    all this to protect the interest of LP's and their liberal elite, they are producing medicine to help the sick. Congratulations Trudeau, I'm sure your father would be proud. Technically Dispensaries are not per say illegal they are not regulated and licensed, Under the Allard trial the Supreme Court decision was that dispensaries are safe and viable alternative to LP's, this decision gives dispensaries a standing in law, and although our government rewrote the MMPR Program in accordance to the court decision, and created the ACMPR program, they refused to license and regulate the dispensaries, and left the Courts Injunction standing for the MMAR patients. By doing this, it give the liberal insiders who have invested heavenly in LP's a chance of cornering the market by eliminating the competition. This will cost Canadians huge as these arrests will eventually end up at the Supreme Court who have already ruled on these and the Government failed to act on their recommendation and their decision. http://cas-cdc-www02.cas-satj.gc.ca/rss/T-2030-13%20reasons%2024-02-2016%20(ENG).pdf

      In the meantime, prohibition grinds its way on towards legalization. And someone is out a million dollars worth of cannabis products (even if that is valued at black market prices). When will it end? Set my people free! And bring those prices down while you're at it.
