The war on weed finally has an end date in sight—July 1, 2018.
According to CBC News, the Liberal government will announce the plan for the legal weed regime in early April, paving the way for cannabis to be fully above board by next Canada Day.
Liberal MP and former Toronto police chief Bill Blair briefed members of his party on the pending rollout over the weekend, the CBC reports.
While the details of legalization remain unclear, the government’s task force issued a comprehensive set of recommendations in December, including:
- a legal age of 18
- a four-plant limit for Canadians who want to grow
- public possession of up to 30 grams
- strict advertising rules
