Thanks for publishing George Skrettas' letter. Well meaning it is, but
the ideas Mr. Skrettas forwards represents the regimented thinking
that the therapeutic state ingrains. Iaotrogenic's aside, modern
medicine is truly a wonder to behold. None of that means our ancestors
were fools.

Cannabis, opium, and coca tinctures were the main ingredients of many
of the "patent medicines" our grandparents bought at the corner store.

Those medicines were just as effective, if not more so, as many of the
modern pharmaceutical painkillers.

The Nolin Senate Report was comprehensive as it heard from all spheres
and determined that every reason ever given to ban those drugs was
diatribe the likes of which Canadians ought to be embarrassed about.

Marc Emery protects grannies and the legitimately ill who are denied
cannabis as a choice. Marc Emery, "the prince of pot," is a danger to
regimented thinking. That's why we, the Canadian people, must protect
