The tone of your editorial, Petition All Smoked Out (The Daily News, Dec. 7) is disturbing and disappointing. Sensible B.C. isn’t attempting to change some trivial law.
Cannabis (marijuana) prohibition, historically, didn’t originate from a process of democracy in action, but rather greed, racism and fraud.
It perpetuates because people in positions of trust use lies, half-truths and propaganda within a government-subsidized system of discrimination.
The act of caging humans for using a relatively safe God-given plant is vile and ignorant.
The day will arrive when the injustice is over and people look back and wonder how cannabis prohibition ever started and why such a farce lasted so long.
