I got a buzz on just watching the video. Is this what it takes to engage todays younger generations in politics….Take away their joy juice? Hey Cornwall and area, I’m pretty sure Super Guy supports all of the regressive conservative policies including sending Marc Emery off to the Good Ole U. S. of A. He’s got several offices with open doors……..

Canadians do not want Marc Emery extradited but the Conservatives are not listening. Time to make them listen.

PLEASE RE-POST THIS STORY IN EVERY AVAILABLE MEDIA SOURCE YOU HAVE! ESPECIALLY ‘U.S.’ NEWS SOURCES . THERE IS A CENSORSHIP ORDER IN PLACE IN THE USA REGARDING THIS STORY AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE BEING KEPT IN THE DARK, PLEASE HELP WAKE THEM UP! FREE MARC EMERY , A POLITICAL PRISONER! If Marc is guilty of anything, the charge should be for being naive enough to trust his own government to protect his rights and freedoms, The Canadian Government is an ‘ACCESSORY’ on all counts to every charge and allegation agiainst Marc Emery and must be held accountable for their… Read more »

How can Marc Emery be a political prisoner when he has nothing to do with politics? You must be smelling too much smoke.

I am 100% against Marc Emery’s extradition, but I don’t know if I really agree with the tone in the above video. The protest seemed a bit hostile. Public perception plays a large role in the loosening of marijuana laws. This might be more successful if they had focused more on education and less on making a scene.

Major kudos to the protesters anyway.

Marc Emery would smile at that. What a terrific sensible move and occupation it was for that proper group to behave as they did. Thank God the future can lead itself. Rolling marijuana on the desk of your Member of Parliament is clearly upheld by the Canadian Supreme Court. The ruling is by Mdm. Justice Claire L’Heureux-Dube. It is correctly upheld that the court house (not including the judges chambers) MP’s office, airport, train station or anywhere else that the public may normally pass is a public place. Thus one may demonstrate,speak, protest, hand out leaflets without prior approval, taxation… Read more »

Scientific evidence! Just by watching this video proves it all – National Inst. for Drug abuse writes about these pot heads (dope heads) – “Not surprisingly, marijuana intoxication can cause distorted perceptions, impaired coordination, difficulty in thinking and problem solving, and problems with learning and memory. Research has shown that marijuana’s adverse impact on learning and memory can last for days or weeks after the acute effects of the drug wear off.2 As a result, someone who smokes marijuana every day may be functioning at a suboptimal intellectual level all of the time” There is more – “Effects on Daily… Read more »

“As a result, someone who smokes marijuana every day may be functioning at a suboptimal intellectual level all of the time”

And urm, Alcohol drank every day? There are many substances when abused that cause harmful effects. If this is the reason to condemn them please don’t stop with Marijuana. Include Alcohol, cigarettes, high fructose corn syrup, food ingredients that look like latin and Little Mosque on the Prairie.

No, this argument simply shows why Marijuana needs to be legalized, controlled, and taxed.

The Conservatives are hiding. They are hunted. Funny feeling isn’t it? Feel marginalized, criminalized and stigmatized? Now they prorogue their offices. They can hide from our native brothers and sisters too. They can hide but they thank goodness for automatic deposit. The Crown is absolute that this marijuana protest must take place to prevent Bill S-10. It is legally binding to smoke pot in your MP’s office. It is the law. I remember when Pierre Trudeau was being confronted by a nation of incredibly angry truck drivers. They had gathered and struck and came to Pierres’ front door to express… Read more »

Like the blind leading the blind: Mat 15:14 “Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch”.

Jamie you left one vice off your list – lets outlaw sin!

Well Tom Sin is in the eye of the beholder. There are things that you have typed that would condemn you in the eyes of some religions. The reason we have separation of church and state is so that no one religion can impose their beliefs on others.

The laws of the land are what we’re speaking of now. I try and leave the rhetoric for others. The world can’t afford rhetoric. Do you have any substantial points to debate the thesis of the legalization of Marijuana?

: “Do you have any substantial points to debate the thesis of the legalization of Marijuana?” See above already!

admin

That was my point Tom.

tnpreacher555

So are you saying that the information from the National Inst. for Drug Abuse website is not “substantial” – has no substance in putting the record straight about the dangers of pot smoking? And such warnings are not sufficient to give us good reason not to legalize pot?

admin
Admin

Yes Tom. I’m saying that information is not reason to not legalize Marijuana. There are far more severe data about the impact of Alcohol and Tobacco. Curious. In your world would you criminalize those substances? Gambling?

To: Admin In church history, the Evangelical church (non – Roman catholic) has been blessed by God with seven evangelical awakenings since the Great Reformation of the 1500’s. In those awakenings, God has totally transformed society on a whole, inside out. Criminalization was not needed to remove the major social vices such as drunkenness, gambling, and prostitution that plagued society. Men and women were so changed for the good, that they lost the tasted for alcohol, they became good stewards of their money, and they honoured marriage. Being now true born again Christians, such committed their lives to live a… Read more »

Pastor Tom don’t waste your time arguing with stoners, they have an excuse for everything. Wait until their children start smoking pot in the schools. We know that children younger than 10 are smoking now and when they switch to pot just watch their grades go up in smoke. Soon those who are not stoned will be ostracized by the stoners.

Tom, surely even religious scholars such as yourself understand that everything that you just spouted is only relevant if the person you are debating is of the same belief system. The world is made up of many belief systems. You are entitled to what you believe and personally I’m glad for anyone that has a belief system rather than none, but when it comes to the laws of the land there’s a certain way of discussing an issue. For instance our Prime Minister’s beliefs probably lie closer to yours than my own, but if he stood up in Question period… Read more »

you asked – “Yes Tom. I’m saying that information is not reason to not legalize Marijuana. There are far more severe data about the impact of Alcohol and Tobacco. Curious. In your world would you criminalize those substances? Gambling?” so I replied.

Tom you actually didn’t answer my question. You shared a lot of information which I tuned out of fairly quickly after skimming. It was a very simply question I asked you, most likely a simple yes or no would’ve sufficed.

Trying to have a debate or discussion with the pastor is an exercise of futility. He has all the answers, and all those answers come from ONE book. There is no thinking involved in his “arguments”… just regurgitation of passages from that book. I think that one of the great attractions of these religions or cults is that no thought is required… sort of like letting drugs taking care of all your problems. Quite sad, really.

Roy Berger

There are now even more videos on you tube of MP offices being used for uplifting valid discussions relating to the end of Prohibition and the freedom of Marc Emery. Members of Parliament Andrew Saxton, James Moore, Peter Kent and Colin Carrie now know to keep an ashtray and ZigZag papers present on the counter for the future return of Pot Angels. See you all on you tube…and thus the credibility of the social media continues to escalate.

Stan

Yeah Right! Let’s just smoke another joint and all our troubles will disappear.

Roy Berger

I see that MP Patrick Browns office in Barrie just had a marijuana rolling contest. So far that’s MPs Andrew Saxton, James Moore, Peter Kent, Colin Carrie and Patrick Brown. All these MP’s have learned the proper way to roll a joint. I hear the Young Conservatives for Sane Marijuana Laws are renting a huge bus because they have lots of dad’s money.

well over 75% want it legalized or decriminalized. Same with 88% of the country wants the Auditor General to be able to audit parliament. But, our governments have other plans, they no longer listen to the people that put them in power!
