Legal Pot Could Be Short-Lived

Conservative leadership candidate would 're-criminalize' it

As Prime Minister Trudeau continues working toward the legalization of marijuana. Simcoe Grey MP – and Conservative leadership hopeful – Kellie Leitch is drafting a plan to reverse that if she becomes leader and if she gets elected Prime Minister. She told London radio station AM980 she would re-criminalize marjiuana. “I think there are individuals in Canada that require this as a medication, but let’s treat it like any other drug that is a heavy narcotic…put it behind a pharmacy desk…so we know the potency of what people are receiving, and therefore can be safely distributed to those who need it,” Leitch said.
