Vancouver MP Claims Liberal Party Promoting Marijuana to Kids

In an election-style flyer mailed to her constituents, Vancouver South Conservative MP Wai Young claims Liberal leader Justin Trudeau is promoting marijuana to children.

The flyer also features a photo of a young person who is about to light a joint and says Liberal policies would make it easier for children to smoke pot.

In the flyer, the Conservative Party claims the Liberal policy of legalizing and deregulating marijuana will make it easier to access cannabis.

But the Liberal party policy on marijuana says it will take special steps to educate and promote awareness of the health risks of marijuana use among youth. 

The Liberal Party says the flyer is riddled with misleading information.

Vancouver South riding association president Stewart McGillivray says there’s no truth to the Conservative claim.

“Justin Trudeau has been extremely clear that we don’t want our children more easily able to access this, that it does have harmful effects in many cases.” he said.

“I think Wai Young knows that, so I wish she would act a bit more maturely on the issue.”
