Good thing Stephen Harper wants to jail non-violent first time drug
offenders, with his excessively broad C-15 bill. An 18-year-old
passing a joint to his 17-year-old girlfriend could be nailed for
"trafficking" and get six months in jail. Not only will pot smokers
have a life-ruining vacation in jail, the able-bodied young men we
incarcerate will probably join gangs, for protection. Once out,
they'll actually be the criminals they weren't when they went in.
