3 ways I was abused while attending East Northumberland Secondary School & Trenton High School.

  1. I was molested – I was molested by my ex step brother & Second cousin Shane Fraiser. Dad didn’t understand by Marrying my mom’s Cousin of a hick family that he automatically was committing abuse.
  2. I was obstructed from obtaining my education – I still found a way.
  3. I was alienated – I wasn’t allowed to have Special Ed friends or overnight guests ever. I grew up constantly lonely. I had a best friend in the Chess club that I wanted to be closer to but I couldn’t because I didn’t want them to be called a “Retard” at my house.
  4. I was subjected to Psychosocial Abuse – Melissa Deroy has BiPolar neurosis and Psychosis. Which put me at odds with constant abuse.
  5. I was put in the middle of a divorce feud I did not care about

Sometimes I can’t tell the difference between love & abuse… All I have ever wanted was just to be fed, socialized and cared for. That is not what I got. Instead I got isolation and a creative writing journal.

Why we need to remove tax on Medical Cannabis products

Why we need to remove tax on medical cannabis products

Ashton Deroy writes: Let us call the regulated Marijuana market what it is. A gigantic failure! It is true, the government took a fragile market & then taxed it making the vulnerable market worse off. Now the only people I know who buy regulated cannabis are high earning people who trade convenience for cost. One area where I see significant room for improvement as a consumer are in the Medical cannabis products, which if I can afford them are the option I would wish to use over black market. However, we need to stop taxation of medicine. We are turning desperate people to the illegal option and risking an approach to a public health epidemic. With urgency I urge public officials to stop  taxing medical marijuana products

Here are 3 reasons we should remove taxation from medical cannabis products: 

    1. Increase consumption – Taxation is a method to slow down consumption. That is basic economics. While I still think there is an opportunity to apply a tax on high THC recreational cannabis. I think we need to think more critically about why medical patients need Cannabis with high THC content. The taxation is directly why people are going to places like Tyendinega and accessing the illegal market over ordering regulated cannabis products.
    2. Eliminate black market medical cannabis providers – Here is something people are not considering. Many of the dispensaries use branding, personal sales & promotional strategies to attract medical cannabis users.  Medical consumers buy cannabis more frequently & spend more money. This is really bad to have these patients relying on black market cannabis because we don’t know enough about how this cannabis is grown & if it is safe? Personally I know none of it is greenhouse grown or factory processed which is the main safe strategy for growing clean & healthy to consume cannabis by government standards. We should not adapt a strategy of government intervention to shut down reservation dispensaries. We should be forced to try to make the legal market more appealing through competition because otherwise this industry only benefits people with investment & not the end consumer.
    3. Decrease resistance to the regulated market – There is a straight up resistance to the legal market for cannabis. In Toronto I recall the illegal Cannabis dispensaries used to encourage their customers to oppose the legal market & support free-market practices. The problem here is that this is directly what puts the legal market under attack! One of the rival blogs https://endracebasedlaw.ca/ thinks the answer is just to shut down all of the illegal dispensaries existing on the Native reservations. However, I am opposed to that. I think this is why people are equating the cannabis market interference to negative aspects of Tyrannical Socialism. Instead if you remove the taxes you make medical products more appealing and you gain consumers who otherwise would only buy illegal products. Undercutting the competition is the Wal-Mart way. Arresting the competition is the Tyrannical Socialist way. 

 

 

Not a radical idea, in fact this has been adopted in places in Canada where they are struggling to eliminate the black market. 

  • New Brunswick, + 0%of the base or dutiable amount;
  • Prince Edward Island, + 0%of the base or dutiable amount;

According to… https://wolterskluwer.ca/blog/taxation-cannabis-canada/

Many Canadians consider the legal cannabis market a pure example of government stupidity. Since legal cannabis was introduced to Canadians there have been supply shortages, overly high product costs & unreasonable taxation. To improve this we must first look at the Medical cannabis market, specifically with how we handle taxation in that market. I think we should consider removing tax from medical cannabis products to improve accessibility, strengthen the market & reduce the risk to public health.

