Stephen Harper's Criminally Irresponsible Reefer Madness
As we all know Stephen Harper has an unhealthy obsession with marijuana, handcuffs, and Justin Trudeau. Not necessarily in that order.
He has no respect for science, and has never seen a scientist he didn't want to muzzle.
But even by his low standards this is criminally irresponsible.
Conservative Leader Stephen Harper expressed his vehement opposition to marijuana once again, calling it "infinitely worse" than tobacco at a campaign stop in Montreal on Saturday.
"Tobacco is a product that does a lot of damage. Marijuana is infinitely worse and it's something that we do not want to encourage," Harper said.
Because I'd really like to know where he got that one from eh? Did one of the voices in his head whisper that suggestion? Or did he pull it out of his rear orifice?
For sadly, and not for the first time, he doesn't know what he's talking about.
Public health experts are slamming Stephen Harper’s assertion that marijuana is “infinitely worse” than tobacco, saying the remark has no basis in scientific fact.
According to Dr. David Hammond, while there are significant health risks associated with marijuana—especially when smoked by young people or pregnant women—there is “no comparison” between the dangers it poses and the harm caused by tobacco.
In fact he couldn't be more dangerously wrong.
Dr. Robert Schwartz said each year tobacco kills more people in Canada than alcohol, motor vehicles, firearms, illegal drug use, and HIV put together.
So wrong in fact, that one really has to wonder whether he's mentally fit to remain in office, or is on drugs himself...
Because as you know he's quite a boozer eh? And a hypocrite.
But then as we also know, he's only regurgitating his reefer madness talking points because he believes the truth is what he says it is. He is a pathological liar.
And he's just whipping himself into a frenzy to try to smear Justin Trudeau. Again...
He'd rather keep marijuana in the hands of the criminals than have it controlled by the government. Because he hates government, his Cons ARE criminals. They don't call him Boss Harper for nothing.
And he loves pleasuring his rabid base, and no doubt himself, by throwing even more Canadians, especially younger ones, in jail...
For he does love handcuffs, and muzzles. And he'd do us ALL in his dungeon if he could. *Shudder*
And of course these days he has yet another reason to peddle dangerous disinformation.
And that's because his Australian attack monkey Lynton Crosby, the one who brought him back from the dead, is also a huge lobbyist for the tobacco industry...
As we all know he's running Canada these days, and poisoning it with bigotry.
And Steve is so grateful, he'd do anything to pleasure his toxic Aussie ape for helping him hijack this election.
At least that's how I think the anti-Harper forces should frame this question. Because let's not forget with most Canadians supporting decriminalization.
His threats to criminalize marijuana even further could do him great damage.
And let's be clear. A leader who would put his depraved lust for power before the health of his own people, and intentionally seek to mislead them, is clearly unfit to remain in office. And should probably be jailed.
And it is reefer madness...
So young Canadians, let that Con horror story be a good lesson, and a wakeup call.
Get out and vote, strategically, for anyone but Harper.
Or you could go to jail, just for smoking marijuana.
And meet him in your nightmares...
