MP Says Cannabis Legislation Flawed

Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner MP Glen Motz feels the federal government is rushing the legislation through to fulfill a campaign promise.

Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner MP Glen Motz says the recently table cannabis legislation still has a lot of unanswered questions.  Motz believes the legislation will not get rid of any criminal element after it's legalized and that minors will be able to get it easier than they already can.  Motz tells CJCY News, the taxation issue is another big item that needs to be properly addressed.  Motz says, "Let's ensure that the costs of implementation of this, to provinces and municipalities is covered by the federal government tax on this."  Motz personally would like to see the legislation scrapped entirely, but at the very least pushed back to work on many of the unanswered questions.  ~~  Warren Affleck
