Mayor Howie Cyr supports Ederby council's call for marijuana to be regulated and taxed.

The City of Enderby believes a different approach towards marijuana is required.

Council voted Monday to ask senior government to regulate cannabis as a way of reducing crime, rationalizing police resources and creating a new source of revenue for communities.

“We’re not saying we agree with marijuana but the current process is not working and it fuels the gangs,” said Mayor Howie Cyr.

“Instead of throwing countless people into jail (for marijuana possession) and spending money on enforcement, treat it like cigarettes or prescription drugs.”
