If Stephen Harper gets a majority, my wife and I, as well as about
3,000 other federally licensed medical marijuana users in Canada will
die. Harper wants to shut the whole program down. If he gets a
majority, not only will he end our legal access to medical marijuana
- -- and violate our charter rights in the process -- it wouldn't be
much of a stretch to have us all arrested. The government knows our
names and addresses. The RCMP would be only too glad to arrest sick
people and deprive us of our medicine because we are an embarrassment
to them.

(Don't be melodramatic. No one's going to shut it down.)
