Justin Trudeau's pot ponzi scheme comes to light

Brian LilleyArchive

Justin Trudeau says he wants to make pot legal to keep it away from kids and get the mob out of that business. Is that really what is going on?

Watch as I have a laugh at Trudeau's assessment, point to the holes in his theory and tell you what this is really all about.

Kelly is probably one of the entitled.
Can’t do anything for herself. If there were no restaurants around, she’d starve to death.
Couldn’t boil water if her life depended on it. Everything given to her by mom and pop.
That’s why she needs government controls on everything.

Francis Peori well said, too many idiots are happy to sell their freedom for government rule.

Kelly Weber how is stopping at a Timmies more convenient than making it yourself?
commented 2016-12-16 01:35:17 -0500
Kelly Weber i know many who smoke weed as well , and some have mental health problems from it and i have anxiety from it. It is not harmless and it makes some people downright lazy. And even when i did smoke it i knew i did not want it to be sold by the government as it would cost tens times as much, it is cheaper to buy from a street dealer in Colorado as well.

Kelly Weber says “I could make my own coffee in the morning for 10 cents but do I? No I go to Tims and pay 2$.” The thing is, is that if Tims was owned and operated by the government your $2.00 cup of coffee would be $20.00, you would be lucky to get it the same day, they would still screw up your order, only to have you fill out a 20 page form to correct it. I suspect you and the “tons” of people you know who smoke weed are somehow attached to the teat of government as either employees or through other handouts paid for by the likes of Bill Elder. If his life is “fucked up” it’s because of people like you who think the government is “here to help us”. Why don’t you emigrate to Cuba or Venezuela, they seem like the paradise you may dream of.

Sorry you’re life is so fucked up Bill, must really suck to be you. You might want to reevaluate the amount of time you spend on here bitching and whining.

Kelly Weber commented – “You people make make me laugh.”

And you cardboard brained fake progs keep me in stitches as well – you think you invented pot smoking and progessivism > Yeah you got all the answers, just add more and more government that’s the solution – that’s why things are so fucked up for average people with “jobs, families and own their own homes”.
commented 2016-12-15 20:19:37 -0500
It’s a typical Librano cluster-frig, essentially all they are doing is expanding their restrictive medical pot monopoly to non prescription with stipulations and “near buzz”™ pogy weed for the bong-hit kiddies.

The real solution to satisfy libertarian ethics and the puffing public would have been to decriminalize personal use possession then back out of the way and allow private sales of seeds and small quantities of natural (non hybridized) pot.

But NOOOOOO, the feds want a supply and retail monopoly from production to end user – price fixing, potency fixing and anyone who wants to grow a small quantity for personal use or those caught with joints not nearing government brand marks, will face jail.

It’s not decriminalizing pot, it’s criminalizing open source use – and with all things librano it’s all about running a consumer monopoly

You people make make me laugh. You have no clue what you’re talking about. People that want to smoke weed are already smoking it. I know tons of people that smoke weed. They all have good jobs, families and own their own homes. They get up every day and go to work like everyone else. You’d be surprised what people will pay for convenience and knowing what they are getting. I could make my own coffee in the morning for 10 cents but do I? No I go to Tims and pay 2$.

I agree with everything Brian says, except for one point, and the overall theme. I know, that’s pretty thick, but whatcha gonna do? He has a problem with the age being 18 or 19 instead of 25 like it was recommended. But what he’s got wrong is the supposition that making it 25 will actually stop the 19 to 25 year old demographic from getting it anyways, from their local cocaine dealers. Which is something that making it legal for 19 year olds will hopefully have a positive effect on. As in; who would you rather the 19 to 25 year old demographic go to to buy their pot from? I’d rather they go to a store, where they know (or at least have an idea of) how potent the stuff is and whatever other regulations are going to eventually apply. Instead of going to Norbert the Narc, who (at best) is going to sell them pot with unknown potency and at worst try to get them on cocaine or heroin or fentanyl. And is the embodiment of the criminal element everyone is saying we want to eliminate. But to just assume that making it illegal for that demographic is going to have any kind of effect at all on the very issue he’s got a problem with is kinda looking at it with blinders on. And, the overall theme of criminal gang involvement, it’s kinda right and it’s kinda wrong. The gangs will have to shift their activities to something else, likely making them more visible and easily stopped. I just don’t see a downside to legalization as far as that’s concerned. The problem is Trudeau, as usual. It takes a Liberal to take a good idea and fuck it up.

Meanwhile 8 recreational pot stores opened up in Montreal today

Justin the overgrown teenager thinks that with the power he has aquired he can just take over the turf of the Montreal Rock Machine….Justin….you never learned the mean streets of Montreal….you were simply part of the diner theatre wannabees.

