Watch: Trudeau Doubles Down On Marijuana Legalization

Even though Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has selected MP Bill Blair to lead the legalization process for the Canadian government, Trudeau continues to clearly and passionately state the case for ending the federal prohibition on marijuana.

At a press conference Jan. 13 in Toronto, Trudeau outlined the two main reasons he thinks cannabis should be legalized:

  • Protecting youth: "The current system [of prohibition] does not protect our kids from easy access to marijuana."
  • Kill gang, criminal activity: "Criminal organizations and street gangs are making millions upon millions of dollars in profits from the sale of marijuana."
Trudeau articulates his position in this short clip from the press conference:
