Alberta Police Chiefs Issue Public Letter Over Pot Legalization

The Alberta Association of Chiefs of Police has some serious concerns about what it says is the "Federal Government's aggressive timeline for legalizing cannabis."

Police Chiefs from across the province have issued a public letter detailing what they see as problematic issues with the federal government's aggressive timeline on legalizing cannabis. The Alberta Association of Chiefs of Police says there are four main areas of concern and it would like to see the Trudeau Liberals push back the deadline of July 1st next year. Medicine Hat Police Chief Andy McGrogan, who is also the Association President, says Alberta is not the only province scrambling to come up with a workable framework. McGrogan says one of the biggest concerns police have across Alberta is the fact there's still no court proven system that will allow police to test for drug-impaired driving. -Warren Affleck
