Decrim for 30 grams almost certainty now -Canada
    #1136747 - 12/12/02 09:38 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

If America lets Canada get away with it, of course...

The house comittee report finally came out. Justice minister seemed to OK it.

Instead of prosecuting pot smokers, they get fined. Less money spent uselessly, more money collected. Plus, the politicians, judges, lawyers, police, and otherwise law abiding citizens can now smoke with as much of a clear conscience as when they speed.

Win-Win for them, so why not? And all without breaking a single UN convention. Like that nasty senate report advocated.

Cool.

That's fucking great. I really believe that legalizing pot would lead to a better world. I'm gonna move to canada for a while.

Two points:

1. Ain't happened yet!

2. Decriminilization is NOT legalization.

Still would be highly illegal to grow or sell marijuana, so the black market would still be in full force and the government would still be involved in the lives of Canadians where it doesn't belong.

OTOH, I recognize this action/discussion for what it is - a flicker of light in the bleak darkness of ignorance. I love watching Walters get all apoplectic at the thought of Canadian lawmakers disregarding his stern warinings.

Actually they are talking about decriminalizing cultivation of personal ammounts as well as posession.

It was the Senate that rcommended legalization. They made a very STRONG recommendation, as a matter of fact. But the Canadian Senate is essentially a toothless body. It's the House of Commons that has the real power, and members of the House of Commons (unlike the Senate) have to run for re-election regularly. That's why they opt for the more cautious approach.

It's a step i the right direction, hopefully cops will just not fine people and then after a while of that after finding out Canada doesn't explode when people toke,then they can legalize.

yah, but were fucked...

I love the idea, Im drooling over it right now- but i realize it will NEVER happen. Not so long as the United States is sticking their johnson where they dont belong. The fact that the US is the destination of nearly all our export (and therefore a source of $ beyond comprehension), anything we do to fuck up that relationship will never pass...

Its kind of funny though, EVERYONE ON THE FUCKING PLANET realizes that we would all be better off to decriminalize, yet some ingant ass trailer park crackers who happen to run the U.S. are still living in the stone age- so everyone here has to support a policy that does more harm than good.

Yah, its so funny i think im gonna go cry now...fuckers.  :mad:

We have economic interests too. If The people in Washington aren't willing to jeopardize economic relations with Canada over this issue either.

I wouldn't worry about it.

I honestly think the US is going to respond to this better than most people think.
