  14. 14. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca “The Liberal point of view is they can tax it and control it if they legalize it. My own opinion has always been that it should be decriminalized. I don’t really think people should be in jail. I think there are alternatives and we continue to look at that in the NDP.” Rafferty said essentially the decision comes down to economics. “Is there a cost-benefit to doing that? That’s one thing to look at, aside from the fact that people are going to jail that maybe shouldn’t be in jail.” 2013-08-26 at 11:59 “Pot talk“ By Leith Dunick, tbnewswatch.com http://www.tbnewswatch.com/news/295942/Pot-talk Official Party Stance: 3.1h Adopting a harm reduction approach to substance abuse and permitting the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. 3.9i Decriminalizing marijuana possession with the goal of removing it’s production and distribution from the control of organized crime. http://xfer.ndp.ca/2012/2012- 12-17-Email-Convention/Mtl2013_PolicyBook_E.pdf ‘Montreal 2013 NDP Policy John Rafferty, MP New Democratic Party of Canada (450) 371-0644 (seulement la communication française) AnneMinh-Thu.Quach@parl.gc.ca anneminhthuquach.ndp.ca twitter.com/AnneMTQuach facebook.com/pages/Anne-Minh-Thu-Quach/188474554625330 youtube.com/AnneQuach Thunder Bay—Rainy River (Ontario)

We expect no less from someone who believes the budget will balance itself."

  30. 30. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca Prof. Neil Boyd “What I'm saying is that what we're doing isn't really rational. We shouldn't try to pretend that the drugs that are illegal are somehow morally tainted and more deserving of censure than drugs like alcohol and tobacco. I just can't support that claim. It doesn't make any sense.” Andrew Saxton: “You do not agree that marijuana is a currency for...?” Prof. Neil Boyd: “It is in some circumstances, and I agree with the minister that where it is, the law should respond accordingly. If adults are growing marijuana for their own use or using small amounts of marijuana, that ought not to be subject to criminal penalty.” Andrew Saxton: “Okay, but you're making a distinction between personal use and trafficking.” April 30th, 2009 / 10:40 a.m. “Justice Committee on April 30th, 2009“ OpenParliament.ca https://openparliament.ca/committees/justice/40-2/17/andrew-saxton-4/?page=10 http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca/2014/02/andrew-saxton-mp-north-vancouver.html Official Party stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense.

  31. 31. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca Liberal MP Francis Scarpaleggia (Lac-Saint-Louis, Que.) downplayed the significance of the resolution to support the legalization of marijuana to his party’s identity, and shifted attention to the measures that will give power over policy and leadership back to members and supporters. “That’s not the defining resolution,” Mr. Scarpaleggia said of the marijuana resolution. “Where the party was defining itself was more on constitutional amendments. This is where we changed ourselves—with they amendments to the constitution.” Although Mr. Scarpaleggia insisted that the measures will bring significant changes to how the party operates, he conceded that the hard work for the Liberals is only beginning. “I don’t think that that in itself will ensure victory in the next election— it’s only one piece of the puzzle.” [no statement found - 5 June 2014] Jan. 15 / 2012 “Liberals vote to be party of grass, roots“ By KATE MALLOY, CHRIS PLECASH hilltimes.ca http://www.hilltimes.com/news/politics/2012/01/15/liberals-vote-to-be-party-of-grass-roots/29301 http://calgary420.ca/forum/index.php?topic=3515.0 http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca/2014/02/francis-scarpaleggia-mp-lac-saint-louis.html Official Party Stance: Liberals understand the need to consider ending the prohibition of marijuana and addressing the root causes of crime to see real results. http://www.liberal.ca/getting-smart-on-crime-and-cannabis/ Francis Scarpaleggia, MP Liberal Party of Canada (514) 695-6661 francis.scarpaleggia@parl.gc.ca scarpaleggia.ca twitter.com/ScarpaleggiaMP facebook.com/francis.scarpaleggia youtube.com/FrancisScarpaleggia Lac-Saint-Louis (Quebec)
  32. 32. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca "Our strategy to get tough on illegal drugs really concentrates on the traffickers, on the elements that have relationships with organized crime, with violent offenders, or with youth," said Andrew Scheer, Conservative MP for Regina-Qu'Appelle. "It's not anything out of line with what Canadians want." Scheer said he believes the bill would make it more difficult to produce and traffic drugs and be associated with organized crime. 18 December 2007 “Pot protesters oppose Bill C-26“ By: Stefan Schussler, Regina Leader-Post (CN SN) http://www.humanhemphealth.ca/Regina_Leader_Post_121807.html Official Party Stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense.

  34. 34. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca "The position is that we support decriminalization of possession, especially in terms of a priority of decriminalize of youth possession, because in general criminalization is not the way to go. In terms of youth behavior, at the same time it's the case that some kind of a study is needed. It's been 40 years since the really good LeDane commission, and things have changed, understanding science, law enforcement perspectives have changed and we need to figure out how to transition so we can get to a decriminalization of possession."
