Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ran an election like many have, promising change and progress on many issues dear to voters'. Once elected, like many elections in the past, voters are left to wonder what issues he will keep his word on and what he fibbed about to get votes. Shortly after his election, the Prime Minister sent a letter to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada mandating a federal process be started to legalize and regulate marijuana in Canada. Unlike US plans to allow states to legalize at their will like Bernie Sanders' bill, Trudeau's mandate would legalize and regulate through the entire coutnry.
Justin Trudeau recently issued a letter giving mandates to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada. Among many mandates was the following in regards to marijuana:
Working with the Ministers of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness and Health, create a federal-provincial-territorial process that will lead to the legalization and regulation of marijuana.
