Now that we have a French club, we should probably keep the very specific French discussion (as in, stuff not really related to Canada) over there. n_n;

It wouldn't be legal right away, but instead there would be research done on how much money could be made both through the taxation and actual growing of marijuana itself, and if it could turn the province a good profit, steps would be taken to legalize it.
Like I said, I wouldn't ever use the stuff myself, but if it could help boost the provincial economy, I say why not legalize and regulate it, since it's less harmful than either alcohol or cigarettes. If it could also cut down the number of drug related crime and arrests, that'd free up the police for more important things, too (things like marijuana DUIs would still be tracked, though).
I'm on board if only for taxation reasons, but I'd kind of prefer if marijuana stays illegal. I absolutely cannot stand the smell so the less people able to or seeking to smoke it, the better, imo. :P
