Canada Legalizes Recreational Cannabis

  • Canada has legalized the use and possession of recreational cannabis, becoming the second country in the world to do so after Uruguay. The cannabis nationwide market opened at midnight on Wednesday amid circulating questions regarding public safety, law and the impact on health. About 15m households are mailed regarding the details of public awareness campaigns and the new cannabis laws.

    Municipalities and provinces in Canada have been preparing for months to end the prohibition of cannabis. Analysts predict the recreational marijuana will be in shortage for the first year, however, the production will keep on ramping up.
