Approximately 120 people discuss marijuana legalization at town hall meeting


Larry Maguire, Member of Parliament for Brandon-Souris hosted a marijuana town hall on Bill’s C-45 & C-46 at the West End Community Centre in Brandon today. Approximately 120 community members attended the meeting where information regarding the legislation was presented by Drew Ostash. Open forum discussion of aspects and particulars of the legislation shared views from the public that there was a need for further education, concerns of the complexities to enforce the legislation, and the practicality of some of the limitations that are currently set within the Bills. There was a general feeling of support and progressiveness in the room of marijuana use both medicinally and recreationally. This was the first town hall of five that are planned in the upcoming days across the riding.
