Re: "The weed creed," April 18.

Well done, Mr. Pat Johnson, a very enjoyable read, and the photos with
the story synergize the feel that change is indeed in the wind.

Mr. Emery and the power of the Internet have combined to ensure the
revolution will be digitally televised on

Mr. Campbell and the premier should do a quick sociological pulse
check of Vancouverís East Side and recognize that the voice of the
people, eloquently represented by John Gordon, is being listened to
very seriously, certainly more and more by mainstream media.

More than 100 years ago the British Empire began to crumble as people
embraced larger ideas than Victoria had to offer. The political
platform of the British Columbia Marijuana Party is not strange. It
contains ideas and solutions to the problems the old guard could not
resolve. The time for actualizing the political ideas of brilliant
people like Marc Emery has arrived! Peace.
