Federal Conservative Government Going To War Against Pot Smokers
Tony Clement, Health Minister
Canada's Conservative government has decided to borrow from the politics of the 1930's and 'get tough with reefer smokers'! Stephen Harper's crew of fundamentalist right wingnuts are going to announce a $64 million anti-drug initiative next week that aims to get-tough on 'illegal' drugs in Canada.
So while we have record levels of REAL crime in the nation, precious police resources are going to be dedicated to chasing Canadians who may use a little recreational marijuana. Harper needs scapegoats to blame the ills of the nation on. Pot smokers likely will fill that bill for the Tories.
