Medical marijuana producers oppose federal task force’s calls for plain packaging and bans on advertising.
Garfield Mahood has spent 30 years fighting for the Canadian government to require plain packaging for cigarettes.
So, the long-time non-smokers’ rights activist says he doesn’t have much faith in the government’s ability to regulate and restrict the marketing of marijuana.

close to a conclusion.
“What would give you faith that health departments are going to effectively regulate any health problems related to these other drugs?”
