OTTAWA, Ontario — Canadians must wait till no less than early August or later to legally buy leisure marijuana.
As lately as final week, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s authorities was insisting it was on monitor for legalization in July.
However given a brand new Senate timetable to go the laws, Well being Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor conceded Thursday it received’t be carried out in July.
Petitpas Taylor reiterated that provincial and territorial governments want eight to 12 weeks following senate passage and royal assent to arrange for retail gross sales. That places it in August and presumably not till a month later.
Legalization would make Canada the second nation to have nationwide legalization, after Uruguay.
Every province in Canada is developing with guidelines for the sale of leisure pot.
