Recently Stephen Harper reiterated, in his typical supercilious
manner, that marijuana would never be legalized by his government
because it is - according to him - 'infinitely worse' than tobacco.

In Harper's mind everything must be categorized as either 'good' or
'evil' and then exploited for political gain.

How does his holier-than-thou stance on the pervasive use of pot
address the associated problems?

Why doesn't he take another step into his ideological fantasy world
and try to reduce the number of unplanned teenage pregnancies by
making pre-marital sex illegal?

His pot policies only insure criminal organizations will continue to
rake in exorbitant tax-free profits.

Canada needs a prime minister who can cooperatively work with others
to formulate realistic solutions for Canadian problems, not a
self-righteous demigod.

One thing seems certain: illicit drug dealers will vote
