On Monday, the Liberal Party in Canada won the national elections by wide margins, promising an impending shift in a number of policy areas, including marijuana. Newly elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised that the Canadian government would quickly begin the process of making marijuana legal for adults.

USA Today reports:

Trudeau promised that under his leadership Canada would create a system to tax, regulate and sell marijuana, along with stiff penalties for anyone giving pot to children or caught driving while stoned. The Liberal Party’s cannabis legalization statement echoes the language used by many U.S. legalization advocates.

“Canada’s current system of marijuana prohibition does not work. It does not prevent young people from using marijuana and too many Canadians end up with criminal records for possessing small amounts of the drug,” the party’s position statement says. “To ensure that we keep marijuana out of the hands of children, and the profits out of the hands of criminals, we will legalize, regulate, and restrict access to marijuana.”

This development could have a serious impact on marijuana policy in the United States.

On top of that, Mexico’s Supreme Court will hold a hearing on October 28 to determine whether federal policies banning the possession and cultivation of marijuana are unconstitutional. Soon, the United States may be the only large nation on the North American continent to carry on the failed policies of marijuana prohibition.

  1. In times past, I spoke to those My FATHER choses to Teach (the Elect) that the marijuana tax act of 1937 is a world-wide first; a blasphemy in which the entire world united to condemn the work of My FATHER’S Hands, HIS Creation. It is plainly the work of satan and his demons. I pray that as a nation you repent of and repeal this blasphemous law, for your own sake. For those who understand this, let go of those who hold onto this blasphemy. The LORD Jesus teaches us, “Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven” (Matthew 12:31). This blasphemous law is that sin for which there will be no forgiveness, a law that condemns THE LIVING GOD for the Work of HIS Hands, HIS Creation. To those who instigated this world-wide rebellion against My FATHER’S Creation and to those who cling to it to this day, I bequeath HIS Words spoken concerning you, “And they shall go forth and look on the dead bodies of the men that have rebelled against me; for their worm shall not die, their fire shall not be quenched, and they shall be an abhorrence to all flesh” (Isaiah 66:24). This End is closer now than you can imagine. And to all of HIS Elect, who have not enjoined themselves to this rebellion against HIM; you are those who HE Calls [they] in these, HIS Words, concerning this rebellious generation. “He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen” (Revelation 22:20-21). The voice of one crying in the wilderness (of America)
