Casual Conversation while under the influence of marijuana

Besides being a practice attempt at editing a video using one sound scape of a dog park conversation and a bunch of stills, this video is important to my political cause.

I am sitting at my favorite spot at Trout Lake trying to get a bird sound scape when a mother and son happened by. They were drawn into a spontaneous conversation over their love of the White Wolf. What is remarkable is the fact that I had my pot pipe in my hand and had been toking as they came by. She was perhaps in her sixties with him in his thirties. The event was totally benign and uneventful. Why would I need to be made a criminal over my actions? These people don't seem to mind my behavior. We are getting along fine.

Why would the government need to step in and control this with criminal sanctions?

Am I insane? I just don't get it. How could anyone in their right mind want to criminalize some like me? What is the friggen problem here Mr. Harper? Where is the need for government intervention?

Why would someone need to go to prison for five years for selling the seeds of this plant?

Am I nuts, or has the world gone over the edge? I honestly don't get it. Where is the crime?
