Canada becomes only the second country on Earth to legalise cannabis.Canada has finally achieved its long-held ambition to legalise recreational cannabis. As of today, Canadian adults can purchase and consume the drug from licensed producers across the entire country.
The country’s historic Bill C-45 was approved by Canada’s Parliament and Senate earlier this year but was quickly followed by a game of political see-saw as various provinces wanted their say on how cannabis should be regulated.
With all the nit-picking and legal wrangling finally settled, sales of marijuana for recreational use will commence across Canada as of today.
