Geee, just think if Bush actually made his case before the UN and we were there with you and the brits.
I guess this time, Bush's incompetence before the UN worked out good for us.
As for the Lung cancer, dont worry bout us, brother, the moment we legalize, I suspect American tourism will rise by quantum dimensions as octo and his dope smoking brethern flock across the border in flocks to smoke their six paper joints without the threat of big brother throwing him in Oz for life. Bring lots of money, were taxing the sheeet out of it, after all, somebody has to pay for our health care system and it might as well be you all! snicker.
Hey, if they are lucky, America might even have a universal health care system they can fall back on when the ole black lung kicks in thirty years from now and, instead of having to sell off the coop or die then die and leave noting for the family anyways, they can die with peace of mind, knowing the medical bills....
better yet, maybe we can discover a cure for lung cancer with all the money were raking in off taxing the reefer that our farmers grow locally to produce the smoke, the oil seed additive for gasoline and enough fibre to make clearcutting for pupl and paper reasons obsolete... Then our forests will regrow and clean the air and we'll all live forever.... lalalalaa! snicker. Pass da doooby, I could live in a world like that. Hell, here in Niagara, I might even consider opening up a nice cafe on the river, maybe down in Queenston. You all can mellow out at three bucks (US!) a doob and I'll get rich!
