Tessmer Law does not traditionally support political parties but rather supports particular policies that better humanity. We support the decriminalization of marihuana. It makes no sense that alcohol and tobacco are legal but you can get a criminal record for possession of marijuana (if you don’t have license for medical marihuana). More violent and dangerous crime is related to alcohol than anything else and the health costs associated with alcohol and tobacco are well known. Further, the law against pot is bad for democracy and the rule of law. Bad laws invite disrespect for the law and create an opportunity for organized and unorganized criminal groups to profit. So Tessmer Law supports Justin Trudeau in his efforts to decriminalize cannabis possession. Its time we voted on this issue!
This morning the Federal Crown prosecutor dropped marijuana production & possession for the purpose of trafficking charges against a client of Tessmer Law.
While the crown doesn’t have to specify the precise reason charges are dropped, we believe the decision was made because the police violated several constitutional rights in obtaining the evidence including subjecting the defendant to a strip search……
Note: A strip search is only justified if the the police if the police have reasonable grounds to believe a detainee has hidden evidence or a weapon under their clothes.
