Because this thread is the forum link at the freedomtour.ca website I decided to keep it active as a blog until the Freedomtour resumes, likely in 2011. As well as a place to post some of the letters I have written in the past.
Been busy for the last while making banners, postering and preparing for this years 4/20 rally in Vancouver at the art gallery.
Very sad to learn of the passing of Jack Herrer, his book, The Emperor wears no clothes was the catalyst that caused me to dedicate my life to the cause of liberating cannabis that ultimately turned me into a rights activist and advocate for individual freedom and liberty.
Jack can rest peacefully as his work will continue on until the goal is reached.
Here's today's letter from the archives;
Supply and demand is a real law.Re-legalizing drugs would remove"criminals from the supply side.This would save/generate huge amounts of money,some of which could be used for education and services for those who require them. Drug addiction and ABuse is a big problem (alcohol, tobacco, opiates, prescription drugs caffeine, sugar etc.) but prohibition only serves to increase abuse, raise prices, compromise purity, create "criminals" and stigmatize users. This only supports gangsters and corporations that sell "legal"(lethal) drugs.
The war against some drug choices(mostly plants) is a war against our own people, makes crimes out of things that are not crimes and breeds disrespect for governments and police. Maybe we should have our "public servants" make gasoline or sugar illegal?gasoline is sniffed and may be connected to some arsons. Sugar is causing diabetes and obesity. Help end the madness. Politicians against legalization support organised crime.
Adults deserve the freedom not to be bullied.
