Marijuana Legalization Canada: Liberal Party Lays Out Detailed Economic Plan For Pot
Legalizing marijuana in Canada would create thousands of jobs and become a significant new source of tax revenue, the Liberal Party says in a new draft policy paper — but only if the government can get weed prices down and quality up.

The report, from the B.C. branch of the party, estimates Canada would need a network of 2,700 retail outlets to sell to the country’s estimated three million regular pot smokers.

It recommends using provincial liquor store networks as part of the infrastructure to deliver marijuana, a similar approach to the one being taken in Washington state, where pot prohibition was ended by popular vote last fall.

“We recommend legal marijuana be sold to the public through specialty private stores and/or anywhere regulated liquor sales take place,” the report states.

The Liberal Party voted overwhelmingly to make marijuana legalization a part of its official platform at its biennial convention last year.

But any effort to wrest the marijuana industry from the hands of organized crime will require legal pot sellers to provide a higher quality product at a lower price, the report argues.

“To be successful and prevent organized crime from maintaining a black market, the price of legal marijuana must be lower than it is now. At the same time, the product’s quality must be at least as good – if not better,” the report states.

I don't want to derail your thread, and am certainly for legalization, however, I have been trying to find out the answer to the following question and thought maybe someone here could help. Do you have to ingest the pot oil to cure prostate cancer, or can you rub it on?
I actually very serious. A friend has it and would probably use it if it can be rubbed on, however, not if he has to ingest it. Thanks in advance:)

It is not just potency, there must also be genetic diversity. Making it legal will allow people to start bringing back the original land races in their natural state and stop having to cross breed everything with indica in order to keep it small.

Fuck the Liberals. They could have legalized it anytime they were in power, before they were relegated to third party status.

Everybody knows that Justin's parents smoked marijuana. The fact Pierre Trudeau never legalised it and his son now makes an issue of it speaks to their hypocrisy.

The Liberals are just grasping for relevancy with recycled promises that are never kept.

Politics have changed. The voters back then didn't have the same perceptions of voters today.

As a political figurehead, it's not hypocrisy to represent your constituents, even against your own beliefs.

He can use it as a suppository for prostate cancer. This will avoid having to take it orally, if that is an issue?
This is not a joke either, cannabis suppositories are great for nausea, and are correctly located for optimal prostate exposure to the medication. Both coca butter and glycerine are commonly used base. Here is a recipe with beeswax, that uses ground cannabis.

[link to michiganmedicalmarijuana.org]

Suppositories
Medical marijuana can be easily converted into suppository form. Here’s how.

Begin with medical marijuana flour. For maximum efficacy in suppository form, medical marijuana needs to be pulverized to dust. Suppository kits, beeswax and molds are available in health food stores and online.

Caution, beeswax is flammable. And hot wax is hot. The safest way to melt the beeswax is in a double boiler. If you must use a microwave use a low power setting, stop when the wax is half melted and then carefully stir to finish liquefying.

Once the beeswax has melted, gently stir in an equal measure of medical marijuana flour. The resulting 50:50 mixture should then be molded into shape while still warm. Roll into cylinders or pour into a mold and when cool wrap and store suppositories in waxed paper. Suppositories should be kept in a separate, clearly marked container inside your refrigerator.

Medical marijuana suppositories are well suited for patients who are unable to eat or smoke medical marijuana.

frankly I can't vote conservative till there someone in charge that I trust. Really we will need a balance between the two principles. Neither philosophy will work on it own.

Then you had better start rattling cages within your own party.

Harper is dead set against legalizing it. I have conversed with the office. That was his stand.

Reality is, and we all know it, pot is not a big deal here. Everyone does it. The arrests appear to be dog and pony shows to placate the anti crowd and bust up those that are getting too big for their britches. Get my drift.

I will never understand how pot can be illegal and alcohol legal. Never.
