I'm not a fan of Justin Trudeau or most of his policies, but I have to
agree with his stance on pot. He has it right in that regulation will
go a long way towards keeping marijuana out of the hands of children
and remove much of it from the control of criminal entities. As for
the Tory response "These drugs are illegal because of the harmful
effect they have on users and on society" (Peter Mackay), I wonder how
many of them smoke cigarettes, cigars, drink alcohol or eat fast food.
There are numerous health and society issues which are harmful and you
cannot use this reason for criminalizing one, without criminalizing
them all.
