In the News: Prof. Antweiler argues Canada should take U.S. lead on marijuana


In an op-ed written for the National Post on Canada’s current marijuana policy, Professor Werner Antweiler, of Sauder’s Strategy and Business Economics Division, looks across the border.

Antweiler argues, with co-author Professor Evan Wood of the Faculty of Medicine, that the U.S. is leading the way on progressive drug policy with the move to legalize, control and tax marijuana use in Colorado and Washington. He also notes that, on the other hand, Canada has fallen behind the U.S. in terms of enforcing marijuana prohibition.
