Marijuana.Ca reaction : How about $400 fines for possessing bottles of Scotch, large bags of potatoe chips, and other things that some people disapprove of? We are long long overdue to move Canada's Marijuana Policies into the 21st Century, and Legalize and Regulate Marijuana for Adult Consumption. The current Canadian Government's Marijuana Policies and Laws are an insulting and degrading set of flimsy ideas based on ignorance and hypocrisy. And the punishments and sentences are severe.
The Marijuana Prohibition in Canada is going to end.  The question is, do you want it to end now, or in another 5 - 10 or 20 years?

Health Canada should immediately change the regulations and allow Licensed Producers to sell oils, edibles and ingestibles. The pain, risk and stress Canadian families are undergoing because of this is being caused by Health Canada and the Conservative Government's Health Minister, Rona Ambrose.

The USA and the crumbling of the entire Global Marijuana War : With focus elsewhere, The Republican Controlled Congress shows little interest in blocking Pot Legalization in Washington D.C. - WashingtonPost.com
> more

Marijuana.Ca reaction : The impact of the upcoming implementation of A Legal Marijuana System in Washington D.C. (the district) will strongly reverberate across the United States, into Canada and around the World. The US congress may try and block this. But, Obama would have to support blocking the measure, and it sounds like he's unlikely to do so. It's still unclear as to when we will have clarity about this, perhaps by February or March 2015.  If Legalization does occur in Washington, D.C., this will be a very important victory. At some point, the slow motion falling of the Marijuana Prohibition Wall will quickly collapse under it's own weight.

Florida Medical Marijuana
.

The measure doe NOT pass, as 57.6% in favour. 60% approval is REQUIRED.
This is very unfortunate. That said, based on these numbers, politicians should move forward right away and pass legislation to Legalize Medical Marijuana in order to respect the democratic will of the people.

Marijuana.Ca comment : This is significant for two reasons. 1. Here we have politicians potentially legalizing marijuana for recreational use. Up until now, it's been citizen led initiatives that led the way in the USA. If politicians start to move on this issue, we can watch the Marijuana Prohibition fall apart more quickly. 2. This is Washington D.C. And while it's a local/district vote, it will have an effect on the political climate in Washington. What happens in Washington with respect to the War on Marijuana, has an effect on Canada and the rest of the world, because the Global Marijuana War and Prohibition has it's roots in there.

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.

Marijuana.Ca reaction : Mr. MacKay and Stephen Harper want to continue to give criminal records to Canadians who consume Marijuana and to continue the Failed Prohibition Tactics to stop the illegal market, which of course, will continue to Fail.  Justin Trudeau and the Liberals want to Legalize and Regulate Marijuana for Adult Use. That makes sense. An election is coming. This is an election issue.

Canada - Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau defends pot legalization policy - lfpress.com
> more
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.
