How refreshing: a politician who thinks sensibly about cannabis. Prime Minister Trudeau is correct: you don’t need to enjoy marijuana or want access to it to support its legalization. Legalization speaks for itself. It’s good for the economy as it creates jobs and generates tax revenue. It’s good for those that use cannabis medicinally and/or recreationally and it’s good for disempowering the black market. The regulation of which Trudeau speaks is both practical and based on actual evidence from places that have already legalized. What a welcome difference from Jeff Sessions’ comments, about which we wrote last week and other cannabis comments the Trump administration.
We aren’t asking for much. Just common sense, not scare tactics.
