The dangers of marijuana use by young people and the latest research showing that brain development continues until the age of 25;
According to experts in drug dependence and criminology, marijuana causes “amotivational syndrome” resulting in a chronic decrease in energy levels, motivation and the ability to concentrate at work or school as adults;
The risks of aggravating the condition of people with mental illnesses and physiological effects such as cancer and other pulmonary disorders that could be caused by repeated cannabis use;
The health of Canadians as well as the security and harmony of our towns and cities are threatened;
The problems that marijuana use will cause for driving;
To be consistent with our anti-drug efforts in Canada; and
The values that all Canadians have fought for and that we wish to pass on to our young people are preserved.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to reject Bill C-45 introduced on April 13, 2017, respecting cannabis and to amend the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, the Criminal Code and other Acts (legalization of cannabis).
