How is this not an emergency? I find it mind-boggling that the Trudeau
government has made legalizing marijuana its top priority rather than
developing a national strategy to cope with the opioid crisis that is
killing thousands of young people from coast to coast. Why on Earth,
with this opioid crisis, would any sensible government want to add
another dangerous drug to the mix, with so many long-term effects of
pot unknown.
