Did Guy Lauzon Write His Justin Trudeau Marijuana Piece? by Jamie Gilcig – August 6, 2013 HARPER

Guy Lauzon PigeonJustin Trudeau’s Policy Priority – Legalizing Marijuana

 

I usually don’t comment on the policy positions of other parties and their Members, but given the content of Justin Trudeau’s first policy announcement, I feel I must. I believe differences in opinion and policy are what democracy is all about. When members of different political parties debate opposite positions on issues it allows everyone, including the voting public, to gain more knowledge about the subject matter.

Last week Justin Trudeau, the Leader of the Liberal Party, made his first policy announcement that marijuana should be legalized in Canada. When reporters asked if he was in favour of decriminalizing marijuana Trudeau said “I am actually not in favour of decriminalizing cannabis. I am in favour of legalizing it”.

This is very concerning to me for a number of reasons. Firstly, I have heard from my constituents that they are concerned about our economic growth and job creation. My colleagues across the country have heard the same. The fact that Mr. Trudeau is not making Canada’s economic success a top policy priority for the Liberal Party shows he is out of touch with Canadians and does not have the judgement to be Prime Minister.

Secondly, Marijuana is illegal in Canada because of the harm it does to individuals and society as a whole. I don’t think Mr. Trudeau is taking a look at the bigger picture on this issue. According to the experts, ultimately, marijuana is a harmful substance. Even more troubling, is that according to Fraser Macrae, former Assistant Commissioner of the RCMP, “…cannabis is a currency for organized crime.” The detrimental effects organized crime can have on Canadian communities and families can be devastating. Profits used by organized crime groups selling marijuana are commonly used to traffic illicit drugs, firearms and humans.

I would encourage Mr. Trudeau to take a closer look at the detrimental effects legalizing marijuana can have on Canadian communities and families. Personally, I do not believe marijuana should be legalized. As the Member of Parliament for SD&SG, I will do everything in my power to prevent the legalization of this potentially harmful drug. Unlike the Liberal Party, our Government will focus on jobs, economic growth and the safety of Canadian communities and families.

CFN – The above letter was a statement from our MP Guy Lauzon.  The photo of course is the now famous Guy Lauzon pigeon photo.

Now anyone that has ever looked at Mr. Lauzon’s facebook page or met the man can tell you that erudition is not his forte.   He’s not a man of words; at least not well thought words of his own, nor is he a strong public speaker.

“de mora graphics” ?

Now Mr. Lauzon would not be the first politician to have the use of a scriptwriter or staffer, but are these his deep personal thoughts or beliefs or is he just pumping the spin at the local level for Mr. Harper?

Taxpayers and voters should know this irregardless of their position on this or other subjects.   Such blatant regurgitation though should not have a name on it in this manner.

    marijuana cures cancer. Lauzon is a buffoon and a fool and a shill and a scoundrel.

  2. Diddilysquat   August 6, 2013 at 8:18 PM

    Marijuana ‘soothes’ the effects of cancer. I do not believe it ‘cures’ cancer.

    I do not believe that Mr. Lauzon is any of the aforementioned comments of Russell Barth but only a sorry excuse of not being able to put into truth in a way non-partisans can agree.

    I also believe that Mr. Lauzon is long overdue in challenging the government to provide store front clean up grants at his 4 red light corner in St. Andrews.

    For a post Office and convenience store to be in such tardy shape, it surely is an embarrassment to the entire community. One would think he would see to it that his own doorstep is cleaned up before branching out to clean up the country.

    Mr. Lauzon is entitled to his opinion. Thankfully his party will be wiped of the political landscape soon.

  4. admin   August 6, 2013 at 8:50 PM

    Also last I checked Mr. Lauzon is responsible to represent the voters and not his party. If the majority of voters in this riding wanted legalization then it’s his responsibility to bring that to Parliament.

    Some of these politicians have it backwards…

  5. nonbeliever   August 6, 2013 at 9:08 PM

    True Jamie, but as rational adults we know it doesn’t work that way.

