10. Absofuckinglutely is right.
And what in fact has to be done is for the US to adopt firearms control measures equivalent to Canada's.

That's not me saying that. That's you.

Because firearms are one of the most significant forms of payment for Canada's marijuana crop in the US.

No firearms available to pot purchasers in the US to trade for the pot, a lot less pot getting into the US.

All you have to do is get yourselves some gun control, and you'll have a whole lot of fewer problems of all sorts.

Like I said, a gem in the rough.

If canada doesn't want firearms coming in from the US, do what it takes to make it happen, or admit if can't be done, and try something else.

If the US doesn't want MJ coming in from Canada, do what it takes to make it happen, or admit if can't be done, and try something else.

It might make more sense for both sides to legalize pot. We're willing anytime you are. As long as you aren't, stop extraditing Canadians to the US and trying to put them in prison for life for selling mail-order seeds to people in the US, would you?

Legalizing MJ would qualify as something I meant when I said "try something else", and for what its worth, I am 100% with you about marc emery. If the US wants to be that different than its neighbors, the onus is on them to make it so, or admit they can't and try something else, rather than extraditing Canadians to the US and trying to put them in prison for life for selling mail-order seeds to people in the US.

Its not a matter of a place restricting what they or thier neighbors have going out. Its a matter of that place that wants to be different than thier neighbors doing what it takes to make sure that whatever that thing is that they don't want thier people to have access to doesn't come in, or admit it can't be done, and try something else.
