Stephen Harper admits drug war flaws, Hillary Clinton goes clubbing

Prime Minister Stephen Harper surprised reporters at the Summit of the Americas in Colombia Sunday when he admitted that the drug war may be flawed. From the CBC’s Terry Milewski:

“What I think everybody believes,” Harper said, “is that the current approach is not working. But it is not clear what we should do.”

Lest anyone think he’d undergone a conversion in Cartagena, Harper quickly added the other side of the story.

Drugs, he said, “are illegal because they quickly and totally — with many of the drugs — destroy people’s lives.”

Actual news at the Cartagena summit has been overshadowed in the U.S. by a scandal involving 11 secret service agents and a hereto unknown number of prostitutes. Unbowed by that fracas, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went clubbing late Saturday night, where state department sources confirmed she had “a lot” of fun.

Stephen Harper admits drug war flaws, Hillary Clinton goes clubbing

  1. “But it is not clear what we should do when I have to say how high when Obama tells me to jump”   Fixed that for ya Steve.

    • No dick, husseins  your man 

  2. Drugs, he said, “are illegal because they quickly and totally — with many of the drugs — destroy people’s lives.”

    So can we reschedule the ones that do not, or does that hurt your head too much?

    • Leave it to the pot-addled to fail to grasp the bigger picture here. About 75% of Canada’s trade is with the US, a country that is pretty damn wedded to the drug war. Canada cannot unilaterally decriminalize or legalize weed without serious consequences at the border. And last time I checked, the Americans are pretty wedded to continuing that stupidity. But clearly Harper is the villain here, because, not only did he merely criticize the drug war, he also failed to light up a doobie in the middle of the summit. 

      But by all means, continue to criticize one of the few voices making your case in a way that could potentially achieve results. 

  3. What admission? He said what i think everybody (read what others believe not Friendly Stephen) believes is that the current approach is not working….

    there is no suggestion he agrees with what everybody else believes

  4. “Stephen Harper admits drug war flaws, Hillary Clinton goes clubbing” baby seals, I hope.

    I need new mukluks.

  5. And where drugs don’t destroy lives, then a criminal record and some quality time with some very bad company will do the job for sure.

  6. Steve needs to toke up

  7. One of the few common sense leaders in the world and Canada has the good fortune to have him as leader and the small minds of the left can do nothing better than ad hominem attacks.
