This week in the United Kingdom MPs were required to debate legalizing marijuana after a petition on Parliament’s website garnered over 220,000 signatures making it the third most popular petition in the UK. In Australia a group of federal politicians is pushing for national uniform legislation to allow access to medicinal marijuana. The US Republican primary debate marijuana legalization played a significant role in the discussion, and Anderson Cooper even opened up the question during the Democratic presidential debate by saying they would discuss a topic that pretty much everyone in the room probably enjoyed.
Okay Canada, Monday is your chance to be heard. With the advance polls closed we are already seeing higher voter turnout. Marijuana is on the ballot.
