Premier Clark, the born-again radical Liberal populist, blew it. No 
B.C. premier has shown such acute withdrawal symptoms from a 
longstanding issue. "I'm going to leave this (the marijuana 
legalization issue) to the federal government," she declared.

With all the political smoke coming out of Victoria, you would think 
she would welcome the opportunity to identify herself with the mellow 
majority who are in favour of legalizing cannabis. Perhaps Clark has 
decided to be less off-the-cuff-spontaneous after getting her fingers 
burnt by promoting that riotously naive idea about putting cameras in 
the courtrooms.
