    At least according to the Justice Minister, who says the government will introduce legislation early (3-4 months) in 2003. They are still waiting on the final commons report on the subject, due in November, (which means sometime in January). But since the first senate report recommended that marijuana should be legal to anyone over 16!!!! It is so nice to live in a country where we don't have a DEA that sticks to 50 year old reports on how bad marijuana is. And the war on drugs is actually on drugs not people. (also included in the article were suggests to create more treatment centre's to help the addicted people rather than just locking them up, like the brilliant people in the DEA.

    1 more point....

    "The United States has the highest use of marijuana in the world with the most punitive drug laws," Martin says. "That should tell them something.

    "We know the status quo is a failure. The war on drugs has been a failure."

    --------------------------------------------------note !

    I bring this up as a political / legal subject.
    Not as an excuse to brag about blunts and other such irrelevant comments. - thanks

    It really isnt that big of a deal though unless you traffic some serious amounts of trees. The current law states that if you're caught for possession of 30 grams or less all you recieve is a fine with no jail time but it is progress none the less. all that the current law does is tie up our courts.

    I watched the comittee speaches live this morning, and one thing that they proposed seemed to make sence.
    Instead of a court date that will probably get thrown out, you'll get a hefty fine.
    If you dont pay that fine, your driver's liscense gets cut off.

    How's that for incentive!?

    I almost made this topic like 4 or 5 times since I heard. it makes sense. we're close to it already out west. fuck, in my neighbourhood they wont even nail you for possesion if you have rock. The courts are so busy they refuse to take simple possesion cases, so the cops have come right out and said they wont charge people. they'll just confiscate it and warn you.

    and I like the sounds of the fine system. just like transit tickets....whip out the fake id and start stacking up the unpaid tickets. just ask my man ben sherman, he knows the deal...
