Group Description

eNDProhibition Alberta is the Alberta Chapter of eNDProhibition, the anti-prohibition wing of Canada's NDP. Members of eNDProhibition receive a lapel pin, a free subscription to our quarterly newsletter, & access to our email discussion list.

We advocate ending Canada's failed "war on drugs" & a non-punitive system based on accurate education, harm reduction, regulated access & responsible use. We support federal NDP policies on legalizing cannabis & work to promote their adoption within each provincial NDP party. We feel that Canada's war on drugs is inconsistent with the founding principles of the NDP, "The creation of a legal system must not be based, as is the present one, upon vengeance & fear, but upon an understanding of human behaviour..." was a principal enshrined in the 1933 Regina Manifesto. Waging a "war on drugs" is inconsistent with the principle that "peace must prevail over war" outlined in the 1983 Statement of Principles adopted by the 12th Federal NDP Convention in Regina.

The former leader of the Marijuana Party of Alberta started this yahoo group. Ken (780 637-1336) was the Marijuana Party of Canada's candidate for Edmonton Strathcona in the 2000 election and got 814 votes. In 2003 Tooker Gomberg & Jack Layton convinced him to rejoin the NDP. In 2004 as a candidate for the nomination in Edmonton East Ken lost by a mere 24 votes (ha). This yahoogroup is for any announcement relevant to those living here, democratic socialism or cannabis.

eNDProhibition encourages each provincial NDP party to support the non-punitive drug policies of the federal NDP. Too many of Canada's provincial NDP parties wrongly continue to seek more imprisonment & expanding the drug war. These prohibitionist policies go against the spirit of truth & education that the NDP stands for.
