Psychiatrists ask Liberals to keep cannabis illegal up to age 21
Citing evidence of the risks to developing brains, the Canadian Psychiatric Association is urging the government to outlaw sales of cannabis to people under the age of 21, and to restrict the quantity and potency of cannabis products that can be purchased by people aged 21 to 25.
The CPA’s position puts them at odds with the Liberals’ task force, which recommended in December that marijuana and other cannabis products be legalized for those 18 or older.
The Liberals’ legislation to legalize recreational pot use is expected to be tabled Thursday.
