Adults will be able to carry and share up to 30 grams of marijuana in public. Adults in the country will also be allowed to cultivate up to four plants in their households and prepare products such as edibles for personal use. That sound good to you? Well that’s about to be what’s happening in Canada come October.
CNN (@cnn) reports, recreational marijuana use will soon be legal in Canada after its Senate passed the bill on Tuesday with a 52-29 vote.
Canada is only the 2nd country in the world to legalize weed nationwide. Only 9 states in the U.S allow recreational marijuana use, and 30 states in the U.S allow medical use of weed. Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau said the bill will help keep marijuana out of the hands of underage users and reduce marijuana related crimes in the country.
The bill is scheduled to go into effect on October 17th. Think something like this will be coming to America anytime soon?
