Marijuana policy has been a very popular topic in Canadian politics. The Conservatives are on a full court press, trying to put out as much reefer madness propaganda as possible. Attacks on Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau have been constant. Flyers were recently distributed stating that, 'The Liberals WANT to make buying marijuana a normal, everyday activity for young Canadians.' That statement of course couldn't be farther from the truth.
The recent media blitz from the Conservatives has prompted the NORML Women's Alliance Canada to put out their own radio ad. The radio ad states the following:
"There's so much I worry about as a Mom. Stephen Harper thinks that organized crime should continue to profit from marijuana prohibition. Imagine regulating marijuana like alcohol with a strong and clear educational message, making it MORE difficult for my kids and your kids to access. Drug dealers don't ask for I.D. Stephen Harper does not have the kind of judgement we need to protect our children". Authorized by the NORML Women's Alliance of Canada
I hope the radio ad gets spread far and wide up in Canada. In order to run the ad in as many markets as possible, it will require a lot of money. I encourage you to make a donation to the NORML Women's Alliance Canada if you are able to do so. You can make a donation at this link here.
