Canada has refused to participate in the United States' unnecessary
and malfunctioning missile defence shield, so the U.S. is punishing us
by refusing to open the border to Canadian beef.

Without the U.S. market, most Canadian beef farmers will go bankrupt.
One simple solution to the problem is to let all the suffering beef
farmers grow marijuana!

Farmers in every province could grow fields of marijuana that could be
used for both medical and recreational uses.

They would be right next to fields of hemp that could be used for
fibre, fuel, food, paper, building materials, lubricant, and about
25,000 other industrial applications

Canada needs the $3 billion in annual tax revenue now more than ever.
The money could go to help farmers, the health care system, education,
the military, the environment, even law enforcement!

Imagine the look on George W. Bush's face!
