Canada to Legalize Marijuana in 2018

Sunday, it was reported that in April Canada’s government will announce that Marijuana will be legalized across the country by July of Y 2018.

The move comes on the recommendation of a high level government task force who’s leaders briefed Canadian lawmakers at the weekend on how to handle rolling out the legalization process. The  plan legalize the drug will be announced in mid-April of this year

However, the legalization of Marijuana comes with some regulations.

The government has set the minimum age for Marijuana use at 18, and will oversee its safety, the Provinces will have control over how the drug is sold, and those people who want to grow their own Marijuana will be limited to growing 4 plants at a time.

Legalizing Marijuana has been a priority of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose Liberal Party promised to “legalize, regulate and restrict access to Marijuana” in order to keep drugs “out of the hands of children, and the profits out of the hands of criminals.”

PM Trudeau’s plan to legalize Marijuana has seen criticism from his own government by both those who oppose legalization and those who don’t think it is feasible.

“I do not believe Justin Trudeau is going to bring in the legalization of Marijuana,” BC MP Peter Julian said in a TV interview Sunday. “We are still seeing, particularly young, Canadians being criminalized by simple possession of Marijuana.”

PM Trudeau says that until legalization, the “current Canadian laws against the drug apply”.
