I don't understand way people are still traveling to Karmanaskis for Cannabis? Don't these people know by now that Cannabis has no health benefits as said in their report by Health Canada after performing tests on the Cannabis plant in their Laboratories in Ontario.

A decision will be made regarding the passenger flights to Karmanaskis later on.

Aside from the recreational aspect of cannabis, there is actually a lot of research on the positive health benefits of the plant and its derivatives. Canadians have the internet. Just because Health Canada says itís bad doesnít mean that the population canít find information and make up their own minds. 5 minutes on Google turned up these articles on benefits of cannabis:

I'm not trying to convince you to legalize cannabis in New Canada, just pointing out that there is a reason for people to want it, and if they can't get it at home they will go next door.

This is why Cannabis should be banned, As it takes good business away from Major Phar-maceutical Corporations in New Canada who makes lots of money producing well established treatments, they advocated the complete eradication of the plant for sometime now. They just dont want to lose business.

By that logic, we shouldn't allow anything but "Speedy" Alka-seltzer or Bayer aspirin for various pain relief. No Tylenol, no Akeve, no Motrin.

Never tried cannabis, even college, but it seems to provide some relief for people in pain. I don't advocate mixing driving with it, and certainly one should consider side effect s, as should be done with any med.

Does New Canada forbid alcohol, smoking products, and vaping,, as well?

While I am not an advocate, I see no logical justification for such a rigid approach which folks can easily find a way around. It will likely result in degradation of respect for the law, as happened in the US during Prohibition.

Karma-Naskis accepts the New Canadian Parliament reinstating the Ban on the plant Cannabis within New Canada.
It is seeking clarification on the suspension of ferry connections to the mainland.
No access restrictions on Canadians or Canadian products entering Karma are in place.

It has decided that all Air traffic to Karmanaskis has been diverted to Victoria International Airport instead, and Land travel has been heavily restricted and patrolled by the RCMP's Drug Enforcement Services to prevent anyone from bringing Cannabis to New Canada.

In Vancouver All Karma Ferries will undergo a highly detailed search conducted by the Canadian Coast Guard to find any suspected Cannabis plant onboard before they enter port.

the Penalty for the Possession of Cannabis in New Canada is ether a fine of $5,000 or a 2 year term in jail and drug rehabilitation.

Health Canada had already done research on it before, they found no proof that Cannabis has any medical benefits to treating people with cancer. In fact they found proof that it can cause cancer, due to the chemicals that make up the plant. Im sorry but it must remain banned in New Canada.

Parliament Hill Ottawa
The New Canadian House of Commons is in a emergency meeting over the Free Cannabis crisis that has swept the nation.

(Speaker of the House): "Honorable Minister of Justice and Law"

(Minister of Justice and Law): "Mr Speaker, this "Free Cannabis" that is being illegally entering into the country has caused a spike in drug related crimes in the past couple of days, our Police forces are stretched to the limit and the jails are getting clogged full of pot addicts, something has to be done to control this outbreak."
(Clapping).

(Speaker of the House): "Honorable Minister of Health."

(Minister of Health): "Mr Speaker I don't understand why people seek this kind of alternative medicine, when we have Health Canada approved Cancer treatments that works better without the need for Cannabis? and now this crisis is causing problems with distributing our approved Cancer treatments to Cancer clinics as a result, the company that is responsible for illegally distributing this plant to the country that is disrupting our Health Care system must be shut down in order to put an end to this crisis."
(Clapping).

(Speaker of the House): "Honorable Minister of Foreign Affairs."

(Minister of Foreign Affairs): "Mr Speaker, my colleagues has sent out a message to our counterpart in Karmanaskis asking them to send their DEA to help us fight this crisis. Hopefully they will respond in time."
(Clapping).

After a couple of days worth of successful drug busts at the border crossing by the Canadian Border services agency, and RCMP drug enforcement services, the illegal shipments of Free Cannabis has been completely halted. Now the Clean up effort can began, The RCMP has issued a statement asking the people to hand over the free Cannabis samples to the nearest Health Canada locations throughout the country for immediate disposal, doing so they will have the charge of possession of a illegal drug and consumption of it be dropped will receive a Health Canada Approved Non Cannabis substitutes to treat those suffering from various ailments like Cancer and ALS, free of charge.

Health Canada has reviewed these websites about the medical benefits of Cannabis, but concluded that these are false pieces of information, The plant can be more harmful then good, by supporting the Cannabis Prohibition Act, the country can breath easier and improve the health of New Canadians everywhere.

Karma-Naskis is in no way responsible for this illegal distribution within New Canada. We will continue to respect all import restrictions.

With all NC air and sea connections to K-Country now halted, extra capacity is being added from the Karma side.
Longer delays have been reported due to increased checks/ harassment but we are still flying to Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Trinity Bay (NF).
The Karma ferry is still operating Nanaimo-Vancouver but with long delays on the NC side.

Edit Mech said " and receive a $5,000 check for compensation"

30 million x $5k ?

CFB Petawawa.
The Officers of the Canadian Airborne Regiment, meet up at the Lt Colonels estate to go over their report of the mission at Syria with the RODs 15th Battalion (Para).

(Lt Colonel Maxwell): "So...This is what the ROD had in mind for my Airborne?"

(Major Clarkson): "Indeed sir, It goes aginest what this regiment was designed for as a Air Droppable Fire support unit, We where not meant to fight on our own without another regiment to back us up. Its like the ROD thought we where an elite unit?"

(Lt Colonel Maxwell): "Indeed, In your report, you said that the RODs Paratroopers possessed vehicles that can be Air dropped, is that true?"

(Major Clarkson): "Yes, there called Humvee's, they had 5 of these vehicles for their Mortar platoons."

(Lt Colonel): "interesting, but sounds impractical."

(Major Dawson): "the 15th Battalion is a confusing lot for sure."

Dispite the Canadian Airborne Regiments failing to halt the PAC Armour in Syria, The New Canadian Armed forces Administration has mandated to train the New Canadian Army's Infantry into adopting this new maneuver warfare tactics based of the RODs tactics they hope that this will improve the infantry's chances of succeeding in any military operation.

And based off the report data on how the 15th Battalion operates, the Administration has decided to update and Train the Canadian Airborne regiment, into using the 81mm Mortars, and if it could be found a Vehicle that is capable of being Air Dropped from the back of a C-17.

Also a New Weapon has been introduced by Colt New Canada for the Army, the C-14 Timber wolf sniper rifle, their available to the following Regiments, Canadian Airborne Regiment, The Royal Canadian Regiment, Princess Patrica's Light Infantry, and the Royal 22nd Regiment. Use of this weapon requires a member of the infantry to display a high degree of accuracy and a keen eye to spot targets from a great distance.
