City of Vancouver calls for legal regulatory framework for marijuana.
    #4341276 - 06/27/05 03:05 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

The city of vancouver has called for a legal regulatory framework, that would focus on harm reduction and education. This comes as Bill-C17 hangs in the balance to decriminalize possesion of small amounts of marijuana in canada. If it passes, growing 1-3 plants, would be illegal though the maximum punishment is $1000 and 6 months of jail, at the discretion of the judge. Basically though, the police have said that if there is no evidence of it leaking into the black market, the police are not concerned. (not unlike the present situation in british columbia.)

But.. each time they attempt to pass the bill, american DEA ask for a meeting with the justice minister, who then delays the vote the very next day.

Unfortunately this is the reality of the situation even though polls show canadians overwhelmingly support this motion.

However, its nice to see progress in the canadian government to recognise the failure of prohibition.

Peace,
John

The DEA speculation was taken off of a CBC.ca news report
I don't have any real sources saying that the DEA blocked this motion intrinisically, though it is highly suspicious, considering the turn of events. The DEA also said there would be consequences at the border if the marijuana laws were slackened.
