Canadian Joints Running Out of Weed After Legalization

The Youth Link Calgary Police Interpretive Centre has been running free Cannabis Education sessions since June

"This is never actually going to be smoked".

As hundreds formed queues around the block, 46-year-old Ian Power was first in line at a store in the city of St. John's. He said he just needs to look at Washington state, where less-regulated medical dispensaries are more popular than highly restricted recreational stores five years after legalization. First Nations communities will also be provided with a similar opportunity to prohibit cannabis retail and delivery within their communities, which will not be time limited. That means a good deal of consumption in Canada will be confined to the home, however a good deal of landlords are likely to ban Marijuana consumption in rented properties.

Flying with pot from Vancouver to Montreal, on the other hand, is perfectly legal so long as you meet the age requirement and carry no more than 30 grams of cannabis.

Many had turned out to buy weed despite not being frequent users of the drug, wanting to be part of an iconic day in the nation's drug laws.

Can I fly to Canada and spark up like a local?

Please, save yourself a lot of trouble. Whether you are entering or leaving Canada, it is illegal to have marijuana with you, and you could face criminal charges.

China to end electricity costs with a fake moon
Officials in China are planning to launch a man-made moon to rest in the sky above the south-western city of Chengdu. The device, dubbed Znamya 2, collapsed soon after take-off and was subsequently abandoned .

"I do not usually smoke but since it was a historic day for Canada I thought I'd try", she told AFP.

The Progressive Conservative government's bill changing previously established regulations on where recreational pot can be used was put to a final vote around 4:40 p.m. after closing statements from legislators, with 69 voting in favour and 41 against.

The government is set to announce Wednesday that it will make it easier for Canadians who were convicted of possessing small amounts of marijuana to obtain a pardon, said a government official familiar with the plan who confirmed it but was not authorized to speak publicly about it. The production, distribution or sale of cannabis products is an offense for minors. The Democrats have proposed legalization legislation if they take control of Congress this November.

"LPs point to a number of factors in reduced product volume and assortment including issues with supply chain, lower than expected crop yields, and insufficient supply of packaging materials", the spokeswoman said in an email. Stringent rules will still govern the purchase and use of marijuana.

Where Else Is It Legal? In Alberta, a government website that sells pot crashed when too many people tried to place orders.

Canada is only the second country in the world, after Uruguay, to legalize it. A series of Mexico Supreme Court rulings beginning in 2015 began laying the groundwork for marijuana legalization by holding that people should have the right to grow and distribute marijuana for personal use.

The position of the CCCB is shared by Pope Francis, who has pointed out that "the legalization, even partial, of so-called "soft drugs" - beyond being at least questionable from the legislative point of view - does not produce the desired results" (speech to participants in the 31st International Drug Enforcement Conference, Rome, 20 June 2014).
