Re Minister Says Pot Campaign Not An Attack On Leader, Aug.

Health Minister Rona Ambrose is pleading with the Canadian Medical
Association to join the Conservatives' anti-drug campaign, a request
that the CMA and other like bodies have declined, saying that the
issue has become too political. Ambrose blames Liberal Leader Justin
Trudeau for making marijuana a political issue. Enough has been said
about how ridiculous the government's accusations are, particularly
given the findings that even the CMA will admit to about marijuana
use, addiction and access. Perhaps we should take Ms. Ambrose's claims
and accusations with a grain of salt, as well as question if Stephen
Harper has the right people for the job in his cabinet.
