Aurora Cannabis to make NYSE debut next week

Recreational marijuana is now completely legal in Canada

Originally from Boston, but now living in Montreal, MacDonald said he hoped the USA would follow Canada's lead and legalise recreational weed. "I think Canada is at the forefront of a global mega trend".

Marijuana enthusiasts in St. John's, the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada's easternmost province, kicked off legal sales at midnight, with over 100 people lining up outside a Tweed-branded store owned by Canopy Growth Corp. "Young Canadians have the highest usage of marijuana anywhere in the world. criminal organizations and street gangs make over C$6 billion a year on the sale of marijuana across the country".

"This is awesome. I've been waiting my whole life for this", Mr Clarke said. "I am so happy to be living in Canada right now instead of south of the border". You need a license from the government to sell cannabis.

"U.S. laws will not change following Canada's legalization of marijuana", said a statement issued by U.S. Customs last month.

Mr Trudeau's office have said the prime minister "does not plan on purchasing or consuming cannabis once it is legalised". Quebec's new government has vowed to raise it further, to 21.

Canada becomes just the second country in the world to allow adult-use cannabis on Wednesday.

At least 111 legal pot shops were planning to open across the nation of 37 million people on the first day, according to an Associated Press survey - a small slice of what ultimately will be a much larger marketplace.

Under the new law, Canadians can also order marijuana through the mail.

For now, Vancouverites (that are 19 years of age or older) will be able to purchase legal cannabis online, or by travelling to Kamloops to check out the only currently open brick-and-mortar store.

About 90 minutes before the store opened, 60 or so people were lined up on the sidewalk in the heart of downtown Montreal.

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

Doors to the shop opened at 10:00 a.m. today, October 17, after the much anticipated legal cannabis legislation came into effect.

Coalition spokesperson Pamela McColl said she believes legalization normalizes a risky substance and positions Canada to be the base of the marijuana industry's global expansion. Other products that are popular in some USA states - edibles, for instance - are not available for legal purchase yet across the border, though you can cook and consume them in someone's home, according to Canada's Global News.

Canada's legalization has left proponents in the USA calling for Congress to act. Sen.

Shortly after 9 a.m. local time, 48 of 97 available flower products were sold out on the B.C. cannabis online store.

"They can't come in the store, but they can see the line, see this important moment in Canadian history", Fencott said.

To order online, you'll go to the website www.bccannabisstores.com, which is governed by the BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB).

The country's incoming interior minister, Olga Sánchez Cordero, participated in some of those rulings as a Supreme Court justice and has said she will push for broad marijuana legalization.
