How did Canada do during the first days Cannabis was legalized?

Canadian stores run out cannabis days after legalisation of drug

US Customs and Border Protection invited Canadian media to a conference call on Tuesday so officials could reiterate that marijuana remains illegal under US federal law and that those who are caught at the border with marijuana are subject to arrest and prosecution.

Is the legalization of recreational pot, or its more benign term cannabis, an exploitation of our country's youth and "wanna be" greedy entrepreneurs under the guise of keeping our children safe from black market pot dealers? Canada became the second on Wednesday and its size and global standing likely will encourage others to follow. A case in Canada occurred for the first time. "We're not known as wild and insane". Canada is about to legalize marijuana; here's why California should care. He'll meet with a corporate business partner and talk with policymakers in Sydney and Melbourne. All eyes are on Canada, the biggest country yet to legalize pot. The federal government has left the country's 13 provinces and territories to set their own rules, creating a patchwork of regulations.

Marijuana was already legal in some areas of the country for medical purposes only.

Canada's federal approval has given its industry a huge advantage over its American counterpart, including unfettered access to banking and billions of dollars in investment.

As store lines grew and the online orders were processed, the jokes also continued to roll in and companies started using legalization day as a marketing tool for various products - particularly "munchie" snacks. MI pot industry faces legal obstacles. New York Assembly candidates differ on marijuana legalization. Mexico, the Netherlands and Italy are among other nations that have been mulling legalization.

Reform advocates have been promoting marijuana legalization in Italy for years, without success.

"Mexico is really the significant comer in this debate", says John Walsh, of the advocacy group Washington Office on Latin America.

"Once you see Grandma and Uncle Ted using medical cannabis to manage their arthritis pain, suddenly the substance is not so scary and not so stigmatized", he said. Before legislators move forward with legalization, they should consider all the risks, as well as potential benefits. "I do not usually smoke but since it was a historic day for Canada I thought I'd try".

The first person to buy legal weed was Ian Power from the province of Newfoundland. And "How are the cops going to know that I'm driving high?" Buyers can't touch or smell before they buy.

"It's a candy store, I like the experience", said Vincent Desjardins, a 20-year-old-student who plans to apply for a job.

At least 111 legal pot shops are planning to open across the nation of 37 million people on the first day, according to an Associated Press survey of the provinces.