  6. Steve De Pater   August 6, 2013 at 9:16 PM

    “Secondly, Marijuana is illegal in Canada because of the harm it does to individuals and society as a whole. I don’t think Mr. Trudeau is taking a look at the bigger picture on this issue. According to the experts, ultimately, marijuana is a harmful substance.”

    I have many issues with this statement. First issue is with the fact that you’re injecting your own personal opinion in a ‘news’ article.

    “But Steve, He said that according to experts, marijuana is harmful!” some may say. Sure, he did, but who are these experts exactly? Number of studies have shown the exact opposite of what Jamie claims.

    My second issue with the statement is that the entire reason, as Jami states, that Marijuana is illegal is “because of the harm it does to individuals and society as a whole.” Are you aware Jamie, that in our country alone, 37,000 people die of Tobacco related illness a year? (http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/story/2010/12/02/f-smoking-cigarettes-canada.html) Are you also aware that almost 4000 people die from alcohol related incidences a year? (http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/02/06/reassessment-of-alcohols-death-toll-fuels-call-to-curb-drinking/)

    If your claims are correct, than Marijuana should claim the lives of thousands of Canadians. What’s that? No one has ever died from Marijuana use? Well isn’t that interesting. So before we should worry about legalizing a substance that is 100% less lethal than legal tobacco and alchohol, maybe we should focus on eliminating the substances that actually harm our citizens.

    The entire second claim further supports my first claim. The negative connotation of this entire article isn’t warranted, and only exists because of your own personal opinion on the subject. I await your Reply Gilcig.

    “[A]re these [Mr. Lauzon’s] deep personal thoughts or beliefs or is he just pumping spin at the local level for Mr. Harper?”

    Are you serious, Jamie? Is Mr. Lauzon capable of independent thought?

  8. jules   August 6, 2013 at 11:28 PM

    Marijuana does not cure cancer at all whatsoever. If that were true marijuana would be so mighty expensive that the little people would never have it in their possession and only the very rich would be entitled to it.

    Cancer could be cured if Big Pharma would allow it as well as the doctors but it is being held behind from the people so that Big Pharma can make a ton of money off the SHEEPLE as well as paying doctors or many would not have jobs in the health care industry.

    The only thing that marijuana does is destroy anybody’s brain cells who has a brain to begin with. People just walk around like zombies and that is what kind of a society that we have today.

  9. Tim M.   August 7, 2013 at 1:52 AM

    Guy Lauzon didn’t write this. Some pimple-faced Tiny Tory in the PMO did. And they want to see illegal smuggling of cigarettes, pot, etc. going. Gangsters support political parties like the CPC who want to maintain Prohibition.

  10. Furtz   August 7, 2013 at 5:20 AM

    @ Jules. You seem to be speaking from experience. Is that so?

  11. Devon   August 7, 2013 at 6:12 AM

    I’ll answer Steve for you Jamie…To Steve: Read the entire article {MODERATED}!

  12. Matthew   August 7, 2013 at 6:18 AM

    I feel the need to correct some of the incredibly ignorant comments on this thread. Obviously this article was written by an uninformed moron. But there seems an avalanche of ignorant comments too. First of all, cannabis does NOT kill brain cells. This is a matter of fact, it has been proven that cannabis does not kill brain cells (or any other healthy cell), in fact it has been proven that cannabinoids protect brain cells and stimulate the growth of brain cells. The US government even hold patent for it as an anti oxidant and neuro protectant, 6630507. To those who say cannabis does not cure cancer, with such blind authority, need to check the research before they declare some kind of unique knowledge on the subject. It has yet to be proven either way 100% but it has been proven that THC and CBD kill many types of cancer. More proof is required before we can confirm that it is a an actual stand alone cure for all kinds of cancer, but we know it atleast can kill many forms of cancer with out danger to healthy cells. Every study that has been conducted on cannabis’ effect on cancer has shown some level of anti cancer effect, showing at the very least a strong potential as a cancer cure. Finally, as others have pointed out, cannabis has never caused a death in it’s entire history of use. People call it harmful, yet there is no proven harm to it’s use. The level of ignorance displayed by this author and many of the commenters is frightening.