3 reasons I love Green Grass Oasis

Oasis

Ashton Deroy Writes: I love Tyendinaga Cannabis. I think yesterday on Instagram I may have triggered people who think, “He hates First Nations cannabis. He is an a**.” No, I am being honest and upfront with the current state of the legally defined illegal cannabis market. The honesty is at the end of the day is my social tribe needs to be in constant communication with each other to make sure cannabis is safe, accessible & we all agree on where we spend our money. That is it, I am not big enough to commit Libel which then amounts damage to Legacy 420. I am not the moral police! Check out the marijuana black list

Now I love Green Grass Oasis. I truly believe they are one of the kindest and fairest dispensaries in Tyendinaga. What do I love about this unlicensed dispensary? Here are 3 things I really love about Green Grass Oasis

  1. Friendly staff– They have a friendly & knowledgeable staff who can answer your questions on products.
  2. Never been short – We have never been shorted at Green Grass Oasis. There is a reputation of certain locations on the Res shorting people when they buy something like an ounce. 
  3. Close to but not quite medical quality – I am not going to pretend Res weed comes close to the quality of medical marijuana. Oasis comes pretty close though. However they don’t give you percentage estimates on your containers, I don’t think anything is scientifically verified with their strains & you don’t really know much about how they ensure they grow safe cannabis for your consumption. However great quality so far. Top shelf cannabis is amazing & for lower shelf items you get what you pay for which is not all bad either. 

Do not get me wrong. I sometimes buy legal Cannabis from OCS and Aphria. However, I am still a supporter of the illegal market. We just have to be open and honest about what the illegal market is like. If you are a friend or a family member in my tribe you have to tell people when you suspect foul play at illegal dispensaries. 

If you work with Legacy 420. Contact me @ Ashtonderoy@gmail.com . I have just heard some really evil things from people in regards to Legacy 420 hence why we keep you on the Black List. Prove me wrong! Just prove me wrong and do some good. I also read the release on habitat for humanity. However, the accusations I heard were that the operation was gang owned  & that you watered down CBD products. As a person with autism, I need places to grab reliable CBD.

Tyendinaga & Marijuana safe shop index

Ashton Deroy Writes: This index is for my tribe of stoners to let them know about safe & unsafe cannabis purchasing locations. Click my name to check out my Facebook page. Please like and Subscribe for the update. This is my Tyendinaga & Marijuana safe shop index. Thank you for clicking on to my website. Just a reminder that marijuana from the reservation is considered purchasing illegal cannabis. I very much recommend purchasing legal containers to store your illegal cannabis.  

The reason for creating this safe shop index is so that family & friends have access to information on acquiring marijuana safely from different available resources. 

Oasis

My step Brother Matt recommended Green Grass Oasis. While I wouldn’t say much on the Res comes close to medicinal quality. Green Grass Oasis comes pretty close. I have been able to successfully use their THC and CBD products when in need.

Organic Green Dispensary was recommended by my uncle. Name is omitted. They gave us free joints on 4/20 and they have the best selection of edible products in Tyendinaga.

Better Buds is recommended by a friend Ryan. He says he likes the variety. Thank you Ryan for letting other people know the safe places to shop on the Res. I am sure the readers and close social circle will appreciate this information.

Ontario Cannabis Store

No shame in buying legal!

I understand people in my stoner tribe might have a few objections to buying legal Marijuana. However, the OCS is used by healthcare providers in the tribe, colleagues & I used it myself to buy Tangerine Dream. That is a high-quality Cannabis Cup 2010 winning strain. Also the quality is higher & the taste is better for those of us stoners who love a clean marijuana strain for a mid-afternoon high tea time.

 

Spark Medical Cannabis

Do you know the pros of medical cannabis? 

  1. Tax Deductible as a medical expense
  2. Social stigma is often removed as a medical user who consulted with healthcare providers. 
  3. You can travel anywhere in Canada with medical cannabis. 

“However, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) allows for medical cannabis to be claimed as a “medical expense” deduction on your federal income taxes, the same way you can claim the cost of hearing aids, insulin, or a wheelchair. Here’s how it works.” RateHub, 2019

Black List

Legacy 420

Legacy 420 Is blacklisted. Unnamed sources from my stoner tribe put out rumors that range from product tampering to the store being gang-affiliated. It is a shame, they had these cool radio ads I used to hear from Rock 107. My favorite Quinte West radio station. 

Pot Shoppe

The Pot Shoppe is now blacklisted due to the fact a cashier attempted to give my roommate improper change to pocket a lot of extra cash. We are talking they used to do big business with the shop. Then they decided to blacklist them because of one attempt at an unethical behavior. The shop also runs a radio station with music I am sure they do not have the rights to. I am not sure how copyright law is executed on Tyendinaga but I imagine if caught they could land themselves in some hot water!
