I wish I could share your optimism. By delaying the implementation until 1 January, an estimated 1500-2000 more British Columbians will die from drug overdose during the 7 month delay. And those close to the problem state that the possession level of 2.5 grams is so low that it won't make any difference to heavy users....and they're the ones dying.
Sounds to me like a government with good intentions, falling far short of what the experts are telling us is needed. If those experts are right, a three year trial period just kicks the can down the road for another three years.
