If you ever wanted to buy an original piece of my artwork, this would be your chance. To help support CSSDP I have given a donation of some of my older artwork for sale in a silent auction and art show that they’re holding tomorrow. I make a small commission (25%) and they get the rest of the money to help keep their organization afloat.
Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy is an organization that aims to end the prohibition on drugs because of the harmful effects that prohibition has on Canadians. The effects of the legalization of illegal drugs such as marijiuana would include saving the taxpayers money on cops to enforce drug policies, as well as helping to eliminate gang violence by putting gangs out of business. By introducing government standards for the quality of drugs, the government could reduce the amount of harm of drugs have on users. If you look at nations such as Holland, there is also a precedent that when a nation legalizes drugs- drug use actually goes down amongst citizens. Again, good for taxpayers who want to spend less money on health and mental health care. A government monopoly on currently illicit substances, much in the same way that Ontario has the LCBO, would also bring in a lot of revenue for our so-called government.
I hear that Harper spent $100 a piece on pens for the leaders at the G20 conference. He could fund that with a little legal drug money. If you look at the cold hard facts, it would be hard to find a logical reason not to end the prohibition.
Smokers and midnight tokers get out there and support some people that are campaigning for the legalization of drugs. And for all you dissidents, they’re be lots of people on hand for lively discussion on the topic.
