Speaking as a retired Law Enforcement Officer and a legal cannabis
patient here in Canada, I am asking you to speak up and say your piece
today. Others who agree should stand up even more today and join our
incredible organization known as LEAP - Law Enforcement Against
Prohibition - based in the U.S.A. These law breakers found drugs were
far more profitable because of Prohibition.

Prohibition pushes the cost of these popular illegal substance to
exorbitant prices. This we should all know.

Prohibition entices our Law Enforcement to enter into lucrative
criminal activity.

Prohibition also fuels violence. Prohibition keeps legal patients from
being able to procure their prescriptions for cannabis.

Prohibition is the main reason criminals are rich. If we legalized
drugs today we could help pay down that horrendous National Debt and
keep the money for ourselves.

Please encourage the government of Canada to do the right thing and
legalize and regulate all drugs to make sure to get them all off of
the street, away from the criminals and into the hands of those who
can be trusted to be responsible enough to distribute them. (i.e.
Compassion Clubs, our Government etc.)

Legalize and regulate all drugs today so that our children don't have
to live with this complete and total confusion.