  13. mariah   August 7, 2013 at 7:16 AM

    Jamie I think that many posters here have not read this to the spot where it was signed by dumbass skip lauzon.
    I think that it should be legal to smoke pot if one chooses same as alcohol with same laws.This would greatly cut out the sales from organized crime.would also cut out the costs related to court fees.Lauzon is not listening to the people,never has & never will,he is self serving to his party

  14. Reg Coffey   August 7, 2013 at 7:19 AM

    Matthew and Steve, you both seem to be confused about who is the author or the article and who is the author of the statement issued to the press. It was our MP Mr. Lauzon who claims;

    “Secondly, Marijuana is illegal in Canada because of the harm it does to individuals and society as a whole. I don’t think Mr. Trudeau is taking a look at the bigger picture on this issue. According to the experts, ultimately, marijuana is a harmful substance.”

    not Jamie. Please identify who you claim is the uninformed moron or morons.

  15. reality check   August 7, 2013 at 7:58 AM

    More people die from legal drug reactions and medical mishaps And health Canada does nothing in fact the user pay system creates a situation where things are kept pretty quiet about the thousands of deaths yearly you don’t injure the parties that pays your salary. I.E. Vioxin
    Recently Mr Lauzon and his party creates criminals of very sick individuals by creating ridiculous rules and regulations around the use of medical cannabis.
    I only uses cannabis once in my life over 40 years ago now i just did not enjoy the results .

    Mr Lauzon a political nobody in reality and is facing off against a very savvy politician who’s every word is parsed yet is more in tune with today’s youth that’s why he needs a political writer for this. Yes he young but he willing to gamble on breaking the mold .

    When it comes to Mr Lauzon statement
    (“Secondly, Marijuana is illegal in Canada because of the harm it does to individuals and society as a whole. I don’t think Mr. Trudeau is taking a look at the bigger picture on this issue. According to the experts, ultimately, marijuana is a harmful substance. Even more troubling, is that according to Fraser Macrae, former Assistant Commissioner of the RCMP, “…cannabis is a currency for organized crime.” The detrimental effects organized crime can have on Canadian communities and families can be devastating. Profits used by organized crime groups selling marijuana are commonly used to traffic illicit drugs, firearms and humans.”)
    The reality is making cannabis legal will rob the criminal’s of a product and could have significant financial benefits from legal selling, Taxes to farming. Medical research would become unfettered allowing a much broader spectrum of research. Laws could be put in place on its use much the same as Alcohol . When its comes to crime there maybe just some benefits reducing younger people from breaking the law early in their life and moving on to a life of crime. the economic saving in prison structures alone could be enormous.
    I know doctors , lawyers engineers nurses cops and yes a prominent judge that smoked none moved on to hard drugs and many still use till this day from time to time all excelled in the chosen fields .

    The conservative are on the attack and fail to realize the millions of Canadians that feel the same way i do Old Geezers like Mr Lauzon unlike Trudeau have lost touch with a very large base of Canadians, My recommendation MR lauzon if you want to save money for tax payers reduce your mailings the garbage cans are over filled in the local Post offices when they are mailed.

    is it possible his brain is clouded my medical drugs and all its side effects at his age !

  16. Stan Stalk   August 7, 2013 at 9:01 AM

    It all starts with marijuana and progresses into………

  17. gimme-a-break   August 7, 2013 at 9:02 AM

    Lauzon should have kept his nose out of this debate. The PMO would not be stupid enough to write this letter. He does make some valid points though. Is legalizing marijuana really the only policy change the libs can put forward? Reminds me of high school when they promise more dances to gain votes. I’m anxious to see how they plan to implement this policy. If it’s anything like the LCBO, I’ll pass. Just wait until we’re paying $40-50 dollars a gram so they can afford to pay the bilingual clerk 60-80k per year to sell it. They’ll spin it as job creation. What a joke!

  18. PJ Robertson   August 7, 2013 at 9:12 AM

    If you’re looking for truly frightening ignorance, Matthew, look no further than the Harper crowd.

