Media Bites: Should Trudeau Have Put the "I" in Marijuana?

J.J. McCullough

2012-04-27-mediabitesreal.jpgOne of the great fascinations of the marijuana debate is the degree of puritanism we seem to expect from the pro-pot camp. They're supposed to speak in detached, paternalistic tones about why "someone" or "people" or (better yet) "kids" shouldn't be thrown in jail for smoking a bit of weed. Justin Trudeau committed that most untoward breach of modern political etiquette by telling the Huffington Post he smoked pot: self-interestedly advocating the change of a law that he personally breaks. Optically speaking, that doesn't look good. And as we all know, when it comes to Justin, good looks matter.

Trudeau Smoked Pot and We Don't Care

On Thursday Justin Trudeau admitted to smoking marijuana while serving as a member of the Parliament of Canada and, for the most part, Canada gave a collective shrug. It has, after all, been more than 20 years since Bill Clinton "didn't inhale" and Woodstock was almost 45 years ago. Admitting to smoking marijuana cost Justin Trudeau nothing. The only people likely to be upset or offended by it are people who were unlikely to vote for the Liberals anyway. He may have actually gained some support.
