The legalization of marijuana is our generation’s answer to the prohibition of alcohol. Although the true rate of marijuana use among North American adults varies depending on who’s asking, it is generally accepted that a substantial portion of the population uses, has used or will use marijuana at some point. A good indicator of this is the recent decisions by the Washington and Colorado electorates to legalize marijuana in those states. Marijuana is also legal in Portugal, Uruguay and the Netherlands. Despite its high usage, legislators around the world and here in Canada have clung to the notion that marijuana should remain illegal. Their position is outdated and must change.
