Trudeau’s pot statement is absurd

Re: “Be wary of cannabis use before travel to U.S., Trudeau advises radio listener,” Sept. 12.

How can he say that legalizing pot will protect anybody? It will now be readily available to everyone of age, for people to smoke as they wish, with more impaired drivers on the road, with more intoxicated people walking the streets. How does that protect anybody?
