Marijuana  Mr. Speaker, as we have stated many times, our government is committed to legalizing, strictly regulating, and restricting access to cannabis. The process in place right now simply is not working. That is why we engaged a task force that provided substantive recommendations: he

Marijuana  Mr. Speaker, again, we are committed to legalizing, strictly regulating, and restricting access to cannabis in order to keep it out of the hands of children and the profits out of the hands of criminals. Simply decriminalizing at this time will not achieve those objectives. Tha
