B.C.’s New Democratic and Green parties say they would not oppose a research trial to evaluate the regulation of adult marijuana use, which would be a step towards taking pot use out of the criminal realm, according to Stop the Violence BC. The B.C. Liberals said a research trial would have to be initiated by the federal government and only then would they give the proposal “serious consideration.”
