There seems to be some discussion of legally-prescribed or OTC drugs vs patently illegal drugs. If you are intoxicated, you are intoxicated, period. If you got stopped driving a car, you will be charged whether you are taking medication or smokked a gagger or drank some whiskey.

If you are taking legal drugs, there is no problem. The problem is that by taking illegal drugs, you not only have broken the law, but now have brought liability upon the game host. There are folks who don't even believe pot should be illegal, well, take it up with your MP. The fact is that it is illegal, same as under-aged drinking and smoking. Personal opinions are bullshit here.

Why excactly is this even a discussion?

ASC decided to institute and 18+ policy for guns, when in fact it had no basis in law in Canada except for Ontario. This was a community decision, and ASC has in the past gone out of it's way to enforce that.

The community needs to decide if this is acceptable, and let's see where it goes.

Brian is right though too, who wants to be the "ASC Dope Cop"? Kurgan should call the police on those who are smoking dope, and making it known that they do.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
