Liberals Introduce Bills to Legalize Canadian Marijuana by July 2018
Liberals Introduce Bills to Legalize Canadian Marijuana by July 2018 as Adults 18 and older will be able to legally buy and cultivate small amounts of marijuana for personal use.
Meanwhile, selling the drug to a minor will become a serious new criminal offence under the federal Liberal government’s proposed new legal-pot regime.
A suite of legislation introduced Thursday would, once passed, establish a “strict legal framework” for the production, sale, distribution and possession of pot, and make it against the law to sell cannabis to youth or use a young person to commit a cannabis-related crime.
New penalties would range from a simple police citation to 14 years behind bars.
