Tim Hudak is absolutely determined to leave no space between his position and that of incumbent Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty. They’re both admitted former drug users who think (because they got away with it and weren’t caught) that there’s no need to decriminalize or legalize marijuana:
“I was a normal kid, I had a normal upbringing, a normal life in university so I experimented from time to time with marijuana,” Hudak told reporters. When asked when he last smoked, Hudak replied: “Quite some time ago.”
Hudak also said he does not support the decriminalization of possession of small amounts of marijuana.
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty has also said he has tried marijuana in the past.
