Ignorant Congressman Mark Souder threatens Canada.
An influential U.S. Congressman is predicting a trade slowdown if Canada decriminalizes marijuana possession.
“I believe there’ll be more searches at the border both coming and going from Canada, which hurts our trade,” said Republican Mark Souder, in an interview to be broadcast Sunday on CTV’s Question Period. “Trade is the anchor of our relationship and our friendship and anything that slows that down, complicates that.”
Souder is chair of the House Government Reform Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy, and Human Resources.
Souder is such a tool. I mean, to continue to threaten Canada this way is not only bad foreign policy, but it really makes you look stupid. After all, private possession of up to 4 ounces of marijuana is legal in Alaska, and Chicago is seriously looking at decriminalization. Are we going to threaten to block trade with Chicago?
