To The Editor, RE: Project Paradigm Nabs Marijuana Haul in North Lancaster Ontario

269 budding marijuana plants, 600 harvested plants, 25 pounds of bud, blah blah frickin’ blah. This is a drop in an ocean. Worse than that, every bust, big or small, is a subsidy to the 95% of growers and dealers who will never be caught.

The cops are subsidizing the very thing they claim to be fighting in an effort to broaden their powers and expand their budgets. Prohibition is a make-work scam for cops who are too stupid, lazy, or fat to be security guards.

Rob Nicholson has just permanently lost my vote for the Conservatives ever again.

On the Contrary, the Conservatives will always get my vote for extraditing criminals like this, I hope he is in jail a long time, while were at it, I wouldn’t mind seeing Mr. Barth behind bars too for promoting brain damage to young people.

Theres marijuana in grade schools now, thanks to slime like Marc Emery et al. As it becomes more prevalent, how will children be able to learn anything? Oh, wait a moment, I forgot. We live in a free country.

One day, your turn can come at this point Mr. Little. Whats to stop the US from entering our country and just take random citizens away now? This was an issue of our sovereignty, and now they (government), just took it up the wazoo for Canada yet again. This could have been prosecuted here. The government outsourced it to another government to handle their problem basically. And that move was a real slap in the face to Canadians as a whole. I was even speaking to friends in the US about this yesterday, and they all said this has no… Read more »

Mr. Grimalot,

Simple enough solution to this problem, don’t be a criminal and/or involved in drugs and the U.S. will leave you alone, were not talking about random citizens being kidnapped and taken to the States, he brought it on himself and he will get what’s coming to him!

Do you Value Compassion over Profit? What, if not love and compassion, are the inner realities that make us human? Are they not peace, contentment, and simple joy? Let us, for the sake of greed, strip one of compassion; indoctrinate him to such a degree that he loses his ability to think critically; force him to be violent against people he doesn’t know through economic pressure, and place him in circumstances where stress, violent tendencies, anger and seething hatred become his inner state year after year until he is ready to kill without thinking or feeling. Some may conclude that… Read more »

I support the legalization of marijuana as I see it no more harmful then alcohol. Both will shorten your life and that is your choice to make. However, one of the effects of marijuana use is paranoia and from this letter all the signs are there. Police don’t need to chase you around to find things to do. The police I have spoke with would have no problem with legalization of marijuana. There are other things the police would like to spend their time on. I also believe that the tax revenue gained from legal marijuana would help reduce the… Read more »
