I have enjoyed recent exposes of hypocrisy and dishonesty among 
political elites. But, in the case of Mayor Rob Ford and family, I 
see Canada's drug laws as the ass.

Surely ridicule over the alleged use or sale of street drugs is as 
cruel as demonizing homosexual intimacy. Criminal records for drug 
use should be erased. We should not discriminate against those who 
are caught, when so many others are not.

Social exclusion over drug use is as two-faced as Canada's current 
practice of excluding violent opponents of apartheid in South Africa.
