Never too many. The problem is too few prisons not too many prisoners.

Cuba would be easier logistically speaking and they could do with some diversity.

There's never too many people in jails if there's a single criminal running free

If someone could convince the UK governing body to legalize weed I'd be entirely grateful thanks in advance

Look, our approach on legalizing marijuana is not about creating a boutique industry or bringing in tax revenue, it’s based on two very simple principles:

The first one is, young people have easier access to cannabis now, in Canada, than they do in just about any other countries in the world. [Of] 29 different countries studied by the U.N., Canada was number one in terms of underage access to marijuana. And whatever you might think or studies seen about cannabis being less harmful than alcohol or even cigarettes, the fact is it is bad for the developing brain and we need to make sure that it’s harder for underage Canadians to access marijuana. And that will happen under a controlled and regulated regime.

The other piece of it is there are billions upon billions of dollars flowing into the pockets of organized crime, street gangs and gun-runners, because of the illicit marijuana trade, and if we can get that out of the criminal elements and into a more regulated fashion we will reduce the amount of criminal activity that’s profiting from those, and that has offshoots into so many other criminal activities. So those are my focuses on that.

I have no doubt that Canadians and entrepreneurs will be tremendously innovative in finding ways to create positive economic benefits from the legalization and control of marijuana, but our focus is on protecting kids and protecting our streets.

Trudeau is so perfect. Look at his promises.



You can't seriously think that's what the government decided upon as a real reason when the reporters weren't around I hope.

Yeah because nobody under 18 has access to alcohol or cigarettes. No amount of control or regulation, besides getting rid of it all, will stop that from happening. How could anything stop someone from going into a store, buying some, then taking it to their underage friend?
