The case for prescription-only marijuana

The Toronto Star published on op-ed by Colin Dormuth, UBC professor of anesthesiology, pharmacology and therapeutics, on the topic of marijuana legalization.

Dormuth challenges many of the common arguments against legalization, including the ideas that pot is harmless and comparable to alcohol.

“To anyone who thinks we should legalize marijuana because it is happening in the United States, can I interest you in amending the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to allow us all to keep and bear arms?” he wrote.
