All hail our robed masters of the Supreme Court!

      Don’t bother with the effort. Biased Bev already has lots of her own. You can tell by reading her rulings and public announcements.

      (please, Puh-lleeeezze! Let Harper be still in power when this biased, manipulative, activist old scrag retires.)

  • Jay Currie

    Perfectly sensible decision.

    If medical marijuana is legal – and it is – why make the delivery method illegal.

    There are some issues regarding dosage with edibles – the slogan of pot brownie makers being “Bet you can’t eat just one”. But the same can be said of aspirin.

    Rebel should get out of the business of having hissy fits over personal choice.

    • Glenfilthie

      Anyone that thinks that friggin POT can do things that modern prescription drugs can’t – is an idiot. This isn’t about medicine, it’s about balding, sagging elderly hippies pushing recreational drugs. Far as I’m concerned any methods too oppose it are fair game. The cops, the ERT/ambulance people and those that deal with the victims of this ‘harmless weed’ are firmly against it. Yet the mouth breathers that use it are calling the shots!

      I’m not worried about idiots like these letting the pot heads out…it’s just that you’ve now paved the way to let them ALL out. How much ya wanna bet that the next drug to be mainstreamed is crystal meth?

      I swear to God – Pandora must have been a Canadian liberal moron too.

        It’s not that simple. I agree with Jay Currie. I also agree with some drugs like pot and cocaine and opium being illegal. But I only think they should be illegal because we have public health care and welfare. If we were to go back to the days of Queen Victoria where people paid their own medical bills and had either private charity or starvation if they were unemployed I would be happy to take away all he rules and regulations regarding what drugs people want to abuse themselves with. But if w are going to live in a world with a massive social safety net it would be completely non functional if we did not have restrictions on peoples behavior. If you want a society where people are free to do whatever they want, you can’t also have society pay for the consequences of those choices.

        • jayme

          If a mature adult wants to do drugs in there own house I don’t care but this idea we should allow kids to do pot in school as it will help them with there learning that I take great issue with.

        • Glenfilthie

          Oh bullchit. It IS simpe! Look hard at these dummies advocating medical pot – the vast majority of them are recreational users as well. And – the vast majority of THOSE will still seek dedicated prescription pharmaceuticals to cope with their condition. Pull my other finger, fellas…it has bells on it.
          And yeah, we probably could go back to Victorian times and still have a reasonably sane society with legal drugs. But it’s not just us in multiculti Canada anymore. Look at what drugs have done to blacks – they are losing entire generations and communities to drug abuse. At least Americans understand the need for self defense and licensed concealed carry! Vibrants do not handle drugs well. Isn’t it just like this retarded nation? Legalize drugs – and ban self defence and handguns because we citizens apparently can’t be trusted with them – but pot is just fine! Hopefully when The Knock Out Game comes to Canada, the white players will all be liberals, HAR HAR HAR!
          Why idiots like Jay want to take us down that road is beyond me – but I’ve read his stuff before and suspect he – and the entire liberal judiciary of Canada – are recreational pharmaceutical hobbyists themselves.

          • canminuteman

            I don’t think we are disagreeing with each other. I said I didn’t want drugs legalized because it wouldn’t work well in the world that we live in now. I think you agree with that. But if our “betters” have decided that pot will be legal, does it really make any difference what form it comes in?

            I think an argument can be made that the black community has been destroyed by welfare, not drugs. I think the drug use is as a result of not having to worry about where your next meal is coming from. They would probably still do drugs if they were working, but if you have to get up and pick cotton everyday or starve, it’s pretty hard to spend your day in a drug induced stupor. Opium addiction was a big issue in Victorian times, but it was an issue for the independently wealthy idle class, not the working class.

          • jayme

            I live near a black community where there are tons og job to be had but because they have grown up on welfare they think its there right.

          • andycanuck

            I disagree with all of Jay’s (libertarian) comments on this thread but he’s no idiot.

          • Absolutely. In fact I agree with Jay completely, and I disliked pot the few times I tried it years ago. No recreational pothead me.

            I wonder if Glenfilthie would like to ban booze as well?

        • El Martyachi

          But if We are going to live in a world bubble with a massive social safety net. It would be is completely non barely functional. if we did not have restrictions on peoples behavior.

  • Clausewitz

    I so glad we no longer need parliament to pass laws. Just get some Progressive Betters with a law degree together and make it up as you go along. Who needs elections and a way for the Peons to give notice to their wishes anyways. Just shut up and pay your extortion taxes.

    • Jay Currie

      Nothing to do with Parliament. Health Canada put out regulations specifying that only dried pot, which can only be smoked, was the only legal way for people to ingest what earlier decisions have decided is medicine. This was rather tranparently silly and the Court understood that. End of story.

      Parliament has a perfect right to legislate medicinal pot illegal but it has to do so in an explicit and constitutional manner. It has chosen not to.

    • G

      Really, in the past 15 years has there been ANY supreme cunt decision that has NOT been 100% predictable?
      As soon as you know the vaguest description of the subject matter of the case you know how the courts will rule.

      Bev & Rosie and their lick-spittle lackeys on the SCOC operate like this:

      1) Decide which cases they want to hear – (translation “What laws to we want?)
      2) Decide how they want the law to be, in other words rule without announcing the ruling.

      3) Wait while the opposing parties present their facts.

      4) Cherry pick what facts you choose to acknowledge and create whatever justification you can for deciding how you already have.

      5) announce the new law to the peasants.

  • BillyHW

    If marijuana was medical why hasn’t medical science been able to isolate the effective ingredient and put it into pill or vaporizer form?

    • Waffle

      They have. There’s a joint venture doing just this between a Toronto company and an Israeli company.

      • andycanuck

        Actually, there already has been in pill form for a long time. (Don’t know about the vaping type though.) The potheads say that it isn’t as effective as smoking and that’s why they fought for, and won, the “right” to smoke pot for their “medical” conditions.

        • just a thought

          One of, if not the chief of their “medical” conditions, being an aversion to reality? 🙂

        • Waffle

          Don’t knock it. When you’re in pain 24/7 it’s less constipating and addictive to drink a little weed tea or to munch the occasional brownie than to pop Tylenol 3s.

      • El Martyachi

        “joint venture”…

        • Waffle

          LOL!!

  • FactsWillOut

    In the 19th century, pot, cocaine and heroin were legal. They were never a big problem until they were made illegal.
    All 3 have medical uses..
    France is the biggest producer of opium poppies, that they use to make morphine with.

    • Waffle

      Pot didn’t become illegal until the 1930’s.

      Uh oh, all this talk of pot just “triggered” a song:

    • canminuteman

      They became a problem when the “social safety net” was created. If you have to pay your own medical bills, and feed and house yourself, most people tend to make more prudent decisions about their “lifestyle choices”.

  • j

    There are some who claim that drugs “were never a big problem until they were made illegal.” That’s more than a bit naive, as the actual history reveals.

    regulation of harmful substances was initiated for the very reason that they were harmful.

      Ooops, I entered my id incompletely. Sorry about that.

  • Remember- these are the same sort of people who tell you that nicotine replacements (so as to quit smoking) and soft drinks are the devil’s food stuffs.

    Carry on.

  • Backa Bock

    As a libertarian, I see this as a win for liberty. I don’t really see it as a progressive issue. The government shouldn’t tell me what I can do with my body.

  • just a thought

    “Hey, Cheech, Where’s the food man?”

    “Sorry, but I had the munchies and I ate it.”

    “Well, where’s the record?”

    “Oh, I put it on to play.”