  19. jules   August 7, 2013 at 9:39 AM

    No Furtz the only experience that I had with marijuana was to see one of my school mates all drugged up and didn’t know where he was most times. Another man that I worked with was all on marijuana and had a lovely girlfriend and ended up beating her until she left. Drugs are no good at all. All I see about Cornwall’s crimes are the drugs, alcohol and illegal cigarette smuggling. We are straight arrows here in my household.

  20. Furtz   August 7, 2013 at 10:09 AM

    @ Stan Stalk. You can say the same thing about cheese.
    @ Jules. Because you knew a few marijuana users who were jerks, you assume they all are jerks? That’s quite the sweeping judgement you make. Lots of users function just fine and have long and productive lives.
    @ PJ. You are for sure on Dear Leader’s sh!t-list now. 🙂

  21. Watching from the sidelines   August 7, 2013 at 10:53 AM

    Marijuana has become a proven gateway into Canadian politics.
    Marijuana won’t go away, Canadian politics will change despite hate, ignorance and greed.

  22. PJ Robertson   August 7, 2013 at 11:33 AM

    @ reality check. Great post, spot on!
    @ Furtz. On the list since 2006 and still waiting for a knock on the door in the middle of the night.

    @ PJ. Me too, and I’m shaking in my boots.

  24. Anon   August 7, 2013 at 12:36 PM

    “I usually don’t comment on the policy positions of other parties and their Members, but given the content of Justin Trudeau’s first policy announcement, I feel I must.”

    Sure he doesn’t, someone else writes it up for him. And this is not a policy, this was a question asked to Trudeau… As it was asked to others in the past. I’m sure he has a lot more to come.

    ““I am actually not in favour of decriminalizing cannabis. I am in favour of legalizing it”.”

    This is actually a very smart move! Decriminalizing it still leaves it as a taboo commodity. Meaning that people will still profit from its production and distribution. Meaning that there will still be a gateway dealer (not drug), for someone to have to go see instead of growing their own, and not having to go see a dealer. Meaning they can get introduced to other harder drugs.

    “This is very concerning to me for a number of reasons. Firstly, I have heard from my constituents that they are concerned about our economic growth and job creation.”

    Only his constituents that voted for him or return his useless million dollar books that mostly end up in the garbage. He don’t listen to anyone else.

    “Secondly, Marijuana is illegal in Canada because of the harm it does to individuals and society as a whole. I don’t think Mr. Trudeau is taking a look at the bigger picture on this issue. According to the experts, ultimately, marijuana is a harmful substance.”

    What experts? what independent body, not paid by the government to twist the details, are they going to for this information? as time goes by, “experts” in other countries, are releasing quite different details about this. In terms of medical use, all sorts of other uses, it is actually quite the miracle “drug”. No, the experts they are listening to are the pharmaceutical companies, the ones that don’t want this legalized because then they’d be losing out on major profits, etc, if it were legalized. Trust me you, if they found a way of regulating this “drug”, that they can get maximum profit from it, then they would be releasing this all over. But right now as it stands, its too hard for them to regulate something that grows naturally in the ground, just about anywhere.

    “Even more troubling, is that according to Fraser Macrae, former Assistant Commissioner of the RCMP, “…cannabis is a currency for organized crime.” The detrimental effects organized crime can have on Canadian communities and families can be devastating. Profits used by organized crime groups selling marijuana are commonly used to traffic illicit drugs, firearms and humans.”

    We’ve been saying this a long time. So if you legalize it, you remove this very easy tool for organized crime to use to raise funds to get the harder stuff, firearms, humans, etc. The only reason its like that right now is because of how taboo it is and because of the fact it’s illegal. Make it legal, you remove all that from the cartels, and you can also streamline the busts to the harder stuff because then there won’t be dealers if people are just growing their own. No need to go to organized crime after that. But then again, the truly organized crime in this is the government/police position on it. This gives them a reason to be able to spend potloads of our tax dollars fighting something that they’ll never beat. Making it illegal supports this logical fallacy. Just too bad that more people don’t see this.

