There are many issues to be had with BC’s Cannabis Control and Licensing Act (Bill 30), which was introduced to the legislature in late April. In response, Dana Larsen from Sensible BC has launched a campaign to try to get the provincial government to change some of the most problematic aspects of the Cannabis Control and Licensing Act.
Sensible BC’s campaign urges supporters to use their voices and send a message to Premier John Horgan, Minister of Public Safety Mike Farnworth, and Green leader Andrew Weaver. The pre-written message outlines some of the biggest problems with the Cannabis Control and Licensing Act and asks the politicians to fix it. If you would like to edit the message, you’re completely free to, although, in typical Canadian fashion, they do ask that you be polite in your message.
The message is available here.
The four main points that the campaign is asking the politicians to change in the Cannabis Control and Licensing Act are:
- Do not criminalize having legal plants in public view
- Do not prohibit cannabis lounges
- Eliminate the special cannabis enforcement police
- Do not duplicate all the federal laws with provincial criminalization
