Why Does Canada Hate John Ashcroft?

Well ... hold on to your hats, folks ... our enlightened neighbor to the north is about to make marijuana available in pharmacies:

Health Canada plans to make government-certified marijuana available in pharmacies, a move that could boost the number of registered medical users.

Officials are organizing a pilot project in British Columbia that would allow medical users to buy marijuana at drugstores.

Currently, 78 medical users in Canada are permitted to buy Health Canada marijuana, which is grown in Flin Flon, Man. The 30-gram bags of dried buds, sold for $150 each, now are sent by courier directly to patients or their doctors.

The department will allow participating pharmacies to stock marijuana for sale to approved patients without a prescription

Mmmm... government-certified marijuana. So I guess if their society crumbles to the ground in a few years the United States' current drug policy will be proved a success and otherwise a failure, no?