    “Unlike the Liberal Party, our Government will focus on jobs, economic growth and the safety of Canadian communities and families.”

    Yeah, keep sending us your propaganda. Keep charging us the taxpayers. You need to get a life! There has been a decline of jobs since you’ve been in power. People are getting poorer. The elite, are getting richer.. but all part of this massive social engineering sham that you are taking part in as well Guy. You want peons, you don’t want people to think for themselves.. Else, then you’ll lose control.

    If it’s legal, it will no longer be taboo, dealers will drop like flies, only the really hard stuff will be dealt and then you can go and bust them instead of peaceful pot smokers.. Then you can really put the worse of the worst in your superjails that you’ve wasted so much money on.. Oh, the experts also said we didn’t need those.. and that crime is actually going down.. but where are you listening to those experts?

  25. Dave White   August 7, 2013 at 1:12 PM

    Seems that Guy and the good old boys are getting a bit nervous about Justin Trudeau’s rise in popularity among Canadians and the decline in trust in Stephen Harper and many of his corrupt cronies and Harper’s single minded obsession on pipelines and tar sands riches.
    But it doesn’t surprise me that Guy would launch a tirade, an attack add, as that is the way of the federal conservatives and their dirty politics.
    He Guy, Justin is not even the official opposition! Further he has only been leader of the federal Liberals for a short while and in that time your party has given ammunition to all the other (federal) parties to keep things swinging in the house of commons as you whitewash the CPC’s scandals and incompetence.
    Let Trudeau worry about the economy in a big way when he is at least official opposition and even now if you had your listening ears on he has not been silence on that subject.
    Of course your government is trying to convince Canadians that the CPC alone are the economic saviours of Canada. Let’s count….seven years of a promised balanced budget and seven years of failing to do so.
    Now on the marijuana issue, although I do not personally espouse stupefying our minds with drugs of any kind, society is changing and you are living in another era. Where did you stand on Gay Marriage? Where did you stand on human rights and accessibility for transsexuals? You voted against each of those bills that came up in parliament yet Canadians were fairer minded with regard to basic human rights and acceptance.
    On the marijuana issue the world is coming around to realize that alcohol and tobacco are more devastating than a joint or two and our law enforcement is better served going after big time crooks than violators of the current drug laws on pot. You claim to be big on ‘tough on crime’ yet are wasting our money on enforcement on an archaic notion of this drug being evil. After all, if our government legalizes pot then there would also be tax revenue from it like cigarettes (another evil killer drug). This would take it out of the hands of small criminals (and put it in the hands of bigger criminals, our governments) and let our law officers pursue and solve bigger crimes (like the Duffy and Wallin scandals). So Guy, get out of the twentieth century, or for that matter maybe even the nineteenth century with your small ‘C’ conservative views and come to realize that things have changed a bit since you were born.
    As for me, you won’t catch me smoking a joint, but that’s my right to decide and not the government.

    @ Anon. Bravo on a great line-by-line skewering of Mr. Lauzon’s patronizing nonsense.

  27. Furtz   August 7, 2013 at 2:10 PM

    Pretty much all the Con MPs across Canada are reading from the same script re the legalization of marijuana. Quelle suprise! In all seriousness, they are more concerned with the impending “Second Coming of Christ”.
    Science and evidence be damned!

  28. jules   August 7, 2013 at 3:59 PM

    Furtz I know more than what I mentioned and there is a man that we know who started out with marijuana and hashish and went to harsher drugs and is knows as an addict. He has or should I say a great wife and she divorced him. She raised her kids in public housing here in Ottawa and all three of her kids became professional engineers. These kids purchased their mother a home on one of the best streets around here.

    There is another man that we know of used to be a big time drug dealer and would bribe those officials at the airport. This man raped some women and was caught for doing that but got away with millions and millions of dollars by being a dealer. He left the country and thank God for that.

    There are many others Furtz and I can fill Jamie’s paper so I will not go into more because I can name many kinds and they destroyed their lives.

