    and this sort of thing surprizes you? this is what its come down to, my personal meds were confiscated this month and even though my papers were in order the rcmp and canada post all screwed me over and ive been fighting all this month to get my medicine . This means all of canadas patients over 12 thousand should all start litigating against the human rights violations that this government of all levels have been doing , and the rcmp should be penalized for taking it in the first place. ITS A CRMINAL ACT THEYRE DOING!!!!! this is whats over looked.

    Purolator and Canada Post have nothing to do with each other. Everything is separate.

    There is so many things wrong with this whole situation that I find myself unable to stay silent. First of all, I understand that everyone is ticked off with Purolator but they are only keeping the public's best interest at heart. If they were allowing packages to be delivered that contained cocaine or heaven forbid, child pornography, you would all be on their case for not checking packages properly. That being said, I totally agree with all of you in regards to giving Mr Oakley back his marijuana. If he has proven that he is legally allowed it for medical reasons there should be no questions about returning it. I can't help but wonder if Mr Oakley needed it for any other reason than HIV/AIDS, would the RCMP still hold his medication on him? I watch my son go through pain every day of his life and have always said that when he comes of age (only 11 years to go) that I will find a doctor to issue him a licence for his degenerative disease that is extremely painful. But now through this article I hear that the "Amazing" Harper is taking that away from all the patients who desperately need it. Can someone please explain his reasoning behind this? Other than the obvious of not being able to legalize it and tax it without losing votes from people that are anti-marijuana.

    HIV positive singles face very difficult challenges when it comes to dating. They have to either date someone with HIV or disclose their HIV status. Disclosing to someone that's HIV+ is a terrifying task and finding someone else with HIV. POZmingle. com helps you Dating and Finding Love for HIV Positive Singles.

    What do you suppose would happen if we repealed all of the marijauna laws? One criminal empire will be destroyed .....that's all! STOP HARPER!!!! Stop making criminals out of otherwise law abiding citizens. And give Richard back his medication right now!

    I am absolutely disgusted by this! I run a group called the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Marijuana society. We help people find designated growers and teach patients how to grow, help with forms, whatever we can do within the confines that we have to work with. Recently passed amendments to the MMAR state that an individual can have a signing doctor and a designated grower in other provinces. To question a mans health/honestly in this situation is deplorable, and the police involved should be ashamed! And Russel, yes dark times are ahead for us, I'm licensed to grow my own and a supply for another patient, I have Marfan Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that causes the connective tissue in the entire body stretch and weaken over time. This is the only medication I am allowed to use for pain due to other conflicting "traditional s". What Harper wants to do will destroy our lives, there is a comment e-mail at the bottom of this page with the recommended changes, please people, write and express your concerns. http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/dhp-mps/consultation/marihuana/_2011/program/consult-eng.php

    It's either time for the RCMP to buck up and learn the law (did I really just have to say that?) or there's room in the market for a courier service that strictly deals with RX products that doesn't pawn off to Government Post & their Puro buddies.

    END PROHIBITION NOW!! The "war" on drugs is a farce, and we can see in this story how a patient is made to suffer because of the stupid drug laws. I say legalize drugs, sell them in the liquor store like booze and collect taxes on them.

    So if they package is supposed to have no scent or distinguishing factors, I guess Purolator opened it and checked what was there? You have to wonder about the ethics of staff at Purolator

    So if the cops think my medication is ilegal, they can confiscate it and figure it out all while I am refused medication. Give him the weed and then investigate. Better yet, he'll just go underground supporting the crooks here.

      Since Purolator is Canada Post owned, go after Canada Post as well.

    Seriously, it must be a slow day for the RCMP or wait, maybe this is easier then getting the really bad criminals! and what business does Purolator have to get involved.

    I'm sure there is a lot of red tape to go thru and I agree with that..but..it seems this man has ample proof it is a medical necissity.....Give him back his "prescribed" drugs and do an investigation...don't let him suffer any more then he has too....that is just plain wrong!!

    I have been a Federally Licensed Medical Marijuana User and activist for 9 years, and my advice to Richard Oakley is to do what my wife and I have been doing since May 2nd: Get his affairs in order! The Medical Marijuana Program at Health Canada will be shut down very soon - most likely before the end of the year. Because of numerous court rulings that have struck the program down as unconstitutional, and Stephen Harper's wildly irrational love of Prohibition, we can expect to see the program shut down as soon as this winter. Yes, this would leave thousands of sick people without medicine, and/or breaking the law. Yes, this would be a violation of our Charter rights and a number of court rulings that established those rights. But, as we have seen, this government has no use for laws and court rulings that don't suit their agenda. Harper hates the medical users because we completely undermine that entire agenda. The government and cops say pot is dangerous, and we prove them wrong by getting healthier! I use ten grams a day, for example, and my health has only improved! The cops say it is impossible to grow pot safely, but thousands of us have been doing it for years! They hate us because we represent the Human Rights foot-in-the-door towards full-on legalization, and that is why the RCMP are beginning to clamp down on us. Let's face it, if it weren't for The War On Certain Drugs, we wouldn't even really need the RCMP at all. Besides that, using the military to wage a "war" against the citizens of it's own country is not only unconstitutional, it is in violation of a number of international laws. This arrest, the numerous compassion club busts across the nation over the past two months, and the promise last month by Health Canada to take away our grow permits should be evidence enough that The Big Pot-Head Round-Up is finally underway! Medical marijuana in Canada died on May 2nd. It is just a matter of time before we are all classified as criminals once again. The question is, how many of us will die at the hands of this government? Russell Barth Educators For Sensible Drug Policy Federally Licensed Medical Marijuana User

    Don't the cops have anything better to do? Give this man his weed and be done with it!

      This is rather concerning to think that Purolator (Canada Post in General) are opening people's mail. I wonder is this why people don't receive their mail at times or their Christmas packages. Maybe these are the ones who are taking the missing parcels.
