Mr. Speaker, first, I am aware of my colleague’s past, and I am surprised and disappointed with his position.
He is saying that, because the penalties imposed on young people in the past had no effect, we should give up. That means that we are unable to curb the distribution and sale of drugs.
Mr. Speaker, correct me if I should not be saying this, but that is a cowardly approach. It is unacceptable, because it means shirking our responsibilities. Instead of dealing with the problem, we are legalizing marijuana because we are unable to take control of the situation. That means that, if there are other problems in society, we will simply say that, because we are unable to take control, because we cannot find a solution, we will give up and open the door wide. It is irresponsible.
Unfortunately, I did not really understand the question, because it was too long, but I hope I answered it to my colleague’s satisfaction.
