Default Marijuana to be Legal in Canada??

Hey there fellow Canucks (and American friends)!

The Liberal party of Canada has declared the war on drugs to be a failure and are promising to legalize marijuana if elected… and this is exciting news because we're not talking about some small party that never gets any votes here-- this is a major political party which has formed the government for well over a decade.

And this after the party currently in power has moved to make sentences for something as simple as possession much longer and more severe…

All I can say is FINALLY! I'm not such a big pothead right but I had my time and I can say without a doubt keeping it illegal is ridiculous, and making the penalties for possession more severe can only be seen as ignorant and even a little fascist.

Four more years guys-- and then I want to see absolutely everyone on this forum who has citizenship going out to vote!!!

Bullshit, they are lying through their teeth like they always do. They just want the "stoner" vote so they can try to beat the conservatives. The liberals are the least trustworthy party in Canada, I will never believe a damn thing they say. I laugh at all the people who hate the Conservatives and then go vote liberal. One is just as bad as the other, stop deluding yourselves.

(By the way I do not vote, not because I do not care, but because there are no parties in my area that I can support. Liberal, Conservative, NDP, Green... they are all terrible.)

yep..when youre the lowest of the low with zero chance of winning a majority you can promise anything in the effort to get the uninformed vote

NDP and Green Party both have platforms to legalize. And they are MUCH more trustworthy than the liberals IMO

Well people can wish for the best, you know?
Go Canada, go!
If this does work out in the future, then it's just another reason for me to hurry up and visit Canada.

You're crazy if you think the liberals would ever legalize marijuana. I don't even think the NDP would.

I'm not a pot smoker (I've never touched the stuff) but I think that this is a great idea.

Less people wrongfully imprisoned means less packed spaces, and more people in the working force.

Pot legalization would give Canada a new multi-million dollar market (multi-billion, even! B.C. would be a great place to grow the stuff) and could help make the recession have less of an impact on people.
