Come on, this thing goes much wider than just 'green' Ranjeet. 

No. These people are greedy.

Something about the North American continent which gives you the impression of Virgin land ripe for exploitation.

No I meant it's much wider than just 'green' as in marijuana. I know greed is central to it.

You probably need to clarify more.

If you mean about the use of marijuana

I thought you were implying that it was the ease of growing green that was central to this phenomena when you said:

Money hungry people - check.

Land to grow marijuana - check

Trucks to smuggle drugs across border - check.

It's just pure greed!

 

Thing is, those guys are also dealing with coke, smack and meth.

I see what you mean:

Probably a combination of factors.

The plant is very easy to grow.

The more liberal laws of Canada in regards to marijuana. 

The huge market in the US.

The facilities already available amongst our people, such as the land/greenhouse to grow the stuff and the trucks to provide the logistics.

The fact that marijuana has been legalised in a lot of the US states has meant that revenues are probably  down for BC Bud. That is because marijuana can be grown in those US states.

There has probably been a shift into other drugs to make up the shortfall. 

Marijuana is also seen as a gateway drug which probably creates opportunities with coke, meth etc.

I believe that is what happened for Mexican smugglers. 

I am no expert on drugs as a good Sikh I refrain myself from even thinking about it.

However, it is interesting from a business perspective. Because in the end of the day it is a business,  it's just one that destroys peoples lives.

Yep, and with the harder addictive stuff, it's a business that expands and creates its own markets unlike any other product.

i forget what number i was on and if i am repeating myself (sorry if i am):

16.  that work/school is about having "fun", "chasing relationships/sexual relationships", and having an apathetic attitude to work/school.

work- you should act professionally and with highest ethical standards, and work honestly to earn your wage.  you should not have a bad attitude to work or the authority, deliberately mess around or slack or take unethical shortcuts.

same for school- school is ONLY for learning.  you should concentrate only on that, and only keep friends who are studious and have good morals.  forget about the "cool" kids, who are basically just wasteful idiots.  respect your teachers even if they are unpleasant.  you should appreciate the opportunity to get educated and not have a negative attitude towards it.  may the best of it that you can.

Op you refer to sexist aspects of culture. 

 

Humans know what's right and wrong, all humans do. One can watch TV and not get sucked in. It depends on your morals and whether you buy the sex crazed culture <banned word filter activated>. A balanced human would understand that casual sex, a preoccupation with fleeting, unmeaningful sex and viewing women as simply objects of pleasure is inaccurate, boring and a waste of a precious life. 

Not to mention Incredibly disrespectful to women. One need only to look at prominent women on the bhagti path in the past as well as inspirational female figures to know that women can be great, not simply sexy bimbos as we may be portrayed to be by mainstream media. 

Women should take a stand against sexism when it's encountered. Unfortinately, brown culture promotes sexist ideals to a great length, treating many women as kitchen slaves, inferior to men and many Punjabi guys have a habit of bit*ching about women's looks, slutshaming etc. Alot of domestic violence and abuse against women etc. Sexism is sexism whatever form it takes. 

 

One goes hand in hand with the other. Sexism presents itself in many ways.

Its not just the advertisements. Its also in the movies. Its so bloody sickening. The worst is they make the white guy look like a bumbling <banned word filter activated> while the woman is all knowing and all smart. In reality its the other way around.

The root cause of the problem is feminism. White men especially need to go back to their Church, organize themselves and throw out this crap.

The West needs a religious awakening.

    • Perhaps this is the key to the root cause of it all ? What does he think won't change ?  What if you or your wife feign a disease ? Will he come if his mom pretends she's on bed suffering with something ?  Basically something that will bring him back to home and let him stick there atleast for a few weeks , giving you and your wife time to mend the relationships and break the ice

      Thank you for your kind words. I’m sharing this because there maybe someone who has experienced similar anguish or as a warning to look out for. Perhaps a snapshot of a British born kid with Punjabi heritage and some Sikhi values tried to be instilled.  Upon reflection I was a more hands on Dad than my father was and yet I still feared and respected him. I believe that I may have been more informal and given greater freedom than I had to my son. To that degree I think I may have contributed to his stupidity. When I was his age I had been tempted to act out as he is doing now but I knew it was wrong. 3 of my peers didn’t stop and now 20 years later because of their dysfunctionality, sadly all 3 are divorced with kids run wild, health problems etc.  ‘My parents are getting fed up with his antics and I think it’s a matter of weeks before they snap and I get a call to say he’s left. He was involved in a car crash where as a passenger he was shunted from behind and had whiplash. The next evening he goes out from 10-2am and an exasperated grandmother lets him in.  ‘I went for an evening out with my family in the centre of a midlands city. As I was walking back to the car (approx 10.30pm) there was an ambulance ready with a stretcher. Just waiting. What a damning indictment that they expect carnage having seen it regularly, week after week.  That tragic tale of the 14 year old girl makes you want to weep. I realise that there may be a chance he comes to his senses but the world in which we live in has changed so dramatically I’m struggling to keep up with daily disbelief. I’ve been to 50 odd parties in the last 20 years and probably 3 out that there was a fight and today I hear it’s a regular occurrence. I see Punjabis in the midlands with turbans but a shaven beard. What idiots.  When I was about 17 there was a pretty Punjabi girl from a wealthy family at my college. There was a large presence of Muslims and Sikhs with the usual cliques and it was revealed she had a black boyfriend. He even collected her from college. Overnight she was castigated by everyone and within a few days she left and never returned. I don’t know what circumstances surrounded her life but today I don’t think nobody would raise an eyebrow.   
    • I KNOW I KNOW! Extremely old post but a link... Searchgurbani.com will answer this.  Home page, select 3 dot thing on top, click Dasam Granth, click prefered index search Punjabi or English and voila!  So far am reading Charitropakehyon, a few verses per day. 
    • When you are happy or laughing do you go asking for help? After all you are in those 'emotional states' temporarily before you are in another temporary state. They are caused by specific inputs (i.e a joke) that your 'wiring' interprets and responds to with an action like laughing, endorphin release etc. The same goes with 'anxiety' it's a product of your 'wiring' (or ego if you want to give a specific name, that voice inside your head, the me), and how it responds to stimuli / inputs. Does your eternal 'awareness' that observes the voice in your head suffer with anxiety, stress, laughter, joy etc? Nah. That was the way this fool dealt with emotions it didn't like. I (in a loose sense) just started to observe the emotions as a temporary thing that come and go, and if they deep down didn't make me better were just not welcome anymore in taking up my awareness. That voice in your head is not you. Read some Elkhart Tolle to understand a bit about that disfucntional voice in your head 
    • seems so ...maybe we can lift the good khalsa habits they have preserved and reintroduced them in our lives  such as that nitnemi attitude.
