Latest developments in Canada

1) Toronto becomes the first municipality in the world to endorse the Vienna Declaration. The city councillor considered to be the front runner for mayor in the upcoming October election, Rob Ford, voted against the endorsement.

2) Police in British Columbia found a field with 60,000 opium poppies. Do you think this is a one-time event or the start of a new trend?

  1. 1) good news!

    2) Reminds me of this article: US OH: Village On Drug-War Front. At the end of the article it quotes Scott Duff, special agent supervisor for the state's Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation, "I don't think they're going away." Who? Mexican cartels surreptitiously planting 22,000 plants. Supposedly they planted (or at least found) 5,000 plants in 2008.

    Meanwhile, people with law degrees, 4-year-degrees, MA's and PhD's continue to not be able to read simple graphs of the murder rates, incarceration rates, budgetary explosions and implosions, or able to read the proverbial writing on the wall! As they cow and kowtow to all 5 of the prohibitionist mindsets.
