Once again the Canadian courts are declaring criminal laws have a rational basis because marijuana is not a fundamental right.

The enforcement of criminal laws deprive persons of there fundamental right to liberty as well as their property. A search warrant is an invasion of privacy.

The question is whether the criminal law is reasonable or unreasonable use of police power. The use of police power is to protect public safety. Where is the threat to the rights of others if a person is privately growing marijuana?

After 40 plus years marijuana users are still not included with “everyone.” Why is that?

1. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.
7. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.
8. Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure.
Detention or imprisonment
24 Anyone whose rights or freedoms, as guaranteed by this Charter, have been infringed or denied may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction to obtain such remedy as the court considers appropriate and just in the circumstances.
