Politics: where absolutely anything is OK as long as the right team does it.

Drug czar?

John Walters White House drug czar said yesterday:


"The number of Americans admitted to hospital emergency wards because of marijuana use has doubled to 120,000 annually in the last five years, he said. Meanwhile, the number of teenagers seeking treatment for marijuana dependency has grown to the point where it is more than for all other drugs combined, including alcohol."

Where does he get those "facts" from? I have never heard of anyone being hospitalized for just marijuana use.

I think it is called "rectal statistics" when one pulls random numbers out of one's poop chute.

Probably making hay while the sun is shining.

With the recent RCMP events here, the anti-drug stance has become much more defendable.
