Looks like Little Stephen is taking a page out of the money crazed American approach to the war on drugs. That or he has a thing for Mr. Mackey on South Park.
This plan is costly and doesn't work, studies, studies, and more academic studies have proven the drug war to be wrong. It's basically a pork barrelling of funds into the military/police industrial complex.
As someone who often works with, and helps out teenagers who appear to be suffering from the effects of marijuana. I think that resources would be best spent on dealing with drugs that actually cause crime, besides the munchies. Targeting marijuana is stupid. Legalization and state control of distribution is the answer, and only a progressive govenment would have the forsight to do that.
What I like about this policy is that it drives more people to the Liberals, and despite all our idiotic infighting, we are still tied with the Conservatives. Canadian's are NOT stupid people, we tend to be more compassionate and rational. We don't think its right to throw a drug addicted person in jail (where they would do more drugs), when they could be treated for their problem. Harm reduction and legalization, with state control of distribution is my solution to the problem. What is really good is that most Canadians know this!
