Letters: Enforcing foolish laws

RCMP pay raise draws comments on outdated marijuana laws

Last week’s front page story,  ”RCMP pay raise will affect budget.”

If the RCMP would stop enforcing foolish marijuana laws it should free up money for the budget. Four decades ago a federally- appointed Royal Commission recommended that marijuana should be de-criminalized.

How much money has been wasted by this issue?

Why does our government not deal with this issue as they deal with so many others:ignore it and pretend it has gone away?
