Join us for BC Green Connect. A series of online talks to engage on issues that are important to our party as we move forward in our post-COVID world.
Drug decriminalization vs legalization: What is the best path forward? Presented by Scott E. Bernstein, (he/him/his) Director of Policy, Canadian Drug Policy Coalition
If you want to lessen the harms caused by drug use, why is possession ever a crime? Canada has legalized and regulated the possession of marijuana. Why stop there? Wouldn't the money and effort that goes into prosecuting drug use be better spent on providing better health care for drug users who are experiencing harm?
Join us as Scott Bernstein answers these questions and more, and helps us to understand the pros and cons of drug decriminalization and legalization.
