Canada expected to legalise cannabis next year

The Canadian government is expected to introduce legislation the week of April 10, CBC reported, putting it on the path to become the second country behind Uruguay to fully legalize recreational marijuana for adult use.

"Our government recognizes there are numerous challenges to address while provinces adjust to marijuana legalization in Canada", the statement said.

This announcement by the Liberal government could not come soon enough, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faces mounting criticism for dragging his feet on the issue.

If a marijuana bill materializes next month, the Liberal government will have met its deadline to begin legalizing weed by the spring of 2017. The provincial governments will decide how the marijuana is distributed, sold and will set the price, according to CBC.

The CBC said the legislation would be unveiled the week of April 10 and passed by July 2018. Canadians would also be allowed to grow pot at home, but be limited to four plants per household.

Ottawa will oversee the country's marijuana supply as well as license producers.

"Until we have a framework to control and regulate marijuana, the current law applies".

And if the report is accurate, that means cannabis will be legal by Canada Day next year - that's July 1.

The province said people will be prohibited from consuming pot behind the wheel, and police will have the right to suspend a driver's licence for 24 hours if a person is believed to be under the influence. We haven't legalized it yet. However his party argued that it was important to see the legalisation of marijuana to "regulate and restrict access". Trudeau has said that the money raised should go toward drug education, addiction programs, and mental health support.

Earlier this month, police arrested Marc and Jodie Emery - the owners of the Cannabis Culture brand - and raided a number of Cannabis Culture dispensaries across Canada.
