    Our reactionary idiot PM is caught in a time warp

    Last time I checked, the other ones were, well, dismal failures.


    Shortly after taking office early last year, the Conservatives decided not to go ahead with a Liberal bill to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana.

    Since then, the number of people arrested for smoking pot has jumped dramatically in several Canadian cities, in some cases jumping by more than one third.

    Oh, and that law would also include outlawing safe injection sites for drug users in places like Vancouver where the number of heroin addicts is the highest in the country.

    Advocates say safe-injection sites help to prevent the spread of serious diseases, including AIDS and Hepatitis by preventing users from sharing needles while opponents say the sites simply promote illegal drug use.

    I can't wait for the next federal election where we can toss this idiot out of power.

    Sir John A is not amused, trust me.

    And the alternative is the Liberal party? We're doomed.

    The traditional war on drugs, the brainchild of Nancy Reagan and seemingly resuscitated by Stephen Harper, is a waste of time and money and resources.

    Local and federal governments need to legalize drugs and tax them. Provide clean needles and the safe injection centers for drug abusers.

    Who the hell cares? It's only Canada.

    Yeah, you're right. Illegal drug abuse doesn't happen in the United States.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    When I think of SJ's intelligent posters, Hank doesn't come to mind.
