Justin Trudeau’s hazy marijuana legislation
In a rush to meet his self-imposed political deadline, Justin Trudeau has failed to adequately address the many concerns of municipalities, law enforcement, employers, scientists and doctors about his cannabis legalization legislation.
For example, the Trudeau government confirmed that there is no conclusive way to determine if someone is driving high. This has left our law enforcement officials in limbo, with several police forces across the country refusing to use government-approved testers.
The safety concerns of employers, workers and Indigenous communities have not been addressed. And to add insult to injury, Justin Trudeau has failed to explain how his plan will keep marijuana out of the hands of children, and profits out of the hands of criminals.
The lack of public education has left many Canadians unsure of the new rules and how this will impact border crossings between Canada and the United States
Trudeau’s lack of leadership on his signature file has resulted in uneven rules for every province, territory, and municipality, creating uncertainty and confusion from coast to coast.
