Once again, Marc Emery, the Prince of Pot, has been arrested, this time in 

All citizens of our fine country should be outraged that scarce law 
enforcement resources are being wasted like this.

Marijuana is less harmful than alcohol or tobacco -- several recent court 
judgments across Canada have reflected this reality.

Justice Stephen Rogin in the Ontario Court of Appeal declared, on May 16 of 
this year, that there is no longer a marijuana offence known to law.

Do the citizens of Canada really want millions of their tax dollars wasted 
enforcing a dead law? Do the citizens of Canada really believe that 
cannabis possession is so harmful as to justify the criminalizing of over 
two million otherwise law-abiding and contributing members of our society? 
I think not.

It's time for this madness to end.
