Ganja now legal as Canada allows recreational use

Ganja now legal as Canada allows recreational use”

Uruguay was the first country to legalise recreational marijuana, although Portugal and the Netherlands have decriminalised the drug. "And the fact they have a model in Canada - a country they have good relations with, that they're quite similar to culturally - can only help the reform cause".

For now, cannabis can only be purchased through the government-run online portal, and Fedeli noted that any orders placed through the site would not yet have been delivered.

Being budget friendly, we wanted to see what our cheapest options for legal cannabis are.

Its implementation would be scrutinized and dissected by Canadians ahead of an election next year, as well as other nations that the prime minister has said could follow suit if the measure proves a success.

Canada is the first G7 country (economically dominant countries that include France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States) to fully legalize recreational marijuana.

Mr Clarke had been dealing marijuana illegally in Canada for three decades. Mexico, the Netherlands and Italy are among other nations that have been mulling legalization.

"Mexico is really the significant comer in this debate", said John Walsh of the advocacy group Washington Office on Latin America.

"We hope that the most immediate impact of Canadian legalization is that it galvanizes supporters of ending prohibition in the USA and convinces members of the industry here to increase their efforts in support of reform", Morgan Fox, media relations director for the National Cannabis Industry Association, told 420 Intel in an email.

Cannabis has the potential to disrupt $500 billion in global markets, Linton said. (They call themselves dispensaries to further the narrative that, like your grandmother's rye, marijuana is for medicinal purposes.) Only now, with pot use becoming legal, are these dispensaries being shut down - although Toronto's chief of police says not right away, as he doesn't have to person power to do it all at once. Italy could be a "dark horse in the race to be the first country to legalize in Europe", Rolles said.

Many customers celebrating Wednesday certainly thought so. I'm not even going to smoke it.

"I am going to frame it and hang it on my wall".

Several medical marijuana producers are already on Canadian stock markets. The products are displayed in plastic or cardboard packages behind counters. Buyers can't touch or smell before they buy.

"Now that the laws on cannabis have changed, individuals who previously acquired criminal records for simple possession of cannabis should be allowed to shed the stigma and the burden of that record". City staff would then conduct an internal review and make a recommendation to council either to support or not support the application.

The number of stores that will open Wednesday remains unclear, but there could be as many as 100 brick-and-mortar government-run or privately operated locations, depending on whether they pass final inspections or get product shipments in time. Kamloops City Council voted on the store opening during a meeting yesterday, with a unanimous vote and mayor Ken Christian declaring history had been made.

Graham said it means he won't have to buy pot from his friends anymore, while Risk said she sees legalization as a progressive step.

The Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported on the lineup in Newfoundland, and noted that Canada's goal was "to better reflect society's changing opinion about marijuana and bring black-market operators into a regulated system".
