Writer queries pot approval

Are Supreme Court Justices stepping over their judicial limitations?

To the editor:

Are Supreme Court Justices stepping over their judicial limitations?

Never before in the history of Canada has any Supreme Court Justice been able to declare any drug safe for medicinal purposes without the formal authorization to market or distribute a medicine without a Notice of Compliance issued by Health Canada.

The recent approval by the Supreme Court of Canada for the marijuana drug sales without the approval of Health Canada is a strange phenomenon indeed.

It strikes me more like a democratic dictatorship than anything else.

Is there anyone who holds these Justices accountable?

How?

One can only wonder, just who runs the country – the government or the Supreme Court Justices?
