Marijuana revenue should go towards BC social services

Penny Gurstein, SCARP Director and Professor, was interviewed by Global 's CKNW about revenue from legalized marijuana.

Penny said a portion of the revenue should go toward housing and services to address mental health and addictions: 

“Different kinds of housing for people who are in different stages of recovery. You need detox centres but you need housing for people who are going to be in long term recovery programs.”

“There are not just marginalized people, addictions is affecting people from all segments of society, and there isn’t that many facilities for people that can be living independently but need some support.”
