VICTORIA -- Crusaders pushing to legalize marijuana got a new ally today.

BC's Chief Medical Health Officer and two of his colleagues in other provinces added their voices to a growing list of people calling for marijuana to be decriminalized.

In a report, Dr. Perry Kendall says it is time for the Federal Government to start asking questions, such as how we could better restrict access to pot, is there a way of regulating and taxing it so the benefits come back to the Government, and society instead of into the hands of criminals.

Pot activists say it is a step in the right direction, and they are hopeful one day it will be legal.
