A significant minority of Canadians use marijuana. They are criminals. We've been talking about marijuana law reform since the Le Dain Commission report of 1972. In B.C., almost two thirds of us favour decrimilizing possession for personal use. Yet lack of consensus has kept legislators from initiating substantive reform. While decriminalization is a federal matter, provincial positions will help shape national policy.
Of course, It's complicated
The use, production and sale of marijuana are seen by many as different issues. Calls for harsher penalties for those who grow and sell marijuana are legion. But in order for people to use it must be grown and, usually, sold.
The bottom line
Do you support decriminalization or legalization of marijuana use, and if so which do you prefer? Should the production and sale of marijuana for personal, recreational use be permitted in a controlled manner?
