Cannabis to be­come le­gal in Canada

Global Times - Weekend - - WORLD -

Canada will soon be­come the sec­ond coun­try in the world to le­gal­ize cannabis – with the prov­inces left to work out the de­tails of Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau’s land­mark mea­sure.

From Oc­to­ber 17, Cana­di­ans will be al­lowed to grow, pos­sess and con­sume mar­i­juana for recre­ational pur­poses – five years af­ter Uruguay passed pi­o­neer­ing leg­is­la­tion on the is­sue.

Deriva­tive prod­ucts such as ed­i­bles, cos­met­ics and e-cig­a­rette prod­ucts con­tain­ing pot will not be al­lowed un­til 2019.
