Liberals on offensive over support to legalize marijuana

The Liberal Party blitzed an email to thousands of party supporters and members last Friday, arguing the Conservative position in favor of maintaining criminal laws prohibiting marijuana possession will only prop up a regime that has failed to keep teenagers from using cannabis, while evidence in the U.S. over the past year shows legalization works.

Although the Conservatives have focused on Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, legalization of cannabis has been Liberal Party policy since 2012, and Mr. Anderson said it would have been a mistake for Mr. Trudeau to remain on the defensive. The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
