Decriminalizing Weed
by Andrew Jackson
The officials in the United States argue that weed is going to cause Canada’s crime-rate to go up. They also say that the decriminalizing of this ‘dangerous drug’ will cause massive problems in the states, smuggling pot through customs.

Well, everyone knows how dangerous and violent pot smokers are, what with their massive need for so-called ‘munchies’ and ever constant mellow moods. I mean, I don’t know how many times I heard a pot smoker say, “let’s smoke a blunt and go cause a riot” or “Weed makes me want to kill!” Could you imagine the consequences of decriminalizing this ‘dangerous’ drug? Everyone would be going around speaking with ridicules slang and walking with a stagger.

The U.S officials might say this drug is dangerous and should not be considered for decriminalization in Canada, and we might have even listened to their reasoning if we could hear it over the gunfire.
