Canada's New Prime Minister Is For Legalization
The leader of Canada’s Liberal Party and next prime minister, Justin Trudeau, recently touched upon the unsatisfying results of Canada’s failed marijuana policy. Canada has been subjected to abiding by Stephen Harper's rule as Prime Minister, which created new restrictions on the medical marijuana program.
Trudeau left with the room full of cannabis supporters applauding his "blunt" decision to legalize and regulate cannabis throughout Canada. He said, “The Liberal Party is committed to legalizing and regulating marijuana. We are going to get started on that right away.” His statement is completely opposing Harper's position of preventing cannabis legalization. While he thought Canadians would support his standpoint of view, he practically committed political suicide when he stated that marijuana is "infinitely worse" than alcohol.
Things are starting to look up for cannabis in Canada!