    The man that I spoke about that I worked with and had a beautiful girlfriend is so very true indeed and he was one of our auditors in the government. He had a degree and a high position and very intelligent but the drug took over his life. One day I was standing in front of a drug store not far from where we used to live here in Ottawa and here this man Stu came up to me with whom he worked with and told me what happened. I felt bad for both of them and this happens to a great many people and like I said I can fill Jamie’s paper with a lot of the cases that I know about. I know some that went to jail over that.

  29. Anon   August 7, 2013 at 4:29 PM

    @ PJ Robertson, thanks. 😉

    @ jules, you need your head read. You can’t go and lump everyone in the same boat. I can almost 99% guarantee you that marijuana was not the problem with these people. Probably more likely to be some mental issues or not admitted to, harder drugs. Like oxy’s or something. Plus, marijuana is not a gateway drug, the dealer is the gateway. Had this person you “knew”, not had to go to a dealer to get their pot, they probably wouldn’t have been introduced to the harder stuff to begin with. Food for thought. All in all, you definitely don’t have the full story from these people, but seem to get a lot of hearsay from people telling you stories. Believe what you want. I “knew” and “know” a lot of level headed people, they partake from time to time to daily, and no problems with any of them. They are all living well, they are all with avid social lives, etc. I too know some that went on to harder stuff and ended up being exactly how you are describing or as others have described to you what has happened. I’ve seen people turned into retards by legal pharmaceuticals, but I’ve never seen the same from those smoking just pot. Hash is a bit different, because you never know what ends up in that. And most of the time, those that do grow, know how to grow and supply themselves with something that does not contain the windex or other crap that gets added by again “gateway dealers”, trying to make an extra buck.

  30. Furtz   August 7, 2013 at 4:30 PM

    @ Jules. You’ve been hanging out with the wrong people. Nothing I can do about that. The vast majority of people who enjoy the weed or use it for medicinal purposes are quite normal and cause no problems to society. So, because you know a few ass-hats who smoked weed, nobody should partake of the herb? I know a few ass-hats who drink beer, and some who eat cheese. Should beer and cheese be banned too?

  31. Anon   August 7, 2013 at 4:34 PM

    @ Dave White – beautiful comments. Guy can go stand by his candle in the morning praying that the world doesn’t askew from the bible any further, and voting his religious conscience for the masses, not really asking for what “all constituents” want except for just those that voted for him, makes him not much different that the Ayatollah’s and such trying to repress their citizens.

  32. jules   August 8, 2013 at 2:14 PM

    Furtz can you imagine if the weed were legal and people were smoking it like regular cigarettes and getting behind the wheel of a vehicle or working on machinery, etc. what that would be like? Just think about this before you give me an answer. I can tell you that marijuana is intoxicating. Certain doctors like the one that Jamie interviewed has given it to a few of his patients and the police are outside of his practice.

    One thing that either you or another person wrote that it is more dangerous taking the legal meds than the weed and in a way I agree depending on what the meds are. The legal meds killed Michael Jackson and many others and these are celebrities and we hear about them all the time but we don’t hear about the everyday people out there.

    My mom had cancer treatments way back in the 1960’s and she never used weed or anything. There are people who are sick after treatments and others are not. Our friend Robert went through chemo and it never bothered him at all. The only reaction that he had was that he lost his hair. My husband’s niece is both diabetic and is a patient of bone cancer and she never used any weed. She too lost her hair with chemo.

  33. Wow!   August 8, 2013 at 2:18 PM

    I think Jules wrote his letter.

  34. jules   August 8, 2013 at 2:21 PM

    Furtz back in the 1920’s there was the prohibition era and during that time when people could not get alcohol legally they either made their own or visited their local bootlegger. JFK’s father old Joe Sr. was a bootlegger with the Bronfman family in Toronto – the booze flowed over the boundaries like water but hidden from the authorities. Elliot Ness was one of the cops on the chase after Al Capone and his gang during those days. If people want the weed bad enough they will grow it and I read that it is even grown among the corn crops in the fields. What both the US and Canadian government is doing is that they are using those drones now (it is coming out) to go and detect who is smuggling what over the borders and they can shoot down those that they want.

