Victoria -- Re Parliamentary Committee To Recommend New Pot Law (Dec.11):

Randy White, Alliance vice-chairman of the Parliamentary committee on the 
use of non-medical drugs, estimates 30 grams of marijuana to be worth $50 
to $80 -- an amount he considers too high.

Too high? More like the sale of the century!

As many Canadians can attest, typical prices for an ounce of pot (28 grams) 
range from $200 to $240. That the vice-chairman of a parliamentary 
committee and a vociferous critic of recreational drug use is so laughably 
out of touch ought to make us question the validity of his committee's 
research and conclusions.

Thirty grams for $80 -- dude, you've been sold some bad dope.
