I keep hearing Conservative attack ads on the radio against Justin 
Trudeau's stance on pot, which is the only thing I like about the man.

He is a famous name, unproven, and I believe he has no business 
running a party, let alone the country.

However, as more states in the U.S. are legalizing the recreational 
use of marijuana, it is worth noting that it's less harmful than 
alcohol or cigarettes. Properly regulated, its sales would be a huge 
revenue source for the government.

The Tories' ad says young people, could get it easier. That's 
laughable. It couldn't be easier to get now unless it was delivered 
to your door.

(Trudeau doesn't have a plan to legalize pot. All he's said is that 
he'd do it. He hasn't given any indication of the contents of a 
Liberal law legalizing marijuana. You can't just say, "Poof, pot's legal.")