    Even if you legalize weed like you do to booze people will abuse it just like they do to booze or anything else. Fighting drugs is a mighty big problem. I can say that the drugs are brought into Canada, the US, Europe and elsewhere by the big shots and you can guess what I mean by whom. I have researched plenty and know a lot of whose who doing that.

    Furtz I understand about smoking the weed to be kind of intoxicated to take down the meds, etc. but there are other means of doing that and maybe practicing Yoga and practicing Creative Visualization would be a better alternative than using drugs.

  35. nonbeliever   August 8, 2013 at 3:55 PM

    Dr. Gupta the Nuro surgeon frequently on CNN apoligized on his stand on marijuana and declared it has medical value. What does he know??? LOL.. It will be nice when this country is run on facts and not fairy tales.

  36. Furtz   August 8, 2013 at 3:56 PM

    @ Jules. If I ever come down with some terminal or debilitating disease and require medication to relieve pain or discomfort, rest assured that I sure as hell won’t be asking you to approve whatever drug I use. You seem to think from your limited experience, that you know what’s best for everyone. Pretty presumptuous and judgmental on your part.
    Same thing with the use of alcohol or weed for pleasure. You choose not to partake, and that is great. But as long as a person is not causing a problem or danger to the community, it’s none of your business how they choose to relax.
    I have to ask. Who gave you the authority to decide how everyone else lives?

  37. nonbeliever   August 8, 2013 at 3:57 PM

    Furtz.. You killed me with that 2nd coming of Christ lol.. Sadly you are correct 🙁

  38. Furtz   August 8, 2013 at 4:00 PM

    @ Wow! You might be right.

  39. Rorry   August 8, 2013 at 9:28 PM

    Why is the media pushing Justin Trudeau in our faces? Canadians better wake up to the fact that media is limiting our choices at the moment and just treating Justin Trudeau with child gloves. Justin is a horrible debater and every time the public asks him serious questions it’s just one liners. Who is this guy? Why is the media pushing him like he is the second coming instead of asking hard questions?
    Even though I think the war on drugs has been an utter failure and tax on our prison systems and people in general does that mean that I am mindlessly going to except Trudeau statements at face value? Pot smokers like to talk about how functional they are and how capable they are and how the pot doesn’t affect their judgment. I would then assume that they can know the difference between pandering for a vote and sincerity.
    The media is turning us into a mindless- fearful- hateful people. I want a media that gives a crap about the truth instead of soft ball Q&A to our potential leaders. Why is no one standing up for truth in this country? Lets not repeat what the Americans have been doing for the last couple decades. Harper is not Bush in his last term and Justin is not Obama here to save the day. Votes based off emotions did not work out for the Americans and it surely will not work out for us. Its time to vote with our heads not our hearts and time to keep the media accountable for balanced reporting. Conservatives – Liberals – NDP – Green Party –Bloc Québécois are all being alienated by the Harper Government and if we want to change the corruption we need to be asking tougher questions.

    Anon if a psychiatrist tried to analyze me I might drive him or her around the bend trying to figure me out. LOL LOL.

    Furtz there is no cure for cancer at all but just a prolongation of life. My mother lived with cancers of all kinds for 30 years – yes no kidding and kept having surgeries in different places and always kept herself busy and that old gal lived to be 81 years old. My dad lived till age 80. In the past people did not have the same pollution that we have today and they ate more naturally from what they grew until the 40’s and 50’s rolled around when we had stores for foods, clothing, etc. In the past people made gardens and made their own clothing, etc. Peoples lives were different and there was not the stress that we have today.

    My husband’s eldest sister has bladder cancer – had it in 2001 and was operated on and has been cleared of the disease ever since. Some people die of it depending on when they have it and how long they were operated and treated with chemo. I do agree that chemo can do more harm than good at times and it tears the system apart especially on some people. Cancer runs on my side of the family as well as my husband’s and my husband had a grandfather who died of cancer of the stomach. My husband’s uncle who was a doctor of internal medicine had cancer of the large intestine and died in 1990. My husband’s niece in Australia is affected with bone cancer and she is also Type 1 diabetic. There is no cure for cancer Furtz just a prolongation of life. No doctor anywhere can guarantee a cure and it is in the hands of God and your metabolism.

