Free Mark Emery Or Else...

If we don't free Mark Emery and work quickly to legalize pot, we may be in deep kaka. Don't believe me? Check out this article:

Cannabis may soothe inflamed bowels

Cannabis-based drugs could offer treatment hope to sufferers of inflammatory bowel disease, UK researchers report.
Cannabis smokers with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have often claimed that smoking a joint seems to lessen their symptoms. So a group of researchers from Bath University and Bristol University, both in the UK, decided to explore the clinical basis for the claims.
“There is quite a lot of anecdotal evidence that using cannabis seems to reduce the pain and frequency of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, so we decided to see if we could find out what was going on there,” says Karen Wright, a pharmacologist at Bath University. “Historically, it was smoked in India and China centuries ago for its gastrointestinal properties.”


We must act quickly or uncontrolled diarrhea may sweep the land, causing untold hardship on the population. This, if occurring in conjunction with a toilet paper shortage, would cause the end of life as we know it in Canada.

Please, write your local member of parliament, and help put an end to IBD.

Humour that rivals the 'brown note' episode from South Park. I am ashamed at how funny I find it.

I'm gonna pitch this idea to Mrs. Fun, who's been complaining about my "vapours" for a while now. A little bit o' BC Bud means never having to hold her breath while walking between rooms.

Thanks, man!
