As an American addiction psychiatrist, I highly praise the members of the 
Canadian Senate Committee on Illegal Drugs. They have recommended 
legalizing marijuana and regulating it via an integrated public health 
policy. Their report is common sense eloquently articulated by political 
leaders, a rare and precious commodity in our troubled times. I sincerely 
hope your nation follows their recommendations as my nation's leadership on 
this issue qualifies it as certifiably insane.

(Thanks Doc, but we think our Senate is a little nutty, too.)
