Liberal Party Hypocritical On Marijuana Law Reform
While they were in power, Canada's former Liberal government introduced marijuana reform legislation a number of times ... and then let the Bills die on the order paper session after session, year after year.
Well because they were playing both sides of the political fence at the same time. Let me explain.
If you were absolutely in favour of marijuana law reform, the Liberals pointed to their proposed legislation that would lessen sentences for simple possession. They sounded progressive and sincere. However, if you were not in favour of marijuana law reform, the Liberals pandered to you by NEVER actually passing the many bills that they introduced.
For years, pot reform advocates let the Liberals off the hook, because, 'reform was on the horizon'! The Libs were going to show progressive action on the issue. Hmmm ... not so much.
Because they did nothing, Liberals have some explaining to do!
But what is this, hypocritical Liberal bloggers criticising New Democrats?
Dana Larsen, needs to maybe go and speak at the next federal Liberal convention. Think that will happen ??? ... not so much! As Stephen Harper prepares to increase penalties for simple pot possession and mandatory sentences for any amount of cultivation, will the Liberals support him? I guess we will wait and see.
