As Harper Gets Tough on Pot, Obama Chills

Stephen Harper wants tougher sentences and mandatory imprisonment for growing even a single marijuana plant in a bid to ensure full employment for Canadian prison guards.

Harper's announcement came just a day after Obama's attorney general, Eric Holder, announced federal drug agents would no longer raid medical marijuana dispensaries in places where they're legal under state law.

Quite a few states have either decriminalized simple possession of marijuana or reduced it to a traffic-ticket style misdemeanour. But Stevie's pretty sure that Reefer Madness is a documentary.

So, while Stevie advances his social conservative agenda, Obama is beginning to dismantle George w. Bush's.
