Cannabis Legislation

/ 97.3 The Eagle
             Liberal legislation to legalize marijuana has been given final approval in the House of Commons. Bill C-45 passed by a vote of 200-to-82, marking what Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould called an ”important milestone” in the Trudeau government’s plan to keep pot profits out of the hands of organized crime. The bill now moves to the Senate for further debate, but Conservatives are threatening to hold it up. The Opposition wants the government to reconsider its arbitrary timeline for implementing marijuana legalization and is proposing it be delayed by a year to July 2019.
