Holiday travels and fun studies…

Forbidden Fruitcake

The Canadian Broadcast Corp. reports from Montreal that “the federal and provincial governments have contributed close to $700,000 for a series of studies at McGill University in which a psychiatry professor is offering people $500 to use cocaine.”

But Canada takes a less tolerant approach to some other substances, reports Canadian Television: “According to the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority, fruitcakes are being banned because they are notoriously difficult to identify on the X-ray scanners used to inspect air travellers’ luggage.”
