Pot problems

Having done drug enforcement over two decades, anyone who believes
Justin Trudeau when he says "legalization is the best way to keep this
dangerous drug away from our kids" is living in fantasy land. There
will still be a flourishing black market, as there is in Colorado and
Washington states. By allowing anyone over 19 to grow their own pot
supplies, children in such residences will have easy access, plus be
exposed to dangerous contaminants emitted from the pot plants. In
Colorado, young kids are flooding ERs after getting into their
parents' pot supplies, especially edibles containing high
concentrations of THC. We can expect the same here. Sunny Days are not
ahead for Canadian kids!

(If government taxes are too high on pot they'll create the same black
market they did for cigarettes by pushing tobacco taxes too high)
