Toronto -- Re Ottawa Plans To Launch Clinical Marijuana Trials -- March 4:

I find it puzzling that the Canadian government would need to acquire drugs
for medicinal marijuana testing from the FDA in the United States. Taking
into account the recent controversy surrounding split-run magazines in
Canada and the proposed taxing of American films, I sense some hypocrisy.

British Columbia is home to some of the best marijuana in the world. Should
we not be supporting our homegrown industries?
