    One-Click Marijuana Shopping for Sick Canadians

    Well, i was browsing through the news today online and found this article....i live very close to canada in Michigan and now i think i know why i cant find my friends aand havnt been able to for a while:

    By Robert Melnbardis

    MONTREAL (Reuters) - Canadian activists for the medicinal use of marijuana celebrated a court victory on Thursday by launching an Internet site offering home delivery of cannabis for seriously ill people.


    Saying it would even offer tax deductions for orders, the Marijuana Party Foundation took the unprecedented step after Quebec Superior Court Judge Gilles Cadieux stopped the drug-trafficking trial of two volunteers from Compassion Club of Montreal, a group that provides marijuana for medicinal purposes.


    In his long-awaited decision, Judge Cadieux agreed that the pair, Marc-Boris St-Maurice, 33, and Alexandre Neron, 22, had planned to sell marijuana when they were arrested almost three years ago. But the judge noted that it was unconstitutional to deny patients access to the drug.


    Judge Cadieux said he did not have the authority to rule on the constitutionality of Canada's marijuana laws. Prosecutors did not indicate whether they would appeal his decision.


    Earlier this month, a parliamentary committee urged the Canadian government to relax its laws on possession of marijuana. The committee on the nonmedical use of drugs said marijuana should be decriminalized, but not legalized, an idea U.S. drug control officials quickly condemned.


    HOME DELIVERY OF MARIJUANA


    Elated by Judge Cadieux's decision, St-Maurice hailed it as both a moral and legal victory. The Marijuana Party Foundation, operated by the federally chartered Marijuana Party, reacted to the ruling by immediately launching a Web Site offering to dispense therapeutic cannabis.


    The Web Site, www.marijuanahomedelivery.ca, offers two formats of "highest quality therapeutic cannabis" with a THC content of 8 percent or more. A two-gram package sells for C$30 ($19) while Internet surfers can order a 10 gram shipment for C$120.


    "You are not contributing to organized crime. All revenues raised from our service go to advance efforts to end cannabis prohibition," the organization promises on its Web Site.


    Those wishing to order marijuana via the Web Site must be Canadian citizens residing in Canada, 18 years of age, and provide a doctor's diagnosis of an illness known to be treatable or alleviated through the use of cannabis.

    "It's an online Compassion Club to serve all Canadians who would have a need for medical marijuana," St-Maurice told Reuters.


    MEDICINAL CANNABIS LEGAL IN CANADA


    Canadian law allows access to medical marijuana for a certain patients. Canada's Office of Cannabis Medical Access oversees regulations brought down in July 2001 that allow marijuana use by people suffering from grave and debilitating illnesses.


    Applicants include those who have a terminal illness or serious medical conditions such as multiple sclerosis, spinal cord disease, cancer or AIDS (news - web sites)/HIV (news - web sites) infection.


    The Canadian government is working on the cultivation of a safe and standardized supply of marijuana for use as a medical treatment.


    But that supply is not yet available and those seeking medicinal marijuana must turn elsewhere for access to the drug. Often, they must apply for a license to grow the marijuana themselves or seek it on the street.


    St-Maurice said the Marijuana Party Foundation does not have permits from the Canadian government allowing the group to sell cannabis online. Its Internet initiative also does not have the consent of the Canadian Medical Association or other professional groups.


    But St-Maurice said those hurdles will not prevent the Web Site from taking orders and shipping marijuana.

    "In January, we'll be starting to offer tax deductions for the marijuana we sell online," he said.

    All of a sudden, I'm not feeling too good and need move to Canada.

    Glaucoma runs in my family... i'm just developing it very early on...

    Any good recommendations on doctors up there our Canadaian AO friends?
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    While the stinkweed debate continues here, there have already been rumblings from George Bush Jr and his gang of religious zealots regarding trade restrictions if Canada goes ahead with the decriminalization of marijuana possession. If someone wants to fire up a spliff, that's their business, and their money, but using my taxes to hand out free needles to some junkie so he/she can make tracks up their arm and around their ankles is bullshit.

    i agree to an extent, people shouldnt do heroin, it feels WAY to good from what i hear and its to addictive, i draw my line at Morphine and Opium, i dont agree with Acid much either because some people react BADLY to it, my best friend doesnt, hes fine with it, but i wouldnt do it, i dont even smoke pot, i just like opiates below heroin. this is a touchy subject though and i know people have different opinions that arent always wrong, i just think that if i wanna get some Vicodin i should be able to. i think they should open up buildings where you go in, and do lil tests, like for example, if i wanted Vicodin, id go in, be in a controlled environment, and i react good to it and after some specialists see that, have a stamp on your license or something and then you show it at the pharmacy and you can buy it, same with pot, if you dont react bad and act in a posotive way, get a stamp and you can get it, i think that would be cool, because then people that are harmless like me with it wouldnt have a bad reputation...just throwing ideas around but im open to opinions.

    Exactly!!....Ive wondered for years why the powers that be dont relax pot laws,tax it and use the proceeds to fund the fight against truly dangerous drugs....Heroin-Crack-Meth...When was the last time anyone heard of a guy getting gooned on weed and robbing a liquor store?......Thats right,never!!.......Those guys are looking for a pie...

    Now the big thing is that drug profits finance terrorism......Fine.....No arguement from me,but once again,why not tax it and help fund the battle against terrorists.Deprive the zealots the use of weed $$$ and use it against them........

    Nah!!.......Thats too simple.........

    Its very strange Bush says that Canada should not decrimalize pot and that they should crack down on the pot users, but turns around and gives speed to the airforce pilots before they take off .
    The news programs were carring this latest bit of news because the two pilots that dropped the bomb on the Canadians were stoned on speed which has been proven to cause states of delusion and paranoia the pilots want the airforce to take at least some of the blame for what happened to the Canadians.
    Military officials said no way and have left these guys hanging in the breeze. Both pilots could get 64 years for this.
    What I dont get is how can Bush say pots bad when his military gives away speed to pilots and you can bet the farm that the speed the airforce gets is a hell of a lot better than on the street.
    I do not agree to using drugs but I have read the medical papers on pot and the affect it has on sick people. I have also read the papers on speed and quess what I would rather they gave out pot than speed. The amount of accidents on pot against speed, speed wins hands down it causes people to drive way over speed levels where as pot people drive under the speed level.
    Sorry about my ranting but when you hear Bush bitching about a little pot given to very sick folk verses speed given to fighter pilots it makes me really mad!!!
    No good deed goes unpunished.