    Furtz there is another discussion on Piers Morgan about Marijuana and I didn’t want to continue since it is time for bed. I will let you look at it and here it is:

    America’s Marijuana Obsession

    I don’t agree with any of it as usual but something for people to look at.

    @ Jules. Did I say there’s a cure for cancer?

  44. Newsworthy   August 9, 2013 at 8:26 AM

    Pot does cure cancer, not in the street form where you smoke it in a joint or pipe, but in it’s pure natural form of oil. There are many medical and scientific studies that prove it does cure cancer. There are other natural cures for cancer as well. Don’t believe me, just google alternative cures for cancer. One thing for certain, the the traditional methods of cure like kemo theraphy and radiation are very expensive and destructive to our bodies, poison. They may be effective in certain types of cancer but your whole body is sicken by the effects. Normally the cancer returns over time. One reason why natural cures from plant extracts are not available is that you cannot put a patent on mother nature. So with no money to be made, few dollars are spent to research this and make it available. Now that’s the truth, put that in your pipe and smoke it!

    Wowee Jules.. Where do you get your info?? From Guys office?? I can’t believe you think marijuana is dangerous.. The evidence is out there.. Name one person who has died from marijuana.. Please.. Now think of people you know who are alcoholics, and or have been killed, injured, or committed a violent act under the influence of alcohol. Ask an officer of the law, Ask a real Doctor, nurse, cancer patient, who you’d have do yoga for nausea???

    I have a the worst pain know to medical science and medical marijuana has all but eliminated the pain.. You ever hear of cluster headaches Jules.. There also known as suicide headaches. Read about it at your leisure. Yoga won’t help me much with that condition. Jules.. We love ya anyway brother. Peace.

    Will you go to Guys party tomorrow to cover some licensed smokers if they attend?

  47. Dwight Dugas   August 12, 2013 at 6:35 PM

    The Only reason that cannibis is a currency for organized crime, is because it is illegal. Kill the prohibition and you kill the criminal element. The drug war has failed. Miserably. Billions have been spent, all wasted I might add. Countless families have been torn apart, because dad gets caught smoking weed and gets sent to jail. Bottom line, prohibition DOES NOT WORK, period, point, blank. Ask Al Capone how alcohol prohibition worked to stop organized crime. Oh yeah that’s right, it grew it to murder, death, kill levels.
    Now I am not endorsing the Red team (Libtards) and I’m not for the Blue, Organge or Green team either. But I agree with Trudeau on this issue. Legalization would be greatly beneficial to our economy. Farmers would benefit, shops would be erected to deal in the sweetleaf. Ultimately millions of jobs would be created and let’s not forget the tourism we would experience. Holland is pretty small. Canada is huge and has a nothing but gorgeous scenery to be enjoyed by vacationers as they puff. So I say we marilize legajuana today.
    You could make spoons illegal today, because they make people fat. I promise, an organized gang will be dealing in silverware tomorrow.

    @ Dwight. You are now on Dear Leader’s sh!t-list.
    Keep your head down, and good luck to you.

    nonbeliever I looked up about cluster headaches and that is really bad indeed. You must be on a disability to have such a thing happen to you. There are meds for that and I really don’t know how marijuana can help. There is something about cigarette smoking (overuse of cigarette smoking) can cause that and I read something about possible inheritance. When they mentioned that it gets as painful or more painful than childbirth I almost yelled because I will never forget that kind of pain ever.

  50. Nonbeliever   August 13, 2013 at 11:07 AM

    Jules.. I’m never been on disability although it was offered… I don’t smoke anything and I definitely don’t drink alcohol. We differ in opinion Jules on this issue for sure. It works for me and thats all I know brother. Take care and have a great day 🙂
