Canada Creates Marijuana Legalization Task Force

Canada’s Department of Justice has created a task force to advise the federal government on in its plans to legalize recreational marijuana.

Anne McLellan, a deputy prime minister under former Prime Minister Paul Martin, will chair the nine-member panel, the CBC reported. McLellan also served as a health and justice minister.

“The task force will use what it has heard to advise the government on the design of the legislation and the regulatory framework that will include a new system of strict marijuana sales and distribution,” Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould told a news conference in Ottawa Thursday, according to the CBC.

The task force has been told to report back by November. Its recommendations will be made public. The government plans to introduce legalization legislation next spring.

    God is good, and made seed bearing herbs.
    God’s brand of hemp seeds are delicious. Try ’em!
    God is conspiring to influence the task force.
    The task force is either with GOD, or with
    Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould.
