Exposing the Reefer Madness of the Parliament of Canada 4of10 dreeshen goguen

  1. 1. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca Exposing the ‘Reefer Madness’ of the Parliament of Canada Asking all Members of Parliament if they support ending Cannabis Prohibition (by removing it from the Drug Schedule) and publishing the answers.

  2. 2. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca Official Party Stance Conservative: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense http://www.cbc.ca/news2/background/marijuana/marijuana_legalize.html Liberal: Marijuana should be legalized and regulated. http://petition.liberal.ca/end-prohibition/ Liberals understand the need to consider ending the prohibition of marijuana and addressing the root causes of crime to see real results. http://www.liberal.ca/getting-smart-on-crime-and- cannabis/ NDP: Use of Marijuana should not be legal, but consequences of possession and sales should be minimized. http://www.cbc.ca/news2/background/marijuana/marijuana_legalize.html 3.1h Adopting a harm reduction approach to substance abuse and permitting the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. 3.9i Decriminalizing marijuana possession with the goal of removing it’s production and distribution from the control of organized crime. http://xfer.ndp.ca/2012/2012-12-17-Email-Convention/Mtl2013_PolicyBook_E.pdf ‘Montreal 2013 NDP Policy’ Green: 4.8 Ending the war on drugs: Legalize marijuana by removing marijuana from the drug schedule. http://www.greenparty.ca/vision-green/p4.8 Bloc: Supports decriminalization http://www.cbc.ca/news2/background/marijuana/marijuana_legalize.html
  3. 3. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca "Our Government has no intention of legalizing or de- criminalizing marijuana. We do not believe marijuana is a harmless substance. A recent study from researchers at King’s College and Duke University found that chronic marijuana use has a direct impact on the intelligence, memory and attention span of young people. In addition, the production and trafficking of illicit drugs is a the most significant source of money for gangs and organized crime." (undated article, presumably August 2013) “Office of Earl Dreeshen, MP, Red Deer Constituency“ Norml.ca http://norml.ca/senate-report/politicians-on-cannabis-policy/earl-dreeshen-cpc/ Official Party Stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense.

  5. 5. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca Of course that needn’t be the case, but it may well be a saleable message — and not just in what we think of as the tough-on-crime heartland. Mr. Trudeau’s candidate in Bourassa, Emmanuel Dubourg, seemed to validate the legalization = more drugs = bad for kids argument in a radio debate, and said he doubted the issue was a priority for the leader because he would soon have three children. (He later recanted and pledged full support for legalization and regulation, because God forbid people in the same party should be seen publicly disagreeing over minor policy issues.)

  6. 6. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca A co-ordinated federal and provincial enforcement response is necessary to deal with marijuana grow- operations, said Canadian Alliance MP John Duncan, who addressed the congress."It is now a multi- billion-dollar criminal activity," he said outside the meeting. "It's going to take a co-ordinated response and if we don't do it the Americans are going to do it for us." March 10, 2003 at 18:40:14 PT “Marijuana Grow-ops, To Be Addressed at B.C.

  7. 7. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca "Even tolerant Holland is considering stiffer drug penalties to reduce gang violence. The nation's 700-plus coffee shops where customers can buy cannabis or hashish without fear of arrest attract tourists who pay more than $300 million Euros in tax annually. Police believe some coffee shops are fronts for organized crime. The worst of the violence, however, takes place in the cannabis growing industry where gangs prey on novices who think they can make easy money by growing marijuana. Since there is so much money and violence involved, Holland's police commissioner responsible for cannabis calls it a danger to Dutch society." June 2nd, 2009 / 1:15 p.m. “Motion in Amendment: Controlled Drugs and Substances Act Government Orders” OpenParliament.ca http://openparliament.ca/debates/2009/6/2/kirsty-duncan-1/ Official Party stance: Liberals understand the need to consider ending the prohibition of marijuana and addressing the root causes of crime to see real results. http://www.liberal.ca/getting-smart-on-crime-and-cannabis/ Kirsty Duncan, MP Liberal Party of Canada (416) 747-6003 kirsty.duncan@parl.gc.ca kirstyduncan.liberal.ca twitter.com/KirstyDuncanMP facebook.com/KirstyDuncanMP Etobicoke North (Ontario) DID NOT VOTE ON BILL C-10
  8. 8. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca "My colleagues have been very clear on the parts of the bill we do support, and that is to expedite the provisions relating to the protection of children from pornography and assault, and in fact to hold off on measures such as mandatory sentencing for youth who might be caught with five marijuana plants."

  10. 10. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca The bottom line is this: - Our Government will continue to crack down on crime and ensure the safety and security of our communities by introducing new laws that target gang violence and organized crime. - Drug trafficking and drug production is without a doubt the most significant source of illicit money for organized crime groups. - Drug producers and dealers who threaten the safety of our communities must face tougher penalties. Our message is clear: if you sell or produce drugs, you’ll pay with jail time. That is our position. Clearly you have a different opinion.

  13. 13. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca "They should take a visit to our friends down south. They are changing their ideology and they know things are not working. We do not want to get into the marijuana debate, but there are states down there that are dealing with it in a different way. Locking them up is not going to solve the problem. Locking them up at a very young age, where maybe there could have been intervention, help, or rehabilitation, is not going to make our society any safer. It is not going to make us a better society."

