Trudeau the Leftie Beau

Now that Canada has elected the dreamy sex symbol Justin Trudeau, of the Liberal Party, as its new Prime Minister, we should expect changes to recreational drug use throughout the continent in the coming years. As part of his platform, he has vowed to legalize recreational cannabis.

However let’s not hold our breath in anticipation of the wafting aroma of kaneh bosm … It took the leader of the so-called free world exactly ten years longer than Canada to exhibit its leadership in legalizing gay marriage. The Canadians did so in 2005, we in 2015. If that is a measure of how far we lag behind our more progressive neighbor, we should expect full decriminalization and demilitarization of entheogens in America by 2025. I guess it’s better late than never.
