- We give the NDP a strong fail on this position. Politicians have had 40 years to deal with this issue, and have failed to do so. Legalization and Regulation for Adult use is the best path forward. Trudeau and the Liberals understand this, and so do Elizabeth May and the Green Party.

Friday October 10th, 2014

Canada - Marijuana Legalization for Adult Use : The Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, Justin Trudeau, today responded to the Pro Legalization policy statement from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH):

“Liberals welcome the call for the legalization and regulation of marijuana by the CAMH, which is widely recognized as a world-leading research centre in the field of mental health and addictions. We agree with the CAMH that a well-regulated, legal system for marijuana access promotes public health and safety, reduces the harms associated with the use of marijuana, and helps to keep the drug out of the hands of our children – which is exactly what Liberals have been advocating.” - Justin Trudeau
> more


Canada - Conservative Justice Minister Peter MacKay MacKay Unmoved by CAMH's call for marijuana legalization. Mr. MacKay says he wants to increase the enforcement of the Marijuana Prohibition. - ctvnews.ca
Peter MacKay said: "We do not intend to legalize or decriminalize." MacKay added that the government continues to consider "methods in which we can increase enforcement," including the ticketing option favoured by chiefs of police. "This would not decrease but increase enforcement and optionality for police to ensure that people are respecting the law," he stressed.
> more

Marijuana.Ca comment : Mr. MacKay and Mr. Harper are strongly supporting an utterly failed and unworkable Marijuana Prohibition that is in the midst of collapsing on itself.
There are a growing number of Conservatives who support Marijuana Legalization for Adult Use.

Marijuana.Ca comment : This is One of many good reasons to Legalize and Regulate Marijuana for Adult Use. Trudeau and the Liberals say they will do this if they win the next election. The Conservatives and the NDP won't do this. With respect to Marijuana Legalization, there has never been such a compelling opportunity like this in Canadian political history. Your vote counts.

Marijuana.Ca reaction :
 The Marijuana Drug War continues in Canada. And it's an utter failure. It tears apart families and costs the taxpayers a huge amount of money. The best way to deal with this issue is to Legalize and Regulate Marijuana for Adult use. The Liberal Party of Canada is the only major party in Canada that support this position. Your vote counts. An election is coming.

Marijuana.Ca reaction :
Justin Trudeau is the only leader of a major party that has a reasonable and intelligent approach to the Marijuana issue. The lack of a progressive stance on this issue from Mulcair and the NDP is a significant step backwards for the NDP. Hopefully the NDP and Mulcair will wake up from their Prohibitionist slumber, shake off the hangover, and soon come out and support Legalizatoin of Marijuana for Adult Use. The election clock is ticking, and the NDP's current position is inadvertently supporting Harper.
