Canadian Judge Rules Pot Possession Laws Unconstitutional

CBC is reporting on a case of particular interest this week. A Judge in Toronto ruled yesterday that Canadian laws concerning the possession of cannabis are 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.

CBC has more.

lets hope this leads to decriminalization so we can spend our tax dollars on more important things.
