B.C. municipal leaders voted Wednesday for a resolution that calls for the decriminalization of marijuana.
Some experts say a prohibition on pot is a failed policy that has cost millions of dollars in police, court, jail and social costs.
But a leading criminologist and two police officers — from Canada and the U.S. — argue lifting the prohibition will have little effect on reducing organized crime or the black market in marijuana.
It might reduce the number of police officers though.
