Watch: How Legalization Could Change Canada

Much has been made about the Liberal Party's recent win in Canada, and its promise to legalize recreational cannabis in the country. Last night, Canada's national broadcaster ran an item on its evening newscast that examined what legalization could mean for the country. It's a quick piece worth watching for Canadians, those watching the upcoming federal debates in the United Sates, and anyone living in a state contemplating legalization as well.

Latest.

Lawmakers in Quebec failed to pass a bill that would have increased the minimum age for purchasing and consuming cannabis from 18 to 21 before the end of the legislative session. When the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) was elected to power in Quebec last year, they brought with them a promise to raise the legal age for buying and consuming recreational cannabis. Right now, anyone 18 or older can legally purchase cannabis in Quebec, which is tied with Alberta for having the lowest legal age for recreational cannabis.
