CN PI: LTE: Drug Issues Start With Pot

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 07:00:00 GMT

The Guardian, 20 Oct 2017 - I thought about writing something a number of months ago about being against legal pot. The verbal abuse was crazy. I know anything I say or do will not change anyone's mind. You are for legal pot or you are not. I never dreamed about our government ever being drug dealers. I know it makes sense for it to be legal - extra tax money, less people in jail, new revenue streams for many. Over the last number of years I have talked to a number of people who have been dealing with addiction, and their families trying to help them get past this time in their life. The common thread, however, talking with people dealing with addiction, has been it all started with pot. This isn't from a survey or study, it's from talking with the addict on the street.



CN PI: LTE: MPs Stunned Or Just Stoned?

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 07:00:00 GMT

The Guardian, 10 Oct 2017 - With regards to legalization of marijuana, a mind-altering substance, I wonder if our MP's are stunned or stoned? Do these people not see what this stuff is doing to people, families, court systems etc.? There is a negative that comes out of almost everything associated with this stuff. We have seen it with liquor in the past, now some stoner in Ottawa wants easy access. If you doubt me on this, sit in a courtroom and see how many cases are alcohol/ drug related. Ask any police officers, doctor, judge, etc. what this is doing to people.



CN PI: LTE: 'No' To Methadone, Marijuana

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 07:00:00 GMT

The Journal-Pioneer, 06 Jun 2017 - A pioneer in methadone now says methadone isn't working. People on methadone are using other drugs. It is my opinion that under the methadone program the province has become the drug dealer. What is the province going to do when Justin Trudeau legalizes marijuana? Intelligence isn't an attribute required for a politician. People are seeing provinces sue tobacco companies for health care costs. It won't take long for the provinces to sue companies selling marijuana for health care costs. Methadone isn't working for addictions to heavy drugs so how is the province going to pay for addictions to marijuana? Justin Trudeau campaigned for Wade MacLauchlan in the last provincial election, it is time both leaders provide answers. I think both methadone and legalizing marijuana are a joke.

Sat, 20 May 2017 07:00:00 GMT

CN PI: LTE: Dangers Lurk With Legalization

Wed, 17 May 2017 07:00:00 GMT

The Guardian, 17 May 2017 - There was a Letter to the Editor on the subject of legalizing marijuana by a person who is in the business of treating youth who have addiction issues. I agree with what the person is trying to relay on this very important issue. The people who are in the business of treating people with addictions know first hand the dangers of this great idea that the government is bringing on and that is legalizing of marijuana. I know that from my own experience with addiction, that the results from the disease are so damaging and far reaching it boggles my mind how government can justify the legalizing of a drug that caused so much pain and suffering to addicts, family, friends and taxpayers.

CN PI: Editorial: Cannabis Is Coming

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The Journal-Pioneer, 02 Mar 2017 - As spring approaches, so does the federal government's promise to introduce legislation to legalize marijuana. The Justin Trudeau government announced back in April of last year that it would be introducing new legislation next spring. So now that spring is almost upon us, will that bill be coming soon? Even when that bill arrives, it still needs to pass through the House of Commons and the Senate.
