Will medical marijuana gardens survive?

Will medical marijuana gardens survive?: They may call it weed, but what grows in Laurie
MacEachern’s plot is more like the lush fields of
corn near her rural home, southeast of Ottawa,
than the goldenrod and wild parsnip in the ditch.

Why is this government business ?

You can grow your own tobacco, you can make your own wine and beer — there are other somewhat-controlled substances where you can produce your own,” Zaid said. “Where patients can’t access the medicine that they require, they have to be able to produce their own.”
Many Canadians apparently agree.

The Most Dangerous Socialist in History Antonio Gramsci

The Most Dangerous Socialist in History | The Stream: It may be that the most effective Marxist was an Italian philosopher, journalist and Communist who spent the last years of his life in Mussolini’s prisons.

Antonio Gramsci had no blood on his hands. He signed no execution orders. He was even considered somewhat of a heretic by more mainstream Marxists of his time. Gramsci’s ideas, however, help explain why so many of the West’s cultural institutions today are rotten with leftist ideas and rhetoric.

Rule of law, for instance, is no longer understood as embodying a commitment to equality before the law and non-arbitrary behavior. Instead, it is “unmasked” as a tool for denying justice to various minorities. The American Revolution is not a principled defense of ancient liberties against burgeoning tyranny; instead it’s an effort by wealthy white Colonials to maintain their privileges. Civility is dismissed as something which constrains people from expressing their outrage against injustice. Even the English language is revealed to embody ancient “patriarchal” oppression against women.

(The father of today's political correctness epidemic ?)

Why the equal before the law ,a natural right, should be enforced worldwide

Clinton nonprofits have raised $2 BILLION, according to The New York Post, and big chunks of that cash come from foreign governments and business interests — including ortion donations made by shady overseas accounts while Clinton was secretary of state.

When groups can exempt themselves from normal rules of market engagement- corruption and perverse distortions  are an natural outcome . Equal treatment is right and just.  Equal treatment before the law can increase efficiency and rebuild trust in the failing public system. ( A reboot of the by force operating system is in order?)
