PC

Albert Glen Cooper

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Albert Cooper (Peace River):

Madam Speaker, whereas the government is now considering legislation to move marijuana control from the Narcotics Act to the Food and Drugs Act, and whereas recent research indicates marijuana does have a number of serious physical side effects, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Cariboo-Chilcotin (Mr. Greenaway):
That the Minister of State and Minister of Communications in upcoming meetings with the Council of Education Ministers encourage them to co-operate with the federal government in an educational program designed to show Canada's youth both the hazards of marijuana use and the purposes of the proposed legislation.
