    Highest voter turnout since 1999 as well which makes this feel even worse, with having so many more voters and not a god damn difference was made.

    Why is every headline on every news story about this accompanied by a stock photo of some bearded white dude smoking a GIANT novelty-sized blunt? When the legislation comes into effect, are we going to give clemency to people convicted of cannabis related offences? You know, the ones who look less like that (short answer: no; because Canada is racist as fuck).

    You and your wild accusations. Canada is racist. The nurses are stealing my money.
    All the stock photos I have seen so far have mostly been of green plants.

    Uh, maybe you have me confused with someone else? I have nurses in my family...

    Incarceration rates for drug offenders bespeak a HORRIBLY racist system that needs redress.

    As for pot imagery, just about every major newspaper has photos on file from "pot march" demonstrators and the one image they inevitably recycle whenever the legalization debate comes up is the one I alluded to; current articles from the Star and the Globe and the Post are all using it.

    Fair enough but do you seriously think there is correlation between using a photo of some white dude stoner and perceived racist attitudes in the justice system?
