By Hanna Anderson from OMQ law office
Even before winning the federal elections, current Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, promised to legalize cannabis for recreational use (it’s already been legal for medical purposes). The process has begun under the new liberal government, but until laws and regulations are put into order, it’s important to remind Canadians - marijuana is still illegal!
The new task force led by Minister of Justice Jody Wilson-Raybould over the next four months will be working alongside provincial, territorial, indigenous and territorial governments, as well as experts in health care, criminal justice, economics, industry and law enforcement. The main purpose is to make sure that marijuana will be out of reach of children and won’t fall into illegal tracks.
But, Canada is not alone in this situation. Over time, many countries have gone through the same process. From Australia to Europe and even America. The OMQ law firm from Toronto made this following infographic comparing marijuana regulations in the USA, Portugal, and Netherlands. And it shows some interesting facts.
For example, in five US states where marijuana is legal, it is allowed by law to smoke the substance as long as it’s not in public, while in the Netherlands using the substance is only allowed in licensed coffee shops. There are strict rules about selling and growing, which differ from country to country, and from state to state.
Let’s take a look at the marijuana laws and regulations in the USA, Netherlands, and Portugal.
