Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi has "seen the science" regarding marijuana
and young people, and because of this, he wants the minimum age to
purchase marijuana to be 21. Has Nenshi bothered to notice the science
regarding tobacco, which directly kills 45,000 Canadians every year,
or alcohol, which directly kills 4,500 Canadians every year? yet,
anyone 18 or over can purchase these products. Marijuana-related
deaths in Canada for 2016: 0. In fact, marijuana-related deaths for
the years 2000 B.C. to 2017 A.D.: 0. Don't worry about adults
purchasing marijuana at 18, Mr. Nenshi. It will be fine.
