Canadian Senate will be voting on Thursday (6/7/2018) on bill C-45. And if this bill passes, weed would be legal from now on in Canada. But only for people over 18 years old. This bill has been already passed by the House of Commons. From what I have heard, it is supported by the Prime minister Justin Trudeau, which have spoken on this topic many times in past.
Whatever the outcome will be, this 15 month journey of bill c-45 is finally coming to a final decision.
If the bill passes Canada will be a leader in legalization of cannabis and it would boost Canada’s economy. There are even predictions, that it could boost the Canadian economy by 6 billion dollars. More than half of this number would be coming from recreational sales and rest of it will be for medical sales, littler over 1.5$ billion.
But even if the bill passes, legal weed will be more than heavily regulated. Also people won’t be able to carry more than 30 grams of dried weed. If someone exceeds this amount in a public area and this includes if you are for example in your car with 30 grams +, you can get up to 5 year sentence !
