Senate to Vote on Weed Legalization This Week
The Waiting Game A word of caution: you will not be able to buy recreational weed following the (hopefully) good news after Thursday. It will still take around 10-14 weeks before the provinces will begin selling their respective stocks of legal recreational weed (whether through brick and mortar stores, a dispensary in Quebec, a dispensary in Nova Scotia, and others). This is because there are still some regulatory rules that the government needs to fine tune. This is just how things will be before everything can be fully launched, based on comments made by Senator Tony Dean, who can be credited for sponsoring Bill C-45. According to Senator Dean, everyone can probably expect sales to begin sometime during August’s last week or even somewhere in the beginning to mid-September. If you want to buy weed online Quebec for recreational purposes, expect availability around three months from now. Senator Dean is also quick to remind that it may even take up until October’s first week to get everything just right and ready – and as the bill’s sponsor, he is willing to take as long as it needs to ensure that everything will go as smoothly as possible. This care and concern for the passing of Bill C-45 comes with the awareness that Canada will become the second or even third jurisdiction in the world (at the heels of Uruguay and Portugal, with Portugal totally decriminalizing all drugs) to legally allow the sales and consumption of recreational marijuana. While Canada is not exactly going to be the first in the world to get it done, it will certainly exercise the most caution to ensure that everything goes smoothly and all concerns have been duly addressed – especially since the whole world will be watching. The Senate voting body is composed of 43 Independents, 11 Liberals, 32 Conservatives, 6 representatives who do not have affiliations, and 13 seats that are vacant, to make up 105 seats in total.
