The P.E.I. government wants to hear your thoughts on marijuana legislation.
Government is asking Islanders to share their thoughts on how to approach cannabis legalization in a way that “keeps drugs away from our young people, protects public health and promotes safety on our roads, in workplaces and in public spaces,” according to a government news release.
From now until the end of September, Islanders are invited to share their views by participating in an online survey or providing a written submission online.
“The federal government in April 2017 introduced the Cannabis Act which — if passed by Parliament — will legalize and regulate cannabis across Canada by July 2018,” said the release. “While legalizing cannabis is a federal decision, the province has significant areas of responsibility.”
