Rejoice, Canadian lovers of marijuana. The day is upon us and weed is going to be legalized.
We want to be at Seth Rogen’s place.
The move will see Canada become the world’s largest nation to legalize weed and we’re sure there will be some interesting celebrations taking place. Canadians will be allowed to have as much pot at home as they like and they can grow up to four plants in each house.
The nationwide process will begin on day one with just a single store in British Columbia able to sell the drug. The exact price will become apparent with time, and more and more stores will join in on the fun.
There is, however, a lot of confusion and potential for trouble with the U.S. border. While Canada borders some states in the U.S. where weed is legal, the U.S. Customers and Border Patrol issued a statement which explained that despite that fact, the border is governed by federal law.
This means that Canadians crossing the border must be careful: federal U.S. law considers marijuana a Schedule I drug and it comes with a lot of issues.
Canadians must be careful when passing backwards and forwards across the border because they may simply forget that they’re in possession of the drug.
Canada’s decision is part of a wave of international acceptance for the drug: Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and a host of Latin American countries have legalized the drug and more countries are sure to follow suit in the coming years.
The world will be watching and this big day could spark up a lot of support for legal marijuana.
