America's northern neighbor says pot proposals will be introduced in 2017.By Eugene Daniels | April 20, 2016
Just in time for every pot lover's favorite holiday, Canada announced it will be introducing legislation next spring to legalize the sale of marijuana. Canada's health minister made the announcement to the United Nations on Wednesday.
"While this plan challenges the status quo in many countries, we are convinced it is the best way to protect our youth while enhancing public safety," Health Minister Jane Philpott said.
Philpott said the details of the legislation are still being worked out but made it clear they want to keep marijuana out of the hands of children.
