Prohibitionist politicians throughout the world are dumbfounded after Canada became the first G7 country to legalise cannabis without civilisation coming to an end.

On Thursday 18th June, the Liberal Government of Justin Trudeau followed through with its campaign pledge to end prohibition of cannabis to create a legal taxed and regulated market, taking it out of the hands of criminals.

Canadians celebrate the legalisation of cannabis.

48 hours later, Feed The Birds can report that planes and trains are still running in Canada, no bridges have collapsed and Canadian society is functioning the same as it ever was.

Meanwhile, in the UK, coincidentally, four micro earth tremors have already been felt in the vicinity of where fracking has just been given the go-ahead to get on with it.

Uruguay, the first country in the world to officially legalise cannabis, is ranked first in Latin America in democracy, peace, low perception of corruption, and e-government, and is first in South America when it comes to press freedom, size of the middle class, and prosperity. This was however dismissed by prohibitionists as a blip.

The news came as a great surprise to the British government who have been insisting that cannabis is dangerous for decades, although, they are to make a small change in the law to allow some specialist doctors to prescribe expensive Big Pharma packaged medical marijuana products that have dodgy links to the Conservative Party.

Of course, Canada and Uruguay are not the first countries in the world where cannabis can be legally obtained. While it is technically illegal in The Netherlands, it has in fact been de facto legal since 1972, where it is sold openly to adults in the nation’s famous coffeeshops.

The Netherlands has one of the highest living standards in the EU and Canada is ranked number two for the quality of life in all countries globally.

The legalisation of cannabis in Canada this week has proved so popular that there are supply shortages in parts of the country.

The legalisation of cannabis (not to mention gay marriage) without the subsequent collapse of civilisation can only mean one thing: that Canada, Uruguay and The Netherlands are indestructible.

Several states in the USA have also legalised cannabis, with the main result being a fortune raised in taxes that has been spent on improving infrastructure and schools in legal weed states.

The British Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, only recently announced another futile clampdown on drugs, this time on middle-class drug users, although he went a bit quiet after realising this would mean clamping down on coke-snorting MPs and bankers that donate huge amounts of money to the Conservative Party.

Despite the forthcoming small relaxations in the law in the UK to enable GW Pharmaceuticals to make more money by selling its over-priced cannabis products to line greedy Tory pockets by giving access to more patients, Mr Javid has said he has no intention of legalising the recreational use of cannabis. The Home Office is still peddling the lie that weed is dangerous in its raw form and only magically becomes safe if people with very close ties to the drug dealer in chief, Theresa May, put it in a bottle and sell it to the NHS at exorbitant prices, with the taxpayer picking up the bill.

Canada looks the same after legalising recreational marijuana for adults.
