Cannabis is Legal, but not fully Decriminalized

We hope that the legalization of cannabis has brought with it fewer criminal cases against those who grow or trade it. It’s fair to say it has lessened the stigma against cannabis users.

But “legalization” probably hasn’t turned out as many of us had hoped. The production and sale of cannabis is still illegal, except for that which has the government’s stamp of approval. Much like with alcohol, the government’s control over the cannabis industry means they pick winners and losers, drive up prices, and reduce choice.

The BC Libertarian Party believes that more can be done, safely, to free cannabis from excessive red tape. See the articles below for details.

Since 1986, the BC Libertarian Party has called for the decriminalization of all drugs…there’s still a long way to go! Advocate for personal freedom and responsibility with us by becoming a member, volunteering, or donating.
