It’s difficult to understand why our prime minister continues to let anyone be criminally charged and convicted for possession of marijuana – a substance he thinks should be legal. A substance he has smoked.
As we learned years ago, Trudeau smoked marijuana in the time since being elected MP. Some Conservatives tried to make a big deal of it. But most Canadians gave the story a pass.
Back then, Trudeau and the Liberals voted with the Conservatives to set mandatory minimum sentences for marijuana possession. It was a terrible decision. But it was a Liberal caucus decision. And Trudeau was not leader yet. So Trudeau can again get a pass.
