The BC Conservative Party is giving the province some advice when it comes to the legalization of pot.
Interim leader Scott Anderson has issued a news release, making a number of suggestions.
He says municipalities should be able to decide when, where, and if pot can be sold within their jurisdictions, as he says they’ll be the ones who directly face the problems.
The Conservatives, which have no representation in the BC Legislature, also recommend BC’s age limit for legal purchase and consumption of cannabis be 19, and for private entrepreneurs to be part of the selling system.
Anderson also wants education on the dangers of marijuana, including the impact of second hand smoke.
Anderson echoes a sentiment of the federal Tories in saying the federal government has moved too fast in its legalization plan.
He says it’s effectively downloading all the problems on the provinces and municipalities.
