Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Liberal 1 Year Report Card

The Trudeau Liberals returned to power on October 19, 2015. In the last year they’ve done some things I’ve disagreed with, and some things I approve of. I’ll list them from memory, because if I can’t recall them, they probably didn’t leave too much of a negative or positive impression:

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Why The Drug War Is Inherently Racist and Pro-War

Richard Nixon was not a good man. The people around him weren’t good either. They intentionally lied about the harm of hard drugs (and ‘soft’ drugs too), in order to concoct a reason for law enforcement officers to harass and jail African Americans and anti-war protesters. “We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be […] . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: Why The Drug War Is Inherently Racist and Pro-War

Writings of J. Todd Ring: Hemp Revolution

Hemp has enormous potential to help us build an ecologically sound society. It can replace most uses of tree-derived paper products and lumber, thus saving vast amounts of forests. It can eliminate and replace most uses of synthetic fibres, which are used in clothing, furniture, carpets and textiles, and virtually all uses of plastics, . . . → Read More: Writings of J.

Wait, that title is supposed to be, “Minister Comments On Drugs“. Wait, maybe, “Minister Makes Comments About Drugs”, is less ambiguous?

The Happy Wanderer: NDP Not Legalizing Pot

The NDP seems to want to lag behind the Liberals when it comes to the smart on drugs plan.

War on drugs. NDP vs. Liberals.

I’ve been increasingly hard on the Liberals since the first days post-Chretien. So much so, I’ve gravitated towards the NDP.

Did Paul McCartney’s right-wing wife stop him smoking pot?

I found the reason Paul McCartney stopped smoking pot ‘to be a better parent’ to be a laughable excuse. He’s been smoking pot for at least 48 years, through three marriages and five children, and the family situation has never bothered his pot habits before now.

Looking at his current wife’s history, once married to . . . → Read More: Did Paul McCartney’s right-wing wife stop him smoking pot?
