Canada's Green Party Leader Apologizes For Not Smoking Marijuana

Only in Canada could this happen.

Yesterday, Elizabeth May, the leader of Canada's Green Party was at a press conference in Halifax discussing her party's platform. She was asked a question about its policy concerning the decriminalization of marijuana.

In expressing her support for decriminalization she noted that she had never tried it and then said, "I apologize."

I suppose she can't risk having her supports all out of joint.

The Green Party received 4.5% of the vote in the 2006 federal election and when Parliament was dissolved it had one seat in the House of Commons.
