Re: Families Of Slain Mounties Seek Harder Drug Law, Sept. 27

It's high time to legalize cannabis, not simply decriminalize it. 
Police officers will continue to senselessly die in an unwinnable war 
against cannabis; a war that two-thirds of Canadians think is wrong 
in the first place.

Polls suggest Canadians want pot legalized and realize the current 
"reefer-madness" laws are draconian and futile. To continue to punish 
people for using it, growing it and distributing it is a waste of 
limited police resources.
