La vice-présidente de l’UDI a dénoncé dimanche le rapport pour la légalisation du cannabis publié par Terra Nova, jugeant la proposition « stupide ».
L’ancienne secrétaire d’Etat Rama Yade a jugé, dimanche sur RCJ, « totalement stupide » la légalisation du cannabis proposée par le groupe d’études proche du PS Terra Nova. Dans son rapport, le groupe avance que la légalisation du cannabis serait plus efficace que l’actuelle politique de répression.
« Je trouve ça totalement stupide. C’est-à-dire que l’Etat s’enrichirait finalement avec l’argent de la drogue. Je trouve ça immoral et hypocrite », a déclaré RamaYade, vice-présidente del’UDI.« En plus le cannabis, on peut m’expliquer tout ce qu’on veut, c’est nocif pour la santé; on ne peut pas m’expliquer que le cannabis c’est bon pour la santé », a-t-elle dit.

BLAINE, Wash. — A British Columbia woman is under arrest for allegedly trying to carry $900,000 worth of cocaine from Seattle to Canada.

Robyn Cortney Bell is being held at the Sea-Tac Federal Detention Center on suspicion of cocaine possession with intention to distribute.

According to a complaint filed in federal court, the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol in Blaine received a tip that a woman in a Volvo XC90 was in Seattle on Wednesday loading drugs into a secret hydraulic compartment in her trunk. Later that night, they spotted that vehicle at the border crossing in Blaine.

After a drug detection dog picked up a scent at the back of the vehicle, agents say they discovered 21 sealed packages weighing 23 kilograms. The powder tested positive for cocaine.

Bell’s lawyer, Jeffrey Steinborn, declined to comment on her arrest.

“We have happy hour on right now, if you buy three bags, you get one free” says the waiter after taking our drinks order. The tune of Baa-baa black sheep runs through my alcohol soaked brain. There’s an awkward silence as our group of random backpackers glance at each other not knowing what to say… or do.

It’s a tad past midnight and we had just arrived at Route 36, the infamous cocaine bar of Bolivia’s administrative capital La Paz. The decision to head here was made after consuming copious amounts of cheap Jaeger bombs in our hostel bar not too far away. I somehow don’t think anyone in his or her right mind would turn up at the imposing black door “hidden” between apartments in a non-descript downtown suburb without being pretty sauced up already.

Before I continue, I’ll spare the reader a lecture about how cocaine…
