    I’m sorry.. But this is a waste of our tax dollars. If marijuana was legal we wouldn’t have grow ops.. We’d have people growing two or three plants in their yards.. Very sad.. I know the police are just doing their job and its not personal, but I think we need to do away with this 7 billion dollar/year in Canada, waste of tax money. My two cents.

    And again the media succeeds at only showing one side of the story.

    The side that isn’t being shown is that this raid was done to a licensed patient that is caught in the bureaucratic red tape purposely put in place by Health Canada. This side also doesn’t show that a sick person will now be forced to go without medicine placing their health at further risk. This side doesn’t show that this will result in thousands of tax dollars needlessly wasted by filling the courts to only have the cases dismissed based on medicinal necessity.

    Maybe the media could show the entire story for a change so we can stop this insanity once and for all.

    @Marcel Gignac I’m 100% sure that a marijuana license doesn’t allow someone to grow over 200k worth of plants. I seriously doubt they were using it as just medicine. To believe so would be incredibly naive.

    it doesn’t say they confiscated 200k worth of plants..

    everything they repossess including property gets tallied up.

    The drug war will be over soon in this country, so no matter.
