Pot - So it begins. Blood has finally been spilled in the marijuana war.

I think every Canadian should look in the mirror right now and ask why four 
of Canada's finest have just died in our service.

The only two possible ways to prevent this in the future are to stop the 
use of marijuana or to legalize it.

We have tried to stop the use for more than a generation and we have only 
achieved the opposite of our intentions.

I think that Canada is now a mature enough of a country to safely and 
effectively regulate the sale and use of marijuana.
