The Sun had a little ditty on April 18 about Stockwell Day having used
marijuana in his younger years.

What is it with the mass misconception about marijuana use and why
would anyone care if he used it, even now? Every police officer knows
that the drug most associated with violence, poor judgment, poor
health and irresponsible behaviour is alcohol. Don't you think it's
time we started asking politicians about their alcohol consumption?
Any and every sober alcoholic knows that alcohol pumps up the ego and
makes for poor judgment.

It's dangerous and far more troublesome than marijuana.

The most one can expect from a person on marijuana is that he or she
might break out the guitar and sing a round of Imagine by the late
John Lennon.
