Re "Feds too chilled out" (Mark Bonokoski, Sept. 12): This government
is either asleep at the wheel or the blinders are fully engaged where
legalized marijuana is concerned. Aside from the tide of problems
about to hit our parents and law enforcement, the PM has been mute on
the health concerns associated with regular pot use and focused
strictly on distribution and timing for this legislation. Pandering to
our youth in exchange for votes was a great strategy, but dealing with
the burnouts from this election promise will introduce an entirely
different challenge. I certainly hope our PM will sit down with his
young son and have this discussion with him, before introducing him to
pot, but then again, he will have 16 years to prepare.

(We doubt the PM, or any responsible parent, introduces their child to
pot. They have an honest discussion with them about its use, important
regardless of what the laws on marijuana consumption are.)
