    Just wonderful – father and son charged with working together towards a common goal!

    Who knows, they might just spend a few years of quality time together thinking about their next project. (in a cell, of course)

      They said the same about people like Nelson Mandela until the tide changed and he was turned from terrorist to freedom fighter, within 10 years these guys will be viewed as brave pioneers, persecuted by an unjust, discriminatory system in its final throes.

        Someday soon all will be free to grow our own herb and consume it how we choose just like Colorado, Washington and soon to be New York.

          Did I get that right?

            Pretty much, but your childish stereotyping of a group of people as illiterate, ignorant fools clearly displays your attempt to disparage others in order to distract from your own issues and shortcomings. Thank god your’e a dying breed.

            we all know your cabinet is filled with prescription pills. Hey how are they working for your anxiety or depression.

    Family Business….Don’t hate the Player….Hate the game…….What next…….

    • Keepin' it Real...4Real! says:

      you hit the nail on the head brah…”family business”…they don”t want you and i to cultivate, and get on our feet…that’s why we are fumbling around, delaying due process until the elitists that are raking in the dough as we speak, find a sure fire way to legalize BUT still control the market…the USA has already gained Patents for its chemical properties, so that when it finally has been legalized, they will have full control or to maximize their profits. In my opinion…lets forget about the Medicinal Agenda, we can always import what ever is required for said patients…Lets just legalize it for whoever wants to grow and smoke at their leisure. THUS eliminating the criminal elements…Isn’t that what we are trying to accomplish here in Bermuda..? Or are we..?? Why are we fighting a war by throwing stones back and forth…that can continue forever…What ever you do DON’T let the GOVT. run things…it will still be a controlled substance…the price will not change by much either, they know what certain people are making off of this commodity… Cannabis is a multi billion dollar textile…too bad you all haven’t even bothered to research the scientific information which is published but are not placed at optimum eye level therefore often passed by…i guess it all depends on your hunger for the truth…a conspiracy is a conspiracy until one shred of evidence has been found to be true, then the need for further investigation will just uncover one falsehood after another…the truth…it’s a hard thing to swallow, not many can…internet is not just about Video games, Amazon, PayPal or Porn…it’s a wealth of information…how hungry are you..?
      not much time left, you need to come out of the box and see whats out here.

        I couldn’t have said it any better! Knowledge is the key!

  5. Just One says:

    I think most of is know that the law is dumb. We just need the lawmakers to fix it…

  6. John says:

    If growing weed was as difficult as distilling liquor then it would be legal. However, since growing a plant is so, so easy, then “the powers” would not be able to stranglehold and extort taxes. We all know that alcohol is far, far worse than a little ‘erb, but since there’s no profit in it for the “big boys”, then they’d rather control access because they won’t be able to get their share of the spoils.

    • Beers or Bears? says:

      Distilling liquor isn’t difficult. Just has to be extremely sanitary.

  7. Grand Wizzard says:

    Legalize it like the rest of the sensible world.

  8. more than enough says:

    locking people in prison for marijuana is a crime…
    while increasing the availability of alcohol
    with your can never have enough ideology
    putting fancy labels on your bottles of poison
    clean cut, smoking cigarettes, counting cash
    over-paid over-stocked aristocrats
    with no love for humanity
    one day you will have to answer for your crimes against us

    ” I may not be familiar wid how de country run, dem fight de sensimillia and allow de coke fe come, mash up whole heap a daughter and so-wa-wa-won,so pass me de lighter mek we blaze de chillum!!

      Childish stereotyping of people as ignorant fools. Thank god you’re a dying breed.

      • sage says:

        Don’t talk about the author of these song lyrics like that, you don’t know who he is and you know you can’t understand a word of it anyway, let me help you out but this is the last time! Translation:” I may not be familiar with the running of the country, where the authorities fight against seedless marijuana but turn a blind eye to the importation of cocaine, destroying the lives of large numbers of our daughters and sons, in the meantime pass me the disposable lighter so I can set fire to this Rastafarian water pipe.” You can read in a british voice to make it seem more convincing if you’d like.

    They can never keep a good man down. Strong lions dem a deal with! Big up yaself Uncle Granville and Man!

  11. cliff says:

    this s*** has to stop, everywhere else in the world u can go to doctor and get a weed permit, But here here in this place if convicted they put us to jail for it. when will the bulls*** stop.

    • Sara says:

      I think it’s more of a case of Bermuda not being ready. Decriminalizing small amounts is a good start but does nothing to discourage the black market which is the true goal to help society. Allowing man to cultivate his own small personal amounts and government regulation for market sales are the only way to cripple organized crime in the US, Mexico, and certainly Bermuda. Will it remove all organized crime? No way, but it will have a devastating effect! In ten years we will actually be able to see the stats in places that have legalized like Washington, Colorado, Uruaguay, and the others that will follow these next few years. The proof will be in the pudding and all this debate will end and the facts will be there for all to see. Me thinks the money flowing in like milk and honey will persuade many the investor.
