The Marijuana Party of Canada (French: Parti Marijuana) is a Canadian federal political party, whose agenda focuses purely on ending the prohibition of cannabis. Apart from this one issue, the party has no other official policies, meaning party candidates are able to express their personal views on all other political issues freely.
Candidates appear on election ballots under the short form "Radical Marijuana" and their status is similar to that of independent candidates. Although governed by the Canada Elections Act, the Marijuana Party of Canada is a "decentralized" party, without by-laws, charter or constitution that govern its operations. Its Electoral District Associations are autonomous units of the party as whole.
Leader: Blair Longley
Ideology: Radical ...
Marc Emery sat up in bed that morning inspired, although he could have easily felt defeated. It was the day after the federal election, and he had run with the Canadian Marijuana Party, which hadn't won a single seat (CC#29 Marijuana Party fights national campaign). "I woke up and said 'we should make this a provincial party.'"Emery's seemingly unreachable goal: a candidate in every single one of BC's 79 electoral districts, more than any other provincial political party had ever fielded in a first election. By that night, the general concept and structure of the British Columbia Marijuana ...

... over medical marijuana club
IQALUIT, Nunavut — He calls himself a healer, not a dealer.
And despite spending last weekend in jail on drug charges, Ed DeVries is not about to shut what is almost certainly the most northerly - and perhaps the most popular - medical marijuana club in Canada.
"I couldn't stop this if I wanted to," says DeVries, a 52-year-old grandfather of four now facing four drug-related charges in Iqaluit, Nunavut.
He may be right.
The Qikiqtani Compassion Club, he says, distributes marijuana to 543 members, almost all of them in Iqaluit.
That would mean ...

CN ON: Grow-Ops Remain a Problem The Simcoe Reformer, 24 Oct 2014 - Norfolk's Police Services Board has weighed in on a court challenge to Canadian laws governing legal marijuana production. Peter Hellyer of Simcoe, chair of the Norfolk PSB, will write a letter to Health Canada asking the agency to expedite court proceedings mounted earlier this year. That challenge has delayed the implementation of new laws that will take the growing of legal marijuana out of the hands of "mom and pop" operations and entrust it to industrial producers operating under stricter rules.
