Note: Parenthetical remark by the Sun editor, headline by newshawk.


Your parenthetical response to the letter published in the Dec. 3 Sun from 
Kirk Muse, wherein he stated decriminalization does nothing, but 
legalization is the answer, was amusing. You offered: "We don't want Canada 
to go to pot." Considering almost 90% of Canadians surveyed recently are in 
favour of major changes to the laws prohibiting marijuana, and that 14% of 
Canadians are willing to admit they are ongoing cannabis consumers, it 
would appear that your comment is phrased in the wrong tense. Canada has 
already "gone to pot."

(Not when 86% are NOT ongoing consumers.)
