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, 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.
