The news was of a violent attack during a robbery to get a pot dealer's product. I know this man to be a peaceful business man with ethics as are most marijuana dealers. But this isn't the first time and there is nowhere to turn to except yourself in upholding your own safety.
Why I opened up a store and demonstrated in Victory Square was to be able to bring this activity into the safety of other normal commercial enterprises. I did call 911 when we were assaulted at Victory Square but rather than go after the violent criminal whose drug turf we were challenging the VPD chose to enforce the CDSA.
So let me explain to you imbeciles who can't put 2 and 2 together, once more, what will happen in this incident multiplied a thousand times. Since the police won't protect you, you have to do something to stay alive. Quitting supplying a natural product to honest people who need it is not an option. There has to be an alternative to alcohol for those who choose it. Tyranny will be fought on its own terms wherever it rears its ugly head.
So if there is no rule of law, having been coopted by organized criminal violence as well as an increase in individual lawlessness and violence, where do you turn?
Let me explain to you that most likely this person will turn to where everyone does eventually in a dangerous lawless jungle, EITHER HE WILL GET HIMSELF A WEAPON OR BETTER YET HE WILL HIRE A WEAPON OR SOMEONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO HANDLE A WEAPON.
So let me explain it to you morons, this is the sure way to ratchet up dangerous violent crime in your communities: Make sure that no stores open up to sell it to people over 18. Keep it illegal so that criminals can use the law for their enterprise. Cops will always have job security when you create many petty criminals who supply people with a freedom of choice. Some of these will not be petty criminals though. They will control the lesser ones and set the pace of conflict.
A better crime recruitment and lawlessness escalating program than prohibition could not have been invented. It's a perfect fulfilling, self serving, fully integrated system where politicians get elected spouting its lie, cops get hired to fight the crime caused by bad laws, and society gets fed more propaganda about we need even tougher laws to give more ruthless criminals an even more lucrative reward. The whole insanity is dependent upon a moral judgment which has not been proven valid.
DRUGS ARE NOT AS BAD FOR INDIVIDUALS AS WELL AS SOCIETY AS ARE THE PROHIBITION LAWS.
There is absolutely no way that Canada can escape what has happened to Mexico if we continue to go down this path to ever more lawlessness. Violence and crime only beget more lawlessness and there is no way that the state can keep up with the rate of escalation it causes through stupid laws that go against the freedom of choice people are born with, against human nature, our proclivity to seek out altered states of consciousness.
When you make criminals out of people who sell plants and seeds, you are going against the primacy of nature and you are bound to reap rewards commensurate with such idiocy.

Four hours of tooling around in my sandals and socks yesterday on behalf of the Marc Emery cause was worth it. There is another demonstration happening tomorrow at Victory square 2 pm. Why is this man being tortured for selling seeds when the crime is not prosecuted in Canada. Some people seem to have been inconvenienced. My nice shoes which fit like a glove are still in prison awaiting my return. It's an all day round trip to North Fraser by bus that some of my friends made more than once to visit me. It was almost worth it to have been in there because it has given me perspective and understanding that I am loved by more than a few. No matter how silly I sometimes get, some people stick by me and more seem to find me. That is why we must stick with Marc and all those who fight for this cause.
I am surprised at the increase in my blog attendance since before I went in-as high as 500%. Thanks to everyone. I wish that people who believe in that sort of thing (prayer) would pray for a friend of mine's mother who is very ill. We need more prayer and good will/"vibes" in general for everyone, including those imprisoned. Its about affecting the water molecule with your spirit. I'm getting some more work today, so that is good.
I am sad to hear of the financial and other difficulties people are going through. I feel it too. I know things are getting better for myself as well as others. Happiness is a mental state which can be accessed from any other state of being.
Had a chance to see the documentary that the young film maker from Capilano University made; The Freed Man.
She did a very good job getting the balance of humor, honest insight, and over the "top-ped-ness" just right. The last is not easy to do when you are dealing with someone like Chief Justice Bud the Oracle.
Statements made while on the outer limits of reason such as "I'm captain of this ship" were not as stinging to watch as I thought they would be. Although I did have my runny nose and was my carelessly dressed self for all to see, I was not ashamed of what I said. Considering that I was mostly high on good pot, during the trout lake and store scenes on my favorite 60 mg dose of MDMA I performed well.
There is nothing that I did regret saying or doing. Who I really am as you would meet me in the dog park at that time comes through. She did extremely well to expose the passion of my politics but not to get caught up in them.
Robin the Registrar came through very real as well, including his intellectual brand of good humor. In watching it the diversity of our natures comes through and I again marvel at the pragmatic way Robin and I can work through things although we are political opposites.
The film is exactly what it was commissioned to be: a true slice into our lives at a very special moment in time, and a minor point in history.
I am so glad this young lady got to do it and that she did such a good job!
She has promised to put it up on her Youtube account so that I can embed it into the blog and link to it. Some consent forms to be signed and such. This young lady will do well in her craft, I am sure
