Yet another article in today's G&M - page 3 no less - about pot smoking politicians. Recently Trudeau admitting to having a puff since becoming an MP.
I totally support legalization of marijuana, and I don't care if you were a junkie as a teenager, but I think all politicians should be law-abiding while in office, and, ideally, maybe even a few years prior. Is that so much to ask?
I remember once, in my early 20s, sitting with friends when a joint was being passed around. One friend got up and left because she was thinking about becoming a cop and didn't feel right being in the same room with people breaking the law. She was just thinking about it.
That's the kind of politicians I want. Once you start thinking about getting into politics, you've got to clean up your act.
Which is why I prefer to just blog about politics and write them letters!
