Laugh all you want, but here we are, officially recognized as a society.
And it has cost not a penny for lawyers nor did we need to raise thousands for our efforts. Something bigger than Robin and I wants this to happen. That's because this came about without decades of national publicity, millions of dollars raised in storefront activism. So go ahead AND LAUGH AT THE CRAZIES. we are doing ok.
You people think it's about religion. How sad.
It is only that you can't conceive playing chess at this level, or any level, that you are getting what we are doing mixed up with personal beliefs, faith and religion. What Jack has done in this has more to do with legal strategy than with his personal beliefs.
I'm no bible thumper but sometimes I hear truth/god when reading the bible, or any other book that stimulates me into hearing the voice of truth. In the bible it says that one can hear the voice of god coming from the mouth of an ass. That pretty well says to me that hearing god is the form, not reading, the voice only happens when I am reading something that touches me with the truth.
On our membership form we don't define god or say his words only come from the bible.
I,.........., do solemnly affirm
"It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of god"
That sits well with me, because although I don't cater to belief, I sometimes "hear" the truth when I search honestly for it.
All I can say is that my Gian consciousness is still a viable perspective along with every option/ understanding which presents itself.
I'm just curious so I ask the big questions constently when something stirs me. Seek and ye shall find the truth. For oneself.
The big problem is that we get our personal belief systems mixed up with the concept of law. The reason for choosing Deuteronomy to base our society on, is as I understand it, that this is the basis for all our laws in north America. We want to be close the oak tree of the law to show that we are not just hooligans, but in fundamental agreement with the law. We aren't in agreement with these corporate statutes though, which harm Canadians daily, much more so than the drugs which were not prohibited by God in the Bible. Tyranny was prohibited and so was homosexuality no matter how we feel about it today.
I have been pro gay rights since the early times because I see no reason to control or judge others (this is reserved for god in the bible and so is any punishment as god sees it, not me) and have written about how normal it seems to me to see same sex couples walking in freedom in this city.
Those are my personal views. Everyone else is entitled to theirs. All we want to do is to repeal the CDSA and to control and regulate drugs for the safety of everyone. the Unincorporated Deuteronomical Society is a legal instrument to bring about that end.
Surely you understand that this is a means to an end, not the end itself?
Everyone has at one time resorted to buying their pot off the streets even though you knew that you were supporting organized crime. Well, hold your religious beliefs privately, affirm that statement for membership in the unincorporated Deuteronomical society and join us to defeat the insanity. Joining our society marks no one with the label Drug user, or even Marijuana advocate and aligns us with the foundation of the law. Membership in our society cannot cannot be sneered at by those who claim to be of goodness and belief in the bible (mostly those who currently rail against marijuana users)
They were not playing on our field and now we have challenged the status quo with this new perspective. I assure you that we will have licensed regulated marijuana vendors plying their trade openly before the summer is out.
It does not cost a cent to join! We will be auctioning off the first legal marijuana sales licenses/sales permits soon. Members will be able to posses marijuana without a medical certificate and be able to grow for their own needs. To market retail or wholesale vendors will need to be licensed by the society. The potential for membership growth is in the millions in Canada alone. Many more than marijuana smokers may join. Guaranteed, our laws will govern and regulate the trade, unless the government of Canada repeals the act and takes control before our deadlines given through formal notice.
Think of how powerful it would be to be able to claim to have 6,000,000 members in Canada all standing behind the society's ultimatum. Not the waiting for a single judge to render a decision (their playing field) but to have 6 million people demanding a change and taking the matter into their hands (our playing field). Which of these political cowards could stand against something like that?
I'd take any odds that this would be successful before I pinned a single penny on the hope that a couple of legal beagles could wrangle it through our corrupt Kangaroo Court System. There the dice are loaded against you from long ago, as tradition shows. Idiocy reigns in these legal judgments which have given Canadians flourishing, well funded, organized crime, and general disrespect for the law causing rampant lawlessness in our society. When I talk to peopl I know that I can reach them. Those who were fortunate enough, including MPs, to hear Robin and I deliver this ultimatum were listening to us, evident to me, from the expressions on their faces
Personally I hope to bid for a license too, someday, and leave the role of Chief Justice to someone else.
All that needs to happen is for people to give up their personal bullshit and join and as sure as I started my threads here claiming that the pot laws have fallen they will (as they have for me personally)
Come on and join and if you don't like me or Robin vote us out of office and elect someone more to your liking, but for god's sake get off your antagonistic, argumentative asses and join something that has already come farther than anything you've seen happen in the courts.
Or be the self centered righteous pricks you are and get facked, because we are moving on from these decades of pseudo activism cloaked in commercial enterprise.
We, the Unincorporated Deuteronomical Society are a movement for social change, not for self enrichment and we are going to have an honest truthful, good good smelling dump right into the big fan moving the stinky air of Canadian politics.
The good shit has already started to hit the fan on April 30th, so you know we are not bullshitting anyways.
You bet I sound arrogant, because once launched on this soaring flight, there is no stopping me. Those elected geeks posed no intimidation to me, rather I see them as criminals destroying our society because they have no ethical foundation. They rely on fraud induce fear for their success. These people are the worst hypocrites to foist this crime on Canadians and model our nation after the lawless USA for trade, ostensibly. It is only because the are ethical cowards and corrupt, talentless goofs that the lies continue so that they can entrench their corruption for decades more.
