This is a ridiculous waste of US law enforcement resources, but you already knew I’d say that.
Even more entertaining is this part of a Reuters story on the matter:
“Marijuana is a touchy issue in U.S.-Canada relations, with White House officials warning recently that a plan by Ottawa to decriminalize possession of small amounts of pot could lead to tighter security on the border.”
So let me get this straight. The threat of foreign terrorists that US authorities are so fond of overblowing – that has the border at one level of security. But, if Ottawa allows folks to carry a little pot without fear of going to jail, then we’ll have to step it up a notch?
Please, please tell me – to whom does this make sense?
