“My comment is an extreme opinion designed to encourage thought provoking conversation from the other side of the couch. Never once did I say it was OK for him to run the city while on drugs (or under the influence of any substance).

Your failure to realize that, and to call me "simple minded" for calling those people out that are all for legalizing drugs on one post but then lash out at Rob for his crack use on another suggests that I may not be the simple minded one here.”

bespoken on May 28, 2013 at 20:35:34

“I just re-read your post.  Sorry, can't agree with that.  Ford is the embodiment of a double standard.  He has crusaded against drug users, masde a big part of his platform law and order, and yet he's been convicted of DUI and found in possession of pot, has been visibly impaired in his function as mayor a number of times, has repeatedly broken ethics rules (even if he wasn't ousted for it) and now this.

There's nothing in your post that even begins to address these issues.  In fact, you come across like a Ford apologist, rationalizing his behaviour while attempting to portray his critics - especially those of us who advocate for drug decriminalization - as being hypocrites.”

“haha I'm not defending him. Crack is a horrible drug. I'm not even from Toronto. To be perfectly honest, I want him to stick around because it gives the rest of us a laugh.
All I'm trying to say is - our views on drugs are misrepresented thanks to the whole 'war on drugs' push. More like 'war on personal freedom'. 
Just trying to place the thought out there.”

Another Pesky Canadian on May 28, 2013 at 08:38:35

“I hear you on "personal freedom". 
And I totally understand how funny the "RoFo D'Oh-Fo We-Won't-Go Show" must seem to the rest of the world, but it is seriously and even frighteningly sad that things could have gotten to this point.  
It's like a blind person driving a bus full of people lashed to their seats down a curving mountain road at ever increasing speed.
Have a nice day, wherever you may be.”

“I'm not entirely sure how much experience you've had with crack addicts but once the addiction takes root, I wouldn't trust them with housesitting much less running a city.

Smoking crack runs counter to a mayor's fiduciary responsibility to the city. It's not the same as golfing on your day off.”

“Maybe I'm of the minority (or perhaps I'm less hypocritical than those that post on the 'legalize drugs' posts) but does it even matter if he did? I mean, provided it wasn't during 'business hours' and doesn't affect his ability to do his job (some will argue his weight does too).. quite frankly it shouldn't. Because it comes down to the whole debate... we should be able to do to ourselves whatever we want. It's our body, and our mind. No one has the right to say what we can or cannot do. Yes, crack has a bad rep (and rightly so, it's not exactly good for you), but does that make him a bad person? If it wasn't crack and say beer... we wouldn't even be having this debate. The fact is, laws already exist to take care of those that mess up while under the influence of any substance. If ol' Robbie here was at work or out in public doing this (aka, public intoxication), then absolutely it's wrong. But for him to decide to mess up his mind... that's his choice. He's allowed to eat himself into oblivion why does it suddenly matter when it's your head? If anything, is that not more sacred? No law should have that kind of power. Just saying...”

bespoken on May 27, 2013 at 23:32:18

“That there are those of us who see the idiocy of drug laws doesn't mean that we're as simple minded as you evidently are.

If one has a drug or drinking problem (essentially the same thing) there are obviously positions one is unfit for while in that condition. Mayor of Canada's largest city, for example, airline pilot. Police officer. Surgeon. The list is inexhuastable.

That said, if a person does have such a problem, they need - and should be given - help. Perhaps that kind of assistance should be withheld from people like Rob Ford and Conservatives who would prefer to impugn people who need that kind of assistance, preferring instead the legal and other punitive consequences for anyone but themselves.”

“Some professions are held to a higher standard. For example students drink beer. Teachers drink beer but students and teachers don't drink beer together even if age appropriate and I am talking about high school. Teachers get fired because teachers are role models etc. The trouble is many jobs have responsiblites beyond the work place and if it adffects the work place then it will get changed. I think your value system is somewhat convoluted to the big picture but in essence if you want to smoke your head off and if Ford has done that then you'll be doing your thing and he'll be looking for a new job.”

“What we need is someone with a strong enough voice, who understands social media and can reach out to the youth and the old, to help rally the troops and unite this country. (See Obama). Unfortunately, in Canada, that person is not Justin Trudeau. The only one that really understood this concept and would have made an impact was the late Jack Layton.

(And I'm not even an NDP supporter).”
