Next up in the rapid-fire election guide, we have the Marijuana Party.
This is truly a one-issue party. No, really. Actually, they have a fair bit to say about internet regulation as well, but at heart, these guys are all about freein' the bud. A worthy effort, probably, since criminalization of marijuana is moronic and expensive (mostly moronic). And, you have a like a political party that uses an obscenity, albeit an asterisked obscenity, in their party platform.
If this party were an animal, it would be: A marijuana plant.
Position on environmental concerns? Legalizing hemp is probably a good environmental thing to do.
Attitude towards our friends to the South? Visceral fear.
Percent likelihood that they'll try to repeal gay marriage? Probably not very high.
Is Oi! Thump! voting for them? They are running exactly one candidate in Alberta, and he's not in Oi! Thump!'s riding.
