Canada to Become First G7 Nation to Legalize Marijuana

Published on December 5, 2015 by   ·   1 Comment


Proving once again that Canada is more progressive than its southerly neighbor, its government has just declared that it will legalize marijuana, making it the first of the seven major industrial nations (G7) to do so, per AFP via Yahoo News:

Canada will next year become the first country in the G7 bloc of leading economies to legalize marijuana, the government said Friday in a speech by the governor general.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had promised the move during the recent election campaign that swept his Liberals to power, after two previous administrations failed to follow through on a similar pledge.
