medical marijuana doctorHealth Canada oversees the country’s medical marijuana program. Health Canada is planning an upcoming anti-marijuana campaign targeting Canada’s youth. Health Canada asked leading doctor organizations if they would join the campaign, inviting Canadian doctors to ‘co-brand and provide expert advice’ to the program. Canadian doctors decided to not participate in the reefer madness, politically fueled campaign. Per CBC:

“The educational campaign has now become a political football on Canada’s marijuana policy,” said a joint statement released Saturday by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), Canadian Medical Association (CMA) and Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

“We did not, and do not, support or endorse any political messaging or political advertising on this issue.”

Marijuana policy has become a high profile political issue in Canada recently. The Conservative Party recently released an ad attacking Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau. A flyer distributed by the Conservative Party stated that Mr. Trudeau’s ‘first order of business is to make marijuana more accessible to minors’ and that Liberals ‘want to make buying marijuana a normal, everyday activity for young Canadians.’ It’s that type of propaganda that Canadian doctors passed on, and rightfully so.

      They don’t give a fuck. At least not here in BC. They only want it legal so they can have all the profits and I am sure they will still lock up the poor people who just grow there own. Fuck the Canadian government pieces of shit every single one of them

        Good thing most Canadians are not like their government, eh?

          Very good thing. I don’t know many Canadians who want it legal after they saw how the industry took over in the states. But every person in the world should want it decriminalized and free for everyone

            The industry has taken over in the states? I’m not sure I would agree with that.

            As for wanting bud to be free, you’re thinking about how things are in heaven, not here on Earth.

    This is because they are not afraid to admit support for marijuana. Because they know the anti marijuana cronies are full of lies and faults propaganda .
