Sat, 27 Jan 2018 08:00:00 GMT

Suddenly we seem to think there will be a huge increase in usage and that there is money to be made by an all out ban on a soon to be legal substance, even though impairment can't be proven or measured?

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 08:00:00 GMT

The StarPhoenix, 15 Dec 2017 - Re: Rogue nations need not apply (SP, Nov. 18) Pamela McColl's letter is legally correct, but morally and practically wrong.

I was in the General Assembly when the minister of health for the Government of Canada stood to announce Canada's plan to introduce legislation to legalize marijuana in the spring of 2017.
