Pot Politics

April 18, 2017

So episode 55 – a new record.  But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show on iTunes and have already rated and reviewed the podcast- right? You should.

Emilie Taman returns!

This week we talk about the Liberal government’s new marijuana legislation. But it is not just pot that gets a legislative makeover.  The government has adopted the contents of an old Conservative bill that will radically change alcohol impaired driving.

We also dive into some Jordan fall out – what is the government doing about court delays? Is it really a problem – turns out maybe not.  Is the Supreme Court’s Jordan decision being used as a criminal justice Trojan horse?

All that and so so much more….


Bill C-45: Cannabis Act

Bill C-46: Impaired driving legislation

Michael’s submissions on Conservative bill C-226 – much of which applied to C-46.

Michael’s op-ed in Canadian Lawyer: Broken pot promise would send Liberals’ credibility up in smoke

Toronto Star: Fears of widespread trial dismissals not borne out, says law professor

We also have some new art – it is still new because it is way easier to just copy and past this section each week – from an awesome young designer Parker Mazerolle – serious he is crazy good – go check out his work.
