Canada makes history with first legal pot purchase in St. John's

The law is featured in a way according to the government to keep young people from using pot

The store will have "25 cannabis consultants standing by to serve", and feature about 85 different strains of marijuana plus oils, capsules and pre-rolled joints, according to a news release from the province. By his estimate there are hundreds of thousands of Canadians that carry personal possession charges for marijuana.

Rather, it will streamline the existing process of obtaining a record suspension. A suspension doesn't erase a record, but can make it easier to get a job, travel and generally contribute to society.

A patchwork of regulations has spread in Canada as each province takes its own approach within the framework set out by the Federal Government.

As of Tuesday the drug was illegal, and officials at the media briefing said any charges or cases before the courts could still be prosecuted after legalization.

The development comes as Canada legalizes so-called recreational marijuana beginning Wednesday.

Campion-Smith notes that the lead ministers on the cannabis file - Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor and Bill Blair, minister of border security and organized crime reduction are expected to speak to reporters on Wednesday morning.

Amazon's new Kindle Paperwhite adopts the best parts of the Kindle Oasis
The latest incarnation of the ebook reader is not only thinner and lighter than its predecessors, but also waterproof . Amazon dominates the e-book and e-reader market, but it does have new competition in the USA from Kobo and Walmart .

As one official put it, they don't expect the questions to end and foresee bumps along the way after legalization.

The premier also lashed out at the federal government for not providing police with a reliable piece of equipment to test for drug impaired driving.

That means provinces and territories will determine where it is sold, where stores operate and are located, along with the limits for possession, the minimum age required for purchase and consumption, restrictions on public use and additional requirements and prohibitions for growing pot at home.

The product would be returned to the branch if the person is underage, and a refund would be issued, the ministry says.

"It is very challenging to consume them in a safe way until those regulations are in place".
