Increases in opioid overdoses send a clear message. Our prime minister
needs to see it. The message is that more people are turning to drugs,
not away from them. A culture of using less drugs, prescription or
illegal, needs to be encouraged. Legalizing marijuana sends exactly
the wrong message. People need to learn to deal with life's stresses
without crutches. Justin Trudeau is supporting drug use, not
condemning it. And that is the wrong message.
