Alice Finnamore – NDP, Tobique-Mactaquac riding
Finnamore noted today’s marijuana contains more chemicals than it did when she was younger – although she quickly pointed out she didn’t try it – but, Canada does not have enough police or court time to control its sale or use.
Legalizing it, she said, would not only save tax dollars, but would free up the justice system to concentrate on more important criminal activity. “That is why the New Democrats support the legalization of marijuana,” Finnamore said.
