Editor: I too share the outrage of Health Minister Rona Ambrose 
concerning the Supreme Court allowing marijuana derivatives to be used 
for medical purposes. This decision was made to accommodate children 
being prescribed medical marijuana. In my way of thinking, if these 
prepubescent potheads can't spark up a doobie like the rest of the 
potheads, they have no right to be using it in the first place.

And everyone seems to be ignoring a glaring side effect of this
marijuana use by these children. I don't know which U.S. president
funded it, but a scientific paper that was released in the late 1960s
outlined a serious consequence of marijuana use. This report was
tabled by Prof. Billy Bob Rheddneckt, a teachers assistant/hall
monitor at Montford Technical School in Oglethorpe, Georgia, which
stated unequivocally that marijuana is a gateway drug and that there
is a 100 per cent chance or better that children dabbling with
marijuana will become heroin addicts.

This subject is much too serious for me to be joking around, but you
need a hook to get your point across. Prime Minister Stephen Harper
makes President Richard Nixon look like a pot-smoking dove,
ideologically. This man is a pure hysteric when it comes to marijuana,
its uses and laws governing it.

And he has absolutely no compassion for people, especially the
children whose quality of life has been significantly improved by
marijuana.This isn't anecdotal evidence - there are hundreds of cases
related by patients and the parents of younger children.

Harper keeps maintaining that Health Canada hasn't the available
evidence to show that marijuana is a medically viable alternative to
pharmaceuticals. And do you know why it doesn't have the evidence? He
won't fund the research, because he knows it will completely
contradict his theories and hypotheses regarding marijuana.

There is an election coming soon. I think this short-sighted autocrat
has been PM for much too long already. We need fresh ideas and a
modern, rational way of running our country.
