<P class=clipping>PARTY FAVOURS: IGNATIEFF TALKS POT

 

Ignatieff Talks Toking

 

Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff acknowledged Wednesday that he had smoked marijuana as a youth.

 

"I have smoked pot as a young man, yes," Ignatieff said in answer to a reporter's question at a press conference in a high school library in Sault Ste. Marie.

 

And he said that was "one of the reasons why I urge young people not to repeat the experience."

 

"It did not ruin my life. I just think there are a lot more important and interesting things to do with your life, including a glass of wine after dinner, eh? I mean, let's all relax here," Ignatieff said.

 

The issue came up because, in a question-and-answer session with high school students, he had been asked his position on legalizing marijuana.

 

He told the students he was not in favour of legalizing pot but said his party's position is that possession of small amounts of marijuana should not be a criminal offence.

 

He nonetheless urged the students to steer clear of the drug, saying there are more productive ways to spend their time and energy.

I have to applaud him for his honesty.

 

I agree with him that there are better things to do with your time in your youth.

 

I do not think his endorsement of wine is so great.

 

Recent data shows that, particulularly in males, full maturation of the brain does not occur until the age of 25yrs. Before attaining that age, young men would be best to leave BOTH alcohol and MJ alone.

 

But if they have to get high on something, MJ is safer !!

Personally I feel that most anti depressants really should fall into that category of not before 25. I was started on them in middle school and without mj I dont think I could do without them ever. but thats just my 2 cents
