Josh Sigurdson talks to Steven Stairs, the Winnipeg 420 organizer and blind medical cannabis activist about Justin Trudeau’s prohibition part 2, also known as Canada’s “legalization of marijuana” set to take effect in 2018.
The Federal government plans to legalize marijuana soon before the next election in 2018. The plan includes stiffer penalties under the guise of freedom. The market will be largely taken over by the government as a giant cash grab, much like prohibition has been for decades. This will push the small businesses out of the market and monopolize massive government industry.
Oh yeah… Did we mention police plan to do roadside saliva tests which would include DNA collection? Talk about Orwellian.
As Steven Stairs says, Justin Trudeau hijacked the movement. Let us hope that going into the future, people don’t simply stand down apathetically thinking the job has been done as the government continues to crack down on individual freedoms.
While Steven is a Green Party member and past candidate, we at WAM do not publicly support any parties, but we certainly aren’t going to censor a message by a passionate individual who has fought for years to ensure his rights and the rights of future generations to do what they please with their own body without the government ruining their lives.
Stay tuned for more video from Winnipeg’s 420, 2017 event and march!

The Truth About Cannabis Legalization In Canada – Just Another Liberal Scam
Published on Apr 22, 2017
Josh Sigurdson hits the streets at 420 in Winnipeg, Canada to talk to a few people about the truth behind the Liberal Party’s “legalization” of marijuana.
Following Justin Trudeau’s promise to legalize marijuana in 2016 and 2017, the Liberal government has announced they will be legalizing cannabis in 2018, but of course as many of us know, legalization means government control, not an end to prohibition. Legalizing a victimless crime is basically taking away a right and then giving it back at a price. So basically, the Trudeau government is putting forward legalization just before the election commences in order to be re-elected. Of course Trudeau was for the most part elected simply based on his call for marijuana legalization.
The government will be monopolizing the cannabis industry, a growing industry set to take off ten-fold in the coming years. The government will push small businesses out of the market, inflate the price, hand the industry over to subsidised big pharma companies and tax it to death.
One can compare the price inflation to cigarettes and alcohol.
When companies can’t compete for quality and demand, there is no proper innovation and there are high prices.
There will likely be road-side saliva tests and DNA collection.
There will likely be irradiated, genetically modified pot, reducing medical benefits.
This legalization policy will keep the majority of cannabis activists apathetic, settling for less instead of fighting for an end to prohibition. Because prohibition will not be over, it will simply be prohibition part two.
People will be allowed to have 30 grams of marijuana, but if they have even half a gram more, they can face as much as 15 years in prison.
This is a massive control complex which will appease many while simply scamming people. Prohibition came from government control and benefit. Legalization will come from government control and benefit as well.
Let’s remember that 60,000+ people have been arrested under Trudeau for possession of cannabis. Does that sound like freedom to you? I didn’t think so.
In this video we speak with Jason Oliveira and Steven Stairs, the 420 Winnipeg organizer about the realities behind legalization.
Stay tuned for more from WAM!
