The Liberal Party elite is heavily invested in the medical marijuana Licensed Producers mail-order business
Anne McLellan is engaged by the law firm Bennett Jones LLP, that describes itself as a ‘very entrepreneurial law firm’ that wants to be the ‘go to’ law firm for licensed producers (LPs) of marijuana in Canada.
This is what should disqualify McLellan for the appearance of a conflict of interest. But then Justin Trudeau was first introduced to “legalization” by Tweed Marijuana licensed producer cofounder Chuck Rifici, who has gotten rich as a consequence of his investment in his LP, and who has been agitating for all competing dispensaries and cannabis sellers to be arrested and shut down. Rifici is also the chief financial officer of the Liberal Party of Canada. McLellan’s place of employment openly seeks licensed providers to represent while she maintains impartiality on this task force.
And it’s not just the chairperson of the Task Force who is facing a conflict of interest. A long list of Liberal Party insiders and government officials connected to the cannabis economy has been circulating around social media:

Police are only as good as the laws they enforce so by de facto all cops are bad. Good people ignore bad laws and are loud about doing so. I would rather live my life fighting evil then as a complacent coward living in fear. Ruled by morals and ethics no one needed tell me whats right I know, rewards come from love, truth, hard work and giving my heaven is in my selfless parenting and my ongoing activism, I see plants growing in parking lots and step over shit in the park.
Be the change, we all win in the garden, when weed is growing in every yard and every park their laws have no force and effect they only remind us of OUR POWER!
AND I buy my weed from >>> canadiancannabis.com/<<< STILL because 1 I can't grow its good they have the pimpingest bad ass weed.
