An Open Letter to Cannabis Activists
While many of you don't realize it now, today, Friday July 29th, 2005, will go down in history as one of the most important moments in the history of cannabis liberation, nay, one of the most important days the history of Canada.
When one of us is threatened with extradition to the U.S.A. or in this case, three of us, ALL of us are threatened.
Less than twelve hours after the disgusting violation of our culture's focal point -- the British Columbia Marijuana Party -- people from all walks of life, many of whom have never even smoked cannabis, are coming to the aid of the Party. The gross violation of Canadian Sovereignty has awakened the giant and this will have major political repercussions for years to come.
To be honest, I long expected this day, and prepared for it as best I can. Watching the smug words of Jeff Sullivan and Rodney Benson in their barely concealed glee have only galvanized my resolve that this is the moment that we need to Stand Up for Cannabis, indeed, Stand Up for Canada.
Keep the faith. Don't give up. This is our finest hour!
Standing on guard for thee,
Tim Meehan Ottawa,
+1 613 230 1937
Candidate, Ottawa South, Marijuana Party of Canada
I hadn't realized until just now that our friend Tim Meehan has declared his candidacy for office in South Ottawa. If you live in his district, you couldn't elect a better representative.
