Marijuana is finally legalized
The day has finally come and gone. On Oct. 17, 2018, Canada became the 2nd nation in the world to legalize recreational marijuana. there were celebrations across the nation as many lined up in front of pot retailers in anticipation of its legal legalization at the stroke of midnight of that day. For some, it was a nightmare come true, a sign of the end times. For others, it was exactly what they've been waiting for, the beginning of a new era, of freedom, of high kites and cloudy realms. 420 all the way.

Medicinal marijuana is the use of cannabis to treat a symptom or condition, and some chemicals in cannabis can be found today in some medicines like painkillers and cough syrups. Recreational marijuana is used as a means to modify one?s mental state to influence perceptions and feelings, in the same way and for the same reasons that alcohol or other hard drugs is consumed.

What was the rationale behind lifting the marijuana prohibition? Well, In 2014, Uruguay legalized Cannabis for recreation and regulated its production and sale by official registration of buyers and growers. Canada is looking to mirror this style, meaning the dealing of marijuana and selling to minors will still remain illegal, however you can grow it in your home, or buy limited supplies directly from the government.Will the lift really eradicate the illegal multi-million dollar industry?, or will they still remain fully active anyway?

Time will eventually tell if this was the best or the worst decision the Canadian government has ever made. It is indeed the dawn of a new era.
