    Tax dollars hard at work... give us a break. RCMP go do some real work. Cannabis - a healing herb (search 'hemp oil' & 'rick simpson'). Let people choose how they want to live their lives. Instead of the RCMP ruining people's lives, they should be advocating for changes to these draconian laws. Enough! (PS: a few drops of diluted oil at night - great for a sore throat!)
