The end of prohibition — and the increasing expectation that the Trudeau government will expunge the records of all Canadians with minor cannabis possession convictions — is all well and good in principle.

Recreational cannabis will be sold online in Ontario when legalized this fall and in private retail stores across the province early next year, the government announced Monday, reversing the previous administration’s plan to distribute cannabis through publicly owned outlets.
