The Canadian cannabis community has launched a formal “Parliamentary e-petition” which outlines an eight-point path for legalization. Main points include an immediate end to cannabis arrests, including personal cultivation within legalization, and allowing Canadian farmers to harvest cannabis resin.
Green Party Leader Elizabeth May has sponsored the petition, and we received over 6,000 signatures in our first week online. People can keep signing up until June 9, 2016.
Right now our petition has the 4th most signatures. We’d like to get 50,000 signatures in total. This would give us more support than any other online petition, and keep the pressure on the Trudeau government to act quickly, stop arrests, and get going on legalization.
