bouche Posted March 24, 2004 Report Share Posted March 24, 2004 from NDPot.ca Also at issue is the charge of 'trafficking marijuana'. Under current law, simply passing or sharing a marijuana cigarette with a friend or loved one is defined as 'drug trafficking'. This is a serious flaw in the current legal system, one which has been raised repeatedly by the New Democratic Party in its opposition to the current decriminalization legislation. Emery finds himself ironically the victim of the laws which he is currently fighting to change, in so far as his behaviour in sharing a marijuana cigarette with other individuals has been characterized as 'trafficking' and this characterization has been used to detain Emery in jail and deprive him of his normal rights and freedoms for over thirty-six hours.
