CBC Windsor: Windsor pot proponents support task force recommendations

[CBC Windsor] Windsor proponents for the legalization of marijuana support the latest federal recommendations that outline how pot should be produced, sold and taxed in Canada.

Those recommendations, released Tuesday by a federal task force, say the provinces should regulate sales to prevent the illegal sale of marijuana.

The federal government promised to legalize pot during the last election campaign. 

Windsor-based Canadian Cannabis Confederation applauded the report. Founder Jon Liedtke says it’s a move in the right direction. 

“By normalizing this substance, by allowing people to migrate out of the black market and adjust the marketplace as a whole, then the black market shrinks,” he said.
