Josh Sigurdson reports from the mountains of British Columbia, Canada on the rollout of marijuana legalization as Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government maps out their cannabis regulatory complex.
We talk to Chad Jackett of Grass Roots Medicinal, Liberty Farms and The Cannabis Growers of Canada on his farm North of Whistler about being self sustainable, the quality of privately grown cannabis versus the LP product, how cannabis gets from farm, to dispensary, to the table and of course the situation with legalization.
Chad, being a true free market business owner has worked hard to provide an incredible product which helps countless people in need of medical marijuana. With the new legalization agenda, small businesses will be unable to compete in the market in most cases due to heavy government regulation, taxation and therefor monopolization of a few major corporations, most notably those entrenched in Big Pharma.
Legalization is simply government taking away a right and giving it back at a price and that price is regulation and theft.
Well, speaking of those regulations, they include a possible 14 year prison sentence for transfering buds. For selling to someone under 18. For growing or carrying more than the legal limit. That isn’t an end to prohibition, that’s prohibition times ten with a government revenue complex.
The taxes are $1 a gram and the quality of government, LP cannabis is terrible. Not to mention irradiated.
From Chad, we go to Grass Roots Medicinal in Squamish, British Columbia to talk with Molly Schneider about her experience working in the business, how important a free and open market is in the cannabis industry and the patients she gets to help in her day to day work.
This is an extensive issue that doesn’t just stop at “legalization” but cannot be settled on for less. No one should ever settle for less than true freedom. Freedom of the individual. The freedom of individual demand. Not the coercion of the state as the public apathetically bows down with the chains they revere accepting further state servitude and propaganda.
Stay tuned as we continue to cover this issue!
