Vancouver votes to decriminalise recreational drugs

Vancouver’s city council has appealed to Canada’s government for an exemption from federal drug laws so that it can decriminalise possession of drugs for recreational use. The motion is intended to reduce the rates of overdose in the province. If approval is granted, the city will become the first in Canada to decriminalise possession of all recreational drugs.
