B.C. hydroponics stores threatened with new law

B.C. hydroponics stores threatened with new law
March 13, 2005
www.ctv.ca

The head of the RCMP marijuana enforcement team in British Columbia wants to crack down on hydroponics stores that sell equipment to marijuana grow-ops, but one store owner says innocent gardeners will be targeted.

RCMP Inspector Paul Nadeau says his unit is in the process of drafting a new bylaw that will be submitted to all police jurisdictions in the province. It would be up to the local police to submit the proposed bylaw to municipal authorities.

The bylaw would force hydroponics stores to operate much like pawn shops are required to. Customers would have to provide picture ID, and the store would be required to keep a list of who buys what equipment. Police would then have access to that list.

"There's absolutely no doubt in our minds that these stores cater to people who grow marijuana," Nadeau says, defending his idea. "The people who are growing marijuana -- that's who's using these stores. It's not gardeners. "

Xari Moffitt, who owns The Grow Room on Vancouver's Victoria drive, challenges Nadeau's assertion. She says her customers aren't pot growers. She even posts a sign at her cash register telling customers not to ask about marijuana cultivation.

"I have clients who grow orchids, do food production," she told CTV News Vancouver. "I have one lady who's trying very diligently to grow strawberries hydroponically."

Moffitt admits that pot growers do use the type of equipment she sells and says, "I would imagine they're shopping somewhere."

But targeting all hydroponic stores isn't fair, she says, and doubts it will make a dent in the province's billion-dollar industry. "Forcing small business owners into being the regulators and monitors isn't the way to solve that problem.".

Nadeau says if people really are buying hydroponic equipment to grow fruits and vegetables, then they won't mind going on record, and stores that cater to that type of gardener will have nothing to worry about.

Attitudes like this seem to be becoming more prevalent lately, and it's rather scary. "If you're not a drug-smuggler, then you won't mind us searching your car," "If you're not a terrorist, then you won't mind us doing a thorough background check on you." Guilty until proven innocent, at this rate, will one day permeate all court systems in the Western world.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

Be afraid, because you are guilty until you prove your innocence.

This is a perfect example of more laws and practices there putting in to play to violate peoples personal freedom...This is such a waste of tax dollars and government time...they should be busting real criminals and not humble gardeners and hobbyists.The Illinois supreme court just OK ed it for dogs to search parked cars and for use in routine traffic stops(whether there is reason to be live a(an) illegal substance present or not).In other words,if a cop wants to,they can search your parked car with out you around just on a whim according to the highest authority in the state of Illinois.To sum it up,this is bullshit and something needs to be done before big brother does all the thinking for us...That's a scary thought:-\
