Lawson boys make it into the TSN TV booth while attending the  World Jr Hockey Championship in Buffalo

Most hockey fans will recognize the two gentlemen with the suit and ties – (L) – James Duthie and (R) Bob McKenzie both high profile TSN announcers.  Very few will recognize two Ex Cadets with their holiday beards along with their brother – two spouses and a girl friend.

23479 Ben Lawson and younger brother 24890 Jack journeyed to Buffalo over the holidays along with a nice entourage:

(PHOTO) (L to R) – Jenna McGrath (naval logistics officer- not an ex-cadet, Jack’s girlfriend), Jack Lawson (ACSO, ex-cadet), Jillian Lawson (non-military, Ben’s spouse), Ben Lawson (pilot, ex-cadet), Neil Lawson (non-military), Julie Lawson (Neil’s spouse).

Not sure how they made it into the TV booth but we’re confident that both Ben and Jack would be willing to share the experience with friends.

    The MJ pot is a-boiling! Many responses to the lead article!!
    The long established use of alcohol (and Cultural Familiarity with its short term and long term effects) is being compared to the use of MJ (with its lesser known effects).
    Alcohol enters the body (usually) through the digestive system which can expel over consumption and metabolizes relatively quickly. MJ enters (commonly) through the respiratory system and is taken directly into the circulatory system without a safety mechanism and metabolizes over a longer period.
    Both cause some degree of personal change. When deemed to be impairment by whatever measure or test and to whatever degree, operational safety becomes a concern that should responsibly preclude any activity that puts others or the self at unintended risk. Many military activities involve dealing with or delivering considerable amounts of force by pressing a trigger, flipping a switch or issuing a command.
    Likely precluded activities include but are not limited to the following:
    -handling a weapon, ammunition or explosives;
    -operating any type of equipment or vehicle – sea, land or air;
    -diagnosing or treating (in particular surgery) disease, injuries and wounds;
    =prescribing, dispensing or administering drugs; {Hawkeye on MASH not withstanding}
    -supervising or participating in dangerous or sensitive activities – parachuting, diving, weapons ranges, unarmed combat, packing parachutes;
    -using electronic equipment – communications and computing and drones.
    Zero tolerance.
    The military upholds Democracy, but does not practise it!
