I do not think the situation of Mr. Cauchon being pragmatic and discussing 
openly the laws of the land about marijuana is ridiculous. I also do not 
think that a youthful toke on a joint automatically eliminates one from 
ever attaining public office or "making good." Nor do I think that it is 
appropriate that Canadians are punished so harshly for something that 
should not even be a crime.
