Canada: A lawmaker who likes to get high

Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau thinks it’s funny that he’s a known pothead.

Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau thinks it’s funny that he’s a known pothead, said Ezra Levant. As the son of one of our most respected prime ministers, Socialist Pierre Trudeau, you’d think he would have a solid grounding in foreign and domestic policy, and a fair measure of gravitas. But no. The only issue he speaks on with any “interest or passion” is marijuana. The young Trudeau has not only admitted to smoking weed while a member of Parliament—though he claims the last time was three years ago—but he is actually proud of it. He says he’s “more embarrassed about the revelation that he doesn’t drink coffee.” Given that marijuana is still an illegal drug, his attitude is both irresponsible and hypocritical. Trudeau now says he favors legalization, but just a few years ago he voted with the Conservatives to mandate minimum prison sentences for drug offenses. “He wanted jail terms for the little people. But for himself, well, he’s a child of privilege.” Born a millionaire, he never had to worry about failing a mandatory drug test at work, or affording a lawyer if he was caught with pot. For this “silver spoon liberal,” drug use is just a laugh. For the rest of us, he’s the one who looks like a joke.
