OMG:

Not sure what scares me more about the 22 Minutes video of the host asking Justin Trudeau to smoke pot.

That this has now become socially acceptable to ask a Head of State to do drugs. OR That Justin just starts laughing and does not really care.

  4. Just a couple clarifications since nobody seems to have pointed these out:

    1. That is an older video. It has to have been after summer 2013 (because it refers to McKay as Justice Minister) but before this past summer since it makes no reference to the election (which it would if the election had been called). Thus, Trudeau was still the third party opposition leader, not that that changes things.

    2. the Prime Minister is NOT THE HEAD OF STATE. God, please, anybody who has any understanding of our political system should understand this point.

    Furthermore, Mark Critch is a comedian - it isn't like he is an influential journalist in the same leagues as Coyne, Hebert, or Wells. He OBVIOUSLY did that as a joke. I'm really just surprised that somebody actually interpreted that video to suggest that handing a politician drugs is somehow socially acceptable (whether you are pro- or anti-legalization, it is still illegal as of right now and when that video was made). Comedians purposely do things that are NOT socially acceptable to get laughs.

  5. Prime Minister isn't the Head of State, and Trudeau isn't even the PM yet.

    ...Which was totally the point of your post, I know. (sarcasm)

    Call me somebody starts talking about smoking crack with the Queen, THEN I'll get pissed off.

  6. It's always been acceptable to ask a Prime Minister to do drugs when they are legal drugs, like alcohol, or coffee. It's also been acceptable for tobacco until recently, and even now it might still look acceptable if it was say some fancy cigar. Since weed is close to be legal and is also close (or above) in most young people's mind to the level of respectability of the legal drugs, this is hardly surprising.
