Should Trudeau legalize recreational cocaine? “I'm all for it!”

Adam/Pathetic MillennialRebel Correspondent

With the Liberal government recently legalizing marijuana, I started thinking: What next?

What if I told people that the government was thinking about legalizing cocaine, too? Would they have the common sense to call me out on my b.s. question — or would they go along with it?

Would they think legalizing cocaine is a good thing?

To get my answers, I went down to Yonge and Dundas Square in the heart of Toronto to ask these pressing questions. WATCH to see how that turned out...

And Hey!… Why stop at pakalolo and cocaine??? In Canada’s case this is the inevitable outcome of electing a Boy Blunder prime minister trying to justify growing up with his mother – Maggie Sinclair of Simon Fraser U fame – blowing “toke smoke” in his face as he grew up…

“Everyone BUT the federal government is advocating for legalization of hard drugs, …”

Here you go Don, the Liberals have advocated and still do advocate the decriminalization of all drugs.

Canadian Lawmakers Pushing To Decriminalize All Drugs
A group of Liberal Members of Parliament (MPs) is now calling on the federal government to decriminalize the possession and use of all illegal drugs. Lawmakers in this group are pushing to get a broad decriminalization bill on the 2019 federal election ballot

OTTAWA — The war on drugs may move to a new battlefield in Canada, if Liberal MPs get their way: the 2019 federal election campaign.
They’re pushing the Trudeau government to go much further than legalizing recreational marijuana. In a priority resolution they hope will be adopted at the Liberals’ policy convention in April for inclusion in the next election platform, the national caucus is calling on the government to eliminate criminal penalties for simple possession and consumption of all illicit drugs. Newly-minted NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh has taken a similar stance.

Everyone BUT the federal government is advocating for legalization of hard drugs, academics,activists, but NOT the federal government. Both the Greens and the NDP advocate for a Portugal style legalization of all drugs,which they claim has worked well in Portugal, but I have never heard of the LPC or the CPC advocate for this.

I agree Robert Dunning… It seems the NDP/Green government in B.C. is intent on doubling down on “stupid!”… After years of obvious failure with the original “safe injection” site experiment around Hastings and Main in Vancouver, the druggies spilled over into Victoria in recent years – Hey! even a nicer climate! – and then moved up-island to Nanaimo… Nanaimo is now suffering a “doctor shortage” and I wonder why?… Because the emergency wards are overflowing with DRUGGIES you dumb shits!… Not to be dissuaded by REALITY, druggie-enabling societies are springing up all over other Vancouver Island communities, ostensibly willing to drag everybody down to the street level… Legalizing pakalolo was not enough damage done by our Boy Blunder, so let’s all of us face overdosed druggies on our streets, and, especially, “welcome” to B.C. to do more of the same!…

I’m glad some interviewees objected strongly to the insane idea of legalizing hard drugs. Those Liberals sure are reprehensible. We need to vote the bums out in October.

Seems people are at a loss for an opinion till the media gives them one.

I think Trudeau should legalize murder.

Never…drugs not only destroy the addict but everything and one associated with them. I really don’t understand how people think they can do something that is so addicting recreationally. In many cases drug addiction is nothing more than a death sentence. If people think its such a good idea perhaps they should hang around some of these in-sites that Toronto has set-up, there’s nothing like a dose of reality…

Only if we can open carry.

“What if I told people that the government was thinking of legalizing……”
Yeah, that was entertaining, but the population already doesn’t know what to believe with all the lies that we are already told.

If you had asked, ‘what would you say IF the government was thinking of legalizing cocaine’, that would be one thing, but ‘what if I told you THAT the government was thinking of legalizing cocaine’ seems a little , I don’t know, unhelpful?

Legalize everything. Let Darwin take over.

Legalizing cocaine to reduce crime is a fallacy. Cocaine is very addictive, and as a result of many new addicts losing their jobs, they would resort to breaking into houses/cars and robbing people to get money for their next hit, thus increasing crime exponentially.
