Turns out the Conservatives "tough on crime" bill is a "tough on
so-called drug-crime." Americans are coming to the point where just
about every last mile has been wrung out of the tough on drugs
failure. I'm hoping Canadians are past that. Filling the jails in
America has not stopped a single person from using drugs and left the
trade in the hands of ever more ruthless characters hardened by the
American injustice system. It's time for Canadians to seriously
consider repealing prohibition to take back the streets from the drug
criminals just like we did to alcohol criminals of the past.

(The idea is to have fewer drug addicts, not more.)
