Canada Union Head Calls For Marijuana Sales Through LCBO

CANADA:  Marijuana should be sold in LCBO stores if Ottawa goes ahead with plans to legalize the drug, according to the head of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU).

OPSEU president Warren (Smokey) Thomas says the Ontario liquor stores are already well-equipped to handle marijuana sales responsibly and safely.

“There would not be any need to reinvent the wheel,” Thomas told CBC News.

“For one thing they have the social responsibility part covered — they do age checks, they do refusals if somebody’s intoxicated.”
