Canada Officially Legalizes Marijuana

You will be able to legally buy marijuana later this summer.

After a promise by the federal government during the 2015 federal election, Canada’s Senate officially passed the ‘Cannabis Act’ on Tuesday, meaning the recreational drug will be legal in the coming weeks.

The RMWB has yet to finalize their regulations.

Wood Buffalo Council is set to adopt the federal and provincial rules.

This includes the minimum age being set at 18, consumption allowed in the same places as tobacco, stores needing to be 100 metres from schools and health centres, and being allowed to grow four plants at home.

Council will hold a special meeting on July 9 where residents can speak before a final vote.
