If "President" Kanye can do it, "shouldn't all of our leaders be smoking weed?"

Rebel Staff

While high on weed during the Video Music Awards, Kanye West announced his plan to run for president in 2020.

Matt Philips of says that if this is the effect marijuana has on Kanye West, maybe all our leaders should be smoking it.

He asked Torontonians what they think of Kanye's candidacy -- and which Canadian politicians should pick up the bong.

(Hint: Justin Trudeau's name comes up a lot... Although Harper gets a shout out, too.)

Bill – The Rebel basically thrives on promotion of non-acceptance of those who are insufficiently right wing.

After consulting a dictionary, I conclude that “Conservative politicians are uptight as fuck” isn’t half as “bigoted” as the average post on this website. And moreover, it’s probably more true.

Kanye West, Laureen Harper, Justin Trudeau and all leftie liberals all seem to ignore one thing: when we lock up a bunch of Marijuana users that leaves more for the rest of us!

Jimmy when you are done pimping bigoted stereotypes you may get out of you cave (Mommy’s basement?) and se that virtually EVERYONE in the political power structure is an “uptight asshat” – including the pathetic partisan fart-catchers who believe one sphincter smells better than another.

God gave us weed. It has medical benefits for some conditions.
There’s nothing wrong with using it recreationally, but probably accountants and doctors should not not smoke it at work.

Justine already acts as if he is stoned, so maybe he does smoke it. Harper is far too intelligent to smoke it and angry Tommie, well he could do with mellowing out a bit.

On a serious note, Jason exposed the real image of Justin….it was amazing how many associated Trudeau with weed. Most people interview, also viewed Trudeau as a joke.

Conservative politicians could use some weed – it might help with their uptight as fuck mentality.

Weed will most likely open their mind and make them nicer. Matters not. Probably 80% of the people walking around Canada, doing their jobs, are high on weed. You wouldn’t even know it. People that smoke pot have normal lives and are not the degenerate, lowlife lazy bums society has been fed into believing.
