Canada. Marc Emery challenges slow pace of cannabis reform
Marc Emery, the Canadian ‘Prince of Pot’ has reacted to the controversial police decision to raid dozens of illegal Canadian cannabis dispensaries recently. Despite Prime Minister Trudeau committing Canada to legal cannabis the new laws are not yet finalised. Eager enthusiasts took the chance to open their cannabis dispensaries anyway, and the police reacted with numerous raids. Marc Emery said that public complaints about marijuana dispensaries had to be balanced with the “thousands” of people who “vote with their feet and their dollars” when they buy marijuana at these dispensaries.
