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?
