Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says the Conservative government’s decision to launch a free market for medical marijuana is a move in the wrong direction.

Trudeau spoke Wednesday to hundreds of students at the University of Manitoba about a variety of issues, including economic growth and poverty.

When pressed for his views on the subject, Trudeau said he’s not in favour of replacing small, home-grown operations with larger commercial farms.

Trudeau’s comments came in response to a question from medical marijuana activist Steven Stairs, who held up a sign reading, “Let our people grow.”

Stairs, who uses the pot for his glaucoma, has accused the federal government of forcing sick people to jump through more hoops than necessary.

Trudeau, who also favours legalizing recreational marijuana, said the government’s move does not respect people’s freedom or contribute to the kind of care they need.
