There was a time in Canadian history when it was possible to elect a politician who wasn’t an alcohol drinker (Gardiner, for example). Now it may still be possible to elect someone who doesn’t drink coffee.
It’s time to end prohibition on marijuana. This isn’t said to support the Liberals, it’s to support what will create the best society for Canada. The Drug War is an American political invention, boosted by Reagan, and it’s a social catastrophe that needlessly destroys lives at a faster pace than serious drug abuse.
If you knew me even eleven years ago, you’d realize this is the opposite of what sort of legislation you’d have thought I would support. I’ve met more people, looked at more evidence, and listened to the growing list of experts who can clearly demonstrate the insanity in pursuing criminal charges against users of marijuana and some other forms of chemicals. Would you ever support incarceration for coffee drinkers if it was learned that coffee seriously harms people and impairs their ability to drive or think clearly? I would not.
BONUS partisan jab:
I’ve seen photos of Stephen Harper in a Tim Hortons! *gasp* #HardCoreCaffeineUser Harper doesn’t support Harm Reduction, or Carb Reduction either.
