The decision of Health Canada to make the approved users of medical 
marijuana purchase this item through licensed producers has resulted 
in increased costs to the people who need this drug for medical 
purposes. The biggest enthusiasm for the conservative government's 
actions are the street sellers who now will provide the drug to the 
people who in the past have grown their own. If this government had 
been in charge when alcohol was outlawed and was a major problem it 
would've never been legalized. However, the decision to legalize it 
has enabled governments to obtain significant tax money and control 
the usage. Legalization of marijuana would have the same effect on 
funding coming into our government. The extra funds could be used to 
assist the disabled, jobless and others. It is a shame that federal 
and provincial governments aid the people in other countries with 
millions and millions of dollars while they have no funds, or very 
little funds, for Canadians tha! t are homeless, go to bed hungry.
