First legal cannabis in Canada sold in St. John’s

This man was the only person to smoke marijuana during 420 protests in London

Ford said by rushing legal cannabis out of the door before ensuring police have the tools they need, he said the Trudeau Liberals are putting people at risk. "We're not legalising cannabis because we think it's good for our health".

Bruce Linton, CEO of Tweed's parent company, Canopy Growth Corp., flew out to make the first sale at the St. John's location - and he landed on the island just in time, after a nasty storm delayed his flight. It also regulates and restricts access to it in Canada, meaning it lays out specific do's and don'ts for consumption of the drug across the country.

A patchwork of private and public cannabis retail stores and online sales have been set up across the 13 provinces and territories, ramping up to 300 storefronts by year's end, the government predicts.

The first BC Cannabis Store will open in Kamloops at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, October 17, after city council granted the shop approval this afternoon.

"Prohibition has ended right now".

Canada's first-ever legal purchase of recreational cannabis has been made in Newfoundland and Labrador, just after midnight local time.

In total, Statistics Canada says 5.4 million Canadians will buy cannabis from legal dispensaries in 2018 - about 15% of the population.

"Canada Post will undertake age-verification checks in the event that a customer appears to be under the age of 25 years".

The use of medical marijuana has been legal in Canada since 2001 and Justin Trudeau's government has spent two years working toward expanding that to include recreational marijuana.

Its implementation will be scrutinised and dissected by Canadians ahead of the next election in 2019, as well as other nations that the prime minister has said may follow suit if the measure proves a success.

Mr Trudeau has previously admitted to smoking pot five or six times in his life, including at a dinner party with friends after being elected to parliament.

The Canadian Press has learned the announcement on setting aside minor marijuana convictions of the past will come as the government ushers in a historic new era of legalized cannabis.
