Riedle had taken his wife, Terri, out to celebrate her birthday - and while she sat at the table enjoying a glass of wine, Riedle was in the back alley, taking hits of marijuana off his vape pen. "The inequities of cannabis, the prohibition, occurred to us numerous times over the years, but there was something about that night. I was really moved to do something about it," Riedle said.

Reflecting the general outlook of the Conservative Party, she's concerned about increasing normalization of marijuana - also about judges making decisions on a substance whose medical value is still disputed. That suggests we need more research on marijuana and its purported health effects. Ambrose might want to tell us what the holdup is there.
