Good news everyone, travel destination #3 in North America just moved to the top as marijuana is now 100% legal in Canada.
October 17, 2018 was a big day for the country, on that day The Cannabis Act which made Canada one of very few countries (along with Georgia, South Africa and Uruguay) where smoking pot for personal, medical and recreation purposes is not illegal.
There are other places on the globe with limited rights to use the herb, but only small number of countries with full legalization.
Government of Canada points out that there are 3 main reasons to legalize it:
- Keep it out of the hands of youth;
- Keep profits out of the pockets of criminals;
- Protect public health and safety by allowing adults access to legal cannabis.
There are already ads on YouTube with official messages from government, for example in Ontario the ad says that you actually can’t buy weed anywhere and from anyone, you have to buy it from a special governmental store. There are still some reasonable restrictions on where you can vape or smoke it, for instance you can’t use it in indoor common areas, enclosed public places and enclosed work places.
Of course you can’t use it close (<20 m.) to schools and places where children gather. Hospitals, hospices and care homes are also no smoking zones. Plus, it is illegal and dangerous to smoke while you drive.
