     No laws ban possession of marijuana, court rules
     Landmark Ontario decision goes beyond the decriminalization 
     proposed by Ottawa


        Saturday, May 17, 2003 - Page A9, the Globe and Mail

TORONTO and OTTAWA -- Canada has no laws prohibiting marijuana
possession, an Ontario Superior Court judge said yesterday in a ruling that
will be binding on judges in the province and may soon be picked up across
the country.

"For today, and for the Victoria Day weekend, it's a very pleasant
state of affairs for recreational pot smokers," said criminal lawyer Paul
Burstein, who helped argue the case successfully.

It was the second time that a Windsor teenager who was caught smoking
pot while playing hooky in a park has been found not to have broken any
law because, the courts ruled, there are effectively no longer any
marijuana laws to break.

Mr. Justice Steven Rogin upheld yesterday a lower-court decision, based
on complex arguments, that has already had far-reaching influence.

The new ruling means that proposed federal legislation to decriminalize
possession of a small amount of marijuana would actually
"recriminalize" it, defence lawyers said yesterday.

While the new law would impose fines for pot possession, yesterday's
ruling effectively eliminated any sanctions for simple pot possession in
Ontario, they said.

The decision "has effectively erased the criminal prohibition on
marijuana possession from the law books in Ontario," said Brian McAllister,
the lawyer for the accused teenager.

Courts in Nova Scotia and PEI have already put prosecutions on hold
pending yesterday's ruling, he said, and lawyers in other provinces were
similarly watching for this decision.

The initial ruling in favour of the Windsor teenager, identified only
as J. P., had a significant spillover effect and the higher-court
decision is expected to be even more influential.

The federal Department of Justice, which appealed the initial ruling,
is planning another appeal.

The government still plans to introduce its marijuana-decriminalization
legislation later this month.

Most Canadians are behind the idea, according to an Ipsos-Reid poll
released yesterday.

It found that 55 per cent of Canadians did not believe smoking
marijuana should be a criminal offence, while 42 per cent thought it should be.
More telling, 63 per cent of respondents supported Ottawa's plans to
issue tickets and fines similar to traffic violations to those caught
with 15 grams or less of marijuana, the poll found.

Justice Minister Martin Cauchon has said he is seeking the changes so
that people who are caught with small amounts will not clog up the court
system, potentially receiving criminal records.

For the moment, however, marijuana possession remains the most
frequently laid drug charge in Canada even though courts are becoming
increasingly resistant to hearing those cases.

Jim Leising of the federal Justice Department said in an interview that
he was "disappointed" by yesterday's decision and will push to have the
case heard quickly in the Ontario Court of Appeal.

"We are are still of the opinion that the law against marijuana is
valid," he said.
Mr. Leising said prosecutions will continue, although some may be put
on hold.

But defence lawyers involved in J.P.'s case said Ontarians facing
possession charges should fight Crown prosecutors' attempts to delay their
cases until the law is clarified.
Ontarians who are charged with marijuana possession after yesterday's
ruling could consider suing police for wrongful arrest, they said.

"Anybody who's got a charge before the court should definitely take
advantage of this," Mr. Burstein said. Multiple court battles to strike
down the marijuana laws are taking place, he said, leaving Ottawa
besieged from many directions. "The courts keep firing big shots into the
sides of the government's ship," Mr. Burstein said.

"They're sinking lower and lower. They are bailing it out with a cup."

The Ipsos-Reid poll -- of 1001 people, conducted between May 13 and May
15 -- found people still have some reservations about
decriminalization. The poll results are considered to reflect accurately the feelings of
the entire country to within 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20
