Canada Just Passed Legislation To Legalize Marijuana Nationwide: Report

Canada has made history on Monday after legalizing recreational marijuana nationwide.

On Monday, the House of Commons voted 205-82 in favor to accept some of the Senate’s proposed amendments on the bill.

The House of Commons’ decision sends the legislation to the upper chamber for a final vote. The decision, which is expected to be made soon, will lift a 95-year-old ban on recreational marijuana.

According to CTV News, lawmakers said that they expect marijuana to be legal and available by September, making it possible for people over 18 to buy it.

The House of Commons voted 205-82 to accept some of the Senate’s proposed amendments on the bill, sending the bill back to the upper chamber for continued debate and a final decision.

In the United States, medical marijuana has been made legal in more than two dozen countries, while recreational marijuana is legal in nine states and Washington, D.C.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has constantly been against the use of marijuana – be it medical or not – reversed an Obama-era Cole memo back in January that allowed states to legalize recreational marijuana
