Petition to the Minister of Justice

Whereas:
  • The personal production of beer, wine and other fermented alcohol is a legal activity for adults in Canada;
  • The personal indoor and outdoor cultivation of a variety of plants is legal in Canada; and
  • Adults who choose to consume cannabis should be granted similar production rights as those who choose alcohol.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to allow for the personal production of cannabis as part of upcoming cannabis legalization legislation.
