Parliamentary Committee Hears Call For Legal Regulation Of All Drugs

Posted on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 11:51 AM

The Canadian Drug Policy Coalition has told the Parliamentary Health Committee on Marijuana it supports the legal regulation of all drugs, not just marijuana.

Senior Policy Analyst Scott Bernstein says criminalising young people for smoking pot has not proven to be a deterrence.

Bernstein argues the legal regulation of all drugs would retake control of a dangerous unregulated market that supports organised crime.

The Drug Policy Coalition also supports the legal age of using marijuana be set at 18.
