Former Chief Claims That Marijuana Could Be the Path to Reconciliation

Oh, for the love of crumb-cake:

Former Assembly of First Nations chief Phil Fontaine says his pitch to produce medical marijuana on reserves is getting lots of attention from Indigenous communities hoping to get into a potentially lucrative industry.

About 100 First Nation communities and business interests are keen on the enterprise, he told the National Post this week, though some stigma remains around cannabis and its production.

    Somebody must have been high to come up with that loony idea.

    Which indigenous societies engaged in farming prior to the 1500s?

    Ah, the “traditional” “native” custom of growing marijuana. Wait, who do they think they are? Palestinians and their made-up-on-the-spot “history?”.

    Well if it makes the Injuns too dopey to get in those stupid drum circles then I’m all for it.

    Not many people knew that Police Chief Blair and George Smithermen bought a nice piece of land North of Toronto with the expectations that the Federal Government and Ontario liberals would give them the Permit to grow pot to sell to the FEDS .

    It makes sense for why Chief Blair let Smithermen go free on any manslaughter charges when his hubby committed suicide from domestic abuse . Just months after the death Furious George was campaigning for Olivia Chow’s Mayoral race.
    Chief Blair went after the pro-life protester but ignored the violent pro-abortion thugs. he also did squat over the laws being broken during the PRIDE parade and some of the child-abuse by muslims that used children as shields or to hold up pictures of blood soaked corpses.

    Blair had his eyes on a Liberal MP seat and knew he had to be pro-child-abuse, pro pedophilia , islamophilic , support the LGBT2W , pro-choice , pro-illegals and condone pot smoking in pubnlic because he want to grow it and get rich over pricing ti to sell to Justin and Wynne.
