"I'm hoping what they're going to say is that, 'These are the things that we are going to be looking for, these are things that are unacceptable, and do not even attempt to try that".

The announcement comes on the day that Canada has legalized so-called recreational marijuana. He has voiced concern over the lack of concrete decisions made between the Canadian and American governments on the issue of marijuana legalization. "And my new dealer is the prime minister!"

Researchers in the USA also aren't easily able to study cannabis for medical purposes because the plant is federally illegal. "That needs to stop and that's exactly what we have done". "It's going to take awhile to iron out all the wrinkles".
