Canada's Cannabis Act (C-45) Passes Second Reading At The Senate

Bill C-45 - better known as the Cannabis Act - has passed the second reading in Canada’s Senate.

Once passed through the House of Commons, bills are turned over to the Senate for a ‘sober second thought’. At the second reading, senators debate the principle of the bill. If it passes, it then goes to committee where amendments are proposed and debated. If it doesn’t. the legislative process begins anew in the House of Commons.

This secures a route to have cannabis legalized in Canada over the summer.

The final tally of votes was 44 for and 29 against.

More to come as the future of Cannabis in Canada continues to unfold.
