All We Want Is To Have The Question On The Ballot !! "Should we legalize and/or decriminalize marijuana?"

As Canadian Citizens, we deserve the right to vote on all important issues.  In recent years, we have seen 40-45% of all eligible voters staying away from the polls.  True Democracy deserves full participation and a higher percentage of voters in the Civic, Provincial and Federal Elections.  This question needs to be on the election ballot, "Should we legalize and/or decriminalize marijuana?  FOR,  AGAINST, or  ABSTAIN."   Voter turnout at the polls is going to be 70% or more because those that are FOR it will come out to the polls and those AGAINST it will come out to the polls, and those who don't wish to see it on the ballot will equally have their say.  Isn't this what Democracy is about?

      because its healthy in medicinal circumstances and far less harmful than big pharma meds...We as adults should be allowed to make our own decisions as to wether to use a natural treatmant rather than being forced to take more and more big pharma because of so many side effects..As far as i know in 43 years of smoking marijuana the only side effect is it makes you happy..Is being happy a terrible side effect now?

      I believe there are many health benefits associated to marijuana and it should be decriminalized.

      It's ridiculous to have marijuana in the criminal code when it does far less harm than alcohol, financially and physically! Furthermore it is ridiculous to spend huge amounts of money to enforce against victimless "crimes". POT DOES NOT EQUAL HEROIN OR COCAINE.... and is not supplied mainly by the CIA!
