Decriminalization, Marijuana, Opposition motions, Possession of a controlled substance,

Décriminalisation, Marijuana, Possession de substance désignée

Mr. Speaker, as I travelled around my riding and met with students, both before and after the election, they all asked questions about marijuana. Everyone wanted to know where I stand. I have always been clear. I am in favour of legalizing marijuana. Not a single student thanked me for changing the rules because they thought it was great that they could now smoke. That is not the case. That is not what the vast majority of them think. They really understand what is going on.

Who does my colleague think will control the market if we go ahead with decriminalization without any other changes? Who will control the marijuana market in Canada?

Monsieur le Président, quand j'ai fait le tour de ma circonscription et que j'ai rencontré les élèves, avant et depuis l'élection, ils ont tous posé des questions sur la marijuana. Tout le monde voulait connaître ma position. J'ai toujours été clair. J'appuie la légalisation de la marijuana. Or pas un seul étudiant ne m'a remercié d'avoir changé la réglementation parce que c'est super de pouvoir fumer maintenant. Ce n'est pas le cas. Ils ne pensent pas cela dans la grande majorité. Ils comprennent vraiment ce qui se passe.

Selon mon collègue, qui va contrôler le marché si on met en avant la décriminalisation sans faire aucun autre changement? Qui va contrôler le marché de la marijuana dans ce pays?
