Listen up

A campaign has started across B.C. called Sensible B.C. to get marijuana decriminalized in B.C.


Listen up people, a golden opportunity is knocking on our door.

A campaign has started across B.C. called Sensible B.C. – its objective being a marijuana referendum (much like the HST) – to get marijuana decriminalized in B.C..

We must take this chance for change seriously.

I know that I do, and I urge you to do the same.

Think of all the reasons – millions in redirected and generated revenue (tax dollars), its medicinal properties, its commercial possibilities (endless).

Does anyone really think that I and countless more are criminals because I/we smoke weed?

The law does.

Let’s force the government into letting the people vote for sensible cannabis laws.

Myself and others will be canvasing for your signature starting Sept. 9, 2013.

We have 90 days to get 10 per cent of the registered voters.

We need your “John Henry” now and we need your “Yes” vote on next year’s referendum.

It can be done.

It’s time for some common sense to prevail.

Let’s answer the knock and open the door.

For more info please contact me.
