Notley to Legalize Pot to Balance Alberta Books

(SNN) Newly elected premier-elect, Rachel Notley, is planning to make up the $7 Billion shortfall in provincial revenues by legalizing and taxing marijuana. She says ‘happy hay’ should be available in provincial liquor stores by Canada Day, which will provincially be changed to Cannabis Day.

“It is a natural, sustainable, popular way to generate revenue without hurting the lower class, the upper class or even those with no class. And no, I am not referring to the PCs,” said Notley in a media scrum following her astonishing win. "We believe this will also get everybody to just chill about having just elected a bunch of socialists."

“What do you expect from a commie, heathen, born again hippie like my honourable colleague, Ms. Notley?” wondered Wildrose Leader Brian Jean at her announcement. “Thank God she didn’t mention this in the election or we would have been wiped off the electoral map, too.”

Dr. David Swann, the leader of the provincial Liberals was aghast at the move by Notley.

“Doesn’t she know that marijuana use can undermine ambition?” Swann asked rhetorically. “I bet she’s a chromic smoker herself.  I bet she isn't at all ambitious. Crazy lefty hippie freak. Better than Prentice, at least.”

In response to the Notley weed offensive, Alberta Party leader and sole MLA, Greg Clark said, “Who cares? I won! HAHAHAHA! I won! I won! Woohoo!”

Jim Prentice was unavailable for comment.
