Canadian newspapers applaud court’s cannabis decision

Since the July 31 Supreme Court of Ontario decision which unanimously ruled that Canada’s marijuana laws were unconstitutional because they do not allow for the medicinal use of marijuana.
Canada’s leading newspapers have all apploaded the court’s decision, which gave Parliament one year to rewrite the law, or else the marijuana laws would be struck from the books entirely.

Here is a series of links to editorials from most of Canada’s leading newspapers.
