Wind­sor shouldn’t al­low pot shops

Windsor Star - - OPINION -

Mar­i­juana or cannabis used to be an il­le­gal drug sub­stance, and it still is fed­er­ally in the United States of Amer­ica and most coun­tries in the world. The Trudeau Lib­eral gov­ern­ment made it le­gal, so now it be­comes a busi­ness in Canada. Although it is le­gal, that doesn’t make it safe for most Cana­di­ans, es­pe­cially our chil­dren, in terms of health, safety and their fu­ture.

I urge our city coun­cil­lors — es­pe­cially par­ents, guardians and grand­par­ents — to vote to opt out of re­tail mar­i­juana stores in our city, for a clean and safe en­vi­ron­ment. Why talk about mak­ing money by sell­ing mar­i­juana to the pub­lic, when most coun­tries in the world don’t? Why does Canada? We should pro­tect mi­nors and vul­ner­a­ble adults.

Henry Lau, Wind­sor
