Well Ontario, and especially the old manufacturing belt, is fast becoming a depressed area.  I'm not surprised that people are turning to crime just to make ends meet.  It's sad that Canada's economic might is all resource based, we are losing our manufacturing and industrial capacity much as the US did.

Hamilton, I think your a little late to the game on that one, industry died there sometime only slightly after I was born.

I think that judge and the rest of his generation should seriously consider dying en masse, so that we will have fewer old, cranky, white, authoritarian conservative assholes ruining people's lives over growing a farking plant.

It's a plant, people.  It should never have been made illegal to start with.
Now a little history lesson for you...  Why was the entire plant made illegal?  For a start, the Diesel engine was made to run on hemp oil.  The fossil fuel industry had a problem with that.  "We can't have people using a resource like a plant to fuel the entire trucking fleet of the world!!"
Next, there's textiles and paper.  Both of which can be made using hemp.  Evidently, we can't adversely affect those industries either.

The fact that people like to smoke it, or eat it, seems like a convenient excuse to keep it illegal.  But considering there is absolutely no proof that it's harmful at all, certainly not as harmful as cigarrettes and alcohol, it doesn't seem like a "good" excuse to keep it illegal.

In my particular area? Easily at 10 already; making weed legal would turn that shiat to 11 over night. One of the neighbors believed he was a "connoisseur" of weed growing; until his landlord evicted him; when the sheriff went to serve him the eviction notice he could smell the weed in the 5 gallon buckets he had on top of his trailer. Didn't take long before Chef Ramsey got his ass thrown in jail because its not legal yet.

/lets see what else, two months ago a travel trailer burned down; guy claimed a candle fell over during one of the T-storms we get; turns out the trailer wasn't fully burned to the ground, rather all his meth making stuff was quite visable and not destroyed.
//jeez I really need to start writing down all this stuff, being a rental property owner this is pretty much daily shiat for me, for example a month ago two of my former tenants decided to move out of a house; they told me they were moving out; I turn up to start cleaning and notice they re-arranged my house into a "Grow house". So the Sheriff comes over to inspect the place; bring along a few detectives to snatch up the 20 or so MATURE plants they left in a garbage bag; along with the light fixtures and everything else. Three days after they come back to scrub down the house and put everything back the way it was; attempting to hide the fact it was a piss poor grow house, even gave me $180 on top of that because he spilled "industrial cleaner" on the floor.
///court case is still being put together, apparently he did a piss poor job of growing the FIRST TIME HE WAS ARRESTED!
////I was pissed when the house was trashed, not so much after they did a nice job cleaning it

But here's the point: like the rest of us, they are operating inside the same framework, though from different sides. You know the rules, and so do I. (heh)

The rules of the framework are not secrets. Within those rules, if a person is convicted of A he can reasonably expect B, C, and D to happen.

I'm not saying the rules are all just or proper; I'm saying that - like science - not believing in them doesn't make them go away.

Wouldn't making weed legal mean that these folks could just grow it outside instead of in a clandestine indoor grow operation? The 'stupid factor' would probably go down. Also, this has nothing to do with meth so don't know why you are making that connection.

Next, there's textiles and paper.  Both of which can be made using hemp.  Evidently, we can't adversely affect those industries either.


As history lessons go, that was about two notches down in accuracy and credibility from the banking industry being controlled by a centuries-old jewish conspiracy.  Hemp is a mediocre textile material even by 1800s standards in both quality of product and ease of production terms, it doesn't bleach very well so for paper it's only good for coarse stuff (and the oil can mess with processing, adding steps here and there) and as an auto fuel the production efficiency is so terrible that even in the '80s you'd probably be better off just sticking a set of solar panels in the same area you were going to make a hemp field and charge a massive electric battery in a truck bed or something.  Hemp is next to useless as an industrial material, frankly.  Not completely, it has some uses as a coarse textile, but mostly it was phased out of everything because it's not very good for anything besides the marijuana varieties being a drug (for reference, smokable plants are  completely useless industrially).

It got caught in the drug war because the schedule 1 list was an ad-hoc list where they just named off every recreational drug they could think of, then bumped the ones in current use in medicine to 2, then removed alcohol because it would cause the USSC to nix the entire body of drug law and tobacco because they'd have had to arrest the entire congress.

It's really not any more complex than that.  No conspiracy involved, just some reactionary idiots pulling stupid bullshiat that got excessively stupid even by US policy standards, like the Red Scare or TSA airport security or whatever.  Politicians had to be seen doing something about that there drug problem, so they overshot the mark and picked up a lot of mild intoxicants and completely healthy hallucinogenics (LSD is less harmful in health terms than Coffee once the actual high wears off) in the process.

I think at 62 I would grow pot, because if you go to jail at that point who really cares when weighed against the possibility of making some really good money. I would need to get someone else to do the dealing.

I am pretty sure pot will be legal everywhere by the time I am 62.

*Shrug*
The judge seemed pretty agreeable to me.  His job is to render judgment based on the laws that are written, he can't simply dismiss all pot-growing charges because he doesn't feel like enforcing them.  But he let the guy off without any further punishment even though he had been caught before.  That doesn't exactly seem like tyrannical authoritarian behavior to me.  It sounds like a lenient guy who still needs to do his job.

Haven't watched that show yet.

I plan to buy a sailing yacht when I retire and I thought about running drugs. I am so far just taking the steps to afford a yacht and I will think about drug running after I buy the yacht.

240 marijuana plants

Someone who has that type of resources vested to grow that many plants (and was caught with 240 of them), obviously is doing very well at what he does. Unless of course this is a case of retarded policemen who think 2 plants == 240 plants based off of how many buds they have on them.

These days its more like under 100s of LEDs, so much cheaper and you can get surround light -  the difficulty/trick is not letting it grow too high (mesh - but big enough to let the branches through) then have LEDs on all sides too -> FAT!

More lights, less money, more weed and (until the evil moment of cutting, when it becomes weights), only ONE plant.
