A big down for the Canadian pot revolution
    #1987403 - 10/07/03 06:14 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Latest court ruling...

Possession only legal for medical neccessity...(not recreational)

For those not following the story so far...a few years ago the courts ruled that med pot must be made legal for those who need it...and Ottawa(Canada's federal government) must provide a legal avenue of supply. If not, then the courts would not uphold the prohibition of marijuana.

A day before the deadline, Ottawa came up with regulations for med pot access, but, since the courts ordered a change in law, not a change in regulations, the Ontario courts quit convicting on posession.

This precedent spread a bit in Canada. It was upheld in 3 other provinces, (legalizing simple possesion in Ontario, BC, Nova Scotia and PEI)



The cases were appealed by the government, lost by the government and appealed again this time to the highest court in Ontario.

This time, the government won back some ground.


Canada's law against possessing small amounts of pot came back into effect today after the Ontario Court of Appeal struck down parts of Ottawa's medicinal marijuana program.

Next up...Supreme court challenge of recreational marijuana use...decision soon...

Agreed.
