A new Olympic doping scandal?

Man, it's gonna be epic when they spark up the torch in Greece:
The ceremonial torch for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada, resembles a hand-rolled marijuana joint, observers say.

Unofficially designated British Columbia's largest cash crop, marijuana is popular in Canada's westernmost province, and the Toronto Star's bureau there said there's a lot of nudging and winking about the torch's similarity to a "spliff."

"I'm sure the organizers didn't intend for it to look like a joint, but that's what a lot of people are seeing," said Jodie Emery, editor of Cannabis Culture magazine.
Yeah, um, a lot of people see a lot of things. Especially when, well, you can see where this is going.

(Yeah, I'm implying that they're high.)
