today i saw all three justin trudeau attack ads over the course of the leafs game. while they were all pretty bad, the one that stuck with me was the one that showed a clip of trudeau's comment about legalizing marijuana. it was followed up with a voiceover that said "IMAGINE selling marijuana just like cigarettes and alcohol!" over top of this image:

i guess i'm just unclear about what the stance on cigarettes and alcohol is here. do tories not think those things are bad for you? do they think it's fine that those things are more accessible to kids (by virtue of being in stores, i guess)? i'm not really overly invested in legalizing weed, but saying "IMAGINE selling this drug in stores just like these other two arguably more harmful drugs!" actually sounds awfully logical to me.
