Peter MacKay and the Great War on Marijuana and the Police
I suppose it was too good to be true. Most things in Harperland are like that eh?
Any good idea that sticks its head above the ground is mown down by the ghastly Cons.
So one moment I'm pleasantly surprised by the RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson, telling a reporter that marijuana use is not a big deal.
“I don’t think marijuana usage is as big a deal as it used to be. It’s still vulnerable to exploitation to organized crime, but you know, less and less as it becomes more and more commercially available,” he says.
And the next moment I'm forced to endure the sight of the hapless Con Peter MacKay claiming that the Commissioner is wrong, and marijuana is a deadly threat.
Justice Minister Peter MacKay says he disagrees with the head of the RCMP that smoking pot isn't as big a deal as it once was, arguing young people in particular are "very negatively affected" by marijuana use.
"We know that there are young people in particular who are very negatively affected by marijuana use. We know that it can have a very severe impact on early childhood development. We know it certainly isn’t a motivator, it doesn’t make people want to get up and go out and lead productive lives," MacKay said.
And sounding like the crown prosecutor in the absurd movie Reefer Madness...
Or like his crazed leader.
When in fact Paulson is right. The police should be focusing less on charging pot users and more on impaired driving.
He’s more concerned with eradicating impaired driving – and that means setting court-accepted standards for limits on both alcohol and drugs.
And Peter MacKay is hardly an example when it comes to cracking down on booze.
When as we know he's the poster boy for binge drinking...
Which is as I have pointed out before, is a far greater problem, and far more dangerous than marijuana.
And the only reason MacKay is blowing smoke out of his bong, or his bung hole, is that his filthy Cons and their freakish leader are trying to use marijuana to destroy Justin Trudeau.
With perverted and misleading ads like this one...
Which say more about the Cons and their filthy friends.
And definitely more about their depraved leader...
Than they do about Trudeau.
Especially since Justin's proposal to legalize marijuana would make the drug LESS not more available to kids.
And take it out of the hands of organized crime.
And the good news? Most Canadians agree with Paulson.
Earlier this year, an Ipsos Reid poll suggested 70 per cent of Canadians want to see the current pot laws at least relaxed — and one in three Canadians back full legalization.
And now that the head of the RCMP has made his views clear, the Con's Great War on Marijuana looks even more ridiculous.
Or even more like MADNESS...
Which is of course great eh?
Because anything that makes Stephen Harper look even crazier than he already is can only do him even more damage.
And of course you know what I think of Peter MacKay...
Where did those ghastly reefer maniacs come from?
How soon can we get rid of them?
And while I pray to Saint Bob Marley for deliverance from this Con Babylon.
I'd like to dedicate this nifty remix of the Christian group Sonseed's Jesus is My Friend.
To the freakish Stephen Harper and the idiot Dumbo....
