The CBC, a national television station in Canada, is looking for polling questions. Please submit this question or a variation of it: "Should the government of Canada repeal marijuana prohibition and replace it with a legal, regulated and taxed system of production and distribution to adult consumers?" (Thanks go to Mark Haden and Kirk Tousaw for the heads up.)
Questions can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a great opportunity to get new polling data on marijuana legalization in Canada. As far as I know the last major poll was in May 2008 by Angus Reid and it showed 53% support for legalizing marijuana. Support for legalizing more serious drugs like cocaine and heroin was between 7 and 9%.
The results of the poll will be presented on Power & Politics with Evan Solomon.
By the way, I'll be in Ottawa on November 25 to testify before the Senate Committee on Legal & Constitutional Affairs. I'll be talking about Bill C-15 which creates mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenders. My part will be at 6pm EST and it will be webcast if you're interested.
