PM Pothead to announce marijuana will be legal by July 1, 2018

The Liberal government will announce legislation next month that will legalize marijuana in Canada by July 1, 2018.

CBC News has learned that the legislation will be announced during the week of April 10 and will broadly follow the recommendation of a federally appointed task force that was chaired by former liberal Justice Minister Anne McLellan.

  • If Justin legalizes it, then I’m going to quit.

    With a failing popularity, this is an attempt to raise it. Promising and doing are two very different things when it comes to the Liberals and NDP.

    • They are desperate, the Pot vote isn’t exactly a reliable constituency, even legalization cannot reverse the fact that the people who voted for him now realize he is an empty suit.

          It has been proven that marijuana does have anti-emetic properties.

          They want me make sure they have a large passive proportion of the populace before the 2018 re-election of Kathleen Wynne who can look at her without throwing up!

    July 1. How patriotic. I’m ashamed to be a Canadian

    • We are also “celebrating” our first year as “…a non-Nation State”. 149 years as a Sovereign Nation-State, and on the 150th all hell breaks loose.

    “Childhood marijauna use can affect brain function and lower IQ” – isn’t that what the progressives want, more compliant sheeple?

    • Justin wants people on his level.

      • Frances

        Or lower.

      Just wait until the final results come to pass from Obama’s rampant spending, Yellen’s money printing, the ECB’s money printing, CMHC buying (I think) about $180 Billion in very risky mortgages from BMO, CIBC and National Bank after the Global Financial Crisis, etcetera.

      When the housing, equities and fixed income markets crash, the Liberals will need people with lower IQ’s and anesthetized to ensure the people will not rise up against them.

    Justin’s political strategy – “Yeah, I’m a terrible PM… Have a doobie and forget about everything!” πŸ˜‰

    I don’t think legalization will ever happen, but IF it does, maybe they’ll get Willie to do the “roll-out”:

    Not if our pal Bill Blair has anything to do with it…There are regulations to write, provinces to consult, municipal governments to chat to. Plus, as an added bonus, plenty of rather boring pot shops to bust.

    Right now there is a war inside the Liberal Party between the fairly libertarian hippies and the adult supervision who want to regulate pot good and hard.

    There is also a fairly significant libertarian groundswell of pot shop owners who are “jumping the gun” and getting into business early. Chief Blair is more than willing to kick down doors and take names (not to mention charging people for trafficking and money laundering). The hippie libertarians in Cabinet are too stupid or too stoned to notice how the prohibitionists have taken charge of “legalization”. All at the behest of big money “legal” growers.

    It’s a mess.

    • The Liberals must protect their fellow Liberal investors.

    Legalizing marijuana isn’t the end of the world.
    Here in California we have this sham of a “medical marijuana” that allowed anyone with any kind of a complaint to get one on demand and then they can buy more Ganga than Bob Marley could have dreamed of, and in an infinitely more potent form.
    I don’t touch the stuff but it’s now essentially legal for anyone over 21.

      The issue in Canada is the alt left does not think there should be any laws around it.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Eventually, there won’t be any other than an age restriction.
        It’s just the way things are headed.

  • Gary

    Looks like George Smithemen and Bill Blair were smart to buy a huge piece of land outside Toronto to grow pot one day .

  • Clausewitz

    The only reason why I would like more people smoking pot is that in the end there will be less competition for the primo jobs.
