Marijuana isn’t the only drug Jagmeet Singh wants decriminalized.
Speaking at the NDP conference in Victoria, the new NDP leader said he wanted all drugs to join the list.
“When you look at those folks being charged with personal possession of a controlled substance, the people who are being arrested and incarcerated. These are folks who are struggling with issues of mental health, of addiction and poverty,” Singh said. “To me, poverty, mental health and addiction don’t sound like a criminal justice problem. They sound to me like a social justice problem, that should be dealt like a social justice problem.”
