Justin Trudeau on Marijuana Legalization

canadaCanada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau isn’t legalizing marijuana to please the people who smoke it.

“People are right now breaking the law,” the prime minister told the Toronto Star’s editorial board. He called the recent flood of new storefront dispensaries in cities like Toronto, “frustrating.”

The government is legalizing pot to prevent kids from accessing it, and to prevent criminal organizations from profiting off it, he said. “So, I don’t know how much clearer we can be that we’re not legalizing marijuana to please recreational users.”
