Canada made history last night after passing a bill to legalize recreational marijuana, which puts Canada on track to become the first G7 country to repeal cannabis prohibition. The bill — which was introduced last April by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government — passed by more than a two-to-one margin as 200 members of parliament voted in favor of the legislation while only 82 opposed it.


Way to go Canada!


In its current form, Bill C-45 ('The Cannabis Act') would repeal prohibition for adults, setting the minimum age to buy marijuana at 18, but each province and territory will get the final say over the legal age in their jurisdiction. The bill allows individuals to possess up to 30 grams of marijuana at a time. And they can grow up to four plants in their dwelling (as long as the province okays home growing).

Being able to legally grow your own is a big part of what legalization should be. Places like Washington where recreational cannabis is legal but growing is illegal (unless medical) are woefully behind in that aspect.

Sitting here in America where federal legalization seems light years away and the Trump admin is currently trying to go after medical marijuana, it gives me hope to see other countries going forward.

Here's to reality driven policy.

In Arizona you can grow if you live outside of the 20-25 mile range, and I live outside of that ring.

You read my mind.



If things go south here in the states with the recreational laws that may be where I move next.

Aside from the growing it hasn't been seriously attacked by law enforcement for years. Not much f a change really.
