Cannabis becomes legal in Canada

Cannabis becomes legal in Canada

Government-run and privately-operated sales portals went live at 12:01 a.m. local time across Canada, eliciting a wave of demand that resulted in a virtual lineup at Alberta's e-commerce portal. Our website is experiencing some heavy traffic.

Chris James, who runs multiple illegal online dispensaries in Toronto told the Financial Post that his prices are "half what the government charges", and go as low as $3.50 per gram.

Though the province now only has one BC Cannabis Store open, and no privately operated stores have received final licensing approval, British Columbians don't need to travel to Kamloops to buy marijuana legally.

Canada has become the second country after Uruguay to legalise possession and use of recreational cannabis.

"I honestly didn't think I was going to be the first person in line, but I gotta say that I'm pretty excited that it turned out I am", Prete said.

"This is never actually going to be smoked". Well before the hour struck, lineups were queueing up outside pot stores in the country's biggest cities.

Among those waiting outside a Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation outlet selling cannabis in Sydney River, N.S., was fiddler and pop star Ashley MacIsaac.

Mr Trudeau's office have said the prime minister "does not plan on purchasing or consuming cannabis once it is legalised".

That's all made for some envy among American cannabis entrepreneurs, including Derek Peterson, the chief executive of California-based marijuana producer Terra Tech.

The wind and cold didn't deter a few hundred people from lining up around the block at the private store on Water Street, the main commercial drag in the Newfoundland and Labrador capital. He lined up at midnight in St. John's during the opening of the Tweed retail location. We just made history. The vote ended a 95-year-ban on the substance.

"Oct. 17 will. probably be the least elegant day", Canopy's CEO Linton said.

But he said Israeli policy dictated an "immediate and forceful retaliation" against Hamas because the groups controls Gaza. The targets include a tunnel, two digging sites, a weapons manufacturing site, a naval tunnel, and more.

No stores will open in Ontario, which includes Toronto.

Canadian companies have already lent funding and expertise to U.S. cannabis companies in the eight states like Colorado, California and ME where recreational use is allowed, and around 30 others which permit medical marijuana. Canadian law now allows people 18 and older to buy pot, though some provinces have upped the minimum age to 19 to match the drinking age.

Individuals have been eligible to apply for a pardon through the Parole Board of Canada five years after the conviction is handed down.

However, with many provincial governments only approving a small number of shops so far and a shortage of weed supplied to these stores, many Canadians will likely be smoking black-market pot on Wednesday. The most populous province is working on its regulations and does not expect any stores to open until next spring.

"Parliament has now passed Bill C-45.Today I'm also pleased to announce that the new recreational cannabis regime will officially come into force on October 17 of this year", the Independent quoted Trudeau as saying at the time.

Whether the selection of cannabis products, and pricing, will be enough to entice existing cannabis users away from the illicit market remains to be seen.

The Montreal store has a long counter with products behind it.

Therefore, there are no actual guiding numbers regarding how much cannabis can be consumed before it is unsafe to drive.

But because the country uses USA dollars, its legal marijuana sellers can not tap into US -regulated financial systems such as US banks or the major credit card networks, which are forbidden from handling drug money.

"We need to remember that this is the start of something, not the end of something".
