BKACPP - Marijuana Party

Party Name: Marijuana Party

Leader (Location):
  • Blair T. Longley (Hochelaga, PQ)

Date of Registration:
  • November 6, 2000

2008 election:
  • 8 candidates
  • 2,298 total votes
  • 13th of 19 parties

Notable History:
  • Between 2000 and 2004, 90% of contributions to the marijuana party were made under a legal scheme known as "Longley's Loophole." Under the scheme, the contributor could define how the contributions were to be used, even in a way that was of direct benefit to the contributor.
Biggest Issues:
  • Two policy statements are written on the website: Legalize marijuana. Legalize revolution.

Intriguing statement on website:
  • "People who are Members of the Party, or people who are Officers or Agents of this Party, have NO obligations to endorse nor vote for its Candidates. They have an independent right to vote, and to vote strategically, as they decide. Candidates are not obliged to agree with other Candidates or the Leader. We make no efforts to collectivize. We operate in decentralized ways."

Extraordinary statements on website:
It is interesting to note that the Marijuana Party website can be edited by any candidate, official agent or ‘regular marijuana party activist.’
  • The world is controlled by huge lies, backed up with lots of violence, and that is automatically getting worse! It is a runaway fascist plutocracy juggernaut ... Since the world is controlled by the people who are the "best" at dishonesty, backed up with violence, we actually are living in a Bizarro Mirror World!
