Police arrest man operating 420 marijuana vending cart

The absurd laws that make marijuana illegal continue to impinge of lives. In Victoria, Canada, police spotted a 22-year-old man operating what appeared to be a marijuana delivery service.

The suspect’s cart cried the legends “420 delivery, no minors”.

Lest you think this a stunt, know that police officers found the man to be in possession of 50 grams of weed. As he awaits a December court date, we wonder why weed is illegal in Canada?

In April 2016, Canada’s health minister, Jane Philpott, opined: “We will introduce legislation in spring 2017 that ensures we keep marijuana out of the hands of children and profits out of the hands of criminals. We will work with law enforcement partners to encourage appropriate and proportionate criminal justice measures. We know it is impossible to arrest our way out of this problem.”

So why bother?

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party declared:

Canada’s current system of marijuana prohibition does not work. It does not prevent young people from using marijuana and too many Canadians end up with criminal records for possessing small amounts of the drug.

See above.

…We will remove marijuana consumption and incidental possession from the Criminal Code…

So will everyone arrested for possession of the stinking weed get a pardon when the new laws are passed?
