Clear Thinking

Im never really certain about just where the vacumn of thinking lies.

It could be in the heads of the people who produce a newspaper of whatever quality.

Or it could be in the heads of the people who write the daily summary for the Provincial Premiers.

Or it could be in the heads of provincial premiers.

Wherever it is, how on this earth would anyone go about keeping cannabis away from motorists.

This is North America. You need groceries, you hop in the car, drive to the mall, park at the bank, withdraw %100, then drive fifty yards and park outside the supermarket.

How on this earth would anyone go about keeping cannabis away from motorists, when, by definition, a measurable percentage of folks who by cannabis will have driven there?

As for criminals, the whole thing about criminals is that they are either adept or inept at devising schemes to get around obstacles and over hurdles.

I have this frightening image of a large pasteboard sign in the licensed cannabis shops reading If you are a criminal, please do not come in here or similar.

It might work.

But I doubt it.

I know that the statement is taken in isolation, but stating that the Crime Rate Dipped BECAUSE the criminals were watching television is terrible thinking.

Perhaps the crime rate dipped because so many non-criminal people stayed home to watch television that very few homes were obviously unlit, and if I were a criminal, Id avoid Robbing Homes in which people were awake.

On the other hand, if I were a criminal, Id use the fact that people were sitting at home to create an opportunity to Rob Their Businesses. After all, if you shut up shop early to go home and watch the Beatles, youve probably been careless about securing your valuables at work.
