    Default Toke in Peace, Medpot Marc

    It is with great sadness that I report that my friend (and yours) of many years passed away last night at 10:15 PM EDT in an Ottawa hospital.

    Toke in Peace, Medpot Marc.

    I do not fail -- I succeed at finding out what does not work.

    Google Marc and "John Turmel" to see just how important their court victories were for Canadian patients. Stuff like increased plant counts with no sub-limits on how many could be flowering at one time; or, less stringent requirements for renewing exemptions and licenses. Marc's loss will be deeply felt.

    Sad to say, but it looks like medpot.net did not survive without Marc. This evening the page shows an "Account Suspended" message instead of the usual website that was there this afternoon. My guess is Marc was making monthly payments, and when the payment didn't get made for May, they shut the site down.

    There had been talk of someone possibly taking over and carrying on, but I think we all know that was a fantasy. No one would have been willing to put in as much time and money as Marc had.

    I just saw that message myself.

    Marc had mentioned in the past that he was paying a monthly rate for the site.
