The Con Clown Kellie Leitch Vows to Re-Criminalize Marijuana
Just a few days ago Kellie Leitch was blubbering about how sorry she was to have hurt Canadians with her racist barbaric cultural practices campaign.
And her foul snitch line.
But now she's found another way to hurt Canadians.
And send even more of them to jail.
By vowing to criminalize marijuana again if she ever becomes Prime Minister.
"With regards to marijuana, I feel strongly about this," she said. "We know this is a dangerous drug that has a huge impact on the developing child brain and adolescent brain."
"I don't want to see any child put in harm's way by having access to a dangerous drug," she said.
Claiming she wants to protect kids. Even though one of the main goals of legalizing weed is to control it, and keep it out of the hands of children.
Violating the sacred principles of harm reduction, even though she's a doctor, and the Canadian Medical Association has made its position clear.
In a commentary published in Monday's issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal, addiction doctors describe the negative aspects of prohibiting cannabis use, such as fuelling the illegal drug trade and the high costs and harms associated with policing and prosecuting people.
And blabbing on sanctimoniously about the dangers of the Killer Weed, while ignoring all the deaths caused by the involvement of criminal gangs.
As well as the fact that her campaign manager Nick Kouvalis was recently busted for driving and drinking.
And she should be more concerned about controlling binge drinking among young Canadians which is a real problem.
Instead of trying to send even more young people and other Canadians to jail, or scarring their lives with a criminal record, like her depraved former leader did...
Who couldn't have been more hypocritical. Or more evil.
Or for that matter, as the Con-friendly Tim Powers points out, instead of condemning her party to irrelevancy.
Conservatives can howl at the moon, as they did in the last election, and stand pat on the criminalization of marijuana, or they can take a strong, mature, proactive role in dealing with this inevitability
The worst thing Conservatives can continue to do is retain their 2015 electoral position. Coming across as a bunch of prudes in poorly fitting blue suits with bad buzz cuts will see them get rolled.
But then the only logical explanation for Leith's reefer madness, must be that she wants her snitch line back.
And the good news?
Leitch will never be either a Con leader, or a Canadian prime minister.
And if she had any decency, which I doubt.
She should end her absurd candidacy, and disappear into richly deserved oblivion.
Before she hurts even more Canadians.
And makes even more of a fool out of herself...
