I told you in a previous blog how these pot shop owners/criminals would be on TV whining about getting busted. I predicted they would tell you how they were helping so many people. Well, today they proved me accurate when the Nanaimo RCMP shut down three pot shops. Trees, Nature’s Society, and Phoenix Pain Management Society
Watching the store owners/criminals on TV was pathetic. The one that really tugged at my heart strings, NOT, was the criminal/jerk who manages or owns Phoenix Pain Management Society. He talked about two volunteers of his who were arrested for selling his illegal goods. He spoke of one of them saying, “…a sixty year old senior citizen…she’s a sweetheart, and now she’s behind bars.”
What did these pot shop owners think was going to happen? Did they really believe that the RCMP was going to allow them to go on breaking the law?
Let me ask the jerk with the “senior citizen” volunteering for him a few questions.
- Do you make so little money that you have to use volunteers?
- Do the motorcycle clubs charge that much for their weed that you have to take advantage of senior citizens? Or are you just that greedy?
- If you were so damn worried about your sixty year old volunteer being arrested, why did you have her breaking the law to make you a profit. You had been warned by the RCMP of the imminent danger to her of being arrested?
- Would you sacrifice your mother too?
Each of these people were given “Cease and Desist” orders approximately three weeks ago. That was long before Nanaimo RCMP shut down three pot shops. Each of them chose to continue to violate federal law, despite being warned.
Thus, each willingly and defiantly continued to break the law and each deserved to be arrested.
People are asking, “Why now?” Because it is against the law, which obviously doesn’t mean anything to the pot shop owners/criminals. Sometimes it takes time to build a case.
Do you understand that the RCMP is protecting you and your kids from criminals and motorcycle gangs?
Where do you think these criminal shop owners buy their weed?
The cross border trade in marijuana and guns
The various gangs smuggle their marijuana south of the border to the U.S. There they trade it for cocaine and weapons which they then smuggle back to Canada. They sell the cocaine at a high profit margin because the even trade, ounce for ounce, of BC Bud for cocaine creates a very large profit margin.
The guns? They use those to control the drug trade.
These are the gangs that Stew Young’s policies have invited to Langford and that are being allowed to entrench themselves into that municipality because Stew keeps sending its citizens false hopes by challenging their presence with bylaw infractions instead of working with other municipalities to institute a policing model that might actually succeed in staving off much of the coming violence there.
Gangs are seizing control of the medical marijuana industry
For at least the past year, I am personally aware that gangs have been actively buying up and/or otherwise taking over the licenses of individuals who have the right to grow marijuana for their own personal, medical use. By combining the yield from those licenses, and also by forcing individual licensees to grow more than they are permitted, these gangs are infiltrating and taking over the medical marijuana trade and converting what was originally a compassionate, but ill conceived program, into an organized criminal enterprise.
Gangs goals in the production of pot versus medical goals
Let us look at two simple, yet undeniable, facts:
- As we learned in other blog postings, two of the main active properties of pot are found in THC, the psychoactive chemical that produces a high, and in CBD. CBD is the chemical principally responsible for the physical, medical benefits thereof. Thus, the ideal strain of pot for medical use would be one low in THC and high in CBD.
- Far more individuals use pot for recreational purposes than use it for medical purposes.
Since gangs, and we are talking about motorcycle gangs and gangs like the Red Scorpions, are in the business of maximizing their illegal profits no matter the misery they create for society. And since, by far, the largest number of pot buyers comes from the recreational users side of the spectrum, instead of from medical users, do you think that the gangs would prefer to produce and sell a marijuana strain high in THC, the psychoactive ingredient, or high in CBD, the physioactive and curative ingredient?
Thus, with gangs selling pot to the plethora of “supposed” medical marijuana dispensaries that sprout like weeds, and will continue to do so unless some sanity is brought to the medical marijuana industry, these dispensaries will be selling pot with the exact opposite properties of what is medically needed.
Watching the store owners/criminals on TV was pathetic. The one that really tugged at your heart strings, NOT, was the criminal/jerk who manages or owns Phoenix Pain Management Society, talking about two volunteers of his who were arrested for selling his illegal goods. He spoke of one of them saying, “…a sixty year old senior citizen…she’s a sweetheart, and now she’s behind bars…“
Nanaimo RCMP shut down three pot shops that are accused of TRAFFICKING TO MINORS and selling to those that don’t have a script/license. Did you miss that part in between all the whining?
So, despite the prescription scam they run wherein anybody can get a medical marijuana card, they still felt the need to cheat and you are supposed to feel sorry for them. This is why Nanaimo RCMP shut down three pot shops.
Getting a medical marijuana card
Nanaimo RCMP shut down three pot shops because while it is true that some shops might require a medical marijuana card from you rather than sell it “under the table” to you as many do, the process to get that medical marijuana card is basically a sham patched together to create the appearance of being in compliance with Health Canada regulations. In many cases, the applicant talks to a weed shop recommended naturopath, tells him/her that he/she has insomnia and that the weed helps with sleep. The naturopath then issues a card good to buy edibles [marijuana baked cookies, etc.] By the way, a Naturopath is NOT a Medical Doctor.