Follow the money, who owns the grow ops which will proliferate once pot is legalized?
Yes, the government will ostensibly rake in big tax dollars but who owns the farms?
Certainly not Joe Farmer!
Big corporations with deep pockets and rich investors (the rich and infamous) with political pull will benefit the most.
Now, we have people smuggling cigarettes because the legal ones are way too expensive.
What do you think will happen with legalized pot?
Will the “mob” not have illegal farms raising this cash crop and selling it cheaper than the legal stuff?
How about Mr. and Mrs. everybody who own a small patch of land near their homes?
If pot is legal, then can they not cultivate it in their back yards? If so, who will police these miscreants . . . and who will pay for policing?
Even my grandmother could cultivate tobacco in her back yard in the sixties in eastern Ontario.
Seems our super inteligent numbskulls may have missed some points!

commented 2016-12-15 16:13:12 -0500
Why would anybody want to start paying tax on their pot in the first place ?
commented 2016-12-15 15:18:21 -0500
has anyone else noticed that since the libs election last year whenever there is a controversy such as the electoral reform or cash for access suddenly legal weed gets brought to the forefront by the MSM?
commented 2016-12-15 15:13:53 -0500
hmmm…marijuana is harmless and never hurt anyone…the big argument for legalization…at least with alcohol you can detect it on the worksite…i got to spend a week on wcb because of a stoner…but i guess i wasn’t really hurt.
commented 2016-12-15 15:13:47 -0500
I’ll bet the police will be out in force to snag anyone under the influence of pot, whether it’s legal or not. Just like they are with alcohol. MADD will make sure of it.
commented 2016-12-15 14:38:16 -0500
This is the ONLY thing that I agree with the Trudeau government on… however, I’m sure he’ll royal screw up the process.
Marijuana is a harmless plant and its recreational use should have been legalized years ago. Anyone who is adamant that it stay illegal knows nothing about the plant.
If anything, alcohol should be illegal and marijuana should be legalized.

Trudeau is not satisfied with importing Rotten Flesh, now he is going to start selling Weed to the Mob.

When are you going to take over the Flesh Trade, Justin?
commented 2016-12-15 13:30:52 -0500
I agree Daryl! We need to support the local markets and trades because our government is trying to destroy them. And as far as pot goes, anyone that was foolish enough to register with the government for a licence, is going to be subject to intrusion into their lives. The same type of control and intrusion that the liberal’s fire arms attack has brought. I told my son and his friends that I would never let the government know anything about me. They are playing right into the liberal schemes.
commented 2016-12-15 12:48:11 -0500
You are right, Deborah! When the NDPiggers took over BC years back they tried to implement “anti-blackmarket” scheme to crack down on hippie co-ops and farmers trading goods – but instead of halting or even slowing the “black-market” ( another term used for BARTER) even more people got involved – until the government threw up it’s hands in despair – well it’s time we all take part in despairing both federal & provincial governments – in retaliation to their constant & foolish spending of OUR $$$$$!
We have the power to make governments go bankrupt!! Let’s use it – before we can’t afford to.

Not that I care about legalized pot!!!
Yep the Liberal cartel is going to stamp out organized crime. Perhaps it should start with pay for play or abolishing the Trudeau foundation an elitist slush fund for failed Liberal hacks and political washouts. The Liberal party of Canada has been an organized crime syndicate for decades. Ad scam comes to mind. Then we have the Liberals in Ontario influence peddling, cancelled gas plants, Orange ambulance, Hydro metering, the sale of Hydro. Organized criminal activity has been the cornerstone of Liberal politics. Quebec construction industry another Liberal scam of theft and corruption on a grand scale. The grant given to the Hell’s Angels to build a club house. Now we have the fake green policies that steal from middle class families through taxation to fund Liberal select corporate welfare. Yep he’s talking it up for the middle class. More like he’s lining up his criminal friends for tax payer kick backs. Then the big one of all the CBC funded through forced taxation to an organization that doesn’t report the news but fabricates it to the benefit of the Liberal party of Canada. Then there is the financial support to the terrorist organization Hamas. Don’t be worried they’ll keep tabs of where the money is spent. Likely the same oversight they had on the moving expenses of the PM’s staff as in Gerald Butts the fraudster protected by our intellectual midget Justin Trudeau. Yep the Liberal party is going to stamp out organized crime. Is the Liberal party of Canada closing shop? Not likely Justin Trudeau is for sale and it’s business as usual for the Liberal Cartel. Canada is back alright or should he have said the Liberals Cartel is back?

This will not result in a win fall of increased revenue as Trudeau claims. In Colorado in 2014 and 2015, nearly $6 million in pot revenues were distributed to local governments. But the cost of increased law enforcement, drugged-driving incidents, fatal crashes, loss of productivity and a huge spike in gang-related crime really brings into question the cost-benefit of those dollars.
Teen drug-related school expulsions have increased. And the selling point, that legalizing marijuana would solve the prisons filled with minor drug offenders has not panned out.
In addition, Colorado has seen a substantial increase in teen use & a spike in “edibles” related emergency room admissions.
I agree with Canadian Mongrel. This stinks of Trudeau itching to set up a marijuana cartel, just like their Liberal, dairy and poultry cartel. Sold as a social enrichment, but in reality another Liberal scheme to benefit their connected lefty cronies. Pay to play, baby. Pay to play, the Librano way.
commented 2016-12-15 11:29:44 -0500
The criminal world isn’t going to go away because pot is regulated. They have manged to survive alcohol prohibition and the lifting of prohibition and the same arguments were offered then. The underworld has been thriving so long that like the liberal government they feel entitled to their entitlements and will successfully avoid any threat to their business by either lowering the price or providing a better grade. This is as Brian suggested just a way for the government to get a piece of the action.
commented 2016-12-15 11:21:50 -0500
Sounds like more bandit stuff coming out of QUE.
commented 2016-12-15 11:02:13 -0500
Tobacco, alcohol, cheese, milk, eggs, hydrocarbon energy…all regulated and taxed. Next up: salt, sugar, vegetable oils based on nebulous nutrition statistical models. Then agricultural products like beef, pork, mutton, and even rice because they are killing the planet through methane production according to another nebulous statistical model of the environment.

Of course marajuana is to be taxed and regulated because the air we breath and the nutrients we need already are, along with the few pleasures that give comfort.