  14. 14. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca "It seems to me one of Trudeau's platforms has been to legalize marijuana. Clearly our government is focused on preventing illicit drug use and I think that's an important issue to the constituents of Provencher. It's also very disturbing to me when a leader of any national party admits to the use of an illegal mind-altering drug. I don't think that's appropriate for a Member of Parliament and certainly not for the leader of any political party." undated article (possibly december 2012) “Falk Reacts To Trudeau Visit“ Steinbach Online http://www.steinbachonline.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=38541&Itemid=100457 Official Party Stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense.

  16. 16. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca “Our government’s position has not changed. We will continue to resist efforts to legalize marijuana and believe that the harm that such drugs cause far outweighs any perceived benefits of legalization.” Posted on February 7, 2012 “Conservative government still opposes the legalization of marijuana“ By Grace Romund (The Cascade) Print Edition: February 1, 2012 http://ufvcascade.ca/2012/02/07/conservative-government-still-opposes-the-legalization-of- marijuana/ Official Party Stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense.

  18. 18. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca "We will be appealing that decision because, quite frankly, we believe in marketing freedom for Canadian farmers, unlike the NDP, which wants to legalize marijuana and the sale of it but criminalize the sale of western barley."

  19. 19. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca “Mr. Speaker, I am pleased that alternatives are not being ruled out. There is a case to be made that there is abuse of the substance and that there are very negative health effects to smoking marijuana, particularly over a long period of time. There is also the fact that the medical use of marijuana may be sending mixed signals to other members of our society, in particular our younger and more impressionable citizens.” November 17th, 2005 / 6:20 p.m. “Official Languages Act: Adjournment Proceedings” OpenParliament.ca http://openparliament.ca/debates/2005/11/17/steven-fletcher-2/ Official Party stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense.

  20. 20. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca Judy Foote, Liberal MP for Random-Burin-St. George's, also supports decriminalization, but would need to know more about the consequences before entertaining the idea of legalizing the substance. "I certainly support the availability of marijuana for cancer patients, which is one reason I support decriminalization. To treat someone as a criminal who gets pain relief from a disease like cancer by using marijuana would be criminal itself," she said. “If you legalize marijuana, you would be sure the product you are selling is a good product. Sometimes now you don’t know what you’re getting when you’re dealing with people who are selling it on the black market,” Ms. Foote said. Saturday, April 28, 2012 - “Most N.L.

  21. 21. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca "People (who use for medical purposes) have invested significant sums for their facilities and are suddenly forced to buy from a company. This is not a responsible approach," he said. The majority of marijuana use for recreational purposes, a reason to legalize said Mr. St-Maurice, as the criminalization of substance to regulate this behavior has "never worked." "We should be realistic and admit that it is an activity that occurs. There are fifteen, twenty years, we wanted to deny homosexuality but we finally woke up and we would have thought the same-sex marriage was crazy but now think no more."

  28. 28. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca "Dear Sam Vekemans, Thank you for your recent email concerning the legalization of marijuana. I have always supported decriminalization as the first step to legalization. Thomas Mulcair and our NDP Official Opposition Caucus have publicly stated their support for decriminalization. > Unfortunately, Stephen Harper, as head of government, has publicly stated marijuana will not be de-criminalized or legalized “on his watch.” In fact the Harper government recently put out new proposed guidelines that would make it illegal for medical marijuana users to grow even a small amount for personal use. I would be happy to receive any other comments you may have on federal issues of concern to you.” On Wed, Feb 5, 2014 at 2:27 PM, Email <Randall.Garrison.C1B@parl.gc.ca> wrote:” http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca/2014/01/randall-garrison-mp.html Official Party Stance: 3.1h Adopting a harm reduction approach to substance abuse and permitting the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. 3.9i Decriminalizing marijuana possession with the goal of removing it’s production and distribution from the control of organized crime. http://xfer.ndp.ca/2012/2012-12-17-Email-Convention/Mtl2013_PolicyBook_E.pdf ‘Montreal 2013 NDP Policy Randall Garrison, MP New Democratic Party of Canada (250) 405-6550 Randall.Garrison@parl.gc.ca randallgarrison.ndp.ca twitter.com/r_garrison facebook.com/RandallGarrisonPage Esquimalt—Juan de Fuca (British Columbia)

No one should be going to jail or be stuck with a criminal record for possession of marijuana for personal use. Contrary to Stephen Harper, New Democrats strongly believe that criminalization is not the appropriate answer in any area of social policy. We need an approach that focuses on health promotion, public education, and safety. Liberals lack credibility on this issue and their actions speak for themselves. In 2009 they voted to support Bill C-15 a Conservative initiative to introduce mandatory minimums for cannabis related offenses.” February 12 2014 at 6:16am “Facebook thread comment” https://www.facebook.com/alaingiguereNPD/posts/413280155441574? comment_id=1958616&offset=0&total_comments=1 Official Party Stance: 3.1h Adopting a harm reduction approach to substance abuse and permitting the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. 3.9i Decriminalizing marijuana possession with the goal of removing it’s production and distribution from the control of organized crime. http://xfer.ndp.ca/2012/2012-12-17-Email-Convention/Mtl2013_PolicyBook_E.pdf ‘Montreal 2013 NDP Policy Alain Giguère, MP New Democratic Party of Canada (450) 965-1188 Alain.Giguere@parl.gc.ca alaingiguere.ndp.ca facebook.com/alaingiguereNPD youtube.com/AlainGiguereNPD Marc-Aurèle-Fortin (Quebec)
