Oh Canada

Canadians are a relaxed if somewhat peculiar bunch. Reuters reports that:

Canadian troops fighting Taliban militants in Afghanistan have stumbled across an almost impenetrable forests of 10-feet (three metre) high marijuana plants.

"A couple of brown plants on the edges of some of those (forests) did catch on fire. But a section of soldiers that was downwind from that had some ill effects and decided that was probably not the right course of action," General Rick Hillier said dryly.

So are we too uptight or too laid back?
