CANADA LEGALIZES Marijuana; Effective October 17, 2018

Marijuana To Become Legal In Canada On October 17

|CRIMSON TAZVINZWA, AIWA! NO!|Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced that starting October 17, 2018, Canadians will be able to legally use recreational marijuana.

Recreational marijuana will officially become legal in Canada on Oct. 17, 2018, the prime minister announced on Wednesday afternoon.

Justin Trudeau confirmed the long-awaited start date during Question Period in Ottawa, ending months of speculation surrounding when, precisely, Canadians will be able to purchase and consume the drug legally.

The Liberals had initially aimed for July 1, Canada Day, but procedural issues and delays prevented them from reaching that target.

Canada will be the biggest country in the world to legalise marijuana on October 17. Dispensaries currently selling (technically illegally) marijuana products will have to shut down and apply for a license in order to continue trading.
