The bishop of Nelson, one of the bishops involved, said "we could say the same thing about alcohol in that it’s addictive, it can impair your judgement, you can hurt yourself by drinking too much — or other people.”

In October 2018 Canada legalized recreational marijuana use. This is a response to the situation this creates.

A few on CAF would disagree.
