Generation Trudeau: Will pot legalization be Justin’s greatest legacy?

David MenziesMission Specialist
 

Marijuana is very much in the news these days and as Justin Trudeau tries to fulfill his campaign promise to legalize it, we wondered what members of Generation Trudeau had to say about it.

(LANGUAGE WARNING:)

Watch as we head out after dark to see if this demographic is in favour of pot legalization.

Not only is support for this particular Trudeau policy fairly unanimous, this group also thinks it just might be Trudeau’s greatest legacy if he gets the job done.

In the sixties it used to be said that you shouldn’t trust anyone over 30. I think we need to update this old saying to, don’t trust anyone in government.

Jack Pallance legal weed will cost a fortune with the taxes, in Colorado it costs twice as much as on the street , with Justin and the libs the taxes will be ridiculous and you will buy it from someone else anyways. He will not fully legalize so you can grow your own, that would not make him any money.

Yay, get it going now we’ll need a good stone to kill the pain of our economic and energy poverty.

The voters should decide yes or no.That would have changed the election big time.
Jill you are correct,

They say ‘youth are the future & hope of the nation’. However, after watching this video, I believe Canada has little hope left & dark future with its youth.

So all those convicted of marijuana crimes, even traffickers will have their records expunged?
All the other countries are sure to agree with this.

Was it just me or did everyone on the video – including Menzies by the end – seem to be either drunk, high, or both?

I’m surprised that the video didn’t address the elephant in the room. While it may be harmless for people to consume marijuana in the privacy of their own homes – and I’m not even convinced about that – my great fear is that people will drive stoned. Or try to do their jobs that way. Impairment of that kind could be deadly to both the stoner and the people around him/her. Picture your surgeon being high when he/she operates on you. Or the pilot on your next flight. Marijuana removes inhibitions – as I learned by personal experience – and someone who might otherwise responsibly might behave much more recklessly under the influence. Even someone sitting around their own home might get very sloppy and, for example, open the gas on the stove without lighting the burner, then blow up the house or the whole neighbourhood when they spark that next doobie.

Of course those things can happen now – and probably do on occasion – so legalization isn’t necessarily going to change things a lot. Still, I think a whole lot of people are going to be freer in their use of marijuana and more accidents will happen.

His real legacy will be the destruction of our country! When generation Trudeau realizes the long list of lies that he wooed them with, they will hunt him down.
