Legalization/Decriminalization Of Marijuana In Canada

Comment 0

Recently, a bill was presented to Parliament which proposes to not only legalize but also regulate marijuana use in Canada. Currently, only those with a valid medical purpose are allowed to legally possess marijuana. The intent of this bill is for marijuana to no longer be criminalized when used recreationally by July 1, 2018.
