Marijuana Party Formed In 2000, a new political party was established in Canada--the Marijuana Party. The ultimate in one-issue parties, the Marijuana Party was established solely to end Canada's prohibition on cannabis. It has no formal platform on any other issue. In the 2000 Canadian federal election, the Marijuana Party ran candidates in 73 ridings, and received more than 66,000 votes. (That was about 2 percent of the overall vote total in those ridings.) In the three subsequent federal elections since 2000, the Marijuana Party fielded progressively fewer and fewer candidates each time. In 2008, only eight ridings featured Marijuana Party candidates. That year the party's biggest accomplishment was a fourth-place finish in the far north riding of Nunavut, where the Marijuana Party candidate finished ahead of the Green Party candidate.

You should post this on April 20th. I'm told 4/20 is code for marijuana.

That's news to me, Steve. April 20 is also Adolf Hitler's birthday. Maybe there's some bizarre connection.

I've heard some political commentators in Canada refer to the Marijuana Party as the 'Party Party.'
