Rick Simpson Story
On November 25th, 2009, one day before I was crowned the Freedom Fighter of the Year at the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam, I received word that I have been raided again by the RCMP. I contacted Tim Hunter at the Amherst detachment and asked if I was being charged. Of course, he refused to give me straight answer. All he would say was that the RCMP wanted to talk to me.
After openly growing hemp in my backyard this past summer and announcing this fact to the public on Tom Young´s open line talk show in June, how could the RCMP not be aware of my activities? The truth is they knew exactly what I was doing. RCMP officers were even sending people that needed help to me. I can only surmise that the purpose of this raid was to keep me from returning to Canada.
If I returned home I would likely be charged arrested and put in jail I expect without bail, this would mean that I would have no access to the medication I require. I am not afraid of their jails but I cannot go without my medicine, the medical system has already proven that they have nothing that can help my condition. So for me to return to Canada would be like committing suicide. I would be thrown in jail and denied my medicine and a short time later you would hear in the news that Rick Simpson died of natural causes. I cannot tell the people of Canada who are depending on my presence to help their medical conditions how sorry I am. But it was not me who caused this situation.
It seems the goal was to keep me from returning home and they succeeded. But to what end? Many hemp magazines are now telling their readers how to heal themselves with this wonderful medicine. If governments want to live in denial, it will be short-lived. We are gaining tens of thousands of followers every day. You cannot stop the truth.
It's good to talk.
