Europe goes to pot

There's a great old Monty Python sketch based on the premise that the world lacks a proper nasty epithet for use in insulting Belgians. The gang of loons run a mock contest to choose an appropriate insult, accepting submissions by the bushel. I don't remember what the winning entry was, but I'll bet the folks at the DEA and in the Drug Czar's office do - and that they've been cooking up new names, too. You see, Belgium just called it quits on at least part of the war on drugs and legalized the personal use of marijuana.
