Comment: To all the simpleton coppers out there: Give it up. The people have spoken. Marijuana is almost decriminalized in Canada. Why do you persist in enforcing laws that Canadians do not want or respect?
Perhaps we should set up a hot line where ordinary Canadians could document the crimes committed by police officers on a daily basis. We don’t want to do that, but if you keep on going after pot users, (hear me Nanaimo RCMP troglodytes?), we shall have no choice but to begin the process of documenting police crimes across the country. Hint: coppers have the highest rates of domestic abuse, alcoholism and suicide in the overall population. Then we’ll proceed with planting false evidence, perjury, and just being plain stupid. We don’t have to cater to you. We are your bosses, get it? You work for us. Don’t like it? Quit your job and do something useful for a change. Or move to the Barbaric State of Dumbmerica, you’ll fit right in.
For example, all coppers have their favorite bars. Here they even have their own private club. It’s just a matter of placing a volunteer citizen outside their drinking hole and documenting the evidence. It won’t take long. They are human, just like the rest of us. If they don’t stop harassing pot users, I suggest we turn the heat on them by making them accountable for their own behavior.

Judge Pierre Chevalier just issued a stunning statement on marijuana prohibition. He said in unequivocal terms, that a man brought before him for the “crime” of growing 30 marijuana plants at his home, should face no more than $1.30 fine.
The ruling was symbolic, but it went beyond the mere gesture when the judge said point blank that the rules prohibiting the man’s action are “obsolete” and “ridiculous.”
Mario Larouche, 46, had been facing possession charges for the 30 marijuana plants kept at home.
The Canadian judge’s ruling was in line with what the new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his party have said about legalizing marijuana.
The Quebec judge said this about it all:
We are in a society where people are accused of possession and use of marijuana while more than half the population has already consumed. These are laws that are obsolete and ridiculous. When one is in the presence of laws which would have more than half of the population has a criminal record in Canada… And probably most Crown Attorneys and defense, and perhaps judges, but I will not comment on it.
Then Judge Chevalier explained that “46 year old Mario Larouche had tried numerous times to get a prescription for medical marijuana, unsuccessfully”
There are “so few doctors are willing to prescribe marijuana for pain relief, despite the mountains of evidence proving its effectiveness without the disastrous side effects of prescription painkillers. This forced Mr. Larouche to break the law in order to treat his pain.”
Chevalier said the system itself is broken.
“Monsieur is in a broken system where it does not give people access to a natural medicine that goes back centuries, millennia.”
Do you agree? If you want to see more judges TAKE A STAND like this, then help SPREAD THE WORD!
