Stop The Legalization of Marijuana
We, the undersigned citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada vote against Bill C-45. Under Bill C-45 Section 8 it states that “it is prohibited for a young person to distribute cannabis of one or more classes of cannabis the total amount of which is equivalent . . . to more than 5 g of dried cannabis”. This allows children between the ages of 12 and 18 to be able to possess around ten joints! It is a proven, scientific fact that smoking cannabis harms a child’s development in numerous ways. This drug should not be made available to young people.
