    http://www.naturalnews.com/023121.html A new Canadian proposal that goes to far regarding herbal suppliments. Could also be adopted here.
    Granted, some claims of herbal supplimints are a bit farfetched and need to be taken with caution, but this is another example of using a shotgun to kill a fly.

    What are you talking about using a shotgun. We aren't allowed guns.

    Cute. So now home made dandelion wine becomes a controlled substance. I imagine that is the enema fluid?

    I look at it this way they can ban herbal stuff all they want, but they can't ban the knowledge that I have in my head out of there. I can walk our farm and get about any herb I need to heal our family. Heres to all that want to ban herbs. [finger][finger][finger]

    I not sure where you got that idea from. I've had no problem what so ever getting guns with the proper permits.

    I'm pretty hopeful that the changes propsed for the herbal suppliments will not go through.

    Yes, at home, in the bush etc.. sorry for the hijack. :lol: And I'm not a LEO. Alot of the hardware we can have is marked as such however. The Para 16/40 and the Bushmaster are allowed for range use only and the RobArms XCR I can hunt with. Go figure.

    They may not be able to ban the knowledge (at least for a generation or 2) but they can bad the use or even presence of the plant. Need proof? No need to look any further than marijuana. A plant native to most of the country, very useful for fiber, oil, pulp, medicinal and more that grows wild or can be easily cultivated. If you are caught in possesion of it or useing it though you go to jail, if its in your system you cant have a job and if it is found growing on your property you may well loose your home AND go to jail.

    Big money in the form of drug companies want herbals banned just like fiber industry and others wanted marijuana banned and for the same reason, it cuts into their profits. I dont figure its any big surprise that its being considered and will most likely happen, just a way to put more folks in prison and boost the black market yet more.

    I would agree with this to a point, but your not talking about one plant here your talking about thousands of plants/trees (different types that is). Are they going to wipe all the White Oak trees? How about Black Walnut? They are both medicinal, I think they might piss a few people off going that far. They would have to throw everyone with any amount of land in jail. Got dandilions in your yard...oops your going to jail. :shock: Some how I just don't think thats going to fly. [booze]

    I was joking around. Its the huge difference between my home country and my adopted country

    I would like to think they are smarter than that but I couldnt say so positively and I definatly wouldnt put it past them to make it so that harvest or use of them was a crime. Kind of like the way that if a couple wild pot plants are found growing wild in your ditch, while they will most likely be destroyed (even though they are native), they dont confiscate your land or toss you in jail BUT if they find out you planted them, harvested from them, watered them, helped them grow or anything of that sort then all the above may well happen.

    I could see them making it illegal to sell or harvest, but inforcing the harvesting part would be a bit difficult to inforce.
