Canada bows to USA pressure on Marijuana?
    #1540983 - 05/12/03 06:11 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

This article is kind of confusing...it says Ottawa's backing off on decrim, then it goes on to say that those convicted will not get a criminal record.

Hmm,

Possession to stay criminal offence. Changes come after U.S. outcry

God...
cant these people fuck off and die?

This is our country. Why does the Us government feel the need to stick its nose in everyone elses business?

Why are your leaders such lacky's? I wish they would just go ahead and make it legal and just see what happens...i see it as the US bluffing.

Is this the only source that is claiming this? I personally don't think Chretien will back down, but I'll wait to get pissed off until I hear him say it.

IMO, the best of both worlds would be living 15 minutes from the U.S.

Fuck man, you live in a fantasy world. Don't you?

You don't think the USA has big time levers to influence other countries policy? HA!

As for taxes, at least Canadians spend them on the people, (health insurance, regional development, etc.)

In the USA your taxes fund the biggest war machine in history, plus the biggest prison system in the western world. Some freedom.

Plus, you still have to pay the outrageous private insurance rates, unless your one of the 1 in 8 Americans who have no health insurance.

Real good system USA's got there.

Actually it was a loaded comment. I hear from many Canadians that their leaders are to be commended on their leadership abilities but when push comes to shove they're no better than those of a third world government. I put it this way directed at the Canadian Government: Put up or shut up.

your health care is a joke. Your socialized medicine is a pretty package filled with taxable BS.

I'm for the funding of OUR military and with the exception of non-violent (drugs, etc.) crimes i support the locking up of criminals for as long as it takes...actually i'd like to bring back the chain-gangs.

I don't pay a dime, my employer does.

wow you bought that hook line and sinker didn't you. EVERY American qualifies for either Medicare or Medicaid depending on need.

i'd say it's not perfect but i know one thing, it's better than Canada's

you're living in a fantasy world my friend, a picket-white fence, funniest home videos, family sedan, sleeping pill, blinded by freedom fantasy world.

the only possible way I can make sense of your comments is....

you must have alot of money and a huge lack of experience.
