By now you should of heard the Liberal Party of Canada leader Justin Trudeau speak out publicly in favour of ending decades of criminal prohibition of cannabis.
Join the Liberal Party’s call for an end to marijuana prohibition.
The status quo isn’t working. It’s time to regulate and legalize marijuana. Sign the petition if you agree. http://lpc.ca/end-prohibition
Marijuana prohibition is costly and unsafe. That’s why the Liberal Party supports legalizing and regulating marijuana.
Stephen Harper keeps fighting a failed war on drugs that has resulted in more than 475,000 Canadians being arrested on marijuana-related charges.
And while gangsters and thugs get rich dealing marijuana, prohibition has cost Canadian taxpayers more than $500 million (est.) since 2006.
Liberals believe in a smart on crime approach, targeting real criminals instead of ordinary Canadians.
Scientific evidence and history have proven beyond any doubt prohibition is far more harmful to our own communities then a responsible adult growing and consuming a cannabis plant has ever been or ever could be. There are many quality drug policy studies over the last eleven decades now that have concluded cannabis prohibition is costly, unsafe. Prohibition has never has come close to prohibition supporters claimed desired results of a drug free society at any cost including millions of people being killed to date.
Although there have been drug policy studies around the world including in Canada released since the holy grail for cannabis drug policy in Canada was release on September 4, 2002.
Senate Special Committee on Illegal Drugs, entitled: “Cannabis: Our Position for a Canadian Public Policy”
Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party are now being responsible rational adults. We all to need to do the same even if we don’t like that type of drug policy change. Science, evidence and even history have proven change will be all so much better for all out communities for a large host of reasons.
Best case for 2015 would be to copy the beer and wine regulations. Produce your own and share with friends and family. Also allows for micro grows to large corporations. Micro breweries and wineries have been able to secure a profitable piece of the market. No reason cannabis can’t do the same if not better. Also the vast amount of research that this encourage would be incredible to say the least.
As for the very destructive drug alcohol, prohibition only provided violent crime organization to become very powerful and unstoppable. Our governments should be ending alcohol advertising with the strong messaging, consume our products and you will be popular with the pretty people crowd and of course enjoy yourself all so much more
