Amnesty for Cannabis Charges After Legalization?
Are you one of the 500,000 Canadians with a Cannabis criminal charge?
With Cannabis being legal come October, this may remove future criminal charges for simple possession but leaves over five-hundred thousand Canadians with criminal records.
Aurora Cannabis has contributed $50,000 dollars to the Campaign for Cannabis Amnesty, an organization that focuses on righting the wrongs of Canada’s history in regards to Cannabis. This organization explains that with a study conducted in 2017, 62% of all Canadians surveyed support or somewhat support pardons for people with these non-violent possession charges.
Without pardons, these individuals will find themselves struggling to find work and limitations on traveling. Want to support the cause? Check out the Campaign for Cannabis Amnesty online at cannabisamnesty.ca.
