CANNABIS CULTURE – Watch Cannabis Culture News LIVE for the latest news and views on pot politics and the marijuana community. In this episode: The Conservative government of Canada has reintroduced nine crime bills as one ominous piece of legislation called Bill C-10. We dissect the bill and discuss the details with Beyond Prohibition Executive Director Kirk Tousaw.
The Conservatives have promised to pass Bill C-10, known as the Safe Streets and Communities Act, within 100 days. And with their majority of seats in the House of Commons, they’re expected to get their way. The new proposal contains the bill formerly known as S-10, which includes mandatory minimum sentences for minor marijuana offences.
Kirk Tousaw, cannabis activist, attorney and Executive Director of the Beyond Prohibition Foundation, joins CCN host Jeremiah Vandermeer to talk about the Harper government’s crime legislation and the impact it will have on Canadians.
