The federal New Democrats have lost their second pro-marijuana B.C. candidate in a matter of days.
Vancouver-Quadra candidate Kirk Tousaw, a lawyer and former campaign director for the B.C. Marijuana Party, resigned Friday afternoon. […]
Marijuana advocate Dana Larsen resigned as the NDP’s candidate for West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast this week after online videos surfaced showing him smoking marijuana and dropping LSD. […]
[Gerry Scott, the NDP’s B.C. campaign director] said the party has no issue with candidates advocating less restrictive laws for marijuana, but felt there was a distinction when videos of a candidate using the drug were freely available.
Um, Gerry, I’d like to introduce to you the Republican governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Hmmm… Looks like the U.S. doesn’t hold the patent on silliness in political campaigns. Only difference is that our politicians admit to doing drugs and then never talk about drugs again.
