Good chance feds will loosen marijuana laws

OTTAWA — Justice Minister Peter MacKay says draft legislation that would loosen federal marijuana laws is under “serious consideration.”

MacKay says the Conservatives are looking at whether to allow police officers to issue a ticket to anyone caught with small amounts of pot, rather than laying criminal charges.

Canadian police chiefs have long called for laws that would ticket people for pot possession instead of laying charges.
