RE BARRIE pot bust: In a nation where our elected politicians feel it is 
perfectly acceptable to profit from the sale of drugs such as booze and 
smokes, I find it rather ironic that these same politicians are so shocked 
and appalled that someone else would take it upon themselves to do the same 
by growing and selling pot.  Apparently it's okay to sell drugs and run 
gambling houses just as long as you are elected to do so.  It's no small 
wonder the general public is treating this whole affair as one big joke - 
because it is.  I wonder if they got start up capital from the HRDC.
