Which one? The political?... Or is that the version displayed by a variety of propaganda channels via mass-media press?
Anyway here's some hint of explanation relatively to the Québec which lost big in this "bargain":

In practical terms, starting at least on August 24, 2016, the rest of Justin's "légaleezation" which came thereafter simply reflected "data" based on the rejection of Québekers, benefiting support for the "medical" yet taxable program... So it's no wonder if the average voter shall feel misrepresented: it's because we are and that's not the only time.
Lucie "Nez Rouge" Charlebois, a federalist who (by the way) ain't actually our health minister but a shield for Gaétan Barette instead (because he's a doctor with special "connection$"...), m'well she performed the hard work by importing propagandist material via the UN's 2014 COP6/FCTC event, which occured in Moscow/Russia away from any criticism.
The cortege of those determined to VILIFY cannabis even further proves endless and no responsible adult seems ready to rise and protest so far. The only "pro" cannabic voice i heard, at some point, happened to come from Marc-Boris St-Maurice who gave us a mediocre impression with his performance at TLMEP:
There's just zero pro-cannabic visibility that i can trust, hence there's no way i'd have any desire to support it with a legal signature, after showing my cards to feed a databank meant to leak later, eventually, etc.
It's designed to fail and some of the signals are obvious. Like replacing "organized crime" with a "legal" one that's even more predatory, since we have no rights left after being infantilized anyway...
So, what's going on is that bigot anti-cannabic prohibitionists are having a hell of a good time and they don't know when to stop. Expect an increase of permanent prejudice.
Good day, have fun!!
