|TO Trio Pot Charges Nixed!!
First after-Oct7 charge dropped
(CP) Meanwhile, one ordinary Canadian took matters
into his own hands. John Turmel, a self-described professional gambler and perennial
fringe candidate who has run in 54 unsuccessful campaigns for political ofice showed up on
Parliament Hill to light up a joint. He then tried to take a duffle bag - which he said
contained seven pounds of marijuana - into the Parliament Buildings, saying he wanted to
deliver some to Prime Minister Jean Chretien. Turmel was arrested by the RCMP and charged
with possession for purposes of trafficking. He said he will fight the case in court.
|Canada Case Law Timeline
Free forms for anyone charged between Aug 1 2001 and Oct 7 2003 to appeal late for free to overturn their conviction and get their fines back.
On Oct. 7 2003, the Ontario Court of Appeal ruled in Parker and Turmel-Paquette v. The Queen that the prohibition on marijuana in s.4 of the CDSA had no longer existed since Aug. 1 2001 forcing the Crown to stay all pending charges resulting from that time period. That's not good enough. I have made available Free forms for anyone to make a motion to "do-it-yourself" and have their stayed charges dismissed and convictions from charges laid between Aug. 1 2001 and Oct 7 2003 overturned.
C. "The Engineer" Turmel, leader of the Abolitionist Party of Canada. I am
the longest-running registered party leader to have advocated the abolition of the
prohibition against drugs. I've bought Marijuana Victory bonds worth an ounce of
recreational hemp when legaland wrote the Laughing Grass Poem
for the 1994 Toronto Marijuana Rally (VIDEO).
