OPEN LETTER TO OUR GOVERNMENT ...
To the Government of Canada and to Whom Ever Else it May Concern:
I don’t want your sympathy.
Since I began my journey in Global Drug Law Reform almost thirty years ago, I have been confronted with numerous undeniable obstacles.
The latest being the issue the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) has brought forth, of NO ONE being “allowed” to be a Driver OR Passenger in ANY vehicle in Canada with anyone who has consumed cannabis, once the new laws regarding legalization of cannabis have passed.
Can I ask one question?
How am I to get to my WEEKLY Medical Appointments, let alone my daily activities if the person transporting ME is NOT ALLOWED to be around my MEDICINE?
I feel the work I have done for DECADES is being completely ignored.
What about studies I have regarding “Cannabis and Driving”?
The studies I have do NOT mention carnage or DEATH as possible outcomes.
I have been fighting for the Rights of people for many years who consume these illicit AND licit substances - and will not stop until sanity prevails!
All I have ever asked this World for is FREEDOM.
Freedom of CHOICE!
