Berny a Hero For All MMAR Patients!

I am so sad to say goodbye to a good friend I got to know the past two years through facebook correspondence. I befriended him after I read about his plight, getting busted for growing personal even though he was told his card was in the mail. This only created a very long delay in getting a MMAR card. I chatted with him regularly and felt his frustration and his anger with the program and "law abiding" narrow minded citizens responsible for reporting him.
I was so pleased and happy that in the last month, that he finally was receiving his marijuana. It was the first time in two year he seemed happy and mellow.
He should have never had to battle so hard nor should anyone in his postion. It should never happen again!
May you rest in peace my dear friend and I am glad I got the chance to tell you that you are my hero and everyone else's who is fighting this war on a medication that should be free to the people!
Love you always!

Berny Belair article.

"He says he applied, with the help of his physician, for a permit to grow and use marijuana for medical purposes.

The permit, he says, is on the way. While he waited, a neighbour built a small grow area in his basement. A pair of high-wattage lights and a timer were installed and, soon, 25 plants were underway.

On Tuesday, Belair said a police officer arrived at his door" [quoted from Drug Forum]

Cannabis Facts for Canadians

Compassion clubs and other medical marijuana distributors should have restrictions on them lifted, a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled on Monday. To the delight of a packed courtroom in Vancouver, Justice Marvyn Koenigsberg said federal regulations that limit people's access to medicinal cannabis are "constitutionally invalid" and gave the government a year to amend the rules. The current rules under the federal medical marijuana program limit a supplier from providing marijuana to more than one patient and restrict growers from sharing a common space. Koenigsberg made the ruling during the trial of Vancouver Island resident Mathew Beren. In 2004, RCMP raided a grow-op Beren ran in Sooke and charged him with trafficking. Koenigsberg found Beren guilty on two drug-related charges Monday but granted him an absolute discharge because he grew marijuana exclusively for the Vancouver Island Compassion Society. The discharge means Beren may continue to grow marijuana for the VICS, a non-profit that distributes marijuana to 850 patients. "In my view, it would be contrary to public interest for Mr. Beren to have criminal record," Koenigsberg told the courtroom. "If ever there was a case where an absolute discharge is appropriate, it's this one." Outside the courthouse, Beren told media he was overjoyed by the decision. "We're talking 14 years to life for what? For helping people?" he said. "I want to make sure people that need medical marijuana can get it without the dangers of the street. It's an awesome day
