Reefer Madness? Pot Mountie Charged with Assault.

RCMP corporal Ron Francis is in lockup, charged with assaulting a fellow police officer on the weekend.  The 21-year veteran, now suffering from PTSD, is being held for a psychiatric assessment.

I'm no expert on these things but I don't think you often hear of potheads charged with assault.  Who knows?

It's a measure of how low our discourse has fallen that the poor bastard is the "pot smoking Mountie" and not "a Mountie with PTSD".

My goodness. So there is one way to get a mountie charged with a crime: When they want to eat their own.
