The distinction between decriminalization and legalisation of drug use is important.

CAMH also feels that mandatory minimum sentences are not the way to go-- their reasoning is in this policy paper: http://www.camh.net/Public_policy/NADS&#...

I also note that CAMH does not consider cannabis a benign drug, for all that it agrees with decriminalization: http://www.camh.net/Public_policy/Public...

I didn't see any policy papers form CAMH recommending legalizing drugs and taxing their sale. Their big push is harm reduction, which, along with things like safe injection sites, would include some kind of legal sanctions.
