Canada to legalize marijuana to help them cope with living next to America
Prime Minister Trudeau says his new domestic policy will be to get baked and wait for the neighbors to their south to chill out a bit.
A statement from the Canadian government says they intend to legalize marijuana as quickly as possible because holy shit they’re definitely going to need it.
Drug reform has been a big topic in the country for many years, but experts believe the election of President Trump hastened the process – due to Trudeau calling a press conference the day after the US election and asking if anyone had any ‘really strong shit’ they could let him have a bang off.
When told that would actually be illegal, Trudeau was overheard muttering “We’ll see about that” in an off-the-record comment.
Canadians have welcomed the move to legalize cannabis, insisting that when you’re as high as a kite, some of Donald Trump’s public speeches actually start to make sense.
Speaking to reporters yesterday, Trudeau said, “Wow, yeah. So. Trump. Trump. Uh, yeah. So I reckon we’ll be needing as much of this stuff as we can get our hands on for a few years, amiright? Amiright?
“But, so, yeah, anyone got any Pringles? I feel like I need them just so as I can watch them…watch them..oh, come on, you know. Trump.
“He’s so orange. So. Orange,” he added, before falling over in a fit of giggles.
Canny Canadian retailers have already begun planning regionally-themed flavored marijuana cigarettes, with a bacon-flavored mix already extremely popular in advance sales.
