    What a very sad waste of our tax dollars. Sounds like a small personal medical marijuana garden to me. When are we going to stop this madness? The strong MAJORITY of Canadians do not want this to continue. Ruining this family's lives making them look like criminals for growing nothing more than the most therapeutically active, most medicinal plant known to mankind. This plant that nobody has ever died from in the history of mankind. Whoever this is, look up M.U.M.M. (Maritimers Unite for Medical Marijuana) on facebook.
