Bill C-15 Should be Given the Respect it Deserves. Anyone Got a Match?

With so many other things going on, Bill C-15 is one thing that we cannot allow to be trivialized. And we certainly can't allow it to be passed.

With the economic crisis and this government's horrendous handling of our finances, this is something we should look at. Putting more people in jail is not going to solve the drug problem. And this is not a government who wants to put money into rehabilitation or the health issues of drug addiction.

They just want to pander to their base and charge us for it. Besides, Stockwell Day used to be a regular pot user, though I suppose he's not the best example for the cause.

So instead of throwing billions of dollars into building American style super prisons, it's time to call a truce on this damn war against drugs, where the only enemies become the police and a government that wants to marginalize it's citizens.

There is a group in the United States made up of police officers and clergy who agree.

I don't smoke pot, but I'm not stupid enough to believe that doing so should be a crime. Legalize it and decriminalize it. It's a no-brainer.
