I missed the reason you choose to take this stance, aside from greedy stupidity)
Cpl. Gary Frail of the RCMPs Drugs and Organized Crime Awareness Service. (Cpl Gary Frail is also a Canadian D.A.R.E. Coordinator)
"Drugs are illegal because they're bad; they're not bad because they're illegal," said Frail. (Didn't Chief La Barge say that) "We refute (legalization) 1,000 per cent; legalization would just lead to more victims of addiction." (Really, to a non-addictive substance)
Toronto Police Chief Julian Fantino likened decriminalizing marijuana to legalizing murder yesterday as he rejected arguments that legal pot would cut down on organized crime operations now growing it. "I guess we can legalize murder too and then we won't have a murder case. We can't go that way," Fantino said. (Wow, what kind of leap in logic is that)
Aside from being totally baffled at the lies and stupidity of these statements is my equal shock that mainstream media even allow it to be printed or broadcast and politicians spew it out with equal enthusiasim.
