My ex-wife recently passed away from liver cancer, and the pain of 
her final weeks was eased with medical marijuana.

Thus I was pleased to read of Justin Trudeau's plan to legalize 
marijuana use. With the recent police raid on Saskatoon's only 
medical marijuana store, not so much.

The officer whom I saw interviewed on TV with his straight-faced, 
"They were selling drugs," rationale made me wonder at the police's 
motivation. Certainly, busting a retail store and arresting the sales 
staff is far safer than the fictional drug raids we see on TV shows, 
but is there no real crime in Saskatoon anymore? Are all their speed 
traps broken?
