Justin Trudeau backs controversial medical marijuana shop in Winnipeg

 

Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is speaking out in support of a controversial medical marijuana store in Winnipeg.

During a stop in the city on Wednesday, Trudeau said marijuana storefronts like "Your Medical Cannabis Headquarters," owned by Glenn Price, should be allowed to operate.

At a Liberal campaign office just blocks away from the shop, Trudeau reiterated his pledge to legalize marijuana if elected.

He said by licensing and restricting the sale, it keeps the drugs out of the hands of kids and criminals.

Police closed down Price's store last week, saying he is not a licensed producer so it's illegal for him to sell medical marijuana.

In Canada, Parents Vow To Give Their Sick Children Medical Marijuana — Even If Doctors Won't

For years, Sarah Wilkinson woke up every day wondering if it would be her daughter's last.

When she was a baby, Mia was diagnosed with a form of epilepsy that caused her to suffer waves of intense seizures — sometimes up to 100 episodes in one day.

To make matters worse, the dozens of pills Mia's doctor had prescribed for her condition weren't working and she was miserable all the time.

"She sometimes had seizures that would last up to 23 hours and she would have to be put into a medically-induced coma," recalls Wilkinson, who lives with her family outside of Calgary, Alberta. "And whenever she would have a big seizure, my two sons would start panicking because she would be turning blue."
