Dear Editor,

Randy White exemplifies everything wrong with state control of medicine 
[Chretien pot policy slammed, May 2, Langley Advance News]. The ugliest 
aspect of drug control has always been the necessity of also controlling 
the ideas about those medicines.

Canadians have freedom of thought listed in the Charter, but White, who's 
sworn duty it is to protect those rights, could care less about that.

Medicine has only become politicized over the past 100 years. The marriage 
of medicine and state is just as ugly as was the marriage of religion and 

Social control and engineering about medicines "by law" is to legislate our 
thoughts to match those of Randy White.

White is quite correct that the federal government has the right to pass 
whatever chicanery it likes into law. The federal government of Canada has 
a long list of atrocities, like Native social engineering, Japanese 
internment, and homosexual persecution, amongst others. Even though they 
seemed right and were supported by large majorities at the time, nobody is 
proud of them today.

The history books are filled with unjust laws.

The Bible, in Genesis 1:29 bestows seed bearing plants not to the state and 
certainly not to medicine, but to you. We have a natural right to drugs; we 
have owned that right since time began.

The Canadian people are living in medical serfdom so that White can beat 
his chest over morality. That is a very ugly state of legal affairs.
