Re: Cotler Orders Celebrated Marijuana Activist Extradited To U.S. For
Trial, June 18.

Renee Boje ought to be rewarded for her courageous stand against the United
States government on the medical cannabis issue.

There is such a thing as compassionate grounds for granting political asylum
and Ms. Boje is the perfect candidate, since she faces 10 years in prison
for the "crime" of providing medicine to the ailing.

Given the fact that Canadians accept cannabis as medicine, Ms. Boje ought to
be treated here like Mother Teresa not Ma Barker.
