I've come up with a solution to the current oil/gas pipeline 
controversy. This plan will have the full support of B.C. residents:

* Legalize marijuana.

* Make B.C. bud a recognized agricultural crop.

* Form a Crown corporation to market and price B.C. bud. Including 
the creation of processing plants and warehouses.

* Establish a pipeline system which will deliver B.C. bud to every 
customer in the province and to export terminals on the coast.

* The B.C. bud can be made to flow through pipelines by liquefying 
the product or by drying and aerating the product.

* In these forms B.C. bud can be moved in a pipe and stored like 
conventional fluid ready for packaging at the sales source.

* Any leaks and spills would not cause environmental damage. Not 
explosive. No risk to woods, waters or oceans.

* Hugely popular product would give new business opportunity to 
farmers and stop the transfer of agricultural land to build condos.

* Immigration to B.C. would increase tenfold making us the biggest 
economy in Canada. Pipelines to Alberta would be reversed such would 
be the demand for our product. The provincial government would be 
debt free in the first year of sales. All the traditional government 
subsidies would be restored.

* Environmental activists would welcome this natural product into 
their communities.
