Explaining the government’s rationale for moving to legalize, Blair said the goal is to strictly regulate the drug and restrict its access to minors. It will also take billions of dollars in black market sales from organized crime groups, he said.

Blair called the number of Canadians charged with possession “shocking,” noting that in 2014 there were 22,000 charges laid. Current laws disproportionately affect minority and aboriginal communities, he added.

NDP Leader Tom Mulcair urged the government to immediately decriminalize pot so no Canadians are slapped with charges before new laws are enacted.
