Jamie Schmale isn’t happy about the government issuing a time allocation on the debate of the marijuana legalization bill.

The Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock M.P. feels there are more questions than answers about legalizing pot.

The time allocation motion limits debate on a bill in front of the House of Commons.

Schmale feels too much responsibility is being put on the shoulders of the provinces and municipalities.

If the bill is passed, marijuana would be legal by Canada Day next year.


Schmale feels the legal age should be over 18 years.

Schmale is also concerned that the proposed law would allow people to grow as many as four pot plants at home for personal use.


He also says there are too many questions, including impaired driving.

Parliament is in midnight sittings and the proposed bill could be passed by the end of June.
