Watch “Small-scale possession of illicit drugs will be decriminalized in B.C. starting next year” on YouTube

British Columbia is the province in which I live and the largest city here is Vancouver which has a real problem with opioid overdoses. Decriminalization is a good step in the right direction. After yesterday’s announcement from Justin Trudeau regarding the handgun ban, this news feels right. If you can’t carry a gun at least you can get really high. I’d rather someone be able to the edge off than be all edgy behind a gun.
