LISTEN: Justin Trudeau says legalize pot
The leader of the Federal Liberal Party has come out in favour of legalizing marijuana.
Justin Trudeau was speaking to an audience in a park in Kelowna, British Columbia on July 23 when he noticed someone in the crowd carrying a sign urging the decriminalization of marijuana.
The Montreal-area MP told spectators that he is in favour of not just decriminalizing pot but legalizing it so it can be regulated and taxed. He said regulation is the only way to keep the drug out of the hands of minors.
He also called the current "war on drugs" approach to marijuana a failure.
