Buzzz,

I think that those in the NDP party who don't support Jack's views on this issue. Are people who are afraid of the type of negative media they can get. I'm glad Jack is speaking up and not afraid to say what he say's. Its better then the conservatives and liberals who have allot of "secret ideas" that they keep away from the public. At least Jack is taking a strong stand and speaking about his true real views on this issue.

Kevin

Indeed, we're not going to censor you unless you're abusing your posting privileges. Trying to turn the vive forums into your own personal soapbox may lead to us taking action. Again, the legalisation issue is NOT the focus of this site, and posting too much about it may be considered inappropriate and off-topic. I trust you'll stay within the bounds of our FAQ and of good taste.

I thought this article would be of interest to some so I've included the link. It surely speaks to the gravity of the situation.

Cannabis leaflet has NDP smoking mad Glenn Bohn, With A File By Ian Mulgrew Vancouver Sun Tuesday, June 08, 2004 Federal New Democrats are all steamed up over a B.C. Marijuana party leaflet that has an image of a big cannabis leaf behind the NDP's official campaign photograph of NDP leader Jack Layton. The envelope-sized leaflet and larger posters and leaflets -- coloured mostly in orange, the NDP's traditional colour -- criticize the Liberal and Conservative policies on the legalization of marijuana and urge Canadians to "Vote NDP!" At the bottom of the leaflet, under an NDP logo, is a line in a smaller type face reading: "this poster sponsored by bcmarijuanaparty.ca" and "pot-tv.net." NDP federal secretary Chris Watson said he asked marijuana decriminalization advocate Marc Emery on Monday to stop distributing those materials, but Emery refused. "We just don't like it when anyone distributes something that is made to look like it came from us," Watson said during an interview from Ottawa. Watson said the NDP images are likely registered and subject to copyright law, and he has referred the issue to an NDP lawyer for advice. "The NDP are threatening to sue me," fumed Emery, leader of the Marijuana party and political spokesman for the broad cannabis culture constituency -- an amalgam of hot-house horticulturalists, plant nutrient and grow-equipment suppliers, medical marijuana boosters and the vast numbers of recreational dopers. Emery, the self-described "Prince of Pot," said he doesn't understand on what basis the NDP would take legal action. "The sponsorship of the literature is pretty clear, it is cleverly designed, the quotes are all verifiable, the picture of Jack is handsome," Emery stated in a website posting. During an interview, Emery said about 35,000 leaflets have been distributed and he is planning to print another 50,000. The NDP election platform includes a pledge that an NDP government would be "introducing a non-punitive, rule-based approach to adult marijuana use with a major emphasis on prevention, education and health promotion, while seeing that provinces have the resources to prevent and detect impaired driving more effectively." © The Vancouver Sun 2004 Connecting The Cannabis Community
