Comment: Parenthetical remarks by the Sun editor, headline by hawk


COMMENTING ON the large number of underage smokers at the recent pot
rally ("No Token Presence," Sept. 8), Sgt. Garet Bonn of the Edmonton
police said: "Our liquor laws don't allow anyone under 18 to drink in
public, but here, we're noticing a lot of teens doing illegal drugs
and I don't have the resources to do anything about it without
starting a riot." That's because liquor is legal and pot is illegal,
Sgt. Bonn. May I suggest if the good officer is genuinely concerned
about this issue, then he take his head out of the sand and joins the
calls to legalize this herb?
