A local marijuana advocate is compiling criticism against Ottawa’s task force report on legalization in order to make sure Manitoba’s cannabis community “has a voice.”
Steven Stairs, a medical marijuana user and grower who helps organize Winnipeg’s 420 rallies, said he reached out to Kildonan MLA Nicholas Curry to talk about the highs and lows of the report.
Without making our voices heard early in the process, we won’t have a leg to stand on,” he said.
Stairs shared the opportunity to weigh in with others in the cannabis community, and has since been inundated with people contributing their thoughts, which he’ll work into his submission.
“Everybody is pretty on point with what we want, there’s fairly good consensus,” he said.
Stairs notes the community supports store front sales, and separating the sale of pot from liquor.
