Re: MLA wants stronger rules for medical marijuana (The News, May 18).

I don't know why everyone has their bum in a knot over the medical
marijuana rules.

This program will be shut down by the end of the summer, and so will
every compassion club in the nation.

The government will ignore court rulings, over-ride the Charter, and
shut the doors over at Health Canada's medical marijuana offices.

Then the RCMP - who already have all of our addresses and plant and
storage data on file - will start rounding up former license holders.

Since, by that time, there will be new mandatory jail sentences in
place for growing more than even one plant, all of the former license
holders will have to cope with their MS and cancer and epilepsy and
AIDS in one of the 12 fancy new jails that Stephen Harper is building
for us.

So all the pot-haters can now rejoice: Mr. Harper has won, the medical
pot program is officially dead, and all of us dangerous gardeners can
be caged easily so that the gangsters can reap even bigger profits.
