Re Ottawa Adds $36-Million In Funding For Cannabis-Education Campaigns
(Nov. 1): If the federal government truly wanted to limit harm from
marijuana, it would only legalize it for sale and consumption in forms
that aren't smoked and have standardized amounts of THC per unit. It
would also delay legalization until there's a roadside test that's as
accurate as breathalyzers.

The Liberal government is willing to postpone its deficit reduction
timeline, and not to proceed with a referendum on voting reform, but
implementing recreational drug use is a campaign promise the Liberals
just can't delay.

Why are they so eager to legalize marijuana? Is dealing with the Trump
administration really that bad?
