I am through being fucked over by the government of Canada. It feels great to be free. No one handed this to us. We claimed it! Freedom belongs to those who claim it!
People can't understand what we have done. The fact is we have plainly, honestly, provided the government with a crucial reason to take us seriously. We state the obvious: prohibition is the cause of lawlessness and gun violence, and the purpose of law is to promote good public order.
Therefore, the inclusion of psychedelic drugs, to wit marihuana, psilocybin, lysergic acid diethylamide, dimethyltryptamine and analogues, salts and isomers thereof, is contrary to s. 2(b) of the Charter as it infringes upon freedom of thought, but is such infringement within “reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society,” thus saving the scheduling by s. 1? The purpose of law is to promote justice, judgement and peace. The aforesaid academic, corporate study concludes that a likely natural consequence of your prohibition is homicide and gun violence. Therefore, this infringement of cognitive liberty is not reasonable, for it promotes gun violence, and violence is the opposite of peace and is the act of the unjust: it is injurious, and it is unreasonable for people to be injured by the acts of a purportedly free and democratic society.
Although my marketing/promotions slogan is "Psychedelics for sale" this is only an effective sound bite, and and has nothing to do with my goal, community safety, directly. Indirectly our activism is an example of exactly how this is done: through control and regulation.
How could any government that purports to be free and democratic reasonably find us common drug dealers? Most people are trained to believe that they are doing something wrong when they market "drugs." I am promoting public safety via marketing drugs for the benefit of humanity. No one can honestly paint us as anything else. Why would I need to fear doing something so noble as that?
An email this morning:
Was walking behind you yesterday downtown on my way to check my schedule at work. You look like your having a good time!
That's exactly true . I was and do have a good time doing this! That is why I am doing it. God knows that unless I am having a good time, a reward in itself, fulfilling my need for instant gratification, I would never have the staying power to see this through. It is precisely because I love Wu Li Dancing and it feels great while I am doing it, that I am so productively engaged.
It looks like they are accepting me as Bud the Oracle. With that recognition of course, comes full recognition of my claimed rights. It feels good! The reason why I won't let up confronting them is that this should put strategic pressure on officers with a conscience to put pressure on people up the line for the exact reasons we claim. We must have the exemption card: for our safety and that of the officers who might come into contact with us, as well as the general public surrounding any future actions. There is no need to risk anyone's safety, when all we are about is peacefully trying to make our community safer and thereby make police work safer and more respectful. I am sure that many of the good compliments I get on the street are from cops both male and female either going off or on to shift. Some really look like cops and I assure you I am excellent at spotting them. I bet many intelligent young people joined the police forces for the right reasons, but because seniority plays such a large part in chain of command, you don't necessarily get the most competent in power.
