Today the Supreme Court of Canada ruled 6-3 that Canada’s marijuana laws are constitutional, and that jailing someone for small amounts of pot is not against the constitution.
I’m upset by this ruling. The onus is on Paul Martin now to make the pot bill – which was prorogued by Jean Chretien, effectively killing the bill – come to life again and be passed this spring. Hopefully it will be, because Canadians in general don’t seem particularly against the idea of decriminalization.
HOLIDAY CHAOS: Okay, Christmas is a lovely time of year but man I could do without the chaos and crowds! I don’t know a single person who enjoys the traffic and people in malls, on the roads, et al. Once Christmas is over, things will start to calm down.
