So, let me get this straight.

The United States significantly tightened up border security with Canada in 
light of the terrorist threat after 9/11.

But if Canada decriminalizes possession of small amounts of marijuana, the 
U.S. will "really, really, really" get tough on border security.

So, the threat of an invasion of mildly stoned Canadians is more serious 
than the threat of al-Qaida?

My last few vacations have been in the United States, and I have always 
thoroughly enjoyed the Americans I met.

But how do they get such wacky political leaders?

(They got them in exactly the same way we did. It's called voting and 
democracy and other things like that.)
