Canadian Judge Rules Pot Possession Laws Unconstitutional
A man appeared before the Judge for a minor possession charge. He argued that the federal government has only made it policy to provide marijuana to those who need it, but never made it an actual law. Because of that, he argued, ALL possession laws in Canada, whether medicinal or not, should be quashed.
The Judge AGREED! The case was dismissed.
Federal prosecutors and other assorted legal types will be scratching their heads on the ruling, wondering what to do to shore up this hole in the laws which maintain prohibition in Canada.
