The opportunity to play sports is something no youth should have stripped from them. Yet data shows that minor possession charges have disproportionately affected minority youth, specifically African-Canadians and Indigenous youth, limiting opportunities for jobs, participation in sports, travel, and much more. Although this is not a statement supporting youth drug use, it is one meant to raise awareness of government legislation in regards to cannabis law: Criminal records for minor drug possession prohibits participation in sports  for the youth who likely need it most. Cannabis amnesty will change the lives of our children, opening the door for inner city youth to participate in their sport of choice. I support a second chance for our youth. I support the Campaign for Cannabis Amnesty.
