Dear ARCH, Disability Law Centre:
I understand your purview includes Law Reform, please consider assisting our most unprotected, again.
I write to inform you regarding unconstitutional and illegal practices Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care, formerly, Oakridge. https://barbkueber.wordpress.com/2016/01/31/ontario-health-care/
Oakridge one of the experiments sites for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Ewen_Cameron “Cameron believed that mental illness was literally contagious – that if one came into contact with someone suffering from mental illness, one would begin to produce the symptoms of a mental disease. For example, something like rock music could be created by mentally ill people and would produce mentally ill people through infection, which in turn would be transmitted to the genes. Thus, this group would have to be studied and controlled as a contagious social disease. Police, hospitals, government, and schools would need to use the correct psychiatric authority to stop mental contagions from spreading. Cameron also hoped to generate families capable of using authority and techniques to take measures against mental illness, which would later be apparent in Cameron’s MKULTRA and MKDELTA experiments.”
Your medication(s) is an important part of your overall treatment at Waypoint.
STATEMENT – MEDICAL MARIJUANA
Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care (Waypoint) has taken the following position on the use of Medical Marijuana. This will serve to stand as current practice.
Waypoint acknowledges that patients may be prescribed medical marijuana, but upon review of the associated literature (i.e. the Canadian Psychiatric Association, the American Psychiatric Association, Federation of Medical Regulatory Authorities of Canada, the Canadian Medical Association, College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario) and in discussion with our peer hospitals Waypoint has decided that the use of medical marijuana will not be initiated for our patients.
However, if a patient is admitted and is currently using medical marijuana, and has a valid Health Canada ID Authorization Card for the use of medical marijuana, they will be given the option of switching to an alternative cannabinoid that is available for dispensing from the Pharmacy Formulary or another appropriate intervention as medically indicated for their condition. Proof of Authorization is to be photocopied and a copy placed on the patient’s Clinical Record.
Waypoint is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all patients, visitors and staff. As well, Waypoint strives to address and respect the needs of patients while adhering to applicable legislation and regulations. As such, and in keeping with the corporate policy – “Tobacco / Smoke Free Environment: Healthy, Safe and Caring”, medicinal marijuana is not to be smoked or ingested on Waypoint property.
UNACCEPTABLE! There is not one single synthetic cannabinoid pill you can push that works the same or even close!! and further, your chemicals do cause harm….
……your abuse of our most vulnerable, those you seem to believe you can do what ever you want to…your discrimination must end here and now.
Hopefully one day, you will be forced to stop pushing your ineffective and brain damaging pharmaceuticals on your victims.
