Recreational marijuana legal in Canada

Recreational marijuana is now legal across Canada, making it the first G-7 country to do so, and the second country in the world next to Uruguay.

The green light is on to buy and use recreational marijuana across Canada, and reactions were varied to legalized pot.

From long lines at government retail stores, to website pictures of what products are available to buy.

This Filipino restaurant downtown recently had “Mr. Pot Roast” on the menu, in honor of Canada’s legalization.

“We thought it would be a nice promotion if we dress up our suckling pig and Since its the legalization of Cannabis, we thought why not celebrate it,” said Matte Laurel. “This is the way to go to combat addiction and make sure kids in the communities are safe by imposing strict rukes and regulations and I’m very grateful Canada is way ahead of this.”

“The crimes gonna be lesser, nobody gonna sell marijuana on the street, its gonna be legalized.”

Rules vary from province to province, including the legal age of either 18 or 19, where to buy pot, and where one can legally smoke it.

Possession limit is 30 grams in public, but there is no limit on home use. Smoking pot while driving is a no-no. But despite restrictions, mothers like Nelia Lopez are worried.

“Some kids maybe won’t have the control for the substance, to use it to abuse themselves that’s a different part, my main concern now.”

The Cannabis Act was a campaign promise kept by prime minister Justin Trudeau to keep marijuana away from underage users.

    According to Leonardo “Addo” Velasco, a Canadian resident, legalizing marijuana in Canada is as dumb as California. The fancy word recreational marijuana is a politically correct way of convincing people to accept marijuana.

    Since it’s opening a few years ago, the marijuana addiction problem in California has tripled. Almost everywhere, someone is smoking marijuana and it is destroying reputation and image of various facilities…

          According to Leonardo “Addo” Velasco, a Canadian resident … Not a research. Please post your sources for verification. Stop making stupid comments on every post. Shouldn’t you be shooting up by now?

            Tits Arbi, you should look at your self in front of the mirror… i don’t see anything as informational from your one sentence comments that seemed as though you pulled some hair from your rear end. I referenced my comments from people who reside in the area of the topic (e.g. Canada, San Diego, Philippines, etc.) and these people are from the community. To me, you don’t have that capability, except that you sounded like someone dropped you a few times as a baby… Work on your own topic and try to be a intellectual, even just a bit “Tita”… by the way, Arbi is also known as abi or taro…
