Marijuana still criminalized
I note that President Biden has just announced an amnesty of sorts for all those convicted of simple possession of marijuana anywhere in the USA, where the herb has not been legalized as it is in Canada. We have congratulated ourselves for legalizing medicinal and recreational uses of the herb -- yet thousands of Canadians, I understand, still have possession listed as a criminal conviction on their records. Prime Minister Trudeau, staking his claim to be progressive, innovative (and youthful) with he legalization legislation, still refuses to wipe clean the records of so many "innocent" Canadians. And he gives no explanation -- as if he, himself, needs no explanations for his decisions! That is a sham, an dit puts Trudeau's progressivism into question. Obviously he's bowing to the will of conservatives, among police and religious people. Not acceptable! This old-school way of doing politics, one step forward, one step backwards, is finished.
