Pot records should stay

The Province - - EDITORIAL -

Why are peo­ple ex­pect­ing to have mar­i­juana-con­vic­tion charges re­moved from their records and/or ex­pect­ing com­pen­sa­tion for any pri­son time they may have served? They know­ingly broke the law at the time.

I don’t think any of them would be ad­mit­ting to their habit if the govern­ment were an­nounc­ing that they were go­ing to crim­i­nal­ize it. Com­pen­sat­ing peo­ple for break­ing the law would be a waste of tax­pay­ers’ money.
