Too bad Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made pot legalization his
government's top priority rather than developing a national strategy
to deal with the opioid crisis that has killed thousands coast to coast.

Provinces and cities were left to fight the greatest drug crisis in
Canada on their own. I guess for Trudeau votes and the billions that
pot sales will bring in trumped everything else.

Seems foolhardy for Trudeau to be legalizing another drug, with all
the health and psychological problems that will mean, as we face the
opioid crisis.
