Canada’s Liberal party to consider making all illicit drugs legal

Canada’s Liberal party to consider making all illicit drugs legal

Members of Canada’s Liberal party are meeting this week at their national convention in Halifax.

Advocates for the proposal point to successes in Portugal, where all drug use was decriminalized in 2001.

Canada’s Liberal party is led nationally by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who will attend the convention.

However, after recently passing legislation for legalizing marijuana, the Prime Minister said his party would not pursue the decriminalization of any other drugs.

Liberal Member of Parliament Nathaniel Erskine-Smith told The Guardian about the reasoning behind the movement: “It’s one of the few issues where we’re taught from a young age, that drugs are bad and that it’s normal to throw people in jail for using drugs.
