Oh Larry! Here we go again.

Larry Campbell is, apparently, officially supporting a recommendation that the Federal government leagalize marijuana.

There are many arguments for and against this - I think the primary one is tax based, and am more than happy to engage in a detailed discussion on demand - but this brings one thing to mind.

This is not going to help Vancouver’s image as Slacker City.

This is a serious problem - the rest of Canada generally regards Vancouver with disdain on this level, and the slacker ethic here is real. It’s just weird that our mayor is cultivating it, rather than fighting it.

Oh that wacky west coast. Here we go again.
