Canada Second Country In The World To Legalize Cannabis
Today, Canada is the second country in the world to legalize recreational cannabis. Uruguay in South America was the first country to legalize, in 2013.
Canada has had legal medical marijuana since 2001, but now are fully legalizing it. People can buy cannabis in stores or online.
The government will allow provinces to set their own regulations, like how much cannabis people will be allowed to possess. Another example, in some provinces, the minimum age for purchase is 18, others have set it at 19.
Parks Canada, the country’s national park agency, announced that people will be allowed to use marijuana at campsites, in designated areas.
The government also announced that Canadians will be allowed to take up to 30 grams of cannabis with them on domestic flights, on either checked or carry on bags. Smoking marijuana is not allowed on commercial flights, but other marijuana items are allowed such as edibles, oils, etc.
People who have a criminal record for pot possession will be allowed to apply for a pardon, to clear their record.
Cannabis is still illegal in the US under federal law, but nine states and Washington DC have legalized it.

The police is looking for a man named David Weaver who is 37 years old from British Columbia (B.C.) Canada. He is wanted for assault causing bodily harm and mischief interfere with property. Last Friday at 8pm, David went to a place called Medieval Times and Dinner Tournament in Toronto. The workers at the place asked David to leave so David got angry and shattered two glass doors. He assaulted a man who was smoking cigarettes outside of the place. The victim suffered two black eyes and a broken tooth. About two hours later, the police got a call from a place named Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. The same man, David, stripped naked and jumped into a tank full of sharks. He spent several minutes swimming then got out. There is a video that shows David swimming in the tank and he did one backwards dive. There is another video that shows the sharks and fish were not amused. None of the animals were hurt or the tank was damaged. The police did originally think it was two separate incidents until they realized based on the photos, it was the same man, David, at the medieval place and the aquarium. So, right now the police is looking for David.
