Wasting police time and fueling street gangs...

That's what we are doing by keeping pot illegal. It seems today though that Canada's n00b government is also racking up court costs. Another judge has thrown out a marijuana possession charge on the grounds that it's unconstitutional. The legal argument is an interesting one too, from the CBC:
"In court, the man argued that the federal government only made it policy to provide marijuana to those who need it, but never made it an actual law. Because of that, he argued, all possession laws, whether medicinal or not, should be quashed."
I can't believe we waste money on this. Where is all the supposed Conservative austerity?
