Little known Canadian Parties
Not too long ago, I did a humourous (okay, well, I thought it was humourous, though Dawn was the only to comment) post making pot shots at the four major parties running in Canada's upcoming election in January, and even more pot shots at the leaders of said parties.
So, speaking of pot, I'm sure some of you might be flabberghasted to know that Canada has an officially registered party, the Marijuana Party of Canada, whose goals, amongst others, is to liberate pot, to make it fully legal admidst all the factsTM, fed to us by various conservative bodies. Even the Liberal Party of Canada supports at least decriminilization.
But this post is not about the political ramifications of a stand for or against pot. Rather, it is about an amusing tidbit I heard on the news on the way to work this morning in the wee hours (yes, I was actually awake enough to remember). It seems that in the Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge (under construction) riding, the candidate is a fellow by the name of Dan Banov. A supporter of legalization, Dan has NEVER SMOKED POT IN HIS LIFE. Wow.
He's from British Columbia.
He's never smoked pot.
But he's in favour of legalizing it.
Strikes me as the "facts" supporting it's criminalized status are a little askew.
That is all.
