Bill C-45: a characteristically Canadian model of cannabis reform
The Canadian model of cannabis reform is focused on improving public health and protecting our kids. It will be constrained, conservative, and reflective of middle-ground Canadian values.
Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould is the lead minister on the legalization of marijuana. After 45-years of research and reflection it’s clear that Canada has taken its time. Colorado had only 14 months to design and launch a new legal cannabis regime. Canada’s fully developed model will spend the same amount of time just being scrutinized by both Houses of Parliament, writes Senator Tony Dean.
