What will marijuana legalization look like under the Liberal government? Marijuana advocates are hinting into how the legalization process will play out in Canada when Justin Trudeau is sworn in as Prime Minister on November 4th.
From The Georgia Straight:
“In his campaign for prime minister, Liberal party leader Justin Trudeau promised his government would fully legalize and regulate the sale and consumption of recreational cannabis. That pledge went significantly further than NDP leaderThomas Mulcair’s plan to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of pot. While decriminalization leaves supply to the black market, Trudeau insisted Canada should regulate cannabis in ways similar to how the country handles other controlled substances, such as alcohol and tobacco.”
