I agree with Midland Police Service Chief Paul Hamelin: it is his duty to
enforce the law.

Since there is no law against possession of marijuana, I trust that Chief
Hamelin and his officers will not engage in the practice of seizing and
documenting people who happen to legally possess marijuana.

If the Midland Police, or any other Ontario police force for that matter,
engages in this activity, I can assure you that citizens who have their
Charter rights violated by these searches and seizures, will certainly
enforce the law as well - and seek substantial monetary compensation against
the police through the courts.
