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

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.

... 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.

CN BC: Column: New Medical Marijuana Law 'Stinks' Nelson Star, 09 Apr 2014 - The use of medical marijuana has come to council's attention and may have to be dealt with by our local law enforcement or by drafting new bylaws. At our last council committee of the whole meeting, Chief Wayne Holland gave a presentation on the new medical marijuana regulations which took effect on April 1. The new federal regulations could make current legal marijuana patients criminals. A quote in the local media states, "There are currently only 10 companies in Canada licensed to produce medical marijuana, and NPD chief Wayne Holland says his observation of the lead-up to the introduction of the new regulations indicates that when the law changes there won't be enough supply to meet the country-wide demand for medical marijuana."
