I can't believe that some judge in Saskatoon sentenced Marc Emery to three 
months in jail for passing a joint. What is wrong with this country, where 
cops and judges place more focus on pot-smokers and weed-farmers than women 
being abducted and murdered?

Judging by this loopy sentence, let's see, I've had about 7,300 joints 
passed to me -- that's 1,825 years' worth of jail time in that puritan of a 
judge's opinion (I've probably passed the same right back, so I guess 
double it). I hope he enjoys his whisky neat and Cuban when he gets home! 
Good thing all the drugs he likes are legal. It seems to me he should have 
a toke once in a while. Mellow out, dude!

When are we Gen-Xers going to take over and get rid of all this intolerant, 
religiously and puritanically motivated "morality"?
