FEDS' FALSE BUD ADVERTISING
Our friendly neighbourhood pot promoters, Canadians for Safe Access ( CSA ), are calling for an immediate moratorium on the distribution of medical pot after independent testing of the feds' bud revealed that THC levels are nowhere near the 10.2 per cent claimed by Health Canada.
According to two tests conducted by the Quebec National Institute of Public Health, Health Canada's cannabis contains only 5 per cent THC, barely enough to catch a buzz, let alone have any real therapeutic effect.
For all their talk about health care, the feds seem content to toy with the health of thousands of chronically ill Canadians.
