Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister is just one of many Canadian politicians who has come out for a delay in the legalization of marijuana. There comes a point in time when you have to really take a hard look at the arguments put forth by the anti-marijuana politicians. When the arguments are examined it becomes quite clear that every point put forth has already been discussed, debated and answered. Still, politicians cling to outdated belief systems and straw man arguments in hopes of putting off the inevitable.
Pallister believes that everyone needs to sit back and relax and put marijuana legalization “on the back burner” for another year. His arguments claim that allowing legalization without the extra year to debate it, will result in a “hodge-podge” of policies that vary from province to province in regards to things like age requirements. The nonsensical argument ignores the fact that currently, each province mandates their own alcohol policy, which hasn’t caused consumers or lawmakers to lose any sleep. Pallister also argues for further clarification on issues related to impaired driving and health concerns, both of which have been discussed in public forums at length.
Pallister has set to try to convince PM Trudeau to delay the legalization, and already begun reaching out to colleagues to aid in his cause. At this point, there are no valid arguments left to postpone or otherwise delay the pending legalization. Canada is blazing a new path which will open up the economy, promote international trade and prove to the rest of the world that marijuana is something to be embraced, and not to be feared.
