I keep hearing Conservative attack ads on the radio against Justin 
Trudeau's stance on pot, which is the only thing I like about the 
man. He is a famous name, unproven, and I believe he has no business 
running a party, let alone the country. However, as more states in 
the U.S. are legalizing the recreational use of marijuana, it is 
worth noting that it's less harmful than alcohol or cigarettes. 
Properly regulated, its sales would be a huge revenue source for the 
government. The Tories' ad says young people, could get it easier. 
That's laughable. It couldn't be easier to get now unless it was 
delivered to your door.

(Trudeau doesn't have a plan to legalize pot. All he's said is that 
he'd do it. He hasn't given any indication of the contents of a 
Liberal law legalizing marijuana. You can't just say, "Poof, pot's legal")
