Subject: Re: 8 Candidates in B.C., grand total 71
". . . A lot of people have deserted the MP to join the NDPot as you know. .. "
Really? I don't see them running as candidates for them. . .
All I really see is a very outspoken group of activists from BC gagging themselves for this election and the next one in the fall. . .
what, they might have 100 to 200 people read that mag this month and see they sold out to that wantabe big money political union ruled TAX AND SPEND machine
and 8 candidates ! WOW WTG BC!
That makes 71 Candidates! , thats over 3 million voters seeing "Marijuana Party of Canada" on the ballot That makes them think about it and that, thats victory beyond belief, and far far more than whatever his name is in bc is doing.
3 million Voters seeing that word Marijuana on the ballot. Thats acomplishment, and we did it on our own.
Boris, the realistic leader of REPEAL! he put his name and party name on the ballot and runs against the PM. that is beyond bravery, its heroic and far more than anyone else in Canada has ever done!
Boris for Order of Canada. :)
YES , it was so important to the wantabe big money union ruled party, that they put it all the way down on page 56. One paragraph, and they say they want to lock up impared drivers. LOL all the studies say it makes drivers drive safer.
"UK cops are persisting in introducing a series of roadside tests for stoned drivers, despite a study released by the UK Transport Research Laboratory in August 2000, which found that pot-smoking has a minimal if not beneficial effect on driving performance.
The government-funded study was launched under pressure from anti-drug and driving groups, and was an embarrassment to the British Ministers who had expected it to support their anti-stoned-driving campaigns.
The British study confirmed the results of a wide variety of research into stoned driving from around the world:
A 1983 study by the US National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) used stoned drivers on simulators, and concluded that the only statistically significant effect associated with marijuana use was slower driving.
A comprehensive 1992 study by the NHTSA found that marijuana is rarely involved in driving accidents, except when combined with alcohol. It concluded that "the THC-only drivers had an [accident] responsibility rate below that of the drug free drivers While the difference was not statistically significant, there was no indication that cannabis by itself was a cause of fatal crashes." This study was buried for six years and not released until 1998.
Another NHTSA study performed in 1993 dosed Dutch drivers with THC and tested them on real Dutch roads. It concluded that "THC's adverse effects on driving performance appear relatively small."
A massive 1998 study by the University of Adelaide and Transport South Australia analyzed blood samples from 2,500 accidents, and found that drivers with cannabis in their system were actually slightly less likely to cause accidents than those without.
A University of Toronto study released in March 1999 found that moderate pot users typically refrained from passing cars and drove at a more consistent speed than non-users. . . "
And it looks as if our prohibitionist loving Big Money wantabe union ruled TAX AND SPEND political party is all ready to sign on to this invasion of our Rights and Freedoms , instead of standing up tall and proud for our rights and freedoms, as guaranteed by law.
We did not Decriminalize Alcohol prohibition, nor did we Recriminalize Alcohol, and we never Legalized Alcohol. We Repealed Alcohol Prohibition that started in Alberta, and we can repeal Marijuana Prohibition.
You can help repeal Prohibition like our ancestors did. Support the only Political party with a realistic Platform that is easy to understand simple to implement and beneficial to All. Support the Marijuana Party how ever you can.
Support REPEAL OF PROHIBITION not draconian Recrim or hoakie decrim. VOTE MARIJUANA PARTY!
