A friend of mine is an outstanding police officer of 30 years. He enforces the laws whether you agree with them or not. To have the leader of the Liberal Party, Justin Trudeau, admit to using marijuana is a slap in the face to all law enforcement officers in the country. As an MP he holds a position of power. Marijuana is illegal and Justin Trudeau is not suited to lead this country. In fact, he just demonstrated how inadequate he really is.
Politicians live and work in an environment where lofty ethical values are replaced by an insatiable need to win. Don’t assume that he has made a full admission; he has done just enough to impress, no more. Exercise sensible skepticism. Do you really believe that he has only used marijuana “five or six times” in his life?
There isn’t any transparency or courage on display for everyone to admire. It isn’t a true confession. People are so gullible to imagine that he is being honest.
