Canadian Newspaper moves to supporting consideration of Legalization

There is mounting evidence the so-called War on Drugs can’t be won — and too many people are dying while it’s being fought. Even many police believe this.
Legalizing drugs, and putting their production and distribution in the hands of legitimate businesses that could be taxed would end the huge drain on the public purse for policing and free up cash to treat addicts.
Our current approach to the drug problem isn’t working. It’s time for Ottawa to seriously consider new ideas.
