Emery to be charged

David McCann, a Vancouver resident, plans to file charges against Marc Emery today "to prove a point." According to the Globe & Mail, "Mr. McCann said he has hired prominent lawyer Peter Leask in filing three charges of conspiracy under the Controlled Drugs and Substance Act and the Criminal Code of Canada.

"This is about sovereignty and hypocrisy," McCann is quoted as saying, "... Every now and again I think Canadians have to stand up and say to the government, "You're doing something wrong here.'"

There is some chance that these charges, if accepted by a Canadian court, will nullify the extradition of Emery. This is because a Canadian cannot be extradited when facing the same charges in his or her own country as in another country. Sort of like double jeopardy in the U.S.

Here's hoping McCann's plan works.

COME ON PPL! EVERYONE THINKS THAT POT IS A GATEWAY DRUG. WELL IN A WAY IT IS BUT IT IS us WHO GOES AND LOOKS FOR SOMETHING BIGGER AND BETTER. WE ARE THE WEAKNESS NOT THE DRUG. MR EMERY IS JUST SOMEONE WHO IS TRYING TO HELP EVERYONE. LOOK AT HOLLAND, THEY GIVE HEROINE AND ALL THE DRUGS YOU WANT, AS LONG AS YOU DON'T HAVE SEEDS ON YOUR PERSON. THAT'S WHAT CANADA SHOULD DO. OKAY, SOME PEOPLE SELL DRUGS BUT HAVE YOU EVER LOOKED AT THEM AND ASKED THEM WHY THEY ARE SELLING DRUGS. THE MOST COMMON ANSWERS YOU WILL GET WOULD BE THAT THEY ARE JUST TRYING TO SUPPORT THEMSELVES BECAUSE OUTR GOVERNMENT IS DOING A PISS-POOR JOB AT THAT.

SO LET MARC GO. HE IS TRYING TO PROTECT US AND OUR CHILDREN FROM THE PPL WHO SELL AND DEAL FOR THE CASH NOT THEMSELVES.

Marijuana isn't a gateway drug. Almost everyone drinks alcohol before trying pot. Pot isn't the first thing the vast majority of people have tried to alter consciousness.Why isn't alcohol the gateway drug? Remember how as a kid you'd spin around real fast to get dizzy? Why isn't spinning in circles a gateway drug?

My point: the gateway drug argument is shite.

alcohol and tobacco are gateway drugs, and the government is subsidized by the alcohol and tobacco industry to deal drugs for them.

both alcohol and tobacco are dangerous drugs.

life for drug dealers, especially alcohol and tobacco!

Gordon Campbell is a drug dealer!
