The Decriminalization Debate
While most laws are in place to maintain social order, some are put on place based on the social beliefs and interests of those in power and not that of the general public. Using this approach to create criminal law is dangerous and creates a host of related social issues that are sometimes worse than then the problem the law is supposed to be solving. One issue that has been debated since its inception is the criminalization of cannabis. While historically both Canada and America followed a similar plan in regards to the criminalization, they have broken apart, Canada considering decriminalization and America pushing harder for jail terms to those found guilty of possession. Both options have their own set of problems, consequences, and solutions.
Although these two countries have different approaches towards these laws, both countries could better address the needs of the public and offenders through abolitionism of the current penal systems in both countries.
