Canadian Marijuana Advocates Wondering Why Arrests Continue in Spite of Plans to Legalise


Canada will soon introduce legislation to legalise recreational marijuana. Pot advocates are not as happy as you might think.

The Cannabis Culture dispensary in downtown Toronto gets a steady stream of foot traffic around noon on a weekday.

But Marc Emery, who helped set up the franchise that flouts Canadian drug laws by selling pot to anyone over 19, is annoyed.

The dispensary had been raided the day before by Toronto police.

"It's the government's intention to legalise it. So why is the government still arresting people?" he asks.

People in this world look at things mistakenly, and think that what they do not understand must be the void. This is not the true void. It is bewilderment.

    I may be way off base here but maybe the reason police are still arresting people for possession of pot, is because until the law changes, pot is still illegal.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    You were to think those people were high or something for such a stupid comment

    I imagine he also wonders why all the men in black robes are tying strings to his arms and legs in preparation for January
