Marijuana use illegal in Canada unconstitutional?
    #3965170 - 03/24/05 04:01 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Taken from the Canadian Charter of rights and freedoms.

7. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.

Liberty: freedom from external (as governmental) restraint, compulsion, or interference in engaging in the pursuits or conduct of one's choice to the extent that they are lawful and not harmful to others

Justice: The quality of being just; fairness.

This is the section of the constitution that has been used over the past few years to make marijuana medically legal here in Canada, and was also used in the Windsor case that resulted in the summer of legal pot, back in 2003.

why don't we get everyone together and try and use it again?

And are you saying there was a summer we had legal pot?

Yeah! You don't remember that? It was only two summers ago, a court case in Windsor ruled that possession of marijuana was NOT illegal (beacuse it would be unconstitutional to have it illegal). It lasted for a few months.

Marc Emery went on his "summer of pot tour" and smoked a joint in front of the police HQ in a bunch of cities accross Canada. Coffee shops opened up in a few cities where you could go and openly smoke bud (there's still some around, and the police don't seem to really care now).

I think it ended when the supreme court ruled that pot WAS illegal, at least until the law is clarified or something.

I wish I lived in Canada... or England...

At least they READ their constitutions before passing laws.

In America, more and more, we get the laws first, then the legal system tries to clean things up.

Yeah, I don't think I was smoking pot yet aq couple years ago. I started near the end of grade 12. And I wasn't around that summer so I wouldn't have heard anyways. Yeah I dunno. Anyways I think we should bring that back up or something because there really is no compelling reasons for it to be illegal.

uhh....we do? ok maybe they Do read. doesnt mean tehy follow.

that to me looks liek a whole shit load of grey area. that could be used to make it legal or illegal i would think.

honestly i think they ONLY reason it was cleared medicinally and talked out legalising is for votes. but then so is everything form reoads to healthcare. martin and crew are digging for votes and that is one issue that will define a very bright red line between liberals and conservatives. my 2 cents.

I'd rather have politicians doing things just to get votes than doing things just for money/personal gain!

I was really happy when Martin & Co sided with the Canadian people and said NO to the US missile defense shield, and I hope him and his croneys keep it up by listening to the public on the issue of marijuana, too!

iwas also happy with that. actually i was almsot in shock when he showed a little backbone! seems they even showed a little more about the free trade BS thats been going on. and now we have "permission" to retaliate....this is where i am betting my nuts martin and co and harper and co will both FAIL miserably, although for differnet reasons.

Thanks to the international decree that marijuana cannot be legal in any country affiliated with the UN, I don't think we (Canoodlians or Yanks) will be seeing it legalized soon.
