    Our government hood defies all logic. What most of the experts conclude is that prohibition plays into the hands of organized crime. This also makes it quite profitable for the law establishment, from lawyers to prison guards. It is an industry funded 100% by the taxpayers. Total overhead to us.
    Our gov’t is on a crusade, believing they are doing God’s work.
    All the small time growers and our friend Marc Emery are really the ones doing God’s work.
    Spread the Gospel.

    Yes, gang violence is certainly increasing in Prince George, British Columbia. This increase in illegal weapons and gang-related violence just happens to coincide with the RCMP’s marijuana purge in BC’s Interior. However, there is more to the story. While Nicholson is directing nearly 100% of drug enforcement resources to eradicating marijuana, at the same time he is directing the RCMP to “look the other way” when it comes to crack cocaine. Consequently, more and more young people are turning to crack cocaine instead of marijuana. In my view, it’s the increase in crack cocaine which is really responsible for all the assaults, robberies, and murders happening in Prince George right now. Nicholson is either on the take or else has been extorted into promoting the interests of organized crime in Canada. Note that the biggest impediment to this agenda of crack cocaine addiction and violence is Marc Emery. Nicholson and his partners in crime the gangs don’t like Marc because if more people smoke pot, then less will buy cocaine from organized criminal gangs. Our justice system is run by gangsters.
