Coffee and Provocation

Uganda might get more tourism if they quit threatening to kill/imprison people based on orientation.

Yes, but that could be said about Montana too. Read the GOP state platform in that state >> http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_gays_in_montana

Sign me up for a platter of those LSD fish with a brownie chaser. Nothing like an awesome trip that lasts a REALLY long time!

Canada has always been a bit ahead of the US when it comes to common sense legislation - what I mean is that until recently, our politics were quite dry compared to your own. The craziness quotient seems to be several notches below the US government. (Which also is why I follow US politics closer than my own - your guys are WAY more entertaining).

What I'm getting to is that you'll have a hope of legalizing/decriminalizing marijuana after we do. And we will, it's just a matter of time.

We abolished slavery first, we give our people the medical care and assistance they need no matter who they are or where they come from or how much money they have, and we legalized teh gay so long ago most Canadians don't even know that gay marriage is protected here by federal laws.

Marijuana is next on the list, and thanks to our politicians getting unruly and trying to be all American Senator-y are using the issue to stand out. Once that happens, it's only a matter of time - imagine the flood of weed over the border if we legalized it.

Frankly it's always driven me nuts that I can legally give myself cancer with a cigarette or drink myself to death, but I can't smoke a joint which by comparison is a placebo.

Sorry for the length, but this is one of those common sense things that should have been dealt with years ago - imagine how much money both countries would save, removing the law enforcement, court time, legal aid and imprisonment costs for every person busted in possession of a particular weed. Billions and billions that could go to, I don't know, say health care?

Crazy, I know. Common sense, as we all know, is in short supply in government these days.
