Here We Go Again ... More Phony Liberal 'Policy' on Cannabis Reform ...
"Marijuana legalization could mean thousands of new jobs and a significant tax boon for Canadians, according to a new draft policy paper by the Liberal Party. But the detailed report, released by the Liberals’ B.C branch, argues that low prices and high quality are essential to keep marijuana production out of the black market. The paper states that marijuana prohibition has failed in not only preventing usage among Canada's youth but also in enabling the black market to flourish. Legalization, it argues, is essential to fighting organized crime."

Hold on for one minute!!!! Why should anyone take the Liberals seriously on marijuana reform in Canada?
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... something that Liberals were very good at! Let me explain.
1) 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.
2) 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, year after year and term after term ... Liberals have some explaining to do!
