Ian O'Doherty: A slight overreaction, perhaps?
It says a lot about this country that one of our most prominent and outspoken politicians is none other than Luke 'Ming' Flanagan, a self-confessed stoner.
Now, don't get me wrong, being one myself I have nothing against stoners. But when a politician's main claim to fame is that he likes to spark up the occasional spliff, then you could be forgiven for thinking that we need people of a higher calibre.
But it's not just weed he has an interest in -- he is also obsessed with bogs.
