    I did not know about the solitary. The entire thing is infuriating. Of course, as you know, not only do I think marijuana (and its seeds) should be legal, but solitary confinement should be banned as inhumane and psychologically and physiologically harmful.

      absolutely ! The RCMP was allowed to carry out a US warrant, enforce US law, in Canada, is beyond words.


      Torture is ALWAYS wrong, no matter who is doing it to whom.

      solitary confinement should be allowed only upon request of the prisoner, never by choice of the prison administration or guards.  (There are times when prisoners who are particularly suited for solitude and particularly at risk of attack from other prisoners request solitary.)
