A former attorney general wants an end the criminalization of marijuana in Canada, on the back of Tuesday’s announcement in Washington and Colorado to approve the legalization of its recreational use for adults.

Geoff Plant has joined other British Columbians in support of de-criminalizing the use of marijuana and is optimistic Canada will eventually relax its laws.
“Still a long road to go here in Canada , but it’s a big boost,” he told Power Play on Thursday. “Now it looks as though the American voters are getting ahead of at least the government in Canada. So I feel encouraged by what happened this week.”

An Angus Reid report revealed 75 per cent of B.C. residents feel that the government should legalize the use of marijuana and that it should be taxed.

“We have mainstreamed the conversation. We have identified the people who are part of this movement. What we have to do now is figure out how to mobilize our energy and cause federal politicians to pay attention,” said Plant. “The prime minister is a very smart politician. One day he’ll wake up and realize he is swimming against the tide of Canadians on this issue and we’ll see change. I believe it. ”

    Geoff Plant you are an idiot.You are optimistic Canada will eventually relax its laws ? Geoff PLant you are an idiot!When will the laws be relaxed ? When we are all dead ? Maybe sir youve got a lot of time on your hands and can be optimistic but the truth is many canadians dont have your patience.
    Geoff Plant you are an idiot.Daring to say that prime minister is a smart politician ? He is an idiot just like you.
    Thinking that he will wake up ? When you are in deep coma unless a miracle happens few people ever wake up.Also I dont like the way you dress: Your suit should harbor a pot leaf not a poppy leaf.I think you are an idiot. Go back to your office and if you have time why dont you read the LeDain commission report and the senatorial committe report on marijuana

    I bet the next U.S. state to try a legalize vote will have a huge increase in the smoker vote. Now that they see it was done by somebody else & now they know it is possible.
