I wonder if Stephen Harper and the neo-cons will ever face reality, 
and admit that the war on drugs is an abject failure and stop 
throwing away our tax money into this bottomless pit. If pot was 
regulated, like liquor or tobacco, and sold in specific outlets, who 
have a vested interest in keeping their licenses and therefore would 
only sell to age-appropriate patrons, you would end this problem of 
kids having easy access to it overnight. It seems to me that money 
fighting the war on marijuana could be better spent on education and 
rehabilitation programs.

matter of which government.)
