We have to look at both of those and try to see where there is a balance. I would suspect that any crime involving children and sexual activity would have the harshest of penalties applied. Instead there seems to be a difference in how that would be applied. We do not support the idea of someone growing marijuana plants either, but it certainly should not have a stricter penalty, or at least both of them should be at the appropriate level. If we are truly talking about protecting the vulnerable, we have to do far more than what is written in Bill C-10."

I inhaled too,” Simms said (making reference to the Bill Clinton admission that he had smoked but “never inhaled.”) When asked if he had smoked as a sitting member of parliament, however, Simms said he had no comment. “I've never performed my job high or drunk, as for outside of my job, that's for me,” Simms said. “I didn't get into office personally to talk about my Friday nights with friends and what exactly I do.” September 04, 2013 “Simms calls for mature debate on pot issue: Liberal MP admits to using marijuana, comes out in favour of legalization” Andrea Gunn gfwadvertiser.ca http://www.gfwadvertiser.ca/News/Regional/2013-09-04/article-3374801/Simms-calls-for-mature-debate-on-pot-issue/1 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/ Bonavista-Gander-Grand Falls-Windsor (Newfoundland and Labrador)

In regards to the NDP, we were the first party to support decriminalization in 1999. At our convention in 2011 a more updated resolution was passed (see below). Although the resolution begins with a position on InSite, it ends with a clear direction for a non-criminal, regulatory approach. I have consistently opposed prohibition drug policies as harmful and archaic, and supported the need for drug policy reform. I will continue to work for this. Thanks for writing.

As well as a public awareness campaign, this will include community based drug use and crime prevention initiatives. We could spend our entire time speaking about the opportunities that we have in prevention, but the drug strategy does more than that.

I support measures to make insignificant/recreational use of cannabis subject to fines instead of imprisonment - per Chiefs of Police proposals. Sam Vekemans: Thanks for your response. It will be publicly noted, and shared so others won't have to ask you again. Cannabis is not as dangerous as one might think. What is 'insignificant' when the raw plant is not taken into consideration? Juicing the raw plant leaves, or making the plant into an Oil, has great benefits, but not considered. It is unethical to prohibit a plant that was criminalized based on lies and propaganda. http://www.cnn.com/.../gupta-medical-marijuana/index.html Bruce Stanton: Interesting. I would hope uses of the plant that don't involve intoxication could not be considered "criminal". However, it raises issues of control on how one would enforce these other uses. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Our Party leader, Tom Mulcair, is currently involved in discussions with the Canadian Medical Association on how to best prescribe cannabis (currently, there are no established guidelines, and the medical community has expressed that it needs time before moving to legalization to work out best practices). We believe this issue is too important to too many Canadians to not do it properly - so we are eager to continue our policy discussions around cannabis with experts and other groups.

Just as there is a trade in marijuana and a trade in crack cocaine, there is a trade in heroin, and the problem with the trade in heroin is that with it come some very unacceptable consequences of disease and death and the exposure of small children to very dangerous things. That is the type of thing that InSite is attempting to prevent, and that is the kind of thing for which these places need to exist.
