Canadian supreme court to hear pot laws challenge
    #1436998 - 04/07/03 07:47 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

So, any lawyers out there?

I'm just dying to know how this one is gonna turn out. The court will only look at the law as it applies to Canada's charter of rights and freedoms.

Not with the reality of living next door to the states which parliament must consider...

This is a deliberate case brought before the court by activists who got charged on purpose in order to challenge the laws. So far, all the courts have stated that the charter does not protect against trivial infringments of rights. Like the right to use marijuana. And therefore it is up to parliament to decide.

If Canada legalizes pot, I'll seriously consider moving to Ontario.

Yea, I look forward to this, but didn't they say for possession under 30 grams? I'm gonna follow your link and see if there is new information.

They wont be as strict on pot laws if change is happening,...
Its already strted here in vancouver.  Police are no longer arresting for possesion.  What about decriminalizing it?  I heard that was scheduled much sooner, but it could just be in bc.  But with decriminalization they can fine you for smoking a joint, or having some.....talk about creating a new industry to replace our lumber and fishing ones. :tongue:  Buerocracy makes me sick.

Canada's gotta get back in bed with the States somehow. They disagree with the war, and have not joined the coaliton of the willing. Can they afford to legalize pot as well?
