Mayor Kennedy Stewart is introducing a motion, that if passed, would decriminalize the simple possession of illicit drugs in Vancouver.
The motion will be discussed with Vancouver City Council during next week’s meeting, although he notes that decriminalization “Is not a silver bullet.”
If passed, the City of Vancouver will reach out to the federal government to “Decriminalize personal possession of illicit substances within the City’s boundaries for medical purposes.”
