Canadian Prime Introduced Bill That Would Legalize Marijuna by 2018


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday unveiled the bill  that would legalize marijuana in the country by July 1, 2018. The  legislation, which heads to Royal Assent next, aims to create guidelines  that regulate the cultivation, distribution, sale, and possession of  marijuana for adults (ages 18 and older) to use and possess legally.  

Households would also be authorized to grow up to four plants at a time.  In the U.S., TIME notes that nine states have legalized  recreational weed: California, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada, Colorado,  Washington, Oregon, Alaska. Meanwhile, the South American nation of  Uruguay is the only country as a whole that has legalized recreational  pot.
