Canadian Government To Introduce Legislation To Legalize Recreational Marijuana

July 1, 2018 is expected to be a historic day in Canada.

That’s the day Canadian citizens are expected to be able to smoke marijuana legally.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s liberal government will introduce legislation to legalize recreational marijuana the week of April 10.

It’s expected to be law by July next year.

Trudeau has long promised to legalize recreational marijuana use and sales.

Canada would be the largest developed country to end a nationwide prohibition of recreational marijuana.

Recreational use is allowed in California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada, along with Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska.

Medicinal use is legal in Michigan.
