To The Protesters

A topic close to my heart is anything about cannabis and other items related to cannabis. There are several people out there in Canada that has been protesting about the legalization of cannabis. The protests have been going on for a long time, possibly ever since the Canadian prohibition of cannabis in 1923. However, if Justin Trudeau’s words are spoken true, then legalization is very close in the future. However, there has been several cannabis protests cropping up in cities across Canada. Some people has been wondering why, and I’ll explain one of the views of this. Some people feel that the government in Canada should make legalization of cannabis a high priority because of the medical effects cannabis brings to people with cancer, multiple sclerosis, nausea, poor appetite, and seizure disorders. Many people are suffering without the relief cannabis brings to them simply because it’s currently recreationally illegal and there are so few doctors that can legally prescribe it. That is one of the reasons for the protests.

I believe that it should be a priority for the government, but I also feel that people should avoid protesting about it since Justin Trudeau has already promised them all what they wanted, only that it needs to wait until Spring 2017. I think that is a relatively fast time frame especially for huge political decisions like the legalization of cannabis. Justin Trudeau and his party need to design a list of regulations that is reasonable and approved by certain people, and he also needs to have proper medical research that confirms the relief and improvement described by most cannabis patients. Justin Trudeau and his party also need to establish that it can be safely regulated among average people, such as a couple of grams per week, or something like that. The reason they’re doing this is not that they want the medical patients to suffer, but because they want to be responsible and not cause accidents like mass car crashes only because they overlooked one detail such as driving impairment. It’s serious business to run a country and not let it go into chaos.

I do admit that I have participated in cannabis protests in the past, so I’m not saying you shouldn’t join protests at all, but I do mean that it should be less loud and violent. The government is listening to you guys, after all. Have a protest on the sidewalk instead of blocking traffic. However, that’s just my opinion, and I would never judge you if you think it’s necessary to pull off a significant and loud protest to ensure the legalization of cannabis. In fact, I might join you!
